Dr. Dennis Gross Mask vs. CurrentBody LED Mask

If you’re new here, I love LED red light therapy. There’s solid data behind it, I’ve seen results and I think it’s worth adding to your routine with one of the LED masks on the market.

When it comes to red light masks, most are one of 2 styles: hardshell or flexible silicone. The most popular hardshell red light mask is without a doubt, the Dr. Dennis Gross FaceWare. I recently was sent one of the flexible styles, the CurrentBody LED mask.

ABOUT currentbody led mask

The CurrentBody mask is made of flexible silicone containing 49 red LED lights. The mask comes with a USB charging cord, storage bag and a cord with a remote. Pressing the button on the remote starts the automated 10 minute timer.

I wonder if the flexible silicone LED masks are private labeled as there is little to no difference between masks from Omnilux, CurrentBody and HigherDose.

CurrentBody LED Mask, provided for review purposes

currentbody Pros

  • Lays completely flat so it’s easy to store and travel with.
  • I love the 10 minute time interval. I always do my Dr. Dennis Gross mask at least 3 rounds because it only has a 3 minute timer.
  • Holds a charge for a good amount of time
  • Covers a thorough surface area

currentbody Cons

  • Must use the strap to wear it and it’s not the most comfortable or easy to get on.
  • Has a slight rubbery scent
  • Remote is connected via cord, so not fully cord free

comparing the masks

If you read my previous review on the Dr. Dennis Gross mask, you know I’m really happy with it. I use it frequently, it couldn’t be easier and I’ve seen results. When CurrentBody reached out, I saw this as an opportunity to compare 2 different mask styles, hopefully helping you choose which is right for you.

It would appear that the masks have similar coverage areas. However, the Dr. Dennis Gross mask is open on the sides of the eyes and the CurrentBody one is not.

The CurrentBody mask has a cord with the on/off handheld switch. This doesn’t need plugged into the wall once fully charged though. The Dr. Dennis Gross mask is turned on with a button on the forehead part of the mask.

how to choose

Whichever mask you choose, you’re making a good choice. Both devices are well made and the technology is solid. However, there are some convenience factors to consider that may help you to decide, broken down below.

Go with Dr. Dennis Gross if:

  • You plan to primarily use your mask while laying down as it stays in place without straps.
  • You need the quickest, easiest option. 3 minutes, no straps needed.
  • You want access to anti-aging red light and anti-acne blue light as well.
  • You want a longer warranty
  • For $55 extra, the Dr. Dennis Gross mask is versatile, comfortable to wear and easy to use. I really wish it had a longer time interval.

Go with CurrentBody if:

  • You plan to use your mask while traveling as this one packs far better.
  • You do not break out and have no use for the blue light therapy.
  • You want to use it with biocellulose sheet masks as this one is approved to do so.
  • You want to save $55. Save more with code IVY for 10% off.
  • Your face is atypically shaped as the flexible mask can better contour to your bone structure.
  • You like to take a little nap or meditate while using your mask due to the 10 minute auto timer.

    This is very helpful! Do you think there is a disadvantage that the DDG mask is open along the side by the eyes? Does the Currentbody target that area better? Thanks!

      I took photos to see the coverage area and didn’t see a vast difference from my perspective. I’m glad this post was helpful and thank you for reading!

    Oh honey, let me tell you about my new best friend, the LED face mask. It’s like having a personal disco party for my skin! I put on this futuristic-looking mask and suddenly I feel like a superhero, ready to battle any blemish or wrinkle that comes my way. And let me tell you, the results are glowing. My face is so radiant, I’m pretty sure I could guide airplanes in for landing. Plus, I get to pretend I’m a member of Daft Punk while I’m wearing it.
