Take one look at the new LYMA laser’s before-and-after photos—wrinkles plumped to youthful suppleness, jowls dramatically lifted, hideous knees beautifully smoothed—and you might think they’ve been tampered with. They haven’t; the red light laser is 100 times stronger than LED devices in the home. It tightens and targets wrinkles, texture and elasticity on both the face and body and is FDA approved.
Most lasers use heat to damage the skin, which works to stimulate collagen production. But LYMA works differently: Its near-infrared light penetrates the skin’s base layer to boost collagen production, causing the cells to produce more protein, which in turn fights free radicals and combats the loss of both collagen and elastin. The light technology also triggers the cells’ regenerative power, essentially telling them not to die. All this collagen and elastin support helps transform signs of aging, wrinkles, skin elasticity and acne. And LYMA works without causing pain or sensitivity and requires no downtime. LYMA is even safe to use around the sensitive eye area – no glasses needed – and because the light is fragmented into thousands of smaller beams, it feels like nothing more than a warm flutter over the skin.
To use it, hold the device over the area you want to treat – eg. the outer corners of your eyes or the top of your upper lip – for three minutes every day. (Depending on how many areas you want to treat, you may spend 15 minutes a day total.) Use LYMA while decompressing and see a showin a meeting with your camera off, listening to one podcast, or anytime – the powerhouse 500mW laser is compact and easy to hold, not to mention small enough to fit in a makeup bag and cute and unobtrusive enough to leave out charging on a bathroom shelf or nightstand. It’s also beautifully uncomplicated: There’s an on button and an off button, period.
THE ROUTINE: VERIFY YOUR RESULTS
While LYMA works great on its own, pair it with an easy exfoliating, moisturizing routine and the next-level results will truly multiply.
Smooth on serum in the morning
Serum address everything from boosting radiance to minimizing lines and are the most active treatments in a routine. These are boosted with skin-restoring active ingredients that make a noticeable difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
The fastest way to fill lines and bring skin to life, moisturizers benefit every skin type. Smooth it on after letting your serum sink in for a few minutes.
Finish with sunscreen – the ultimate youth cream
Every day, make your last morning layer an all-mineral sunscreen, and whatever else you do to your skin—creams, lasers, even dermatologist treatments—will actually have a chance to work.
