The world of beauty and wellness has experienced major evolution and innovation in recent years. The introduction of revolutionary processes such as Topical Light infusion (TLi) has helped to bridge the gap between our patient’s cosmetic goals and our ability to consistently achieve those goals and desired results. With new skincare protocols on the horizon, now is a fantastic time to become familiar with these trending skincare solutions.

Here at Lightwave Therapy, we believe in not just the power of Topical Light Infusion as a therapeutic process, but also in the power, confidence and strength that this cutting edge skincare routine can offer our clientele.

What IS Topical Light Infusion?

Topical Light Infusion (TLi) is where LED light therapy and skin infusion topicals blend together to provide benefits to our skin. Our goal at Lightwave Therapy  is to combine our award-winning ABI skincare topical products with our Lightwave LED Therapy to provide actionable results that beauty enthusiasts can enjoy. The process is not just safe and simple, it is easy as well!

In this article, we hope to educate prospective clients as to what they can expect from a TLi Blemish and Oil Control treatment.

TLi Blemish and Oil Control Mask

Struggling with congested or oily skin can lead to breakouts, blackheads, and inflammation. When our skincare routine feels like it is failing us, we can get back in control with the ABI Dermaceuticals TLi Blemish and Oil Control Treatment. This multi-step process incorporates Lightwave Therapy in conjunction with popular ABI topicals.

Let’s break down the TLi Blemish and Oil Control Treatment into four simple steps.

  1. Prepare Your Skin— When we utilize the TLi Blemish and Oil Control mask, we advise to first prep the skin. This is a simple task accomplished with the ABI Corrective Wash, formulated to gently cleanse without stripping the skin of natural oils. This will ensure all excess oil, make-up, dirt, and debris has been removed.
  2. Apply Blemish and Oil Mask — Once we have prepared the skin with the ABI Corrective Wash, we can begin applying the Blemish and Oil Mask. Applied through a syringe, the mask can be brushed on or applied with your fingers. A thin layer should begin at your forehead before working its way down, covering your entire targeted area until the mask syringe is empty.
  3. Lightwave Therapy LED— At this point, it is time to place the Lightwave Therapy LED panel directly overtop the targeted face + neck areas. The LED lights will activate the TLi treatment, remaining lit for 20 minutes as the mask embarks upon its process.
  4. Post Care Treatment— After the light has shut off, it is time to cleanse the skin of the remaining mask. Use our ABI Corrective Mist to remove the final traces of the mask. Next, apply a dime size amount of the ABI Treatment Gel to any active blemishes. Allow the product to penetrate.  Apply ABI’s Oil-Free Moisturizer to the entire treatment area to help protect the skin’s natural moisture factor.  Finally, always finish a treatment with ABI’s SHADE SPF 28 Sunscreen.

Key Advantages: Reduce Inflammation, Reduce Excess Oil, Target Skin Blemishes, Detoxify.

We have designed our TLi Blemish and Oil Control Mask to work as both a single-use treatment and as part of a well-rounded routine. Traditionally, we advocate for our clients to begin with just two Blemish and Oil Treatments in their first week before changing to a single mask every two months while symptoms persist.

How Can Glycolic Acid Benefit Your Skin?

If you’ve ever looked at the ingredients list on skin care products, you’ve likely noticed an ingredient called glycolic acid. This element is extremely beneficial for the skin, which is why you’ll see it on most lists, especially on anti-aging products. Derived from sugar cane, don’t let the intimidating acid name scare you away from particular products. It is a natural ingredient that is good for your skin and absorbs easily because of its small size.

Perfect for Acne-Prone Skin

If you’re prone to acne, you want a product that contains glycolic acid. Acne is produced due to the oil and trapped dead cells in the pores of your skin and exhibits itself in a variety of ways, from blackheads to larger cysts. When you use a product that includes this ingredient, it gets deep into the pores down to the hair follicles to loosen up sebum and proteins that often get trapped in the pores, reducing acne occurrences.

Anti-Aging Benefits

Perhaps the most common types of skin care products to use glycolic acid are anti-aging products. The same dead skin cells and other issues that cause acne can contribute to dull skin and make you look older. This isn’t as noticeable in children and teenagers because the cell turnover rate is much higher, but as you go through adulthood, the effects are more prominent. Glycolic acid not only smooths the skin as it works, but it also gets rid of the dead skin cells that store discolorations from acne, sun damage, and more. It also stimulates collagen production, which contributes to the elasticity of the skin and keeps it tighter to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles often associated with aging skin.

Improve the Skin’s Absorption Rate

Another primary benefit of using glycolic acid in skin care products is its ability to improve the absorption rate of the other ingredients found in the product. Because this ingredient opens up the pores, larger molecules that make up the other essential ingredients in your skin products will be able to easily enter the skin and do their job as well. This includes antioxidants, retinol and other essential minerals your skin needs. In addition, you will find it easier to apply your makeup and achieve the look you want.

Pay Attention to Amounts

The amount of glycolic acid in a given product is an important factor to consider. In general, skin care products typically use between seven and 30 percent glycolic acid to ensure the maximum effect without overdoing it. Face washes and creams for daily use often contain a lower amount, while face masks and other products designed for more intense use, fall on the higher end of the spectrum for a more concentrated effect. It is also important to look for lower pH numbers in the glycolic acid. A more acidic ingredient will have better results. A perfect example is our Corrective Pads with Glycolic Acid which are designed to resurface and alleviate congested skin. They will also help reduce sebum in oily skin conditions. This unique formula of glycolic acid, combined with willow bark, will gently exfoliate dead skin cells, keeping skin feeling smooth and providing a more even skin tone.

Is It Safe?

If someone offered you an acid product to use on your skin, one of your most vulnerable and sensitive organs, you would likely hesitate. However, glycolic acid is perfectly safe for use, especially when dealing with products marketed for at-home use. However, those who spend a lot of time in the sun should be wary of using these products as they can make your skin more vulnerable to the effects of the sun, particularly immediately following use. Try the Sensible Sunscreen SHADE with SPF 28 which provides superior sun protection without causing congestion or irritating sensitive skin. This gentle, fragrance free formula physically blocks the suns damaging rays and provides instant broad spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB exposure. This fast absorbing, non-greasy lotion is ideal for oily, sensitive, and acne prone skin.
