We all know that plants convert sunlight into food through a process called photosynthesis, but what many people don't know is that humans are capable of something quite similar. Unfortunately, we can't make our own food simply by soaking up some rays, but we can use light to renew our skin. It sounds too good to be true, but the science behind the LightStim device is actually very simple.
Red light therapy for wrinkles is a recognised beauty treatment that is practiced in spas to achieve improved skin tone, reduce pain, or heal acne. The LightStim for Wrinkles device uses a red light – which is just like sunlight, but without the harmful UV rays – and has been proven to improve skin tone in just 8 weeks.
How does red light therapy for wrinkles work?
The LightStim device uses LED lights to deliver light energy to help energise the cells and boost collagen production. The light mimics sunlight, without the harmful UV ways, and encourages the body to build new proteins and generate new cells. The LightStim head is made up of 72 LEDs which emit amber, light red, dark red and infrared light, the combination of these wavelengths helps to increase circulation, boost collagen and elastin production and reduces inflammation.
By penetrating the dermis layer of the skin, the LightStim is able to boost collagen and elastin production which results in a firmer skin, and fewer visible wrinkles and fine lines. In a clinical study, 100% of users reported an improvement in their skin tone after eight weeks of use – we like those kinds of statistics!
How to use the LightStim
The LightStim provides red light therapy for wrinkles in a completely pain-free and incredibly simple to use device. Simply turn on the device and hold it against the chosen treatment area for three minutes. The LightStim device also comes with a collagen peptide serum which facilitates the process. The serum helps by targetting wrinkles and helping to firm, hydrate and oxygenate the skin.
There is also a LightStim app available to help you plan and track your treatment programme and get the most from your device.
