The LYMA System

How does the LYMA Active Mist work?

The LYMA Active Mist works on the upper layers of the epidermis, increasing turnover of the top layers of skin, smoothing and improving skin’s texture. The mist’s ratio of ions mirrors that of the amniotic fluid, which is the ideal ratio to penetrate skin, nourishing skin from the outside with the right ratio of minerals.

How can I order more LYMA Active Mist and LYMA Priming Serum?

This is sold in a set, available exclusively from LYMA. You can order or subscribe at any time by logging onto your account.

Can I substitute the LYMA Priming Serum for another serum?

No, the LYMA Priming Serum has been formulated to optimise the results of the LYMA Laser and the LYMA Active Mist. This hydrating and immune boosting serum contains three actives. Wellmune® a patened form of beta glucans, Active Stabilised Oxygen, a highly bioavailable liquid form of oxygen and Orchistem™ stem cell technology to help the communication process between the different layers of the skin.

How does the LYMA Priming Serum work?

Wellmune (1-3, 1-6 beta glucans), ASO (Active Stabilised Oxygen), Orchistem™, a propriety orchid extract rich in plant stem cells, minerals and hyaluronic acid. Beta glucans are immune response modifiers, complex polysaccharides derived from a yeast cell wall. Our bodies have developed an immune response to yeast by recognising parts of that molecule as being foreign material and mounting an immune response to it. Not all immune responses are bad. This is a good immune response because what exposure to Wellmune is essentially doing, is providing a transient stimulus that induces your epidermis to repair itself. OrchistemTM stem cell technology also enhances skin repair by stimulating the Langerhans cells at the dermo epidermal junction. Active Stabliised Oxygen delivers a highly bioavailable form of oxygen to the skin. Regular 02 is a gas which the skin is unable to absorb, and regular water holds 40mg of oxygen gas in room temperature which the skin is unable to absorb either. When oxygen is presented in a liquid form as in 04, the skin is able to fully absorb to enable the skin to benefit.

Can I substitute the LYMA Active Mist for spring water?

No, the LYMA Active Mist has a different chemical structure to H20. Oxygen is unable to penetrate the skin when presented in the form of spring water (H20), which is why we have formulated the mist with highly bioavailable 04. Presented in this form, the oxygen is easily able to penetrate the skin. The LYMA Mist also contains Orchistem™ which helps skin cells to communicate more efficiently, to boost the benefits of the LYMA System.

How does the LYMA System work together?

The LYMA System has been created as a complete skin renewal protocol, able to target all layers of the skin, from the surface to the fat and muscle underneath. The LYMA Laser penetrates all the way down to the muscle and fat underneath the skin. The LYMA Priming Serum targets the epidermis and the upper layer of the dermis. The LYMA Active Mist works on the upper layers of the epidermis.

How to use the LYMA Active Mist and LYMA Priming Serum.

Spritz six pumps of LYMA Active Mist onto each area you wish to treat. Allow to sink into the skin and follow with two pumps of the LYMA Priming Serum.

Should I use the LYMA Active Mist and LYMA Priming Serum even when I’m not using the LYMA Laser?

Yes, you should use the LYMA Active Mist and LYMA Priming Serum each morning and evening, regardless of whether you are using the LYMA Laser that day. The powerful actives in the products will help to optimise the function of your skin.

Each morning and evening, after cleansing your skin, you should spray six pumps of the LYMA Active Mist which floods your skin with the highest levels of bioavailable oxygen scientifically possible. You should follow this with two pumps of the LYMA Priming Serum which will hydrate your skin and boost cellular immunity. You can then follow with you skincare product regime.

Contraindications

Can I use the LYMA Laser alongside a topical retinol?

Can I use the LYMA Laser over Botox™ or fillers?

The LYMA Laser is perfectly safe to use on areas of the skin that have been treated with Botox™ or fillers.

Can I use the LYMA Laser if I’m pregnant?

You can safely use the LYMA Laser if you are pregnant, however should not be used over the abdominal area.

Are there any side effects?

There are no known side effects from using the LYMA System. Should you experience discomfort, redness or anything other than natural looking skin, please stop using the LYMA Laser and contact your medical practitioner.

Is laser radiation dangerous?

Laser radiation shouldn’t be confused with radio waves, microwaves or the ionizing x-rays or radiation from radioactive substances such as radium. Laser radiation isn’t harmful and behaves like ordinary light in its interaction with the body.

How the LYMA Laser compares to other at home skin renewal devices?

How does Microcurrent technology compare to Laser light?

To a certain extent, micro current electric is a crude way of doing the same thing LED light does which is energy exchange at a cellular level. They don’t have the potential breadth of cellular effect that light imparts on cells. Microcurrent is an unsophisticated way of energy exchange and energy exchange dissipates in the form of heat. It works by micro changes and intracellular temperature levels that induce physiological effects.

If you impart electricity to a tissue it will travel preferentially through the path of least resistant. It will find nerves and it will travel through muscle because muscle contracts. It will not travel through skin or fat very well because these tissues are relatively resistant to heat. Muscle contraction and long term facial rejuvenation hasn’t been proven scientifically and the effects don’t last.

Is LED effective skin regeneration?

LED can stimulate the epidermis (the top layer of skin) towards epidermal turnover which can have an effect on smoothness and help to even out skin tone. However, the skin isn’t uniform in terms of its structure to the top layer to the bottom layer. Wrinkle reduction has to be targeted from the bottom layers, and there is no evidence to say what benefits LED is able to effect at the base layers of the skin.

What evidence is there to demonstrate that Laser light is more effective than LED?

There are so much to the properties of light that are just being to be understood, not in terms of what it looks like, or its colour, it’s not about energy density of which that light is absorbed by things around them. It does seem that laser light has peculiar properties like laser speckles that seem to induce these cellular and sub cellular effects in a very particular way that there isn’t really the evidence that back up suggestion that led light does the same.

How do LED devices differ from the LYMA Laser?

LED’s have boomed as they don’t use a lot of energy so are safe to use in the home. However, the most powerful form of controlled light is laser. The difference is the coherent light from the laser is more deeply penetrative and doesn’t lose energy with penetration like non coherent light. This means it’s able to have different physiological effects at a deeper penetration, so you’re still able to induce physiological effects all the way through the dermis as the laser does not loose efficacy as it penetrates through the layers.
