LightStim Reviews

LightStim is a handheld LED device that delivers low intensity light energy similar to a process called plant photosynthesis whereby plants absorb light energy from the sun.

How does LightStim work? LightStim emits UV-free rays that convert sunlight into cellular building blocks that stimulate the body’s natural process to build new proteins and regenerate cells. LightStim can be performed from the comfort of your own home.

If you stick with it for a few months you will see some results. However, don’t expect Lightslim to smooth out wrinkles and increase collagen production. However, LED light therapy has been shown to improve skin tone and texture with continued use. In recent clinical studies, LightStim has shown to improve skin elasticity. This just hasn’t been our experience.

LightStim can be used anywhere on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, back legs. LightStim claims to “reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, restore your skins youthful appearance and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.” LightStim is approved by the FDA for the treatment of periorbital wrinkle (think crow’s feet). In our experience, LED devices are ineffective in promoting collagen production or smoothing our wrinkles.

We have been using led devices for over two decades and have seen little or no results from very sophisticated devices that cost hundreds of times more than LightStin and operated by qualified cosmetic physicians. This makes us sceptical about what a small handheld LED device can achieve. We have, however, found LED devices to be quite useful in refining pores, softening scarring and promoting an even texture.

Therefore, we encourage regular use of LED devices as part of your skin care routine. LightStim can be purchase directly through, Ulta, QVC, SkinStore, Blissword, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Dermstore, Ebay and Amazon. We suggest looking at the retailers money back guarantee policy before making a purchase. LightStim has numerous media mentions, including write ups in Elle, NewBeauty, InStyle, Self, Extra, Redbook, NewBeauty, The Talk and Departures. There are no side effects, downtime or pain associated with LightStim treatments. There are three unique handpeices that each target a specific issue. The orange handpiece has been designed to target Fine Lines and Wrinkle. The blue handpiece has been specifically developed to target acne breakouts. The red handpiece has been developed to target inflammation. We have concentrated on the red handiece as part of our LightStim review, We may review other LightStim products but for now we are focusing on anti aging solutions. LightStim is priced between $199 and $249.

Our review leads us to conclude that LightStim is a good tool to help improve skin tone. Thank you for taking the time to read our review of LightStim. I’d love to know what you think about LightStim. Please feel free to share your LightStim review below. Hope you enjoy LightStim, if you buy it.

    I don’t know who wrote the body of the material at the beginning of this page, but, next time you type a promotional for a product you should take the little bit of extra time it takes to proof your verbiage. It reflects poorly on the product and the company making the claim when so many grammatical errors appear in the text. Just a suggestion. I use the original LightStim to dry the creams and serums that I apply at night to not only speed up the absorption process but to take advantage of the light’s properties as well. As a side note, I would add that most who apply overnight skin products go to bed then lay their heads down on cotton pillow cases. I have found that this one mistake makes a huge difference in the results of all of the work done in applying products in the first place. The cotton wicks the added moisture from your face during the night. If you buy a certain non-cotton case designed for this purpose (Amazon sells these at a reasonable price) you’ll find the difference remarkable. Trust me on that. Fact: I will soon be 64 years old but not a soul believes me when I admit it. It’s due, in part, to good genes, but, I am fanatical in maintaining my skin and try to take as good care of it as possible at home. I don’t use facialists like I once did… I don’t need to use them. I do it myself. Consider the pillow case though. I promise that you will be glad you did.

    I am very satisfied with the results from Lightstim. Heaviest lines wore on my forehead and slowly it went away with use ( dimished from outside corners I left that faint, little bit alone in the center). I had some noticible crows feet and that went away. I think it was within 2 weeks use. Just this week I removed the lines between my eyes with one use ( 3 min). After I get results, I tend to stop using it for a while because I think a face without any lines is kind of strange at this point. I bought it around 1.5 years ago..when I was 50-51. Recently, I noticed that if I lose only a couple of pounds, my pores are noticible..which didn’t happen before so I will use it on my cheek area and see how it works on my pores. So I like what it does for me so far.

    I understood the theory behind Lighstim and bought this because I wanted to improve my skin’s overall health. I bought a different led device last year and the product was very poorly made. Lightstim seems properly made. Lighstim seems to work for me. My skin feels less sensitive. Ive heard from skin care professionals that this works.

    Hi.. This is to Candice, whose daughter is benefiting from using the ultraviolet end of the light spectrum to heal up her acne.. It’s no coincidence it works, as the ultraviolet spectrum kills bacteria as well as improves circulation and oxygenation to the skin. The infrared and red light, however, works better for cooling inflammation, and brightening dull, more mature skin.

    Happy Holidays!

    have been using lightstim anti-aging light for 2 months and not seen any different in my skin. daughter has been using lightstim acne light and her acne is slowly clearing up. could be coincidental but she seems to like lightstim.

    I have been using the LightStim for 10 months and can definitely notice a reduction in my facial lines and wrinkles. It’s slow-going but, since it’s permanent, it seems worth it. At 39, my photos reveal about as many lines as I had at 34, so I will keep on going! Try to use it while you’re watching TV though (sometimes out of one eye) or you’ll get bored and give up.

    I find it hard to believe that anybody saw any improvement in wrinkles using Lightstim. I have been using it for 6 weeks and no change. I read a review about a lady who saw results in 3 days. I guess it works differently for everybody.

  8. Vivianne

    I bought this like many others after reading many positive reviews. I have been using it for 6 months and I have not seen any changes in my skin. I cannot feel anything working. It just feels like you are sitting in front of a light.

    I just received my LightStim and it was beautifuly packaged and has an elegant design. It is much nicer than the derma wand packaging and I already feel this is going to work better. I read that it is the same device they use in clinics to treat a variety of different problems but overall it just helps keep skin radiant and glowing. I will write a review on LightStim after I have used it for 8 months.
