Skincare and self care routines at home have evolved to resemble in-clinic treatments and facials. Application of topical solutions from creams to serums and oils, is now typically accompanied by state-of-the-art skincare tools designed to boost skin rejuvenation. The home-use beauty device industry, which grew at an exponential rate of up to $1.93 billion in 2021, saw the proliferation of countless LED light masks, wands, and other light therapy tools in the market.
Variety and options abound where at-home beauty devices are concerned. Some devices include frequency (RF) features. Others are configured to offer all the colors of the LED rainbow, allowing users to target specific skin concerns. There are also beauty wands that add cooling and warming modes. Considering the amount of choices now available in the market, finding one that truly delivers on a promise remains a challenge. I’ve personally gone through several masks and wands, most of which are currently parked deep in the beauty shelf. Suffice it to say that these devices still left much to be desired.
The introduction of LYMA Laser last May stirred renewed interest in the wonders of beauty devices. It caused quite the stir among beauty tech enthusiasts, editors, and aficionados. That the Started Kit costs $2,499 made it a conversation started. The power of celebrity has also helped amplify the buzz. Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, Gwyneth Paltrow have also been cited as fans of Lyma Laser. Pre-launch, the talk-of-the-town beauty tool had amassed a record-breaking 10,000-name wait list.
Among beauty enthusiasts, editors, experts, and critics, the in-demand device du jour begged the question: Is it worth the investment?
Beyond the hype, rests LYMA’s tried-and-tested, medically-proven technology. This explains why the breakthrough device is a cut above the rest. The compact, hand held wand borrows near infrared laser light technology from the medical industry to work on the deepest layers of the epidermis. It’s the same technology used by MDs for rebuilding torn cartilage.
The team at LYMA reports, “Operating at 500mW power at 808nm wavelength, the laser can reach not only the deepest layers of the skin, but also the fat and muscle tissue underneath.” As the first and only brand to offer clinical-grade power for at-home use, LYMA Laser is the beauty tool that truly does it all.
One Power Tool For All Your Skincare Woes
The black, sleek beauty device can easily fit into a pouch. It is designed for easy, convenient, and fuss-free use and maintenance. I liken operating my LYMA Laser to turning on a flashlight. It’s that easy.
The benefits of consistent use are next-level. Since a large black box containing my very own LYMA Laser Started Kit arrived a little over a month ago, I’ve completely shelved all thoughts of getting fillers or Botox. And while I truly adore my facialist and visiting her clinic for regular laser treatments, I’ve not made a single trip to her office in a while now.
LYMA’s high powered laser light supports the natural regeneration of skin. The team furthers, “The laser does this by regenerating skin’s collagen naturally, enabling the body to reproduce healthy cells while also reversing the damaging effects of the sun, dehydration, and smoking.” Skincare concerns addressed by LYMA Laser include: skin pigmentation, wrinkles, scarring, acne, and blemishes. The device also helps to improve surface texture, clarity and appearance of pores.
Skincare Should Feel Good
It was during a facial treatment and consultation session with The Farm’s Medical Director of Aesthetic Center that I discovered a new perspective on skincare. The MD specialized in cosmetic surgery, integrative medicine and dermatology said: “For skin to look good, it must feel good. I don’t believe in applying heat on skin. It’s counterintuitive when the goal is to preserve. Think about it this way, when you cook food, ingredients age. When you freeze it, it stays fresh.” The good doctor’s simple yet logical analogy forever changed my beauty philosophy.
The FDA-approved LYMA Laser does not utilize radio frequency or heat to stimulate skin rejuvenation. Instead of utilizing a stress damage response, cold laser light penetrates deep into skin to boost natural bio-stimulation. This makes it not only effective, but also safe even for those with extra sensitive skin. In fact, you can even LYMA Laser it on areas of the body where skin is extra delicate like under the eyes or even on the bikini line.
The little black wand with its high powered LED Light has now become part of the night time self care regimen. After application of current favorites like Cle de Peau’s Le Serum or Drunk Elephant’s Protini Power Peptide Serum, I glide the device over the face or treatment areas for approximately 15 minutes. It’s become a relaxing, feel good ritual just before shut eye. The fine lines and crow’s feet have dramatically diminished, but in the most natural way that reminds us there is nothing more beautiful than to see a woman age gracefully.
Lucy Golf, founder of LYMA and disruptor of the wellness space concludes, “It’s great to see the LYMA Laser in the hands of celebrities and beauty experts, but what’s really special is seeing before and after pictures from people who have faded scars, treated pigmentation and erased wrinkles.”
