As many beauty trends emerge year after year, one, in particular, has proven to showcase what the future of skincare really has to offer. As the first of its kind, The LOOKEE® G-Mask has established itself as a facial treatment that is highly effective in treating skin conditions without any adverse side effects.
Infrared Waves & Its Skin Benefits
Just like topical skin care products, light can penetrate and be absorbed by the receptors of the skin. Hence, specific wavelengths are used to treat conditions including acne, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and even inflammation.
A study conducted by The Yonsei University College of Medicine focused on the impact of infrared light in stimulating collagen and elastin production in dermal fibroblasts (the cells responsible for secreting collagen proteins). In the experiment, 20 patients who suffered from facial wrinkles and hyperpigmentation were exposed to far-infrared radiation on a daily basis for six months. During the treatment, medical observers conducted clinical evaluations every four weeks, and the results obtained showed that the collagen and elastin produced by the fibroblasts increased after infrared radiation. Patients reported improvements in skin texture, roughness, and skin tone.
As the study shows, one of the primary uses of far infrared waves as a facial treatment is to stimulate the production of collagen. This protein is essential for maintaining our skin's health. The body produces less collagen as it ages, which leads to the formation of spots, wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin. You can benefit from increased cellular repair and blood circulation by regularly going for infrared facial treatments. Your skin will gradually begin to repair itself to appear healthier.
The LOOKEE® G-Mask VS Traditional Facial Treatments
LED light therapy has been increasing in popularity amongst skincare enthusiasts. However, there is skepticism about its effectiveness. LED stands for Laser-emitting diode. This means that the treatment uses specific wavelengths of light to treat different facial conditions, and it is commonly administered with the use of an LED face mask or an LED wand.
In comparison to infrared therapy, we see that LED therapy is non-thermal and only as effective on the surface of the skin. In contrast, infrared light can be used on the epidermis, and it can penetrate 1,5 inches into the body, reaching the deeper layers of the skin. Infrared sits right next to red light on the electromagnetic spectrum at 800nm to 1millimeter, while Red LED light occupies the end of the visible spectrum with wavelengths of 630nm-700nm.
The reason that the LOOKEE® G-Mask makes use of infrared light is because LED has the potential to burn skin, damage vision, and disturb the central nervous system. Not only are far infrared waves more effective, they gradually warm up the subcutaneous tissue, improve product absorption, are invisible to human eyes, and of course, are 100% safe. The G-Mask emits wavelengths of 6 - 14 μm. Commonly referred to as “The Light Of Life,” these wavelengths are the same ones naturally emitted from the human body. By utilizing a light that resonates with human cells, our device is able to dramatically enhance the beauty, health, and function of your skin.
One of the perks of the G-Mask is that it’s also 100% mess-free compared to other facial treatments. Many individuals go for treatments such as micro-needling, skin laser, and chemical peels, or even use medication such as Accutane, which can have side effects or irritate the skin. The G-Mask provides noticeable results while being non-invasive and accommodating sensitive skin types. It can be expensive to attend multiple sessions for different skin care procedures. By purchasing your own G-Mask, you can comfortably incorporate infrared light therapy into your skincare routine. Why pay a fortune for expensive treatments when you can rejuvenate your skin from the comfort of your home.
How To Use The LOOKEE® G-Mask For Glowing, Radiant Skin
The G-Mask has different functions that provide unique skin benefits. The first being using the device as a treatment to combat acne and promote cellular regeneration. By balancing the production of sebum and stimulating the skin to detoxify itself of impurities, the G-Mask not only proves to be an effective acne spot treatment but reduces the chances of breakouts.
With regards to repairing damaged skin on a cellular level, consistent use of the G-Mask can include the following benefits:
- Skin rejuvenation & restoration.
- Brightens skin to fade blemishes, hyperpigmentation & dark spots.
- Smoothing fine lines & wrinkles.
- Increasing blood circulation & skin metabolism.
- Tightening skin & shrinking pores.
- Strengthening skin immunity & tolerance.
You can also use the device in conjunction with other facemasks and products to improve their overall effectiveness. By putting on the G-Mask beforehand, it opens up your pores for maximum absorption, and wearing the device after you’ve completed your skincare routine promotes synergetic absorption. Our skin’s absorption increases by ten times its normal rate when the deep-skin temperature is increased by just 1-degree Celsius. However, If your skin temperature is below 28°C (82.4°F), your products won’t be absorbed as well due to your pores being closed. The G-Mask far infrared waves are able to surpass the surface skin, which allows for a phenomenal absorption boost. With daily use, the G-Mask will maximize the effectiveness of your facial skin care products & help you achieve unparalleled results.
The device has three temperature settings to suit your skin’s sensitivity. It automatically starts with the white light, at the low temperature of 122°F - 140°F (50°C - 60°C). As your skin gets used to the device, you can move up to the next level, which is the yellow light at a mid-temperature range of 140°F - 149°F (60°C - 65°C). Finally, once your skin has gradually improved, you can try red light, at the high temperature of 149°F - 158°F (65°C - 70°C). Each session lasts 30 to 40 minutes.
The G-Mask makes use of a unique nano-material known as graphene. It is composed of many honeycomb sheets of carbon that have been laminated together. Interestingly enough, graphene was the first two-dimensional material ever discovered. Yet, this material still remains known for its durability as one of the most robust materials on the planet.
As one of the lightest and strongest conductors discovered by man, graphene is seen as a material that will revolutionize the future of machinery and technology. The G-Mask uses graphene as it’s the only material that can generate the 6-14 μm "Light Of Life." As the material is transparent, super thin, and lightweight, the graphene mask allows for a seamless design that can be incorporated into your at-home beauty routine without any hassle.
Do Dermatologists Recommend Infrared Facial masks?
Infrared light therapy has been studied in dermatological laboratories around the globe. Research done by Harvard Medical School’s Department of Dermatology has shown that the treatment has massive skin care benefits as the photons emitted are absorbed by the body’s skin cells and stem cells. When our stem cells are activated, they help our tissue heal and repair itself quicker. Thus it has been scientifically proven that infrared waves can assist with reducing skin conditions such as wrinkles, sunburn, acne, and inflammation. Furthermore, all of this can be done with very little to no side effects. Dermatologists continue to study the effects of infrared light therapy as a form of facial skin care. They are discovering new benefits as it becomes a mainstream treatment in the cosmetic industry.
Safety around The LOOKEE® G-Mask
Many individuals opt for infrared light therapy as it is non-invasive and painless, but can it have aftereffects? The answer to that would be based on pre-existing skin conditions. Specialists recommend infrared light therapy to individuals with sensitive skin as an alternative to harsher forms of skincare. Far infrared won’t cause burning or tingling sensations even with extended use. It has a very gentle heat, ensuring that every G-Mask session is a pleasant skincare experience. It also doesn’t cause any type of damage or strain on the eyes—which makes it safe to use without eye protection.
However, it is essential to note that you should consult a dermatologist before using the device if you suffer from rashes. Also, the device should not be used in conjunction with facial skincare products that increase sensitivity to heat. These include whitening products, propylene glycol, acids, or alcohols.
Thankfully, The LOOKEE® Tech G-Mask™ offers a form of face mask skincare that allows you to take care of your skin without any hassle.
