The technology utilized in the illuMask Anti-Acne Mask is the same as what has been used by acne treatment dermatologists for many years.  The particular combination of red and blue light are designed to promote the best acne treatment possible.

Before understanding how the mask works, it is important to understand how acne develops on the skin.  There are glands under the surface of the skin that are designed to produce oil to keep the skin moisturized.  However, there are some situations in which these oil glands can begin to produce an excessive amount of oil (certain hormones, for example, can increase oil production, and is the reason why many women experience worse acne at particular times of the month compared to others).  Naturally occurring bacteria on the surface of the skin can begin to feed off this excessive oil, and their numbers can begin to multiply rapidly.  When these bacteria become very numerous, they can clog pores, which leads to pimples, redness, and inflammation of the skin.

The illuMask Anti-Acne Mask works by delivering blue light to the surface of the skin to kill any bacteria.  This blue light kills bacteria as the light is absorbed by these organisms, causes a photochemical reaction, and is very harmful to the bacteria.  This blue light even reaches beneath the surface of the skin to help stop bacteria from multiplying, thus preventing breakouts before they begin.

The red light delivered by the illuMask is designed to enhance the overall appearance of the skin by reducing the inflammation associated with skin irritation and breakouts.  This therapeutic red light also helps to even skin tone, enhance blood flow, and improve skin collagen levels for enhanced skin elasticity.  This can help enhance the youthful appearance of the skin.
