LightStim for Wrinkles Q&A
LightStim for Wrinkles Q&A
The totally non-invasive LightStim for Wrinkles stimulates the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin. This is the first light-based device to be cleared by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles on the entire face, it incurs no downtime and can transform your skin’s appearance, nourishing it and helping to recapture your radiant glow.
Q: How does it work?
Your skin has the ability to absorb light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate cellular regeneration. The light emitted from LightStim for Wrinkles is beneficial for your skin and, unlike the sun; it emits no harmful UV rays.
Q: Is LightStim for Wrinkles FDA cleared?
LightStim for Wrinkles is the first light-based device to receive FDA clearance for the treatment of wrinkles on your entire face, as well as the only device backed by clinical studies. In those studies, the Light was used three minutes per area and 100% of the participants were shown to have a significant improvement in their fine lines and wrinkles.
Q: What makes LightStim for Wrinkles so unique and effective?
LightStim MultiWave® technology combines four different wavelengths, or colors of light: amber, two wavelengths of red and infrared. Working together, they stimulate your body’s own natural ability to increase collagen and elastin production. Amber is the primary collagen builder, and the red and infrared wavelengths aid in healing.
Q: How long does it take to work?
After six to eight weeks of use, you will start to see the first signs of improvement and it just continues from there. Stimulating your body’s production of collagen and elastin takes time, and that time will vary by person. Many clients see results, including improved skin tone and a newfound glow, in just a few weeks!
Q: How do I use LightStim for Wrinkles?
Place the Light gently touching your skin and hold in place. After the 3-minute Treatment Timer beeps, move the Light to a new area and repeat until you have treated all desired areas.
Q: Why do some of the LEDs appear not to be lit?
Some LEDs deliver infrared light, which is not visible to the human eye.
Q: Can I use LightStim for Wrinkles on other areas of the body?
LightStim for Wrinkles is FDA cleared to address wrinkles on the face. Though clinical trials were specific to the face, LED light therapy has been successfully used for decades to address many areas of the body. Many people have successfully used lights on the neck, décolletage and hands.
Q: Are there any contraindications?
Absolutely no contraindications have been found with respect to LED Light Therapy.
Q: Can I use LightStim for Wrinkles with other skincare products?
Apply thin, lightweight, non-exfoliating serums or clear masques with ingredients like peptides and/or hyaluronic acid first. Then use your Light, followed by a moisturizer or heavier cream. LightStim also works without a serum, but using a serum may enhance product penetration and effectiveness.
Q: Do I need to use the goggles?
99% of people are not photosensitive. The goggles are included for those rare individuals who are. If the brightness bothers you, we suggest you close your eyes.
