Honestly. I promise I will do them tonight. I've already taken the pictures.
Look for them at 7:00 CA time. That is the time I will be on the computer tonight to upload them.

Holidays are busy,my daugthers birthday yesterday & working 45 hours per week, plus the 2 hour commute per day, takes alot of time. SORRRRRRRRY MY APOLOGIES Smile Smile Smile

I have not forgotten Dahlia and others ! ! !

Tamera,

Looking forward to seeing the pics. Just to clarify. You are going to post "before" pictures as well, aren't you? Your last couple of posts stated you would be posting "after' pics and I want to be sure you did mean both.

Yes Janna. About 1 month ago before starting the light stim I did take pictures. I will post them, but little embarrassing, my skin was really more red then.

I think the after pictures will look better then the befores. ha ha.

I have the before Photos on the CD, and the after photos are still on Camera taken couple days ago. My best intentions are to upload them tonight. I have some other things to do on the computer tonight. Don't plan to go out tonight, we are expecting a big storm tonight here in Northern California. 50 mile winds with 2" of rain. I should be uploading photos tonight (Providing I have electricity) ha ha.

Tamera

Ok. I'm emarrassed by the before photos, so don't laugh. My face was really red, photos taken with no makeup.I have a tendacy towards rosacia and my camera takes REALLY close up good photos and it was big photo too.

I have used the lightstim for approx from October 22 - Dec 6th. And the redness has ALMOST gone. There are a few places I am spot treating on my chin, and may do a TCA peel on the chin later. After holidays.This is me today on the right lower bottom in the blue shirt Dec 8th. I don't have makeup on, but I do have lipstick on.

But I promised the pictures, so here they are.

Wow, Tamera!! What an incredible difference! Your skin really didn't look bad to me before, but I can't believe how even and perfect it is in the after.

Tamera, thank you so much for the pictures.

Your skin looks wonderful (and very young).


I got the Lightstim, did it a few times, but so far do not see major results.

Oh well, I will try to be patient.

Sigma and Tosca.
What I found was, when I was doing it everyday at the beginning, my face got really tight feeling and soft, because I was leaving it on a long time. Then the tightness kind of started bothering me, so I went to maint mode 2-3 weeks. I think now, I need to do 3-4 times and find a happy medium.

It has helped the redness alot. Oh, forgot to add, my pores are much smaller too.
But, patience is the key, and I still HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO ! ! !

I'm pretty sure it has increased the collegen or elasticity, because my face seems more taunt or tighter in my thoughts.
And my face is much softer.

Keep it up, don't give up.

TOSCA
Thank you, you are just being kind. My face was redder than Santa's hat. ha ha.
But, I can say, it has toned down drastically.

Now to lose weight, tighten up some more. SO MUCH WORK, SO LITTLE BEAUTY TIME. ha ha.

Tamera,

You look good! Your skin is so even and smooth. I am going to have to be more diligent with my Light Stim. I am just not consistent.

Hi all - I've been offline for a while after moving house.
Tamera - your skin looks lovely! So white and clear Smile
Dahli - the unit I finally received was I think their third attempt!
I have been using it every night for the past 7 nights. Slight, promising changes - my skin feels a bit softer and looks more even toned. I make it my night time ritual before bed as once the unit warms up it is really relaxing and I feel quite sleepy afterwards. I'll continue to monitor and report my progress.

I use it after washing my face (using the Lightstim pore clearing cleanser) and moisturising it (using the lightstim retinol cream). I use lightstim for 40-90 seconds on each part of my face(about 1/2 an hour total)and then for a couple of minutes on one spot on my decolletage and then on the top of each hand. Sometimes I go back and repeat trouble spots like my frown lines.

Thanks for that info, Majica.

Do you think after a while the time commitment tapers off?

Catski - I am usually lazy when it comes to committing to a beauty routine but so far I don't mind this at all. I actually look forward to it as my wind-down time before bed. I actually drift off to sleep while I'm using it! Once I achieve the desired results (hopefully) I guess I will just use it a couple of times a week as maintenance. The manual states that you can either use it every day for shorter time on each spot or twice a week but for longer periods on each spot. Usage is quite flexible so you could fit it in to your lifestyle.

Tamara your skin looks great! What a positive return for your investment of money, time and effort. Your eyes also look more wide opened, if you know what I mean.

Yes, I'm getting the idea that it's very relaxing,which is nice. I know it's pointless trying to anticipate what routine I will find in using it - I guess I have a mild concern that I wont find time to do it, and it will be a 5 minute wonder for me... but that's just me, and nothing to do with the product.

If anyones on the fence its on sale at the LightStim website for $169.00 until 12:00 Midnight 26 December 2006.

I am thinking about buying one, but I am only 28, so no wrinkles yet. I do however have spider veins and TMJ-type pain and was wondering if it would help with this.

TMJ pain is a matter of jaw placement and alignment. That can be done through your dentist and a splint or braces depending on the severity. But it should be done professionally. Now holding the light on the outside of your jaw might reduce the resulting pain but cannot fix the problem.

AnnieR, I realize that light is not going to fix TMJ. I do not have jaw misalignment, but I have occational jaw pain from night grinding, even with my guard. Someone had mentioned that another light device had helped reduce their knee pains, and I wondered if it would work as well on facial joints.

I got my LightStim for christmas. Very Happy

Congrats Catski! Please post your results after you've been using it for awhile.

Glad you're enjoying your Chrissy present Catski Very Happy
Results Update: I've been using my Lightstim for about 4 weeks. I am noticing subtle changes in a more even skin tone and slight softening of fine lines around the eye area and a stubborn crease between my eyes. I usually get hormonal acne breakouts around the chin area every couple of weeks but I have not had a breakout since I started using my Lightstim. The unit seems to be keeping the acne under control - note, I am also using the cleanser and toner that came with the pack. I have been using my Lightstim every day except for two days I missed. I don't see much of a decrease, if any, in the pigmenation areas but it is summer over here which makes it more challenging. I do wear sunscreen every day but I still get freckles on my pale skin Mad A beautician once advised me to wear a sunscreen that contains zinc OR titanium as these ingredients provide the "block" against visible sun damage.
