Red and infrared lights have been used by dermatologists and other skin care professionals for many years to treat a variety of different skin conditions. The particular wavelengths of light that red and infrared light represent are known to penetrate deep beneath the surface of the skin to address the signs of aging that many topical ointments cannot. Each component of light that is delivered by the illuMask is designed to address a specific sign of aging that many people begin to experience as they get older.

The red light delivered by the mask is designed to even the appearance of the user’s skin tone, while reducing the toughness of the skin. It can also help reduce the appearance of dark spots on the surface of the skin. Therapeutic red light has also been shown to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and increase skin collagen levels. This can help the skin appear more vibrant, youthful, and also improve the skin’s overall complexion and elasticity.

The infrared light delivered by the illuMask is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, one of the most noticeable signs of aging that people complain of. By combining red and infrared light together into a single device, the illuMask Anti-Aging Phototherapy Device allows consumers to get the most out of a single treatment session.

The goal of the illuMask is to combine the most effective treatment possible, at a price that the largest number of consumers could afford. At a cost of under $30.00 ($29.97), the illuMask can be used for less than one dollar per day. This is a much more affordable option than the services that are provided by many dermatologists specializing in anti-aging treatments. If you are trying to find out where to buy illuMask, it can be purchased at major in-store and online retailers.

    Purchased one of these mask today. Will report back, but wondering why this unit has only a limited number of uses.....I have a problem trusting in anything that may require you to purchase the product again to see results. Reminds me of those infomercials for anti aging products where you have to join a membership to purchase the product, and they send you the products every three months automatically.....Do you women ever wonder why these infomercial products are not out competing with the high end products in Major Department Stores? And if the product really worked, do you think any woman would have to be reminded or forget to order it?? Come on now women, we are more intelligent than that. But I will give new things a shot, and if it doesn't provide results as advertised, I will speak out.

    Carmen, illuMask's primary goal with their line of products is to make them as affordable as possible. The device has the capacity to provide 30 15 minute sessions. Beyond this, the device begins to lose its ability to provide effective results. If the mask were able to provide more than thirty high quality light treatments, then it would have to cost more, and would not be as affordable for as many consumers.

    Please report back to us with your results, we would love to hear them!

      So... you have to buy a mask every 30 days? What happens if you don't continue after 30 days? I imagine you loose whatever improvement was made? But, does your skin get worse than it was before you even tried the mask?

  • Barb (7 years ago) Reply

    I have had a lot of stress in 2013, and it shows in my face. I found this on a clearance end cap in Wal Mart. I thought it was on sale, but obviously from what I read here, it was regular price. I hope it helps, though. Because I don't like what I see when I look in the mirror. I will write a review if I see results.

  • Sarah (7 years ago) Reply

    I've used the mask for 2 weeks. It looks like the skin under my eyes has tightened. I really wanted the skin under my jaw to tighten. Still hopeful.

    I picked one these up this past Monday. I've used this mask (4) times for 15 minutes each time and I've already had noticeable results! After the age of 40, I started noticing fine lines under my eyes, the "spider web" of wrinkles on the tops of my cheeks and vertical lines around my mouth. After countless attempts to use high-end and drugstore products and hundreds of dollars spent, nothing has worked until now! This thing is truly ahh-mazing! After just (3) uses, I noticed the crisscross lines on my cheeks have dramatically softened and my overall skin texture is smoother. It is comfortable to wear and much more affordable than going to a Doctor's office to get the same results. I didn't think something that costs just $1 day would work but I was wrong. I'm going to keep using this product and will write more here after I have completed the 30 sessions it says to do on the box.

    I bought the mask and after 2 uses, the area around my eyes became very red and raw, painfully so, and my entire face peeled, even though I never had a any signs of a sunburn. Not sure what happened or why I reacted like this. Bummed because I still have 28 uses left and can't use it. I can't even put anything on my face except coconut oil without severe stinging and burning. It's almost healed up at least.

      Shelia were you using any eye products that contain retin-a or retinol. These products should not be used in combination with infrared light

    This mask is awe some ! I used it for first time and I literally felt this wonderful calming and energy from it and I fell asleep le sigh!y skin feels amazing and this is my first time. I think I'm a lifer ! My dark circles lightened up immediately, I usually avoid the sun and have fair dry skin, with red cheeks but after this treatment my skin was soft felt tighter and evened color I can't wait til thirty days

  • Kat (7 years ago) Reply

    I have used this now for the full 30 days! I am 41 and have always struggled with breakouts and the uneven skin color. I can say I have just purchased my second one today and will continue. My results are amazing. My skin has NEVER been clearer and smoother, even through that pesky monthly cycle that does my skin in. I have got a couple of blemishes while using the illumask but they do not last and do not get near as big and yucky as in the past. Can't say it is for everyone but it is certainly for me!

  • Robin (7 years ago) Reply

    Been using the mask for 16 days and it is fabulous! I am seeing great results and will buy again. Very relaxing too. I usually fall asleep while I use it.

    Do you use cream on your face with the mask? If you do, what kind would you use? I don't want to burn my skin.

  • Debbie (7 years ago) Reply

    would like to know if you r suppose to use a moisturizer while the mask is on an which one should u use? I am afraid my face will burn while useing the mask. can someone give mesome feedback please? Does it firm the face? And im concern if u stop useing the mask that u will loose all results plus ur skin will go a step further an get deeper wrinkles/ like when u stop useing a hair product/ ur hair falls out!

  • heather welberry (7 years ago) Reply

    I am interested in getting one of these...I'm 41 and starting to see dark spots and fine lines. Is this good for those who are just barely noticing these things or should I wait until they really bother me and just keep using my retinal night cream for now ??

  • cara (7 years ago) Reply

    I have been using both the anti-aging mask and the acne mask, both 15 min a day, for the past 2 weeks. No obvious improvement in signs of aging, and I'm 56 so there are plenty of signs! I have had cystic breakouts on chin for, well, forever, and am on retinoid cream for that. Too early to tell if the acne treatment mask is helping. As for using retinol products & any other anti-aging face products at same time as the masks, I have had no problems whatsoever. Will check back here when my 30-day treatments are completed to let you know if they worked.

  • Kathy (7 years ago) Reply

    I have used my mask 3 times.......after I showered today, I noticed my forehead and cheek bone area very a sunburn!! I feel that the mask is working, but now I'm afraid to use it anymore as I'm worried it is burning my skin!! Is this normal? Could I use it every other day, and if so, will I still get results?

  • Julie kate (7 years ago) Reply

      I love this mask!! I am 46 yrs old and have seen the benefits after the first 30 days. I will continue to use the masks - I believe it is a fair price for the results. I hope to see continual improvement.

    Can I put the acne illu mask on with a sun burn ?????

  • Patricia (6 years ago) Reply

    I am 62 and have always had good skin, but I noticed that when I reached my 60's my skin was going down hill real fast no matter what I used and I have spent as much as 169.00 for a moisturizer that only last 30 days. I saw the illumask for 30.00 and decided to give it a try, not really expecting any noticeable results. I have been using it for about 2 weeks and I am impressed with what I see. My skin tone is more even, brighter, tighter in certain areas, lessened dark circles under my eyes. The best part is what people are commenting on without any prompting on my part. Comments such as, "you look well rested" "your skin looks great" "Have you had work done" and even "I would never guess you were going on 63, early 50's at the most" anyway at 1.00 a day it's worth it, I will continue to use this product!!

    Hi I just purchased this, I am 29 years old I was wondering if it's safe for me to use this or not? All the reviews are form 40 and older ppl. So this got me curious, I just want to prevent wrinkles that I see where I smile
