THE BEAUTY TRUTH.

LYMA's global network of scientists reveal the truth behind the beauty industry's curtain.

THE ISSUE AT HAND.

There has been a paradigm shift in skin rejuvenation over the last few years; a trend that will no doubt be accelerated by recent events. Where formerly skin rejuvenation was an acquisition, now it is part of a holistic wellness regime that begins and ends in the home. The goals, too, have changed. Where formerly it was accepted that home-based skin care regimes managed the inevitable age-related decline in tone, texture and clarity, now the more ambitious goal is to reverse the signs of aging.

In this context, clinic-based therapies and even aesthetic surgery have become adjuncts rather than the principal or only means by which skin rejuvenation can be acquired. As people are taking ever greater responsibility for the rejuvenation of their own skin, so this necessitates a drive to develop better products for use at home. The challenge is that these products must not only be effective, but they must avoid pain and significant downtime.

The traditional paradigm of skin rejuvenation works by a controlled chemical or thermal injury which initiates a wound healing cascade. This is often best reserved for controlled, clinical environments. Empowering the individual requires us to find ways to circumvent these problems while offering something that is both safe and efficacious.

Limitations of ‘at home’ LED devices.

A large number of products have been developed in the last decade offering a safe and efficacious means of rejuvenating the skin and reversing the signs of aging.

At the forefront of this innovation drive is LED-based low level light therapy. The theoretical basis of this therapeutic option is evidence that the absorption of light at the red and near infrared end of the spectrum induces a cascade of beneficial events within the cells of the skin that induces tissue regeneration without the need for tissue injury. This is known as photobiomodulation. At a basic level, micro current treatments are a less precise and selective means of achieving the same thing.

Red and near infrared light also exhibit the potential to stimulate hair follicles and improve blood flow. By contrast, blue light promotes the formation of chemical compounds within the oil-producing sebaceous glands that actually kill the bacteria associated with spots, blemishes and acne.

However, there are a number of crucial differences between the type of light produced by LED and that produced by lasers. LED light does not penetrate skin in the way that laser light does. One of the theoretical limitations of LED-based skin rejuvenation is that the light may not reach to the depth required to rejuvenate the deeper part of the skin in the way that a laser alternative can.

LED can stimulate the epidermis 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.

THE POTENTIAL OF MICROCURRENT DEVICES.

To a certain extent, micro current electric machines 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. It’s a crude way of energy exchange and energy exchange dissipates in the form of heat. So, 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 has to do with long term facial rejuvenation hasn’t been proven scientifically and the effects don’t last.

Why laser light is the gold standard.

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.

Laser light remains the gold standard means of achieving photobiomodulation. It is precise, deeply penetrant and selectively induces cells to undertake the process of tissue rejuvenation.

How the LYMA Laser’s technology constitutes a new category of at home skin rejuvenation.

Photobiomodulation is now a well-established goal of low level light therapy with a firm scientific basis. LEDs have become the typical source of light for photobiomodulation because of the commercial advantages of developing LED-based light sources for use at home. They are relatively cheap, cover large surface areas and are, on the whole, unregulated. Laser light, the theoretical gold standard in photobiomodulation, has not been developed along the same commercial template due to the perceived challenges of developing a safe laser for home use within the required regulatory framework.

A safe red/near infrared laser for home use photobiomodulation offers a completely novel paradigm in the growing field of at-home skincare. The precise, targeted, non-destructive induction of tissue regeneration from the surface of the skin to the tissues underneath the skin is not available at present using any alternative method for use at home. Moreover, as light of different wavelengths induces different tissue responses, combining a red/near infrared laser with a blue LED, thereby also targeting the relatively superficial sebaceous glands, offers a powerful combination of light based therapies. This option has the potential to completely recalibrate our expectations of what can be achieved at home.
