Magic LED “Anti-Aging” Mask: Snake Oil Sold Seperately
December 22nd, 2011
Ladies, how’d you like it if there was a beauty treatment which promised to reduce wrinkles, redness, scars and acne, all without any fancy dermatologists involved. How would you feel if I told you you had to wear a mask that made you look like Jason from Friday the 13th in order to reap such rewards?
Well ask, and you shall receive, courtesy of the “Magic LED Beauty Mask.” This ridiculous looking contraption claims to work all sorts of wonders for your skin in 7 to 21 days just by pounding the crap out of it with bright red LEDs. Supposedly, it does this by encouraging collagen and elastin regeneration by “stimulating fibroblast activity.” It all sounds like it’s grounded vaguely in medical science, but I still have my doubts. Here’s a quick instruction diagram, in case you’re curious how it works:
Sold? I thought so. Now, I know there are legitimate dermatological procedures which use lasers to treat skin problems, but this just seems like some sort of “wonder cure” which is more likely to give you a headache than to actually do anything for your skin. I suppose if it doesn’t work, at least you’ll have a cool mask for Halloween next year.
If you’re really keen on trying this thing, you can order a caseload of them wholesale over at Made-in-China, or if you just want a single one, Focalprice is retailing them for $199 (USD). Or, you could just buy a couple of these and strap them to a hockey mask.
