LightStim Review: Can Infrared Really Stimulate Collagen Production?

Written by 4 comments

LightstimTo say that things are changing in the world of anti aging would be a huge understatement.

In this LightStim review you’re about to see just how far we’ve come in terms of the technology we’re now using to stop the signs of aging.

Using light-based treatment has been around now for about 5 years or so, but only recently have we started to see at home products come onto the market.

I’m about to show you guys exactly how this product works, plus give you all the pro’s and con’s as well so that you can make an informed decision as to whether or not this product is worth purchasing.

My LightStim Review

I first came across this product through a dermatologist friend of mine Nancy, who I’ve turned too on a number of occasions when it comes to figuring out certain ways of bettering my skin.

The same technology used in LightStim was first created by Dr Peter Helton, who sits on the board of certified dermatologist in the United States. His customers pay thousands of dollars to be treated by the exact same technology.

Some people are nuts!

What is the technology you ask? It’s pretty simple really and no it’s not a form of laser treatment. Instead the LightStim emits a certain wavelength of infrared light that helps to stimulate the production of new collagen.

As we’ve mentioned on a number of occasions, collagen combined with elastin help keep your skin feeling firmer and looking younger.

As we age, our skin becomes worse at retaining the moisture necessary to house collagen cells. LightStim works by helping skin to restore normal levels of moisture so that more collagen can be stored.

Why It’s HOT!

Before and after LightstimThe main reason why this product is becoming more and more popular is because instead of just masking the problems associated with aging, it works to try and resolve them.

Although some creams like LifeCell have the ability to instantly remove the appearance of aging, it will only offer a small amount of help when it comes to fixing the problems in the long term.

Combining your regular skin care routine with 20-30 minutes of using the LightStim, may offer some more long term, sustainable results as far as reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other aging factors.

It’s also extremely simple to use. You just turn it on, apply it to the parts of your face that are most effected for about 20-30 minutes at a time while watching TV and after about a month of daily use, you should start to see some good results.

Why It’s NOT!

The only real issue that some women may have with using the LightStim is that it takes a while before results can be seen. I’m not going to say that you can throw away all your other products and just use this device, but instead try to use them in combination.

As I mentioned for the first month you probably won’t see much of a difference so continue your regular skin care regime. It’s also important to constantly supply your skin with a moisturizer every day so that the LightStim can help regenerate lost collagen. Having that pool of moisture below your top layer of skin is essential for housing new collagen cells.

Finally the price is a little high for some at $249, but they do allow you to try the device for 30 days before you have to make the final payments. The trial costs $14.99 and you can cancel at any time during the 30 day period.

Skin Score!

Overall there are a lot of women starting to turn to this form of skin care, with some paying alarming amounts of money to have the treatment done at certain spa’s and skin care center’s.

If you stick to a regular 30 minute routine using this device, it’s likely you’ll more effectively stem the signs of aging long into your later years. Out of all the at home light technologies available, this is by far my favorite and definitely worth a try.

Where To Buy LightStim

It’s not the cheapest device on the market, but if you really can’t spend another day without one, you best be buying from Amazon.com who have the best price on LightStim.

  • Your link for this no longer works. Would you say it compares to the Red MD product in this link? http://www.trophyskin.com/products.php

    Also, what is your take on this site, both their Red MD and Blue MD for acne? I already intend to purchase their Microderm MD (based on your review, as well as negative ones for related products).

  • Hey Katie, I managed to find all 3 LightStim devices on Amazon.com for less than what the official site is selling them for. (links shown above)

    I’m so glad you mentioned the RedMD because I’m having them send a device to Sabrina to review and it should arrive any day now! We’ll keep everyone posted on our newsletter once the review goes up.

  • I am 64 and have been using the Light Stim for One month. Don’t know about improving the wrinkles yet. But my skin is smoother and brighter. Time will tell on the full results. Hoping for a miracle. LOL

  • Hey Dotty! I’m so happy to hear it’s working to smooth and brighten your skin :)

    If you are looking for a solid anti-aging/anti-wrinkle cream you should check out Lifecell –> http://besskincare.com/lifecell

    I really dug the cream and it faded my wrinkles!

    Just a thought :)
