A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend Cosmoprof North America – a huge trade show in Las Vegas for professionals in the beauty product business. [You can learn more and check out my recap + photos here.]
I was introduced to a number of new and new-to-me companies, and I wanted to take the time to introduce some of my top favorites. I’ll also be sharing more fabulous brands I met in the coming weeks, but this week I’m focused on sharing three amazing brands. Check back tomorrow for a makeup company you cannot miss!
First up, I can not resist sharing one of my prized finds at Cosmoprof: LightStim.
LightStim uses LED light therapy to deliver the energy from light into skin, kind of like the way plants absorb light energy from the sun. The light therapy rays from LightStim are UV-free, though, making it safe for skin. The light rays help energize cells and stimulate the body’s process to regenerate cells, making healing quicker. That alone makes me say “gimme gimme gimme!”
I was provided with the 3 types of LightStim wands available. Each of the 3 help the body in various ways with different lights:
LightStim for Wrinkles (pictured above) helps to reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles while restoring the skin’s youthful appearance and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. It comes with a collagen peptide serum which helps to enhance the benefits of LightStim by nourishing, hydrating and firming the skin. LightStim for Wrinkles has been FDA cleared to use on the entire face! You can use it to help treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, nasal labial folds (smile lines), and the wrinkles around your lips.
LightStim for Acne helps to heal and calm your already existing breakouts, as well as destroy bacteria that causes acne to minimize future breakouts. It can be used by all skin types and tones. LightStim for Acne contains a red and blue light. The blue light destroys bacteria and the red light reduces redness.
LightStim for Pain temporarily relieves pain and discomfort caused by arthritis, sore muscles and joints. It also speeds healing time and minimizes bruising. LightStim for Pain emits a warm and soothing light energy that reduces inflammation and increases blood circulation. This helps accelerate your body’s healing process and naturally relieve pain. Besides arthritis and bruising, LightStim for Pain can also be used for post-workout soreness, backaches and to speed the healing of cuts.
The photo below is LightStim for Wrinkles and includes everything you receive with that purchase. (Pain and Acne wands do not contain the collagen peptide serum. And yes, only this one is pink, but it also comes in white.)
LightStim also comes along with an App Store app to time each treatment so you don’t over or under do it, and really, treatments are easy. You place the LightStim on various section of your face and body for a few minutes. The app tells you when to move your LightStim. In just minutes a day you can improve your skin or body pain.
Each LightStim is manufactured in the USA and is rechargeable, so there are no battery, light or maintenance costs after your purchase. LightStim is also approved by medical spas, estheticians, dermatologists and doctors, which gives me peace of mind in using it. And it is not a watered-down product. This is the same strength and technology as dermatologists, just in a handy home-friendly size.
There is so much more information available at lightstim.com. I’m still very much fawning over LightStim. I’ve only tried LightStim for Wrinkles so far, and although it’s too early to see results, it is very easy to use and I have not had any adverse side effects because of it. I’ll be using LightStim for Pain next. I have terrible back pain, so I’m excited to see if it can ease my suffering!
