LightStim® is an LED treatment. LED = light-emitting diode.
A diode turns electrical energy into light energy, released in the form of photons. Photons are packets of light energy absorbed by a molecule in the body. These molecules in the body are called chromophores. Chromophores absorb or reflect light energy and are termed “photoacceptors”. For light to be used it needs to be absorbed. This stimulates Photobiomodulation (PBM). PBM is the use of light to modulate biology. How much light energy is needed? That is determined by results. Light stim produces results!!
Light Stim has three treatment diodes that have been FDA cleared.
There are 400 clinically published studies. Dr. Harry Whelan was one of the first to study LED or light therapy at NASA. Thanks to the many studies, we now know of all the benefits of Light therapy in the skin:
Inflammation is involved in the process and is central to skin aging. It damages the cell structures and functions. It impairs the skin barrier. It leads to fine lines and wrinkles and causes hyperpigmentation. How to protect against inflammation:
*** In studies, LED therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation. It has been shown to stimulate cellular function, repair, and rebuild cell structures and tissues.***
The options for treatments at RMD:
We have a Light Stim panel in the office for the most time-efficient treatment for anti-aging LED treatment of face or hands. It is a hands-free device that can be used as a stand-alone treatment or an add-on to another service. We also have handheld professional in-room treatment devices that can be an add-on to another service. While occasional treatment shows great results, more is better. We do have handheld devices that can be purchased at RMD for use at home for anti-aging, acne, or pain treatments.
**FDA Study did show 100% improvement in wrinkles at 8 weeks when used 5-7 times/week during that time.

Look at that forehead and the reduction of wrinkles.
LightStim LED can be used in combination integrative therapies for enhanced results. It works synergistically with other regenerative services, such as:
With this wavelength, it can help decrease inflammation, swelling, and bruising. Prolonged at-home treatment with a handheld device is the most effective.
