I have a couple of questions.

1. What is the difference between the lightstim and the one from LED Technologies? I know that you sit in front of the Light Therapy one and the Lightstim is hand held. Is it worth the extra money to pay for the more expensive one? I like the shorter time needed to use the Light Therapy one.

2. Is there any actual data to say whether or not these products shouldn't be used if you have botox?

Deb,
No one has answered this, but I will just try to contribute my own speculation.

It appears to me that the lightstim also uses LEDs. If the light frequency (measured in nanometers, abbreviated to nm) is comparable, i would guess that the difference is one of intensity, and possibly, of penetration, since the lightstim appears to be held very close to the skin. Is the other one a standup light that bathes the whole face?

A good description of any euipment will include the frequency and strength of light given off by the device.

i assume neither of them pulsates the light.


i have no info at all on the botox question.

I have researched the lightstim and purchased one. Most of the led's are in a range from 630nm, 800nm, up to 1200nm. It does not pulse. I purchased the 1200nm with the red and yellow lights and am pleased with my results only after one wk of use!

The stats mentioned above are not correct.

Per the NEW LightStim website:

- Original LightStim has wavelengths between 600 and 900nm with total output of 10,440mW

- Anti-aging LightStim has wavelengths between 600 and 900nm with a total output of 9,000 mW

I see they now have a large paneled professional unit now too. Too rich for my blood.

I love what the antiaging light has done for me. Really great product.

CORRECTION - the cut and past got me! I updated the Original LS specs below:


Per the NEW LightStim website:

- Original LightStim has wavelengths between 600 and 950nm with total output of 10,440mW

- Anti-aging LightStim has wavelengths between 600 and 900nm with a total output of 9,000 mW
