I've been doing my facial exercises lately and using the Lightstim afterwards. It really makes my face feel good afterwards. I think I'm getting results, but it's difficult to say at this point.

Katina, I don't understand it fully either. However my brain could not process $400. It was able to process $169 much faster, so that's why I am using the LightStim even as I am on this board. Smile I have been putting it on my tummy after I washed it, and applied the skiobio triple P&R cream, and super CP serum on it and rubbed them both in like a mad woman. As you can see I really really want to conquer my stretch marks. Although they're not that bad looking, they're still there to stare me down all the time. (I know they're not that bad looking because a friend of mine showed me hers, and I realized I had it very light compared to hers.) The LightStim can get pretty hot though. Do you think that's ok to put it on your skin? So far, I have not got any burn.


Cherisse, I put it on my skin all the time. I enjoy the heat - it feels very relaxing.

I've got two prominent veins on my right cheek. I'm using them to see if there's any improvement. It's only been three days so I'll be patient. So far I use the Lightstim and either have it very lightly on my skin or just above, either way I'm hardly touching my skin, I figure that way...less cleaning Razz

Sorry for not being around. Our lives were turned upside down from around Dec 27.

We taken our adopted newborn baby boy home from the hospital. Yeah, up every 2 hours for feedings, diaper changes, etc. It was wonderful. ha ha. for real.

Had him almost 3 weeks and the birthmother changed her mind and wanted him back. Birthmothers have more rights than Adoptive parents.

So.... to say the least we have been totally crushed with pain and hurt. I miss him so badly. He is our baby boy. I was the only mother he knew.

However, to say the least, I have not had any time to do the lightstim. But I will be doing it tonight Wed. (I think it's wed ?)

I can say !, using the lightstim made my face more moisturized. Not using it for 2 weeks, I have dry patches that feel like sandpaper in different places. I am curious once I use it tonight again, how my skin will feel.

I will post tomorrow on how it feels again.

I CAN SAY, my more even toned skin has stayed the same. My skin still feels tight.

But, I've also been through the wringer so to speak. My face shows I'm tired from lack of sleep and stress. So I am anxious to see what the Lightstim can do now ? ? ?

Tamera, I'm so sorry that happened!!! I can't believe that the mother could give the child up for adoption and then just change her mind and take him back! That's just awful. My thoughts are with you and your family. *Hugs*

Tamera - So sorry about your son. You and your husband sound like a loving couple that would provide a wonderful home for a child. Hope time eases your sadness and that your son has a good home with his birth mother.

I had not thought about veins, until I read your post. Then I checked. I have prominent veins that stand up on the surface of my hands and also one that looks like a streak of dirt near my ear and jawbone. The dirty looking vein is still the same. However, the veins in the backs of my hands have gone down dramatically after a week or ten days of putting the light on them. I'm amazed. I'm using the light there to make the age spots fade, and I never even noticed the veins.

Oh, Tamera, that's absolutely heartbreaking. I don't know what to say, it's such an unimaginably awful thing to have happened. I feel so very bad for you and your husband.

Tamera;

One thing I have learned is that life and the World are not fair. Another thing I have learned is that no matter how bad or strange
or unbelievable- it can and will happen. I am sorry for your loss.... we have never spoken, but I have read your posts for awhile. It is
very unfortunate that this happened- I wish for you that it did not. This is like you said- a good time to test your lightstim! Confused Take care and may God be with you.

I have used my lightstim again. I can say it is very relaxing to lay in bed and use it. I actually have a problem with falling asleep. ha ha.

I do want to thank all of you for your kind wishes and prayers. You are great.

As I said, I used the Lightstim Wednesday night. On thursday, my face looked like it had been plumped up. I didn't see so many stress lines. Also, in addition, the dry patches were not as rough. So, I do think that the Lightstim helps the moisture in the face which would explain that the LED lights are supposd to increase collegen, which might help with the softness.

But after I got up on Thursday morning, I looked at my face, and it was definitly plumper and I didn't look so tired/stressed.

So I can add that to the Lightstim.

Will continue to use, because I really feel like it makes a difference.

Tammy.

I've been trying to catch up. I sure can tell that this Lightstim does make a difference in the way my face presents itself.

When I was not able to use it under the circumstances, my face had dry patches, my face did not feel good period !

Now that I have used it several days in a row, it is beginning to fell plumped up again, and the moisture is back. I have an overall better look.

Just thought I would add that.

Tammy

Hi Tamera.

Good to know. Hope you're doing okay and taking care of yourself and getting taken care of!

I l--u-u-urve my LightStim. Really really pleased with it.

Have you told your girlfriends about it, everyone?

I feel a bit shy about having such a 'strange' and costly tool!

I've used the Lightstim for a week and one thing I've noticed is that my skin is slowly clearing up. It's only been a week so I'm being patient.

Girls, what's the definitive answer on whether this thing helps with redness? I tend toward redness on one cheek and am wondering if using this would eradicate it over time. Anyone have that experience? TIA! Very Happy
