LightStim (LED Therapy)

LightStim Therapy in Central Alabama | Alabama Vein & Restoration Medspa

Lightstim is a FDA approved procedure that is safe for multiple uses, including:

  • facial wrinkles such as crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and forehead lines
  • mild to moderate acne in adults and teenagers
  • pain caused from arthritis, injuries, post-workout soreness, and muscle stiffness.
When it comes to wrinkles, Lightstim utilizes multiple wavelengths of red light to heat the deep tissues of the skin, as well as stimulate collagen production in skin. Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin firm, healthy, and youthful. As we age, collagen production decreases. However, Lightstim helps pick up the slack by promoting increased collagen. For acne, Lightstim uses a combination of blue and red light to both treat acne and prevent future acne breakouts. The blue light kills surface bacteria that can lead to acne, as well as minimizes the production of sebum from oil glands to prevent breakouts. At the same time, the red light helps to reduce inflammation and the redness that comes with acne.
