Your oil glands naturally produce oil to lubricate your skin and hair. However, if your gland produces too much oil (sebum), it clogs the pore. This allows bacteria, which is naturally found on the skin, to grow. The excess bacteria forms clumps, or pustules, on the skin’s surface -- what we call acne. Acne affects everyone of all ages, races, and skin types.
LightStim is an FDA-cleared technology that uses patented LED light therapy to heal and calm acne breakouts and destroy the bacteria that causes acne. It also restores your skin’s appearance to look clear and healthy, and has no negative side effects. LightStim works on teenagers and adults, and treats mild to moderate acne.
During a LightStim treatment, your face is placed close to a light source that emits both blue and red light. You will feel a soothing, gentle warmth. The blue light destroys the bacteria that causes acne, and the red light increases blood circulation. This combination helps to clear an existing acne breakout and prevents future breakouts.
Your LightStim session will last between 20-30 minutes, during which you will feel no pain or discomfort. You can return to your typical daily activities immediately afterward. Most patients require weekly treatments for several weeks to achieve optimal results, which can last for several months.
RF Microneedling combines standard microneedling with the added benefit of radiofrequency (RF) heat. During microneedling, many tiny needles penetrate the top skin layer, stimulating the production of new collagen. In addition, pulses of radio frequency emitted heat travel down the needles and go deep into the lower layer of skin, stimulating collagen production at an even deeper level.
RF Microneedling is fast and painless, and results in firmer, smoother skin, while also eliminating acne and filling in acne scars. It works on all skin types and skin colors. Anti-Fragility Health Clinic uses the newest, most precise technology on the market, called the Intensif, which uses 3Deep RF technology for faster, smoother treatments.
