Launching my first FAB skincare range in 2021 felt like a new era, the result of years of hard work that I hoped would revolutionise my clients’ at-home beauty regimes.

Anyone who has had in-salon treatments with me will hopefully feel that FAB is a brand they could unequivocally trust to deliver on its promises, and I wanted to make sure clients could take that feeling of knowing you’ve done something good for your skin, and putting yourself first, home with them too.

Not one to shy away from trying something new, finding treatments and products that will enhance the services I offer is what led me to developing the FAB skincare range, and last year led me on a quest to find the perfect manufacturer for LED light technology - it seemed like a seamless expansion to the Fab Skincare range. After months of research, trials, and conversations with experts in the technology, I’m happy to announce that soon we’ll be bringing the best at-home beauty devices for my clients to achieve glowing, healthy skin anywhere, reaffirming FAB’s commitment to what we do.


LED light therapy involves various wavelengths corresponding to different colours, each penetrating the skin at different depths. You will most commonly find red, blue, yellow, and near-infrared lights. Each wavelength provides different benefits for your skin:

RED LIGHT: 630nm
  • Helps reduce inflammation
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Evens skin tone
  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles

    BLUE LIGHT: 460nm
  • Destroys acne-causing bacteria
  • Helps prevent further breakouts
  • Reduces inflamation and scars
  • Reduces excessive oil
  • Increases skin oxygen

    YELLOW LIGHT: 590nm
  • Penetrates deeper layers of skin
  • Balances skin texture
  • Helps reduce puffiness
  • Improves lymphatic drainage
  • Reduces redness

  • Targets the fibroblast, stimulating more collagen
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Starts the healing process
  • Can be used to complement any of the other lights.


  • LED (meaning Light Emitting Diode) light therapy can be effective for various skin concerns when used appropriately, and tends to work for most skin types too - although individual results will vary. In a nutshell, it’s a non-invasive and painless treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate skin cells, promote collagen production, reduce inflammation, and address various skin concerns.

    The key to achieving noticeable results with LED light therapy is consistency! Using your device regularly, most people will see improvements after just a few weeks of consistent use. The duration of each at-home LED session can vary, but we’d recommend using the device for 10-20 minutes per session, and a few times each week. Use it in conjunction with your usual skincare routine and treatments to further enhance its effectiveness. Consider it a well-deserved extension to your precious me-time!

    In terms of specific skin concerns, LED light therapy can be beneficial for those suffering with acne, hyperpigmentation and redness, and it can also help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, contributing to general skin rejuvenation and health.

    Different LED light colours have specific wavelengths that penetrate the skin at different depths and therefore should be used to target different skin concerns. For example, blue light is commonly used for acne treatment, while red light is known for its anti-aging and skin-rejuvenating properties.

    As with any new skincare treatment, it's advisable to have a chat with a skincare professional to determine the best approach for your specific skin concerns, so get in touch with us at FAB and we’ll be more than happy to get your started on your at-home LED journey!

    Contraindications and precautions
    While LED skin masks are generally safe and effective for many people, there are some contraindications and precautions to consider before using them. We advise consulting with a healthcare professional or dermatologist if you have any concerns or specific medical conditions.

    Continue reading for some common contraindications to using LED skin masks:?
  • Photosensitivity: Individuals who are sensitive to light or have any conditions requiring medications that increase sensitivity to light should avoid using LED skin masks.
  • Epilepsy: LED lights can flicker, and if you have a history of photosensitive epilepsy or seizures triggered by flashing lights, using an LED mask may not be suitable.
  • Skin Conditions: People with open wounds, infections, or active skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis on the treatment area should avoid LED therapy until the affected skin has healed.
  • Pregnancy: The safety of LED therapy during pregnancy is not well-established, so pregnant women should consult their healthcare provider before using LED skin masks.
  • If you have any existing medical issues or are currently undergoing treatment for skin cancer, consult with a dermatologist before using LED therapy.
  • Medications: Some medications may make your skin more sensitive to light or cause photosensitivity. Discuss your medications with a healthcare provider before using LED skin masks.
  • Allergies: If you are sensitive or allergic to any materials used in the mask, such as silicone or latex, it is your responsibility to ensure that the mask is suitable for your skin.
  • Eye Protection: LED masks emit bright light, which can be harmful to the eyes. Always use the included eye protection or close your eyes when wearing the mask to avoid potential eye damage.
  • Children: LED masks may not be suitable for children, as their developing skin may react differently to the therapy. Consult with a paediatrician before using these devices on children.
  • Recent Cosmetic

    Always read the manufacturer's instructions and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any doubts or specific medical concerns before using an LED skin mask. Individual responses to LED therapy may vary, so it's essential to prioritise safety and ensure the treatment is appropriate for your unique circumstances.
  • Sensitivity guidance for using an LED face mask is important to ensure you have a safe and comfortable experience. LED therapy is generally considered safe, but it's essential to take precautions, especially if you have sensitive skin.

    Continue reading for some tips on using an LED face mask if you have sensitive skin:

    Before starting any LED therapy, consult with a dermatologist or skincare professional who can properly assess your skin type, condition, and any underlying issues to determine if LED treatment is suitable for you. If you're new to LED therapy or have sensitive skin, we advise beginning with shorter sessions and lower light intensity settings. Over time, you can gradually increase the duration and intensity as your skin becomes accustomed to the treatment, provided there are no sensitivities showing up. Before applying the LED mask to your entire face, do a patch test on a small area of your skin to check for any adverse reactions or sensitivity. Wait for 24 hours to ensure there are no negative responses.

    LED masks can come with different colour options, each targeting specific skin concerns. Blue light is often used for acne-prone skin, while red light is for anti-aging, so make sure you choose the colour that addresses your specific needs and sensitivities. Before each session, always start with a clean face and apply a gentle, hydrating moisturiser to create a barrier between your skin and the mask. This can help reduce potential sensitivity and dryness. During the treatment, protect your eyes from the bright LED light with the included eye shields or by closing your eyes while the mask is on your face.

    After each session, keep your skin well-hydrated by drinking enough water and using a hydrating skincare routine. Take time to clean your LED mask after each use to prevent bacterial growth and potential skin issues. If you do experience any redness, irritation, or discomfort, reduce the frequency of your LED sessions. You can also skip treatments for a few days to allow your skin to recover. If you use other active skincare ingredients like retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), consider skipping them on the days you use the LED mask to prevent excessive sensitivity. And lastly, pay attention to how your skin reacts during and after LED sessions. If you notice any persistent irritation or worsening sensitivity, discontinue use and consult a dermatologist.

    Remember that everyone's skin is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. Just like any other skincare treatment or product, it's essential to tailor your LED therapy to your specific skin type and sensitivity level. If in doubt, seek professional guidance from a dermatologist or skincare expert.
