A unique approach to skin care and aging, this two-step routine comes from the makers of the revolutionary LYMA laser. Used together, the highly active serum and cream work synergistically to firm, reduce the look of wrinkles and redness, hydrate, and leave a gorgeous youthful glow. Smooth three pumps of the serum evenly across your face and neck in circular motions, giving your skin up to a minute to absorb it. Next, gently massage in three pumps of the cream, again in circular motions, until a white foam forms; this is a sign that cream is working. As the active ingredients sink into the skin over the next minute, massage the remaining cream and foam into skin (it will disappear). For optimal results, take your time and apply slowly. Repeat twice a day and you’ll start to see results in 30 days. Made with breakthrough technology, the protocol was designed to be used alone or alongside the LYMA Laser (we love to do both).
Note: If you’re using the serum and the cream in the mornings, make sure any sunscreen or makeup you might use doesn’t contain zinc oxide. The active ingredients interact with it to create a yellow color on skin—it’s in no way harmful and can easily be washed off, however. (It happens because zinc can prevent the yellow pigment of a key active ingredient in the serum and cream from absorbing totally.) Products containing titanium dioxide, on the other hand, won’t have this effect and are fine to use.

Hover this sleek, powerful clinic-grade laser over a wrinkle (or any problem area) for three minutes a day to see remarkable change in three months. Most lasers use heat to injure the skin, which then helps stimulate collagen production. But the LYMA works differently: Its near-infrared light penetrates to the skin’s base layer to boost collagen production and prompt cells to produce more protein, which in turn fights free radicals, combating the loss of both collagen and elastin. The light technology also triggers cells’ regenerative power, essentially telling them not to die off. It feels like a barely-warm flutter on skin and requires no downtime, despite the fact that it’s 100 times more powerful than a standard at-home LED treatment. It’s the only 500mW laser cleared by the FDA for at-home use—and works over time to smooth, firm, and brighten skin.
