In 2020 the new normal includes many things: Adding “unprecedented times” to your daily vocabulary, practicing social distancing, quarantining, and wearing a mask. While we strongly believe in safety best practices, we also know that wearing a face mask can cause skin irritation, itching, and breakouts.
That’s where the LightStim comes in: this procedure is a great way to combat mask-related irritation and also a great way to treat yourself. Two birds, one treatment. Here’s everything you need to know about fighting “maskne” and achieving flawless skin.
LightStim is an innovative device that uses LED light therapy to deliver UV-free energy to the skin. Similar to plants, our skin and tissue have the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy.
First things first: Let’s talk about acne.
Acne is caused by clogged pores; this clog begins with dead skin cells and sebum oil. Sebum oil is a naturally occurring oil that keeps skin from drying out. When the dead skin cells shed, instead of rising to the surface, the sebum oil keeps the cells trapped in the pore, which leads to bacteria, thus leading to what we call acne. Inside the pore, the bacteria have the perfect opportunity to multiply quickly leading to inflammation. While wearing a mask can save lives, it can trap bacteria and contribute to breakouts.
This is where LightStim comes in.
Each LightStim handheld treatment uses different colors and wavelengths to target specific skin problems. The condition treated depends on the wavelength and color of the device. When LightStim is applied directly to the skin it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, temporarily increase blood circulation, and treat mild to moderate acne. The beneficial LED light source promotes healing within the body. Every color has its own unique, therapeutic benefits that help you achieve the skin you’ve always dreamed of.
The acne-focused LightStim device relies on blue light. Blue light destroys acne-causing bacteria, helping you clear existing breakouts in order to give you visibly improved, healthy-looking skin.
Sounds simple enough, right? Well, it gets even better. LighStim treatments are quick, painless and require no downtime — which means you’ll be okay to put on makeup and resume outdoor activities immediately after your appointment. Additionally, LightStim procedures only take 20 minutes, so you’ll be in and out before your lunch break is over.
While you’ll start to notice results right away, the LED light stimulates collagen and elastin growth which means your optimized results will be visible eight weeks following your appointment.
