LED Devices For Hand Skin – What Are They For?

LED masks for at-home skin treatments are a big trend now but did you know that there are also LED devices for the hands? They look like a robotic glove and promise similar effects to the facial masks, like reducing signs of skin aging, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentations and age spots. 

They are a very interesting tool to have with this new age of constant hand washing and use of sanitizers and are ideal for people with sensitive hand skin and heal chapped skin, eases pain (including in the joints) and calms inflammation.

There are a few options on the market, like the CurrentBody Skin LED Hand Perfector , the handLITE Led Hand and Wrist Device. They have some differences but both have red LED lights and an efficacy similar to professional treatments that combine two different wavelengths of red light (633nm) and near infrared light (830nm). 

These devices usually require short sessions of 10 to 20 minutes, 3-4 times a week. Visible results will appear after 4 weeks of treatment and the procedure is completely pain free. They can be used before and after aesthetic treatments. A previous hand cleaning and application of an anti-aging serum, like hyaluronic acid, is recommended, as the lights will improve its absorption.

Hand care is often forgotten but hand is one of the first areas that show signs of ageing. Hands are exposed more often to different substances, surfaces, and liquids, which lessens the absorption of creams, as they may not stay on the hand skin for a long period of time. This way, the use of LED hand devices is an interesting tool to guarantee that your hand will stay young and healthy overtime.
