A few months back, I started seeing ads on my social media for a new beauty tool, the Lyma at-home laser. Since I have only had the opportunity to see my dermatologist once during quarantine, I have been pretty open minded to any and all at-home treatments I hear about. But when I clicked through to read more about it, I had some concerns.
First, the price is like **wide eyed emoji** — $2,499. Obviously this is out of most people’s price range but hear me out. I started calculating what I’ve spent on dermatology appointments to get treatments, fillers and botox as well as high end skin creams, serums etc. The total was even more shocking than the price of Lyma by far, so I decided to give it a try.
I paid full price for my Lyma device, so this review is not sponsored or influenced in any way.
By the time it arrived at my house, I had a bit of buyers’ remorse, thinking how silly I was to fall for a social media marketing ad. But I thought, ok, you spent all this money, you might as well follow the instructions exactly and see what happens. That was over a month ago and I honestly didn’t expect to see results too quickly — most of these beauty devices require months of consistent use to notice any changes.
So what happened? Within about 10 days of daily use, for 15 minutes per night and focused on one section per day (eyes one night, lower face and jaw the next, neck and chest the next, etc) I started to see some pretty noticeable results. Like, kind of shocking results. Fine lines diminished, skin appeared tighter, and spots from sun damage started to fade. Even my usually oblivious hubby looked at me one night and said, “Whatever you’re doing different with your skin, it looks amazing.”
How does it work? Previously available at-home lasers only had 5-20 milliwatts of strength, but Lyma has a 500 milliwatt laser inside. They’ve basically figured out how to diffuse the laser safely so we don’t blind ourselves or burn our skin. And because the Lyma doesn’t use heat or stress damage like most other laser treatments, it’s safe for all skin tones, even those with a lot of melanin.
I was so impressed with this product that I went back to the Lyma website and ordered their expensive supplements as well. The journey with the supplements is still new for me so the jury is still out, but I have had zero side effects when many other supplements give me tummy issues. I love the fancy container the pills come in and they smell and taste pleasant. I’m hopeful they will deliver as well as the laser did for me.
