If you have started to notice fine lines and creases when you examine your face in the mirror, you might benefit from getting a LightStim treatment. In addition to fading your lines and folds, this non-invasive beauty treatment can improve your acne and skin tone. Read on to learn more about the benefits of receiving this beauty treatment from the True Skin Care Center in Chicago, IL.
Does LightStim Work for Wrinkles?
LightStim is a state-of-the-art treatment that uses light energy to brighten and smooth your skin. This treatment is an excellent way to remove fine lines and wrinkles from your face. In addition, this treatment will work for all different skin tones and types.
The Effects of Age
Wrinkles develop because your skin becomes weaker and less flexible as you get older. You were born with stretchy, voluminous skin. At this time, your body created very high amounts of elastin and collagen. Unfortunately, your body’s production of these useful proteins will slow down as you get older.
Your body ceases to prioritize collagen production in the skin as you grow older. However, since this is a natural process, you will not be able to prevent your skin from changing as you continue to age. In fact, you will experience this change even if you always wear sunscreen and use high-quality beauty products. This development will cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear on the surface of your skin.
Treating Your Wrinkles
This treatment erases your wrinkles by sending controlled amounts of LED light into the outer layers of your skin. This light energy will help your body make additional elastin and collagen proteins. As the condition of your skin improves, your fine lines and wrinkles will fade away.
Can This Treatment Improve Other Problems?
In addition to fixing your wrinkles, we can use LightStim to correct several other skin conditions. In particular, the LED lighting that we send into your skin can improve the appearance of your acne and balance your skin tone. In addition, our treatment may minimize symptoms of arthritis and improve discomfort that is associated with muscle and joint problems.
How Does This Treatment Improve Acne?
Bacteria can cause your pimples and other blemishes to become inflamed and swollen. During your treatment, we will use LED light to kill bacteria on the surface of your skin. In addition to killing bacteria, this light energy can reduce inflammation and improve the tone of your skin. Over time, your acne breakouts will decrease and your skin will become brighter and healthier.
What Will Happen During My Skin Treatment?
When you arrive at our Chicago office, we will ask you to sit down in a comfortable chair. Once you are seated, we will put several of our LED light panels into position. We will use these panels to send energy into your face. To protect yourself, you will need to close your eyes during this part of your treatment.
After we finish sending this energy into your body, we will use a handheld device to transmit additional LED light into your tissues. We will use our training to target the most beneficial areas of your face. Since this process will be customized to address your unique skin issues, the length of your LightStim treatment will vary. That said, your appointment will typically last for 20 to 30 minutes.
Will My Treatment Be Uncomfortable?
This LED light treatment is very soothing and gentle. In fact, it’s common to feel very relaxed as the light energy enters your tissues. Since this process is very easy, you won’t need to receive local anesthesia before we transmit the LED light energy into your skin. The whole experience should be a relaxing and enjoyable part of your day.
Will I Be Able To Go Home After My Treatment Is Complete?
The LED energy that we send into your facial tissues is very safe and gentle. As a result, you will be able to immediately leave our Chicago office and return to your house or complete other activities. In addition, this beauty treatment will not alter your skin’s reaction to sunlight. Instead of staying inside, you will be able to continue enjoying hikes, sports, and other outdoor activities.
When Will My Wrinkles Improve?
Your wrinkles will decrease as your body creates new elastin and collagen proteins. Since this process takes time, you will typically see changes in your fine lines and wrinkles after six to eight weeks.
Will I Need To Receive Multiple Treatments?
In general, you will see the most dramatic changes in your face after you receive multiple aesthetic treatments. When you schedule your initial meeting, we will help you create a beauty plan that will allow you to achieve the most significant improvements in your lines and wrinkles.
