After years of anticipation and a 10,000-person waiting list, LYMA Laser, the world’s first at-home device featuring medical-grade laser technology, finally received FDA approval and launched in the U.S. on May 16.
While beauty tech has boomed in recent years, especially with consumers wanting to take even more control over their skincare and wellness regimens, LYMA has established itself as an industry trailblazer by building its reputation the old-fashioned way: upon science and data.
Because unlike many of her peers – who seem to add more noise to an already crowded and confusing space – LYMA founder Lucy Goff spent years developing and fine-tuning the tool and its technology. “The original version of the LYMA Laser’s technology was a gigantic floor-standing machine,” explains Goff. “Over 120 iterations later, we got it down to a portable, painless, and yet incredibly powerful little device.”
The clinic-grade skincare laser works by harnessing the transformative power of a traditional laser, but with zero heat, which can trigger inflammation and hyperpigmentation. Because it’s completely “cold,” it’s safe and effective for all skin types and tones. And in stark contrast to microcurrent and LED gadgets that have flooded the market and only have surface effects, LYMA Laser features low-level laser therapy (LLLT). Goff explains, “This deeply penetrates the skin, and heats up cells by a miniscule 100th of a degree: the exact temperature to trigger a genetic switch to switch off the cells associated with aging, and switch on the ones associated with renewal.” In short: LYMA Laser is the most powerful skincare device you can buy to visibly, effectively, and safely rejuvenate your complexion.
Even renowned celebrity skincare expert and aesthetician Joanna Czech, who’s been in the industry for over 35 years and has always been skeptical of lasers – “I’ve seen first-hand the destruction hot lasers can cause” – endorses LMYA. Czech incorporates LYMA Laser in her signature facials, using two of them for ten minutes to massage and sculpt the face after cleansing and exfoliation. She comments, “I never thought that I would be using and supporting lasers, but LYMA really is a game changer.”
And as you’d expect: everything that makes LYMA Laser such a powerful device for at-home and in-clinic use makes it equally effective while you’re traveling. For starters, it’s perfectly portable. The tool is lightweight, fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, and “practically designed for flying,” says Czech, who recommends packing it on your trips with The Joanna Czech Kit, a TSA-friendly pouch with her seven skincare essentials.
When fully charged, LYMA Laser’s battery lasts two hours to ensure plenty of sessions while you’re on the road. And if time is of the essence, Goff says that 15 minutes is “plenty of time to cover your entire face.” If you don’t have 15 minutes to spare, you can still enjoy LYMA Laser’s benefits by spot-treating problematic areas, like 11 lines and crow’s feet, for about three minutes. As Goff puts it: “No matter how long you have, the laser always has a positive effect. Consistent use will see marked differences in weeks, depending on the concern.”
