Available exclusively at Sarah Akram Skincare, the response to this anti-aging skin treatment has been overwhelmingly positive — let’s just say that the word “amazing” has been used more than once. Our clients have noticed that their skin is glowing and looking healthier than ever.

So what is LightStim and how does it work?

Just like plants, our skin and other body tissues have the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy. While plants can safely absorb light from the sun, the sun emits harmful UV rays that can cause more damage to our skin than good. LightStim uses LED light therapy to deliver just the beneficial rays.


LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which is a tiny computer chip encased in glass. LED is non-invasive, painless, and requires no recovery time. This light is good for all skin types and is engineered to emit a soothing, gentle warmth.

Erase Wrinkles, Naturally
As we age, the volume of collagen and elastin in the skin decreases, allowing lines and wrinkles to form. LightStim uses different wavelengths, or colors, of light to emit UV-free, beneficial light rays, with each LED color of light providing unique therapeutic benefits.


LightStim penetrates the epidermis layer of the skin, stimulating your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin. This increased volume of collagen and elastin plumps up the dermis layer, gradually pushing out lines and wrinkles.

To benefit from LightStim therapy, a client simply rests under the two-panel LED light or the professional-grade handheld device. We offer LightStim therapy as part of an anti-aging facial, or a client can add a 20-minute LightStim session as an enhancement to the end of any service.

Sarah Akram Skincare offers post-care products like the clarifying lotion above to accelerate results and enhance the benefits of LightStim therapy.

    I’ve been seeing Sarah for my skin care for several years and I trust her implicitly. Results from the anti-aging skin treatments she offers, including LightSim, truly are are incredible. I credit her for the compliments I receive on my skin, and I was recently told that my complexion is luminous!
