For almost a decade, dermatologists have been making use of non-UV light to treat acne, and Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask is bringing that technology to consumers. The innovative product offers an in-home light therapy treatment that is completely safe for consumers, clearing up skin without the use of chemicals.
Research has shown that prolonged exposure to blue light kills the bacteria that causes acne, and prolonged exposure to red light reduces inflammation. The Light Therapy Acne Mask combines both of these wavelengths to bathe users in a soft purple glow. And since the Light Therapy Acne Mask's light is on the visible spectrum (meaning it isn't UV) it causes no harm to skin cells.
To use the mask, one simply washes their face, dons the headgear, and presses a button to activate it. Sessions take just 10 minutes, with no need for a timer since the mask turns off automatically.
