Does anyone notice plumping of the lips with the lightstim? also increase in color of lips

I was curious because I seem to notice this especially right after a treatment. It doesn't last all day, but i'm hoping with time it will last. I'm also hoping i'm not imagining things,lol


Also it the long run will the lightstim actually incrase the collagen in the lips?

Thanks for reading!

Yay, I got it today!

I've tried it out on 2 spots so far. I'll use it more tonight. The directions say to close the eye closest to the light. Do you all do that? That's kind of annoying.


If I don't close my eyes or use goggles I get a headache. My eyes are sensitive but it's an intense light so I would be careful with your eyes. Good luck Ryan with the Lightstim!

Yeah I started closing at least one eye and I'm used to it now; not as annoying as I thought. I use the timer on my iphone and just restart it after 3 minutes. The least annoying alarm was the Harp sound. Very Happy 3 minutes just feels longer than I thought, haha.

I really like it so far. It feels nice. I think this will def work out better for me than the DPL for my face. With my ADD, it's hard to just sit with my eyes closed for 9-18 minutes. I like that while using the LS, I can watch TV or read online. And I like the closer contact with the skin.

Laughing I use the harp sound too, lol. I used to use my watch, and the beep beep beep was so blaring compared to the beautiful strums of the harp. Now I am working up the finances to buy a second Lightstim... My routine takes me about 30 -45 minutes. Mostly it's fine, but sometimes it would be nice to cut down the time.

P.S. I have a new favorite serum for use just before my session. It's called "Real Transformation Serum." OMG the next day my skin looks flawless. So smooth and even.

http://www.shelleyhancock.com/realtransformationserum.html

(There is a "try me" size for $20 that is a very nice option)

Grape Extract: Contains antioxidant qualities like vitamin C and vitamin E.

Japanese Green Tea: Anancient Asian plant with the ability to inhibit free
radicals from additional cell damage.

Cucumber: Cucumber is a natural astringent, tightens pores and has
skin-soothing, skin-conditioning properties.

Wheat Protein: Has proteins and amino acids that are easily absorbed in the skin.
A hydrating complex that offers a soothing feeling.

Tamarind Seed Extract: Known for encouraging skin repair, it also helps as an
environmental skin protection and for pre-mature ageing of the skin. The
moisturizing power of the tamarind is compared to be equally as effective as
Hyaluronic Acid.

Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3: Perks up and increases skin firmness.

Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3: PP3 has been shown to stimulate the progress of new collagen and elastin. Has a heal-and-repair response in the dermis of the skin. Noticeably increases skin thickness and improve the appearance of aging skin.

Palmitoyl Oligopeptide: This peptide is compared as the next best thing to retinol, but without any side effects. Studies have shown that palmitoyl oligopeptide can increase collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid production. The effects are smoother, wrinkle-free rejuvenated-looking skin.

"This product started out to be used in microcurrent treatments but we realized that we had a really wonderful product here that shouldn't be used only in treatment. The ingredients and formulation is just too good not to sell it to our clients for home-use."

I am not sure why or how it is different from the AALS but you can find it on numerous sites including the official site?

http://www.lightstim.com/lightstim-for-wrinkles.html

LightStim for Wrinkles
The combination of amber, red and infrared LED light is the most powerful and effective way to create collagen and elastin. LightStim for Wrinkles is Over-The-Counter FDA cleared for periorbital wrinkles.

We offer our most popular hand-held Light, LightStim for Wrinkles in a consumer version. This Light is identical to the Professional hand-held Anti-Aging Light but with a different shape, slightly smaller handle and more ergonomically designed for the home user.

What is LED Light Therapy?

LED Light Therapy is the use of light to create an anti-aging effect on the skin and is quickly becoming recognized as one of the safest, fastest and most affordable ways to achieve younger, more vibrant looking skin. LightStim for Wrinkles penetrates through the epidermis into the dermis layer of the skin, energizing the cells that are responsible for producing collagen. Over time the dermis layer fills up with collagen pushing the fold of the wrinkle out. Collagen helps to plump up the skin thus diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. It’s actually that simple!

Why Use LightStim for Wrinkles?

It’s non-invasive, requires no surgery, no harsh chemicals, no lasers, there is no downtime or recovery time, it’s safe for all skin types, and most importantly IT WORKS! It is today’s natural skin care at its finest.


Actually if you go to the home page they do not list the AALS at all, so I think it is merely a name change.

http://store.lightstim.com/


On their Professional tab along with other options they do list:

Professional Anti-Aging Light

If you have further interest in professionally utilizing LightStim in your salon or retailing
to your clients please Contact Us for more information and pricing.

http://www.lightstim.com/anti-aging-light.html

There is more info on that link, just don't want to make an even larger post. Very Happy


I plan on watching QVC on the 24th and I hope to buy myself one for mothers day. I am confused on which one to purchase. So, from the above quote- Is it correct of me to assume the lightstim for wrinkles and the ant-aging lightstim are the same products but just snapped differently.
Thanks so much,
Lou

well i started using lightstim march 14th..so its been about 6 weeks. i use it pretty faithfully every night, occasionally taking a night off. i use my own green tea/aloe vera juice concoction as a pre-treatment. let me just say that the results have been phenomenal.

my wrinkles are just slowling lifting off my face..skin tone is way more even..firmer, younger. funny, but since i started using this thing i have been carded like 10 times. at first i was flattered, now its just irritating. my boyfriend, who uses no product, and thought i was wasting my money, has totally complimented my skin several times and says i look 6 years younger.

this machine is one of the best investments i have ever made! i just wanted to update everyone and let them know...lightstim works for me!

Great to hear. I think I am about two weeks in and I see a huge difference in my skintone. I am targeting forehead and a few lines on my neck.

I am doing about 5 minutes per area - expect around my eyes which I am doing 3.

I have been using on a bare face for the most part (sometimes I use 2nd gen CP serum). I am trying to use up the 2nd gen. CP serum and begin using NCN's new GHK serum which I think will be more effective and gentle.

FWIW, "5" minute treatments are not better when it comes to the AALS. Studies proved it takes just 3 minutes for the cells to be targeted..

The ACNE LED on the other hand, requires 5 minutes per spot in order to kill the acne causing bacteria.

Do 3 minutes to every area you wish to treat and then let your targeted cells do what nature intends.. Collagen synthesis is a wondrous thing really. And the most fascinating thing about it, is what we can't see, that is happening at the cellular level...

My best advice;

- don't overdue (more isn't always better)
- nourish your skin with antioxidants, peptides and botanicals
- always be well hydrated (but especially before and after your LED treatments)

Anyhoo, that's my 2 cents worth... Very Happy

ETA: Just wanted to add something I noticed lately (Blast that damn magnifying mirror.) I know the AALS is FDA approved for periorbital wrinkles, and some seem to be getting good results. Just wanted to say that although the crows feet at the side/corner of my eyes seems to be responding a *tiny* bit positively, I'm noticing a deepening of a line I have directly under both eyes.. Could just be the nature of the beast age wise, but thought it was worth sharing for other old geezers... Also, I am not noticing any improvement in the sag department.. What I can say on a positive note though, is I believe these treatments have WITHOUT A DOUBT slowed the aging process to a crawl.. (I keep hearing things like; "Jeez, don't you ever get older.) I'm good with that..LOL! Laughing

Thank you, Kassy for the pointers on timing with the Lightstim. I have wondered if going over "problem" areas twice would be worth it, but my routine already takes me a good 45 minutes as it is. I try and target *everything* with perhaps some lapping over.

And I agree... I don't notice much improvement after all this time in the sag department, but the glow is definite. Especially with a good serum. I love how peptides help the process...

Once in a while, but not very often, we are asked if LED lights can be harmful to ones eye sight. We have not found any medical tests suggesting that or any spas, estheticians or Dermotologist (all of which use these lights everyday) having every experienced that. At the very end of this article it speaks of Dr. Whelan and some other doctors doing a trial using LED light to help with the current leading cause of blindness in the US!

DarkMoon, do these studies apply to all LED (I have to go make pancakes for my little boy so I can't read them yet Laughing).

I've been considering getting the DPL panel from NCN (there is a discount code that makes it a little more attractive). I love my Lightstim but would love a panel for when I just don't have the time at night.

However I don't know if it's as effective? Anyone have the DPL and can comment?

ETA: And THANK YOU for compiling such a fantastic list!! Wow!

Luminosity,

I won't take credit,

They are listed on the LightStim site as outside references which they are and yes they are applicable to all LED's for skin care. Very Happy

Here is one of the studies/abstracts:

Abstract
Background and Objectives
Photomodulation has been described as a process which modifies cell activity using light sources without thermal effect. The objective of this study was to investigate the use of a non-thermal low dose light emitting diode (LED) array for improving the appearance of photoaged subjects.

Study Design/Materials and Methods
This prospective study investigated a random cohort of patients (N = 90) with a wide range of photoaged skin treated by LED photomodulation® using a full panel 590 nm non-thermal full face LED array delivering 0.1 J/cm2 with a specific sequence of pulsing. Subjects were evaluated at 4, 8, 12, 18 weeks and 6 and 12 months after a series of 8 treatments delivered over 4 weeks. Data collected included stereotactic digital imaging, computerized optical digital profilometry, and peri-ocular biopsy histologic evaluations for standard stains and well as collagen synthetic and degradative pathway immunofluorescent staining.

Results
Digital imaging data showed a reduction of signs of photoaging in 90% of subjects with smoother texture, reduction of peri-orbital rhytids, and reduction of erythema and pigmentation. Optical profilometry showed a 10% improvement by surface topographical measurements. Histologic data showed markedly increased collagen in the papillary dermis of 100% of post-treatment specimens (N = 10). Staining with anti-collagen I antibodies demonstrated a 28% (range: 10%–70%) average increase in density while staining with anti-matrixmetalloproteinase (MMP)-1 showed an average reduction of 4% (range: 2%–40%). No side effects or pain were noted.

Conclusions
Photomodulation to reverse photoaging is possible with a specific array of LEDs with a specific fluence using a precise pulsing or “code” sequence. Skin textural improvement by digital imaging and surface profilometry is accompanied by increased collagen I deposition with reduced MMP-1 (collagenase) activity in the papillary dermis. This technique is a safe and effective non-painful non-ablative modality for improvement of photoaging. © 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

Very Happy
I know the specific range (wave length) is important regarding what is effective and what the use is intended for.

I recall Keliu and some others are using the DPL and happy with it due to it being a much shorter treatment time, Hopefully one of the owners of that will pop in and give you more information on them. Very Happy

I've been considering getting the DPL panel from NCN (there is a discount code that makes it a little more attractive). I love my Lightstim but would love a panel for when I just don't have the time at night.

However I don't know if it's as effective? Anyone have the DPL and can comment?

ETA: And THANK YOU for compiling such a fantastic list!! Wow!


Luminosity,

I won't take credit,

They are listed on the LightStim site as outside references which they are and yes they are applicable to all LED's for skin care. Very Happy

Here is one of the studies/abstracts:

Abstract
Background and Objectives
Photomodulation has been described as a process which modifies cell activity using light sources without thermal effect. The objective of this study was to investigate the use of a non-thermal low dose light emitting diode (LED) array for improving the appearance of photoaged subjects.

Study Design/Materials and Methods
This prospective study investigated a random cohort of patients (N = 90) with a wide range of photoaged skin treated by LED photomodulation® using a full panel 590 nm non-thermal full face LED array delivering 0.1 J/cm2 with a specific sequence of pulsing. Subjects were evaluated at 4, 8, 12, 18 weeks and 6 and 12 months after a series of 8 treatments delivered over 4 weeks. Data collected included stereotactic digital imaging, computerized optical digital profilometry, and peri-ocular biopsy histologic evaluations for standard stains and well as collagen synthetic and degradative pathway immunofluorescent staining.

Results
Digital imaging data showed a reduction of signs of photoaging in 90% of subjects with smoother texture, reduction of peri-orbital rhytids, and reduction of erythema and pigmentation. Optical profilometry showed a 10% improvement by surface topographical measurements. Histologic data showed markedly increased collagen in the papillary dermis of 100% of post-treatment specimens (N = 10). Staining with anti-collagen I antibodies demonstrated a 28% (range: 10%–70%) average increase in density while staining with anti-matrixmetalloproteinase (MMP)-1 showed an average reduction of 4% (range: 2%–40%). No side effects or pain were noted.

Conclusions
Photomodulation to reverse photoaging is possible with a specific array of LEDs with a specific fluence using a precise pulsing or “code” sequence. Skin textural improvement by digital imaging and surface profilometry is accompanied by increased collagen I deposition with reduced MMP-1 (collagenase) activity in the papillary dermis. This technique is a safe and effective non-painful non-ablative modality for improvement of photoaging. © 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

I know the specific range (wave length) is important regarding what is effective and what the use is intended for.

I recall Keliu and some others are using the DPL and happy with it due to it being a much shorter treatment time, Hopefully one of the owners of that will pop in and give you more information on them. Very Happy


Thank you! Great information to have on the process. Dancing

I think you will find the information on the DPL on this thread, apparently there are others but this seems the most recent. Very Happy

Oh my... wish I had not read that thread now Laughing I want one! You get to wear the Evil Queen crown now, DarkMoon!!! And let's not even talk about my unmet desire for a microcurrent unit ...

The problem with face exercises is that you actually have to do them. It's a funny thing Rolling Eyes .... And one I constantly fall short of. I guess that's why there are gadgets!! Bad Grin

Hmm, don't want this to sound conceited, but my skin looks kind of amazing right now. LOL.

The only thing I've been doing is LS for a couple of weeks and I started Tanaka last week. I do have one pimple on my lip (those are the worst kind, ugh!!) and I think that's probably from still experimenting with what kind of cream to use with the massage. My skin just looks healthy and definitely seems to have a glow. I didn't really have wrinkles to get rid of, hopefully the LS and sunscreen will keep them at bay.

I have always looked younger than my age and I came here to look for preventative techniques and figured I better get a routine down while I'm still relatively young. So far, the LS and Tanaka "feel" right to me. I'm still not sure about facial exercises, so I've backed off of that for now. The next thing I want to get is the Yamuna set. That is something that really sounds like it would be beneficial to prevent sag if you start young. So hopefully, with these tools so far, I'm on my way to being "ageless"! (Haha, well not really, but as close as I can get.)

It sounds as if you're on the right track!

Keep in mind I was still being carded up until my last birthday. In fact on my 42nd I was carded!! Happy birthday, me! Laughing

I've always looked young but now that I'm 43 heading to 44, I finally see the aging process in full swing. It's almost as if it crept up on me overnight. Not really, but within a year, I can see a difference and that's the funny lesson.

Nothing lasts... the LS will only help so much... much more important is self-acceptance, lots of love, and that special gadget or two (or three). Wink
