Good news: You can do this clinic-level treatment from home
Your skin feels lax, dull and congested. It’s in desperate need of a hardcore, medical-grade facial. The sort that only a skincare professional and high-quality technology can provide. Though that would require venturing out of the house, which obviously isn’t an option. Or would it?
LED light therapy is one of the most potent forces in skincare. Research has proven that LED treatments can effectively treat a multitude of skin concerns from signs of ageing to minimising redness and reducing acne, the benefits of LED light therapy are manifold. Previously confined to the four walls of an Aesthetician’s treatment room, light therapy has slowly started to make its way into the mainstream with more and more devices becoming available for us to buy and use at home.
“At-home LED devices are an excellent way to bring in a normally in-clinic treatment to the comfort of your home. So, it’s an ideal way of maintaining healthy skin during this time.” Says Dr Sophie Shotter, Medical director and founder of Illuminate Skin Clinic. “These at-home devices are not usually as strong as the LED used in clinic, and that’s why I’m excited to introduce the FDA-approved LightStim to my patients.”
LED light therapy has been around for over 30 years and was initially developed for astronauts to help with tissue healing and repair. According to Dr Sophie, the benefits of this treatment are endless. “They include treating acne, regulating oil production, stimulating collagen and elastin and minimising redness and wrinkles.” She explains.
So how does LED light therapy work?
The LightStim LED, in particular, delivers light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free beneficial light rays that can help reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, destroy acne-causing bacteria, and assist the body in its natural pain-relieving process. Each LightStim product uses different LED wavelengths (colours) of light to provide unique therapeutic benefits dependant on your concern. LED is non-invasive, painless, requires no recovery time, and is suitable for all skin types.
“The best thing about the LightStim is that it is simple to use, and you will only need approximately 20 minutes of dedicated time.” Says Dr Sophie. “But make it an experience. You can turn the treatment into a relaxing facial even if you are only in your bathroom. Now is the time to up our self-care game and give ourselves some extra love and attention. Light a candle and treat your skin to a double cleanse before letting the LightStim work its magic.”
The LightStim LED device is a high-quality, easy to use, FDA approved at-home device that combines therapeutic light energy with patented technology to address your skin within.
