Doing some research on the Artemis? After spending over 2 years with the Artemis a full review is in order. It's been on the market longer than most but yet it's still relatively on the down low in english speaking markets.
If you're already familiar with what Light therapy is you can skip over this section. If you're unfamiliar with it you can continue to read on. In short, light therapy has numerous applications ranging from treating seasonal disorders, improving athetlic recovery time, body pain, aiding sleep, hair regrowth, and of course skincare. You may also hear the term Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation (PBM) which is generally snynonymous.
Light therapy is backed by numerous studies over the past few decades and is showing more promise each year. What's great about it is that it's non invasive and contains no ingredients. It has previously been mainly reserved for clinics, spas, and salons in the hands of professionals. However, in more recent times there has been an emergence of at home devices for consumers to use such as the one sold by Artemis for both professional and at home use. This one is extremely powerful.
Before you move on....
We want you to know you should still seek advice from your own dermatologist or aesthetician before making a decision to see if light therapy is for you. This especially applies if you take any sort of medication that causes sensitivity to light as well as those that are allergic to light (yes it’s a thing!). Nothing written here shall be taken as medical advice despite professional opinions. That being said, let’s get into the Artemis to see if it holds the crown as the most powerful LED mask on the market in 2022.
THIS MASK HAS 1080 LEDS
Already putting an astronomical 888 (crazy how it landed on that number) LED difference vs the closest one we have also reviewed at 192. Making it the most powerful on the market by that stat alone. To make this even more staggering the most well known masks have 66 or up to 100.

Protect The Neck
Let's be clear. Your neck is part of your most important asset, your face. It would be a shame to have beautiful glowing face and not having your neck match that. This mask comes with a modular neck piece that attaches magnetically and does not need to be charged separately. Once you attach it, the mask will power on the neck portion.

Powered By The Beauty Capital Of The World
K-Beauty is predicted to grow to a staggering 13.9 billion industry by 2027 and for a good reason, it works. They are on the forefront of beauty tech and there's a reason why so many users have a glass skin appearance. Light therapy is one of them + your typical 10 step routine.
6 WAVELENGTHS + NIR
You got your essential Red for anti-aging and Blue for anti-acne. Then tack on Green for anti-inflammation and dark spots, violet for red and blue combined, yellow for reducing redness, and sky blue for reducing swollen capillaries.
Top top that off you can customize individual parts of your face based of needs. For example you can do blue for troubled acne prone areas and red for anti aging on your forehead.
But if you're feeling a quick treatment you can also skip the app and use the artemis by itself for a quick treatment of any single wavelength.

We never thought we'd see the day that we could get custom treatments based off our local weather. But it is true, the weather does play a role in determining our skincare.
With the app you can let it choose the best treatment for you on any given day. This especially is great for those that don't have a specific goal in mind but want to have the best skin complexion year round.
No Remotes Or Wires
Maybe you can relate but the worst thing ever is losing a remote. With this mask we fortunately didn't have to worry about any clunky remotes or controllers. It's all done with a tap of the button on the mask or by using the intuitive app they created.
A Powerful Habit To Make In 2022
Consistency is key when using light therapy. Just like your ingredient based products they need to be used regularly to make a difference. However, we have noticed faster client results with this mask than others likely due to it's sheer power and number of LEDS + NIR. It's just one of those gifts that keeps on giving and one you'll love to make a habit out of as an addition to your existing routine.
The Artemis unquestionably has the most powerful beauty tech mask on the market in 2022 and will probably be for years to come. However, the price is certainly steep for some and that's really it's only drawback for your average at home consumer. But we always like to think of it as if we spend more on phones and cars over the years we should definitely be caring about our skin just as much if not more.
Of course this isn't a replacement for your whole skincare routine. It may be able to replace some products since ingredient based anti-acne products cause aging and anti-aging products cause acne... which can be a shocker to some. But that is what makes light therapy for skincare so great because it's non invasive and contains no counteracting ingredients. However, it's not going to moisturize or exfoliate your skin and it's certainly not going to protect you from the sun. So you still gotta SPF up!
