How LightStim Can Help With Acne Scars

LightStim is an LED light therapy you can use to improve acne scars, reduce pain, and improve your skin’s appearance and texture. It also works to reduce fine lines by encouraging your skin to replenish itself from the inside.


Understanding Light Therapy

Light therapy is helpful for a variety of reasons, from managing pain to treating acne breakouts. There are many types of light therapy, like blue light and red light therapies.

Also known as phototherapy, using light therapy is safe and occasionally has mild side effects. You would need to see the dermatologist for light therapy to enjoy the cutting-edge LightStim treatment.

Scientifically proven to treat acne breakouts, phototherapy is effective at treating inflammation, too. LightStim therapy is also helpful in treating muscle pain, arthritis, in addition to relieving discomfort after other procedures.


How Light Therapy Helps Acne

Millions of people suffer from acne every year. Treatments are typically available either topically or orally, but results still are not what they want. Side effects are also undesirable in many cases, so light therapy has become a viable option in the fight against acne.

Light devices like LightStim can eliminate bacteria while soothing skin. Light therapy has been used for decades by dermatologists to treat acne because it works. Blue light therapy, the most common phototherapy, effectively kills bacteria that would otherwise collect and live on your face.

Red light therapy is the choice for those wanting to reduce acne scarring. It also reduces inflammation as it works to repair tissues below your skin’s surface. Chronic skin conditions like acne rosacea can benefit from red light therapy.


What to Expect With LightStim Light Therapy

LightStim has two options – one for wrinkles and one for pain and acne scarring. You can use LightStim therapy for treating wrinkles all over your face, with improvements in as little as eight weeks.

LightStim for pain is excellent for soothing aches, pains, and acne scarring. By increasing blood circulation, red light therapy promotes healing. As a bonus, you can use this device for sports injuries and other types of pain, too.


How to Use LightStim Light Therapy

Recommended use depends on your dermatologist and the results you want. You will need to protect your eyes adequately with blackout goggles when using a LightStim device, but that is normal for light therapy treatments. Light treatments can stimulate collagen production and can also treat hyperpigmentation when used correctly.

While using LightStim, you do need to remember that it will take time to get results. It is not a standalone routine. Instead, it should be used as part of your regular skin routine. For best results, avoid using anything that can dry out your skin. You should also not use Retin A or benzoyl peroxide until after engaging in LightStim therapy.
