Review: THERABODY Theraface Mask – Revitalizing Skincare Mask

Lighting the way to better skincare

“If you look good, you’ll feel good”. Never before has there been so much pressure to look good. Be it due to scientific evidence, or because we’re a society obsessed with being photographed much more, but it is apparent that we are obsessed with visage and looking good. Beauty may only be skin deep but first impressions count.

In 2022, the skincare industry revenue was over US$153.30 billion, and with projections of US$186.60 billion for 2024, when it comes to skincare, it’s big money. From conventional creams and lotions to chemical peel and collagen induction therapy, advances in skincare have been exploring beauty devices that provide greater therapeutic benefits. The exponential growth in the industry ensures considerable investment and research into developing new, safer and more effective skincare therapies – a market space worth competing for.

Over time, skincare has been continually reshaped by evolving research and technological discoveries. The understanding of how to nurture and care for our skin has been significantly aided by technology. Standing at the crossroads of science and beauty, providers now offer combinations of cutting edge technology with effective beauty solutions.

Double the Benefit

Traditional cream and lotions treat the skin’s surface only. For more effective skincare, there are other therapies, which affect the layers below the skin’s surface, working deeper to give more beneficial treatment. LED light therapy has become increasingly popular for consumers seeking science-backed, non-invasive solutions for their skincare. Vibration therapy too has scientifically proven benefits of its own. Therabody recognised the merits of both therapies and paired them to create the Theraface Mask, a double dose of skincare treatment offering maximum benefit.

Understanding LED Light Therapy

LED (light emitting diode) therapy is a skincare treatment using varying wavelengths of light, including red, blue and infrared, to stimulate the skin and tissue beneath, with science-backed benefits on facial and skin health. Therapeutic light treatments use different parts of the light spectrum, with varying depths of tissue penetration, to promote beneficial health effects. The shorter wavelengths act and benefit the surface of the skin. The longer wavelengths penetrate deeper into the epidermal layers improving fine lines and wrinkles. Infrared light, the longest wavelengths, reach even deeper below the skin into the underlying tissue helping to reduce the appearance of dark spots.

What is Vibration Therapy

Vibration therapy creates a massage effect that helps relieve tension in treatment areas by boosting circulation, stimulating local blood flow and tissue oxygenation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to the treatment area, reviving them resulting in a refreshed appearance.

Hands-free, hands on

The cordless, hands-free design with removable protective eye shields, lets you beautify on the go, so you’re not stuck lying on the sofa waiting for it to work its magic, but instead making it easier to multi-task during your skin-care routine. So, if you’re feeling brave, you can get onto your work zoom call… just ensure your camera is turned off or your colleagues might assume you’re moonlighting as The Phantom of the Opera!

What’s under the Mask?

The TheraFace Mask contains 648 medical-grade red, infrared and blue LED lights allowing the optimal light dose to be delivered to the entire face, plus vibration therapy. There are 17 QX-Micro Motors massaging pressure points on the face and scalp to help keep you calm and relaxed while reviving the surrounding treatment area. Users can select between a full 9-minute treatment or if time is short, a 3-minute session which targets specific areas. Either option will be sure to enhance both the way you look and feel. The TheraFace Mask is a definite front runner in skincare therapy, allowing you to put your best face forward effortlessly.
