Silicone or Transparent Light Shield, Which LED Mask Is Right For You?

Silicone or Transparent Light Shield, Which LED Mask Is Right For You?


LED light therapy (medically known as  photomodulation) has been around for some time! The idea started in the 80’s when NASA asked, 'how can astronauts sustain themselves while on deep space exploration?' While doing research they found that different colors stimulated plants to grow differently.  In the 90s NASA began using the technology to help with deep skin wounds that were a side effect to a chemotherapy treatment and then used to heal wounds in both the NAVY and Astronauts in outer space (Whelan, 2001).
The results were undeniable and impressive. In those early clinical studies was found that LED light boosted fibroblast cell growth by 140-200 % (Whelan, 2001) making this a unique way to heal skin and beyond. Since then there have been hundreds of studies published, demonstrating the various effects of different colors (spectrums) and how the penetrate the skin at different depths ultimately stimulating the different cells residing in those levels.

Light therapy is the same but every product on the market is different. Some have stronger intensity which would translate less LED light exposure needed to get the desired effect (less acne, minimized fine lines and wrinkles to name a few). Wanting to offer a product that meets the broad spectrum of everyone and their requirements we launched our VISIspec led mask which features 100 small LED light bulbs versus our HOW TO GLOW light shield mask that features light beads.


  1. Light Intensity

HOW TO GLOW LED light therapy shield mask has a lot less intensity so to obtain the desired effect you must wear the mask 30-45 minutes. VISIspec has a lot more light intensity so you need 5-10 minute light treatment to get the same cellular level stimulation. We recommend you use both masks 3-5 days per week, and of course follow the protocol of doing a light sensitivity test prior to using the first time.


  1. Color

HOW TO GLOW features Blue, Red, Amber and Green to learn about each color and its benefits click here and VISIspec features Blue, Red, Amber and proprietary mix of Red and blue. To learn more about VISIspec and its colors click here.


  1. Length of time and use

If you’re busy, or impatient the VISIspec would be a more suitable choice as you can wear it up to 5 minutes a day and get on with your life. HOW TO GLOW is a lesser financial investment however you need to use it for a longer period of time.



  1. Esthetic & comfort

HOW TO GLOW is clear and lighter than the VISIspec. With the VISIspec expect to hunker down and not be active whereas with the transparent shield you have the option to watch tv, check your emails etc.


  1. Price

Because of all of the outlined and combined above the two products are in two different tiers in terms of length and duration of use convenience as well as different product materials to produce each there is a price variability.


  1. Length of time to see results

Everyone’s biology responds differently to external stimuli so naturally everyone will respond to light therapy in a different manner. Aside from light therapy there are many other factors that influence how easily the skin changes such as lifestyle, diet, baseline of where your skin began its light therapy journey, and of course age. Overall, if all variables were adjusted to be the same because the VISIspec has a lot stronger intensity you will expect results slightly faster than the shield. How much? Again, that depends on many factors. On average timing (some more / some less) participants in trials responded after 3 months.
