LightStim in Orange County, California



Total Dermatology is the place to get laser and light therapy in Irvine, CA. More than 40 years ago, Total Dermatology founder and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Nissan Pilest made it his mission to build a forward-thinking dermatology practice; a practice that offered patients the most advanced and effective skin treatments. Dr. Pilest loves that LightStim can treat everything from muscle pain to wrinkles to acne with its powerful light wave technology. We strive to deliver the best LightStim Irvine has to offer. Learn what this versatile light therapy treatment can do for you with a consultation for LIghtStim in Irvine at Total Dermatology.

What is LightStim?

LightStim is a multi-wavelength light therapy system that delivers stimulating light at specific wavelengths to treat various skin issues and ailments. Depending on the type of treatment, LightStim delivers a range of light across the spectrum, from red light to blue light to deep and infrared light. This functionality allows the skilled dermatologists and medically-trained light therapy aestheticians at Total Dermatology to develop personalized light therapy treatment plans for each patient’s needs.

What are the benefits of LightStim?

The main benefits of LightStim can be broken down into three categories: Acne, Pain, and Anti-Aging.


The professional-grade LightStim devices at Total Dermatology deliver powerful beams of light into the skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles to fade over time.


LightStim’s bacteria-killing light waves target the bacteria that causes breakouts in clogged pores. By killing the bacteria on the surface of the skin while soothing and healing the skin, LightStim can help reduce the severity of breakouts and fight the onset of new ones.


LightStim uses light red, dark red, infrared and deep infrared lightwaves to increase blood flow in areas experiencing muscle pain. Stimulating blood flow to sore muscles delivers more of the healing properties they need to recover faster.

When you come to Total Dermatology for your consultation, ask Dr. Pilest about how LightStim's versatile treatments can best benefit you.



Am I a good candidate for LightStim?

The professional-grade light treatments offered at Total Dermatology are powerful, but safe on all skin types. Because LightStim is so versatile, Dr. Pilest can configure the procedure to work for just about anyone. In some cases, LightStim may not be an appropriate treatment for patients with photosensitive skin conditions. Dr. Pilest will review our Irvine LightStim patients medical history before use to make sure there are no issues with using this treatment.

Your LightStim Procedure

LightStim is fast, painless, and simple. Based on your desired treatment, our highly trained light technician will adjust LightStim to its appropriate treatment settings and administer your light therapy for about 20 minutes in the desired area. After that, you are free to resume your day, warmed and refreshed!

LightStim Recovery

LightStim is non-invasive and requires no recovery time. You will feel a gentle warmth during your treatment and once you’re done, you are free to go about your normal routine. If you plan to spend time outdoors, be sure to use sun protection. Otherwise, there are no limitations following treatment.

LightStim Results

Pain relief patients should notice results almost immediately, as warmth and blood flow increases, it will begin soothing aching muscles. Acne treatments should see results in two to four weeks. LightStim anti-aging results will begin to be visible within four months as collagen production begins to show.
