Introducing Dr. Ayah, an aesthetics doctor, light therapy expert and owner of Harmony Medical based in both Halifax and on London’s Harley Street. As someone who's had a history dealing with severe eczema and acne, she understands the effect skin concerns can have on your confidence.
In clinic, Dr. Ayah treats everything from acne and rosacea to melasma and hyperpigmentation using powerful, medical-grade LED devices. But that’s not all. “I’ve treated multiple patients with at-home devices and they’ve worked significantly,” she explains. “What we find is that at-home devices are fantastic at supporting what we do in-clinic, and they really do enhance the results.”
LED (light-emitting diode) red light therapy has been clinically proven to reduce inflammation, improve skin firmness and tone while increasing collagen. Collagen is the protein that makes up the architecture of our skin – making it firmer, smoother and younger-looking.
"When my patients come into my clinic, 90% of them already treat themselves at home with LED red light therapy devices and effective skincare. Which means they don’t need to see me a lot,” she laughs. “I’m just there as a bootcamp or an enhancing top up!”
"Red light and near-infrared light wavelengths really help to reduce inflammation and create collagen." If you’re struggling with acne, using an LED red light therapy mask can actually reduce the redness or hyperpigmentation by simply calming the inflammation.
We know that the less inflammation there is, the faster acne and other blemishes heal with minimal to no scarring. Integrate red and near-infrared LED light therapy consistently into your skincare routine for lasting, optimised skin health and resilience.
Treat your LED red light therapy mask like a sheet or clay mask – use over clean, dry skin. Dr. Ayah recommends layering with a performance-enhancing hydrating serum to maximise the LED benefits, like the CurrentBody Skin Green Tea Serum. Once your treatment time is up, then you can continue with the rest of your skincare regimen.
Layering LED red light therapy devices allows you to target certain areas more intensely, similar to a gym workout. If you want to train specific muscles, then you focus on those during your session – the same goes for LED. “Layering allows you to create a custom LED package tailored to your concerns, rather than those of the masses.”
While she agrees you can use a full LED face mask to get an overall improvement, her personal favourite 'Avenger mask' is the CurrentBody Skin LED Eye Perfector. “The reason I like this product so much is because it works really nicely for me and the results are significant.” This specific device blurs fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and brows, while reducing dark circles and eye bags.
As for her second favourite at-home LED red light therapy device, the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask features heavily in her in-clinic treatments. “I’ve used it in my clinic with a lot of my patients, particularly those struggling with inflammatory problems such as mild cases of eczema, dermatitis and an impaired skin barrier.” She mentions, “Continual use of this mask really just improves the quality of the skin, as well as healthy skin barrier function.”
If one of your primary skin concerns includes reducing or preventing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, try the CurrentBody Skin LED Lip Perfector. Plump your pout with the collagen-boosting combination of amber, red, deep red and near-infrared LED wavelengths. The more focused the LED diodes, the better results you'll see for each area.
“I’ve personally tried and trust these CurrentBody Skin products," says Dr. Ayah. And she's not alone. As seen before red carpet events, celebrity makeup artists, A-lister's and dermatologists love the benefits of CurrentBody Skin LED devices.
As quoted from the Evening Standard, “We had high hopes for CurrentBody's own-brand LED mask – and we weren’t disappointed. For pre-party prep, this treatment has you covered.” Have you seen the benefits of at-home red light therapy yet? If not, now's the perfect time.
