The Power of Retinol & Topical Light Infusion

Aging has countless benefits, including all the wisdom that comes with it. But for many people, the mature skin that tags along is an unwanted side effect. Skin can lose elasticity and firmness or become dull, highlighting your age. This happens much sooner than some people expect, and it can be an issue for professionals. Fortunately, there are options to combat aging skin.

You’ve likely heard of retinol and all its benefits, including increased collagen production, cell turnover, and revitalized blood vessels. This makes retinol a suitable treatment for various skin concerns, including but not limited to:

  • Aging, dull skill
  • Colorization
  • Oily skin

People of many skin types can benefit from using retinol, and plenty of companies include retinol in their skincare products. However, retinol is another name for Vitamin A, and people who are sensitive to this vitamin should consider starting out with a lower percentage formulation or utilizing encapsulated retinol.

Boost Your Retinol Routine with Light

If you’ve already tried retinol and didn’t see the results you wanted or want to get even more out of your routine, there’s a very effective delivery method you may not have heard of, Topical Light infusion or TLi. Although LED light therapy has been around longer, TLi is fast becoming a very sought after treatment because it combines different colors of light and topical products such as those with retinol to help infuse products deeper into your layers of skin.

Together, TLi and topical retinol products pack a punch that alternative treatments lack. So a method that combines a high dosage of retinol with topical light, such as the TLi Retinol Revitalizing Treatment by ABI Dermaceuticals, can tackle those fine lines and wrinkles that age your face. The result? More even and healthy-looking skin that you might even find boosts your confidence and brightens your outlook.

The TLi Retinol Revitalizing Treatment is administered by a professional. After applying the retinol product, your provider will outfit you with a Lightwave therapeutic mask. Sessions often take between 15 and 30 minutes each, with a few minutes for pre and post-treatment care. Most people find that these treatments don’t cause irritation or redness, which can occur with other retinols and topical exfoliants.

Many clients find sessions to be relaxing, especially when paired with soothing music or incorporated into your self-care routine. However, the real benefit of combining retinol and TLi is to your skin! You’ll appreciate the more youthful appearance and can see results within 72 hours.

Many dermatologists and spas already offer TLi Retinol Revitalizing Treatments, so you can visit lightwavetherapy.com to find one near you or request your provider to add it to their services.

Other Ways to Improve Your Skin with Lightwave Therapy

Not everyone is concerned about revitalizing their skin. If you’re interested in clearing up your skin, improving hydration or the health of your skin, there are other Topical Light infusion treatments to consider that also work in conjunction with the Lightwave system. You can even switch between treatments if your skin concerns change.

If you are a skin care professional and want to offer this service to your clients, contact LIGHTWAVE or ABI Dermaceuticals about carrying their TLi Retinol Revitalizing Treatment or other products, which can help you expand your service menu.

Vitamin C & Your Skin

The pursuit for cleaner and clearer skin has been a constant one in the beauty world. With skincare supplements landing on the market with massive promises to change your complexion, it is no surprise that individuals are looking for more information on what works and what doesn’t. A cursory glance at the popularity of Vitamin C would reveal an almost folktale adoration of the vitamin for skin support and clearer complexion, but how much of this story is true?

Let’s take a closer look at the impact and efficacy of Vitamin C on your skin as well as your beauty routine.

Natural Benefits of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that plays a pivotal role in the health and vitality of your skin. Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is often utilized in its topical form for the purpose of anti-aging benefits. While we can naturally consume Vitamin C through our diet, namely in fruits and vegetables, the right topical supplement can have a huge impact on our overall complexion.

How Does a Vitamin C Topical Work?

Vitamin C is a science-backed ingredient favored by dermatologists the world over. Revered for its effects in helping to slow signs of aging, Vitamin C can also assist in preventing sun damage, supporting the improvement of wrinkles, reducing dark spots, and even eradicating acne.

As an antioxidant, Vitamin C works by targeting harmful toxins, known as free radicals. These free radicals attack your cells and can cause accelerated aging. Free radicals can arise from contact from external sources in the world, such as air pollution, or even internally through the effects of our dieting and stress levels. Common sources of free radicals in daily life can include exhaust from vehicles, sun damage, and exposure to the elements.

When working with Vitamin C, many products in the market are ineffective or cause irritation due to oxidizing. Once Vitamin C oxidizes, it is rendered useless. Which is why ABI Dermaceuticals uses freeze-dried spheres that are not mixed with the activator until you go to use it! This means it will remain at full efficacy at the time of use. Very few products in the market actually have this ability, but we are determined to bring you the best and most effective treatments.

Vitamin C and ABI Dermaceuticals 

To tackle your skincare with vitamin c, consider exploring the world of topicals presented by ABI Dermaceuticals. ABI Dermaceuticals specializes in light-based formulations, typically combining topical applications with light therapy devices like LIGHTWAVE to stimulate changes at the cellular level.

Let’s look at a few different ways that Vitamin C topical products can help you find your way to visibly clear skin and soaring confidence.

Introducing Platinum C

The Platinum C Pro-Collagen Skin Care System was developed as an eight-week course to help reduce skin roughness and wrinkle depth while boosting elasticity and complexion. This Vitamin C system is like no other on the market. Its potent Vitamin C spheres contain almost 80% pure ascorbic acid in a freeze-dried form, allowing it to maintain peak potency during the moment of application. These freeze-dried spheres are combined with a powerful activator which includes key ingredients such as Glutathione, Sepitonic M3, Hyaluronic Acid, and Colostrum.

When topically applied, Platinum C works effortlessly to support several different anti-aging systems including

  • Neutralize Free Radicals – Platinum C works to reduce levels of free radicals while minimizing the impact of environmental wear-and-tear, as well as stress.
  • Stabilize Skin – Platinum C boosts skin regeneration by removing damaged and dead skin cells while speeding up the overall turnover process.
  • Enhanced Moisture Barrier – When used within four to five days of acquisition, Platinum C helps to improve the production of barrier lids while limiting transepidermal water loss, boosting the health of your skin’s moisture barrier along the way.

ABI Dermaceuticals suggests Platinum C as a skincare solution for individuals looking to address skin damage, fine lines, radiance loss, enlarged pores, and even simple wrinkles.

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF): The Next Big Thing in Anti-Aging

An Introduction to Epidermal Growth Factor

These days, it seems that pretty much everyone is pursuing the latest and most promising anti-aging products and therapies, from filler injections to major surgery. However, you can also put your own body’s natural processes to work on the problem — with a little help from a naturally-occurring substance called epidermal growth factor, or EGF.

What EGF Does for the Body

Epidermal growth factor belongs to the larger family of naturally-occurring growth factors produced by the human body. These proteins, also known as cytokines, serve as chemical messengers, influencing cell growth and repair while also regulating the body’s responses to inflammation and pain. The body manufactures many different kinds of cytokines, including lymphokines, monokines, chemokines, and interleukines. EGF focuses on triggering and supporting healthy levels of epidermal skin cell reproduction, affecting cellular growth and behavior by binding to receptors on the cells’ surfaces.

The Key to Younger-Looking Skin?

Until someone invents a way to go back in time, EGF may offer the next-best way to rejuvenate your skin at the cellular level. That’s because topical products containing EGF can help you produce more collagen and elastin, the proteins so essential for giving skin its flexibility, tightness, and springiness. It does this by stimulating the specialized cells (known as fibroblasts) that normally make these proteins. In other words, it gives your skin more of what it needs to become (or remain) firm and youthful looking, instead of wrinkling and sagging, by helping your skin maintain its structural integrity. Regular use of an EGF product can therefore help you banish bags under your eyes, fine lines, and other signs of age.

EGF has other virtues as well. For instance, tts ability to help regulate inflammation and other process can reduce annoying cosmetic issues such as facial redness (a common problem among rosacea sufferers), hyperpigmentation (the result of too much melanin in a particular area of skin), and enlarged pores related sun damage or acne.

How Did EGF as a Skin Treatment Come About?

While we’ve already noted that EGF has always played a role in skin health and elasticity through its natural production by the body, the use of EGF as a skin treatment only got its start in 1986, when EGF’s role in these processes was first identified. A three-month study of women ages 29 to 75 found that EGF can reduce wrinkles, redness, and the effects of sun damage on the skin. Since then, an increasing number of skin care companies have made a point of including EGF and various cytokines in their topical creams and lotions. Some clinics also apply these products in office procedures that include special devices that infuse the EGF right into the skin.

Originally, EGF products always derived their epidermal growth factor from human skin cells. However, today’s world of EGF products often make use of plant-based EGF, which works just as effectively to renew and repair the skin.

Ready to Discover EGF’s Benefits for Yourself?

If you would like to experience EGF’s skin tightening power first hand, check out EGF Rapid Repair Complex, available for direct online purchase at ABI Dermaceuticals. This amazing product stimulates production of three different kinds of collagen. It also contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that helps the skin retain moisture, as well as anti-aging peptides. This potent combination of active ingredients can help you enjoy more a more youthful look in just 90 days. Try it and see for yourself!

How to Revitalize Aging Skin

Wrinkles, sagging skin, and fine lines are all common complaints when it comes to aging skin. If you’re experiencing these signs of aging, however, you don’t have to simply accept them! In fact, there are a number of treatments and other things you can try to revitalize your aging skin and restore its youthful, vibrant appearance.

Consider Lightwave Topical Light Infusion

Topical Light Infusion (TLi) treatments have been taking the skincare world by storm, especially among those who have been experiencing dull and aging skin. Specifically, ABI Dermaceuticals‘ TLi Retinol Revitalizing Treatment is designed to invigorate skin by infusing Vitamin A into the layers of the skin. This, in turn, has been shown to increase cell turnover and assist in collagen production. The end result? A reduction in the appearance of find lines and wrinkles—as well as a more vibrant and youthful complexion.

Understanding Lightwave Topical Light Infusion Treatment

How does our Lightwave TLi work, anyway? First, the skin must be properly cleansed so that all makeup, debris, and dirt is removed. From there, exfoliation using a scrub may be recommended for particularly damaged or dry skin.

Next, protective eyewear is donned and LED red light therapy is administered to the skin for a minimum of 10 minutes. The purpose of this is to increase blood flow to the area, which will optimize the results of the treatment.

From there, the topical serum is applied to the skin and massages around the face, starting with the forehead and working down towards the chin. After 1-2 minutes (to allow the serum to penetrate the skin), the topical cream is applied in the same manner. Finally, protective eyewear is donned once again and a 30-minute light therapy treatment is administered.

How Topical Light Infusion Works

As treated skin is exposed to LED light, the wavelengths from the light help the topicals reach deep into the different layers of the skin. This allows the skin to absorb these ingredients (including Vitamin A), resulting in noticeable results with just one treatment session. Many patients will notice an improvement in overall skin tone and texture, as well as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

Other Tips to Protect Aging Skin

In addition to considering treatments such as ABI’s Lightwave TLi, there are other measures you can take to revitalize and protect aging skin. One of the most important things you can do is to make sure your skin is adequately protected from the sun by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily. Likewise, staying properly hydrated can also keep skin looking its best. As a general rule, you should aim to drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day.

Best Blemish and Oil Control Treatment For Topical Light Infusion!

Person with Acne on Cheek

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 to Use Skin Care Products with Your Light Therapy

image of light therapy

Topical Light Infusion (TLi) is one of the only known light-based infusion systems available on the cosmetic market, today. Designed around light-based facial infusion technology, this cosmetic service is similar yet markedly different from traditional LED light therapy.

A Topical Light Infusion treatment plan is built around the application of specific topicals to the skin. Light is then placed overtop these topicals where they are then activated and infused into the lower layers of skin without ablation or injections.

Topical Light Infusions work by:

  • Formulated Topicals Applied to Treatment Area
  • Topicals Infused into Skin by Pulses of Light
  • Light Activation Allows Optimized Delivery of Topicals
  • Active Ingredients Improve Overall Skin Conditions

Light therapy is often used to treat a wide range of potential conditions, from wrinkles to sagging skin and everything in between. Now light therapy can be combined with Topical Light Infusion for a more complete treatment. These treatments are safe, simple, and easy to understand. Most combined treatments last for just 30 minutes, allowing an additional 20 minutes for pre-and-post care.

ABI Dermaceuticals has produced a line of products meant specifically for use through the Topical Light Infusion methodology. Let’s explore these products to learn how to incorporate them into our own light therapy routines.

This product features papaya and pineapple enzymes that break down keratin found within dead skin cells, removing and dissolving lifeless skin while providing nourishment along the way.

Topical Light Infusion allows for the treatment of many different conditions and skin concerns. From plumping your skin with collagen-boosting masks to fighting signs of premature aging through the TLi Wrinkle Repair Treatmentthis step in the process is based on our skincare goal.
