It’s time to roll out the red carpet as LYMA has *finally* arrived. With a loyal following of A-listers such as Hailey Bieber, Sabrina Carpenter and Sienna Miller (to name a few) raving about LYMA Laser, we caught up with the brand’s founder, Lucy Goff, to uncover how its hero tool is rapidly changing the skin care sphere and if it’s really worth the hype. 

WHAT IS LYMA’S MISSION 

Aptly named after the Ancient Greek word for ‘origin of life’, LYMA is built on the power to change, start again and most importantly, take back control of your complexion. Breaking through barriers and defying restrictions, the brand pushes the boundaries of efficacy in both the beauty and wellness space. “We believe by refusing to accept the limitations of the status quo, we can help people reach their full potential. Be it health, performance, sleep, skin — whatever your need. Along the way, we've shaken up the industry by moving away from unsubstantiated claims and instead, focusing on efficacy and results” explains Lucy. What’s more, science is at the heart of everything the brand does. “We’re dedicated to creating science-backed solutions to age-old problems, through cutting-edge innovation and solid scientific evidence” Lucy adds.  

THE STORY OF LYMA 

“LYMA began after enduring a six-week battle with septicaemia following the birth of my daughter. After being deemed medically well, I was still wholly depleted, taking a cocktail of drugs and desperate to feel like myself again. In an attempt to be proactive about my health, I visited a wellness retreat, which became not only the turning point for my health, but for my life” recalls Lucy. Here she met world-renowned professor in evidence-based nutrition, Paul Clayton. “Paul prescribed me a regimen using peer-reviewed, patented ingredients, dosed at effective levels, with a rigorous sourcing process and formulated for maximum absorption - the same process that is followed for pharmaceutical products. I had nothing to go on but hope. Within weeks, I started to feel like myself again. Within months I felt better than ever. That’s when the idea of LYMA was born… Not from some elaborate business strategy but right then, I knew that like me, there must be other people needlessly suffering and whose lives could be transformed by these evidence-based nutraceuticals. And thus, LYMA became a reality” adds Lucy. Fast-forward to today and the brand not only dreams up supplements, but skin care tools too. Harnessing the power of low-level laser therapy to unlock the secrets of radiant looking skin, its signature laser utilises near-infrared light to enhance your complexion’s elasticity while minimising the appearance of dark circles, dullness, fine lines and more. 

HOW IS LYMA CHANGING THE SKIN CARE TOOL SPACE 

“Simply put, we're revolutionising it” says Lucy. Creating a beauty category of its own, LYMA Laser prides itself on “zero heat, making it the first clinic-grade laser skin care device FDA-cleared for home use. It's this feat of engineering that led to the world's best plastic surgeons, scientists, clinicians and experts saying it's the most significant beauty launch of a generation and the reason Time Magazine named it a world's best invention of 2023.”

SO, WHAT IS LYMA LASER & HOW DOES IT WORK 

Before we get into the nitty gritty of how LYMA’s renowned laser actually works, it’s important to recognise that – according to Lucy – “LYMA Laser and LED are worlds apart”. Why? “Because they are entirely different light sources. Laser light is one continuous, monochromatic beam with the power to travel through dense surfaces, whereas LED is a scattered light source” Lucy differentiates. Breaking it down for us, the founder goes on to explain how: “LYMA Laser contains a 500mw near-infrared low-level laser beam, which is proven to reach the skin's base layers and induce biological change.” What’s more, “unlike traditional ‘hot’ lasers used in clinics which use heat and damage to stimulate collagen, the LYMA Laser employs a near-infrared beam that’s completely cold and therefore a safe option.” Lucy states. A non-invasive, non-ablative at-home device, LYMA Laser low-level laser therapy (otherwise known as LLIT) prevents harm to the dermis and is suitable for skin types all tones. 

THE SCIENCE BEHIND LYMA LASER 

Now we know how LYMA’s signature skin care tool works, it’s time to put on our lab coats and dive deeper into the science behind it, as Lucy explains the technicalities of the device. Notepads at the ready… 

The LYMA Laser transfers light energy into cells, which then converts into chemical energy, powering up the cells once more to regenerate and renew. The technical term for this is Photobiomodulation and is, in essence, the non-thermal energy conversion of a particular type of light energy to promote tissue regeneration and repair. To get hyper-technical, the LYMA Laser is a leading example of epigenetics whereby it activates a genetic switch that turns off skin cells producing nitric oxide and dials up gene expression to increase oxygen production instead. This process fades pigmentation, reduces redness, and calms inflammation, effectively transforming the skin.”
