LED GLOW MASK FAQs
LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses the power of light to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It’s recommended for improving sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive and inflammatory conditions, wound healing and scarring as well as anyone looking to restore skin’s radiance.
A Portable and Professional Light Therapy device for use both at home and in clinics. The OLIVIEREWILSON GLOW Mask delivers the same clinically-proven wavelengths as light therapy treatments in professional salons.
The OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW Mask uses two proven wavelengths of light; 633nm Red light and 830nm Near-Infrared light.
These wavelengths have been shown in clinical studies to stimulate collagen and elastin production and improve circulation and tissue oxygenation through a process called photobiomodulation.
These effects help skin cells absorb topical skincare products more effectively and helps rebuild the structure of the skin.
Although skin naturally repairs itself on a daily basis, we use LED Light Therapy to enhance and boost that repair.
Your cells can’t absorb too much light - once they’re at full capacity, they will store the energy and use it as required.
Delivering dual optimised intensities of Red 633nm and Near-Infrared 830nm wavelengths, which are clinically-proven to restore skin hydration, firmness and improve wrinkles.
Portable, light-weight and will mould to every face shape thanks to the flexible medical-grade silicone material.
The head straps are user-friendly and made of the best quality to ensure fit and comfort, and are secure enough so the mask can be worn whilst doing other things.
Hands-free - no tethering to a wall.
Lays out entirely flat in the protective pouch provided, making it the perfect travel companion.
Global adaptors are provided so you can still get your OWGLOW Light Therapy whilst travelling.
Educational collateral is included with each device.
OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW MASK FACTS
The OLIVIEREWILSON GLOW Mask contains 132 LEDs: 66 x Red and 66 x Near-Infrared, encased in 66 sockets..
Cleverly engineered so each socket contains both wavelengths which can be delivered at the same time. Near-Infrared enhances the Red when combined.
The quality of the LEDs are crystal clear and are driven at optimal intensities, so the correct dose of light is delivered to make a difference to the skin.
Delivering 18 joules/cm2 in a 10 minute treatment, which equates to 30 milliwatts/cm2 of Near-Infrared 830nm and Red 633nm.
The OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW Mask uses a lithium-ion battery rated at 9.62Wh / 2200mAH.
If you are travelling by air, the battery should be carried in carry-on baggage and not checked-in.
The device must be completely switched off.
For further details on travelling with lithium-ion batteries, please consult your chosen airline.
We wanted to take the best bits from an advanced facial and deliver the most effective at-home rejuvenation treatment possible.
We made a conscious decision to concentrate on the two most clinically proven wavelengths to promote skin health and strength (Red 633nm and Near-Infrared 830nm).
Our device has been created with the best quality LEDs, delivering the correct wavelengths, at optimal intensities.
We also appreciate the merits of Blue Light 415nm. This specific wavelength targets bacteria that causes blemishes.
When applying Blue 415nm to the face, unlike Red and Near-Infrared light, eye protection shield is an absolute must.
We are considering launching a Blue light device in the future with plenty of supporting educational material.
We work with the best in light therapy, industry leaders and crafted the mask with clinically proven wavelengths at the optimal absorption peak. Good quality LEDs have an output specification of +/- 5, meaning the output of an 830nm device will deliver wavelengths between 825/835nm.
Cheaper LEDs are often very broad in terms of their output, so they may have a specification of 100nm ie. between 600-700nm. This means the light emitted is not very pure and is a mixture of wavelengths. So, whilst you may achieve some light absorption into the skin, you won’t achieve optimal absorption.
Yes, we designed the device to our specification. We then identified and partnered with a team of Scientists and Engineers, who are pioneers in LED light therapy, to manufacture the device on our behalf.
Trialling multiple prototypes, testing and modifying elements to make sure every detail matched our discerning vision, the OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW Mask was born.
LED and microneedling is at our heart, it’s what we know inside out. We are a constant source of support, information and guidance. Our team of LED experts offer on-going skin support and education through emails, social media, and blogs. At OLIVIEREWILSON our aim is to create a community of skin obsessed like minded people, offering easy guidance to ensure everyone gets the best out of their purchase.
OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW MASK BENEFITS
When our skin cells absorb optimised red and near infrared light, it re-charges the cells ‘energy’ battery. This stimulates collagen, elastin and growth factors. Red and near infrared light therapy also increases micro-circulation which improves cellular balance. Balanced skin cells translates to healthier, glowing skin that looks & feels smoother and softer
Light therapy is good for all skin types, literally everyone.
No. LED light therapy is completely non-invasive and does not hurt.
Yes LED Light Therapy is good for redness and inflammation, especially when used in combination with our Cleanse & Treat Tonic.
We recommend completing a patch test prior to use, as requested in the user guide. Then start with 3x weekly treatments, until the skin becomes calmer and stronger. At that point you can increase to daily use.
Short term After 10 minutes under the mask your skin will feel plumped, hydrated and instantly refreshed. Regular treatments are clinically proven to soften lines and wrinkles.
Long term Consistency is key with LED and the more you do, the more you gain. One session will boost cellular activity, but multiple sessions will offer visible results.
Our minimum recommended treatment programme is 10 mins, 3-5 days a week for 4-6 weeks, followed by regular maintenance treatments, throughout the week, according to your schedule.
Our mask is designed to optimise the health of the skin, by reducing inflammation and speeding up healing time, thereby reducing the potential of pigmentation and scarring.
We have created an anti-bacterial and anti-microbial tonic - OLIVIEREWILSON Cleanse + Treat Tonic - to work in combination with the healing, anti-inflammatory properties of the Red 633nm and Near-Infrared 830nm wavelengths, to target blemishes.
We didn’t include Blue light in this mask and depending on your concerns, you may not need it within your skincare routine. If your focus is healthy skin and supporting the structre of your skin, Red 630nm & Near-Infrared 830nm are the clinically proven wavelengths to use.
Blue 415nm is anti-bacterial, and its purpose is to destroy acne/ blemish causing bacteria. But it does not contribute to rejuvenation or regeneration. If blemishes are not present, it will not have an effect on the skin.
Red 633nm and Near-Infrared 830nm wavelengths do not stimulate melanin production in the skin. They are at the opposite end of the spectrum to UV light so there is no risk of tanning or damaging the skin.
However, and this is the same for a lot of treatments that stimulate cellular activity, during the treatment period it is not unusual for pigmentation to appear darker before improvement occurs.
Cellular turnover is increased and the damaged cells are brought to the surface quicker, before naturally shedding off.
It is also important to remember that melanin can present itself differently within your skin throughout your monthly cycle.
At times you’ll think your skin looks clearer and then at other times you’ll notice patches that you’d previously not.
When treating and assessing pigmentation, it’s important to do it over a 3 month period (and not daily or weekly), taking before and after photographs of your areas of concern monthly, to monitor progress. This will give you a truer picture of the overall treatment results.
Vitamin C can be used under the light (as can Hyaluronic Acid, Vit B, E, Peptides etc) but retinol should be applied post.
Skincare that is applied post LED, will work even harder, enhancing results of the product.
The OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW Mask has not been tested on pregnant women therefore the risk is unknown.
HOW TO USE THE OLIVIEREWILSON GLOW MASK
The mask is hands free and completely portable, meaning you can wear it without being bound to a power outlet.
Before use, charge the controller, using the supplied cable and plug.
Once fully charged (all 3 lights will be illuminated), detach the controller from the charging cable and plug.
NB. The mask will NOT work if plugged into a wall socket.
The OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW Mask comes with two adjustable velcro straps that allow you to comfortably fit the mask around your head.
Thread the straps through the inlet holes on either side of the mask as shown in the illustration. Loop the straps around your head and secure firmly.
Adjust if necessary.
Gentle exfoliation pre-treatment enables better penetration of light. This can be anything from a manual exfoliant, gentle AHA cleanser, textured cloth, through to microneedling or an overnight resurfacing treatment.
Any skincare applied post treatment will work even harder on your skin, so you’ll gain more from your product.
Serum or a thin layer of moisturiser can be applied under the GLOW Mask. If the product is too thick, it will absorb an element of the light. Ingredients such as Vit B, C, E, Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides all work well.
Yes. Our Cleanse + Treat Tonic achieves high levels of cleansing to optimise skin health, balance oil, calm redness and sensitivity, and support rapid recovery of blemishes and inflammation.
Spritz and leave to dry - exposure time of 15 seconds is required to achieve anti-microbial and anti-bacterial protection.
Yes you can wear one under your LED GLOW Mask. We love the hydrating abilities of sheet masks. Try to also get some light only time too, so you could wear a sheet mask once a week and light only for your other weekly treatments.
Our recommended treatment programme is 10 minutes, 3-5 days a week.
OLIVIEREWILSON LED MASK CARE
The mask may be cleaned front and back with a water-based wipe or damp lint-free cloth. Stubborn stains can be removed by wiping gently with a 70% alcohol wipe. You can also spritz it with our Cleanse + Treat Tonic.
The OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW Mask is flexible and durable, however must be treated with care and stored flat in its protective bag for longevity.

OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW MASK Approvals
The OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW Mask has been tested to the highest internationally recognised eye safety standards and has been deemed safe to use on uncovered eyes. However, if you have eye sensitivity to light glare, we provide LED eye shields.
Yes we have received FDA clearance for our mask.
Yes the mask has both CE and UKCA certificates.
Yes. You can microneedle your face and apply the LED GLOW Mask straight afterwards or even use the LED mask first and then microneedle, depending on whether you want to prepare the skin prior to needling, or calm it afterwards. The Cleanse + Treat Tonic is also a fantastic product to use alongside microneedling, as it will protect the open skin and support healing and cell regeneration.
The OLIVIEREWILSON LED GLOW Mask is brilliant for improving overall skin health, so you will see a visible improvement to the complexion, for a multitude of reasons - improved hydration, circulation, cellular activity, texture, pigmentation etc.
It doesn’t target broken capillaries - you would need a laser to break them down. However, it replenishes, renews and hydrates capillary walls, so can help shrink broken ones and improve the overall appearance.
