Candidates for LightStim Light Therapy

LightStim is FDA-approved, safe, and appropriate for all skin types and colors. Ideal candidates are men or women who have some or all of the following concerns:

  • Have facial flaws such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, or acne
  • Are not happy with their skin
  • Are experiencing pain or are in recovery after a treatment
  • Would like a non-invasive solution to their concerns

What is LightStim?

LightStim is a non-invasive, painless treatment system that uses low-level light therapy or LLLT. LLLT has been shown to increase wound healing, relieve pain, decrease inflammation, heal wounds, and regenerate tissues.

LLLT utilizes red light energy. When red light energy is applied to our cells, it is converted to a usable form, in a similar way that plants are able to use energy from sunlight to grow. In this way, LLLT stimulates cellular healing and boosts circulation. 

The LightStim device uses LLLT wavelengths between 600nm-900nm. We have two units, the LightStim Anti-aging Pro-Panel and the LightStim For Pain Pro-Panel. The anti-aging panel specifically targets skin health, wound healing, and wrinkle reduction. The pain reduction panel has many of the same wavelengths and similar benefits to the anti-aging panel, but adds a deep infrared to penetrate deeper and relieve pain in deeper tissues, making it an ideal treatment for patients post surgery.

LightStim Treatments:

  • BBL (intense pulsed light) treatments
  • Enzyme treatments and chemical peels
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Injectables such as fillers and Botox

Post-surgical treatments:

To reduce pain and boost healing. LightStim treatments are highly effective after surgery to decrease inflammation, speed healing and decrease pain. We incorporate it into the post-operative regime for many of our surgeries to help our patients during their recovery period.

How does LightStem LED Light Therapy Work?

The LightStim device exposes the skin to light-emitting diodes (LED.) The different wavelengths of light penetrates into the skin at different depths to trigger different cellular responses. The LightStim ProPanel Anti-Aging heats the deeper tissues of the skin, which stimulates the natural rejuvenation process. Red light triggers the production of collagen and elastin, which provides healing and rejuvenation and increases circulation. 

The LightStim ProPanel Anti-Aging Light combines four different red light wavelengths to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tone and tighten the skin, and achieve a younger, refreshed appearance:

  • Amber 605 nm
  • Red 630 nm
  • Red 660 nm
  • Infrared 855 nm

LightStim Treatment Benefits: 

  • Minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles
  • Reduces redness
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Accelerates recovery from procedures and treatments
  • Reduces and relieves pain
  • Improves acne
  • Rejuvenates the skin 
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Leaves skin with a healthy glow
  • Completely non-invasive, and requires no chemicals or lasers
  • No pain or downtime
  • Safe for use on all skin types


To treat pain, LightStim can help reduce your concern after about 5-30 minutes. When it comes to skin rejuvenation, after your treatments you should immediately notice a healthy glow. However, the more significant results take a longer time to appear because they are generated from within by your body’s natural system. The collagen and elastin take some time to rebuild the skin structure and renew it from within, but by the time eight weeks have passed, you will be able to see more dramatic results.
