I had been using the hydrogel masks along with the contour face mask for many months with great results. When these masks became available, I was on it! The gel masks are a bit delicate, slippery, tricky, until finding what works to apply them.
I found that if my skin is cleansed & dry, as in no surface moisture, it's easier to apply the mask so that it stays on without slipping down.
What has worked for me, is to open the packet the mask is in. The mask has a clear plastic cover on one side, a paper cover on the other. I remove the clear cover. Lying flat on my back on my bed, I apply the mask. I stay horizontal for a minute or so. Then, I apply the LED Contour, then the LED for DÉCOLLETÉ.
The masks stay put without sliding down or bunching up as the LED devices go through their 10-minute cycle. After removing the LED masks. hydrogel masks & both LED mitts, I get the last bit of solution out of the hydrogel masks, onto the backs of my hands.
Sometimes I leave them on to go through another 10-minute cycle. It has given great results, so, I hope it's okay.
The solution from the masks absorbs quickly, I give it a couple minutes to completely absorb before going to bed. I leave it on with no other product when I go to bed to get my 7 hours!
The next day, I notice that my skin looks slightly plumped, has a very slight pink glow, it feels really good! I just rinse my face, neck hands, etc before morning skin care, applying sunscreen before I start my day.
I have noticed the bands on my neck fading. I had very slight fine on my face, before I started using the Omnilux LED devices & hydrogel masks.. Those are completely gone.
Everything from this company has been fantastically effective! Pricey, yes. Worth the $$$$? Absolutely!
