REVIEW – LightStim for Wrinkles

LightStim For Wrinkles - LED Light Therapy
REVIEW UPDATE: LightStim for Wrinkles

This is an important review update that I’ve put off for weeks. I’ve even included before and after shots (not for the fainthearted, look away now if you’re that way inclined). I think a photographic record is needed to illustrate how far I’ve come with LightStim LED Light Therapy.

I look back on the photos and they upset me a lot, but I’ve bitten the bullet and published them and I hope they’re helpful.


I was invited to trial LightStim for Wrinkles in June this year. This is the original pre-review post. I also did a post in March about my allergic reaction to a mandarin essential oil, called Help for Hives. I hadn’t realised then how devastating it would prove to be and how long it would last.

Holy sh*t! How did I leave the house looking like this?

I had to wait three long months for the rash and swelling to disappear completely – Newsflash, it gets much much worse before it gets better, but I was left with deep grooves and an extremely crepey and ‘puckered’ neck. Unfortunately, because I couldn’t (wouldn’t) use ANY skincare products on my neck, it became dehydrated and lined. Once you’ve been scarred (literally!) by a rash, you will do anything not to aggravate it further.

To be clear, I waited for the rash to subside – three LONG months before I used LightStim.

I’m diligent when it comes to testing products for this website. I’m given a job to do and I will do it to the best of my ability. Is using LightStim four times a week a bit of a chore sometimes? Eh, yes! But when I see the results, I know it’s been worth it and I’m so grateful to have been given this opportunity.

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which is a tiny computer chip encased in glass. Each LED wavelength (colour) of light provides unique therapeutic benefits.

LED is non-invasive, painless and requires no recovery time. This Light is good for all skin types and is engineered to emit a soothing gentle warmth.

LightStim for Acne Mini has 36 Blue LEDs.

I have to credit the LightStim product because it was the only thing I used (and continue to) on my neck. LightStim is no overnight sensation, you HAVE to use it regularly and for a prolonged period. I have seen a tangible improvement to my face in texture and a fair fine line decrease, but that is nothing in comparison to what it’s done for my neck.

LightStim’s proprietary Multi-Wave technology takes skincare beyond where it has ever gone before, combining 4 therapeutic wavelengths (colours) of light that penetrate the top layer of your skin to help stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin.

I’m the first to criticise before and after photos but you can see exactly what LightStim has achieved and how it’s plumped up the skin on my neck. I’ve tried my best to match new photos (taken this morning), to the original poses – ie line up the moles.

I have now moved on to the LED Neck mask from CurrentBody as it covers my neck and décolletage and takes 10 minutes for one whole treatment.

    Wow… that before/after difference is INSANE! I’ve been curious about light therapy… I have a lot of damage from the sun and from smoking that may not yet have surfaced on my face, so I was looking for something to counteract past damage. Are there any other benefits that you’ve noticed for your face? Also… noted: stay away from mandarin essential oil!

    Hi Kareen, thanks so much for commenting.
    LightStim was a lifesaver for me, but I didn’t start to use it until the rash had completely cleared up. You can see though, that there are faint pink patches in the same ‘old’ rash pattern. They only appear whenever I get hot, tired or stressed – which I did when I was looking at the old rash photos!
    I did notice that the areas around my eyes softened slightly, but it was nothing compared to my neck.
    I think LED Light Therapy would help with fine lines around your mouth, plus lots of moisturiser to plump up your lips.
    I still haven’t used a moisturiser on my neck area, I’m just too scared!
