SOLNA, Sweden – February 22, 2016 – Body Bloom® (Bond Detox AB) brings LED BB Mask to customers in Sweden for the first time. BB Mask is an anti-aging device that uses near infrared light to penetrate deep layers of skin and stimulate collagen and elastin.
ABOUT COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN
Collagen and elastin are the structure of the skin. Collagen gives your skin strength. Elastin enables your skin to stretch and bounce back. These 2 proteins are produced by fibroblast cells. “The skin’s healing process is driven by these cells, which race to repair skin by making a scar or replenishing collagen to rebuild the structural integrity of the skin. It’s probably no surprise to learn that as we age these cells get lazy and slow down production of this coveted protein,” says Dr. Ellen Marmur, MD, author of Simple Skin Beauty.
The only way to boost collagen and elastin is to turn on the fibroblast cells. This can be done using cosmetic products containing retinoids, retinol, alpha hydroxys or peptides and by having procedures like microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser resurfacing. And by non-invasive near infrared light therapy.
SPACE TECHNOLOGY FOR BEAUTY
The light treatment was pioneered by NASA together with Quantum Devices Inc. They started by using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for plant growth acceleration in space. NASA subsequently identified another need that could be addressed with the LEDs: astronaut health. Preventing bone and muscle loss and boosting the body’s ability to heal wounds. It’s possible because exposure to high-intensity, wavelength-specific light can stimulate cellular function. For example, near infrared light increases collagen and elastin production by fibroblast cells, which accelerates wound healing and has anti-aging effect.
Near infrared devices created by NASA were small and hand-held. BB Mask covers your entire face. You just put it on, press the button and relax, maybe take a nap. The mask will automatically turn off at the end of a 17-minute session.
LED MASKS BECOME FAMOUS
LED masks were relatively unknown until Jessica Alba, actress and founder of Honest Company, made news in 2015 sharing photo of herself using a LED mask with her 7 million followers on Instagram. Us Weekly and several other outlets around the world ran a story about her. According to Shani Darden, Jessica Alba’s skincare guru, “LED facial masks, also known as Color Light Therapy, use UV-free, specific wavelengths to boost collagen production, promote circulation, treat existing acne and kill bacteria, as well as accelerate skin recovery.”
Pricing and Availability
Color Light Therapy doesn’t have to be reserved only for Hollywood celebrities.
