Even after we go through adolescence, acne can plague us through our adult years. From hormonal acne (that crops up during “that time of the month”) to chronic acne that persists even when you use acne treatments, acne is a problem that affects millions of people around the world.
Fortunately, innovative scientists have been making breakthrough discoveries over the past several years, leading to effective tools and devices that combat existing acne, and help to prevent the formation of new breakouts. One of these pioneers in the field of anti-acne treatments is Neutrogena.
Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask
Once only available in Dermatologists’ offices, clinically proven light therapy to treat acne is now available at home with the patented Neutrogena® Light Therapy Acne Mask.
The Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask is suitable for mild acne (as shown above) to moderate acne. Since I tend to get hormone-induced breakouts around “that time of the month”, I’m excited to see how this tool helps to improve the appearance of my skin.
To teach us more about light therapy devices, Board-certified Dermatologist Dr. Jessie Cheung (of Jessie Cheung MD Dermatology & Laser Center) explained how these devices work, and why these tools help to treat acne.
Cheung says that “Light Emitting Diodes, or LED’s, are low intensity energy devices that stimulate cellular activity without any heat or injury to the skin. LED photomodulation also decreases inflammation and reduces acne-causing bacteria. LEDs are popular since they are so safe and painless, with no downtime.”
This revolutionary product is lightweight and comfortable, making it a relaxing anti-acne treatment that you can use in the privacy and comfort of your home. The mask includes a viewing slot, which enables you to multi-task even while zapping away zits.
In a clinical study, results began in as little as 1-week, and continued to improve over time. Nearly 100% showed fewer breakouts after 12 weeks. Best results were seen after 12 consecutive weeks of use, so it’s advisable to use this mask daily for clearer, healthier skin.
The mask is chemical-free, FDA cleared, UVA/UVB-free and is not hot. It simply emits blue and red lights from the mask, which are proven to kill 99% acne-causing bacteria and reduce acne inflammation.
To use the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask, start by thoroughly cleansing your skin (with the Clean & Clear® Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes) before using the mask. Then put the mask on, activate the mask with the hand-held switch, and wear the mask for 10 minutes. The mask will emit a light will in use, and will automatically turn-off when the daily treatment is done. It’s that simple!
The mask comes with a 1-month supply (30-day of activator), so you’ll need to purchase a replacement activator (which costs $14.97 at Walmart) each month to continue the treatment.
The Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes easily remove oil, dirt, and even waterproof makeup (such as mascara) with just the swipe of the disposable cloth.
Plus, you don’t have to wash your face after using the cleansing wipe, as there’s no oily residue left on your skin. Not to mention – these cleansing wipes were designed to cleanse your skin without being over-drying or aggravating to sensitive, acne-prone skin.
Over the next 30-days, I’ll use this anti-acne mask and cleansing wipes and will be tracking my progress toward clearer, healthier skin. Stay tuned for a follow-up post next month.
The Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask and Clean & Clear Facial Wipes can be found in the skincare aisle at Walmart, next to the acne treatment products.
