Does it really work?
Yes, if used per the instructions.
How does it work?
Your body creates bacteria on a daily basis, clogging your pores and creating breakouts. The Acne Light contains blue LEDs that kill the P. acnes bacteria, while red and infrared LEDs reduce the inflammation and redness caused by the pimples or pustules. Using your Acne Light on a daily basis destroys the bacteria, while at the same time reduces redness and inflammation, giving you control over your acne.
Once my skin clears up what do I do?
Once your skin is clear, continue to use the Acne Light daily for 2 more weeks. After 2 weeks use the Light every 2-3 days. Each person’s skin is unique and once your skin is clear you need to be aware of you own personal triggers that cause your acne. Use the Light more often when those triggers occur.
What if I have cystic acne?
The Acne Light is designed for mild to moderate acne. Many people have used the Light with success on cystic acne, depending on its severity. If you do have a cyst hold the Acne Light on the area for 15 minutes, 2 times a day to help reduce the inflammation.
How long does the device last?
LightStim is designed with high-end components; the LEDs should never need to be replaced.
Does it work for everybody?
Yes, it's not a matter of "Is it going to work for me?" it's a matter of "How long is it going to take to work?". On average it takes approximately 2-6 weeks to clear the skin. Proper use of the Light, diet, hormonal activity, environment, and hygiene play an integral part in your success.
How often do I need to use the Acne Light?
Daily, until your skin clears. Once your skin is clear, continue to use the Acne Light daily for 2 more weeks. After 2 weeks use the Light every 2-3 days.
Can I use my existing skin care products?
Yes, there is no need to change your skin care regimen. We suggest using the Acne light on clean, dry skin. If you suffer from dry skin you can use a good peptide serum or moisturizer before using the Light. You want to ensure the products you use are noncomedogenic (not tending to clog pores). Products that can cause dryness or irritation such as benzoyl peroxide, Retin-A, or products containing Vitamin A or alcohol should only be applied after using your Light.

Yes. This is technology you can trust, initially used by NASA for wound healing in space.
