Product Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I buy LUSTRE Pure Light technology?

LUSTRE Pure Light Solo is available to buy on this website. It’s also available via Amazon and CurrentBody.com.

How can the stickiness of the adhesive LUSTRESTRIPS be reduced?

There is one recommended method for reducing the adhesion of the strips.

A small amount of moisturising cream such as E45 should be applied directly to the skin immediately before application of the adhesive strips. The exact amount of cream required is dependent upon the need to reduce the adhesion. In ALL cases the white cream should NOT be visible on the skin when the strip is applied to the skin. If cream is visible then the light will not be able to reach the skin and perform an effective treatment.

Can LUSTRE be used on other parts of the body, i.e the back and chest?

Yes – you can use LUSTRE Solo on any part of the body affected by acne.

Technology Frequently Asked Questions

What is blue light therapy?

Blue light therapy is the use of natural blue light from the visible light spectrum for a medical or therapeutic benefit. It has been used to treat acne for almost 40 years. LUSTRE Pure Light Technology has revolutionised the technology previously used, by leading dermatologists, to make it portable and wearable. LUSTRE Pure Light is the highly advanced 3rd Generation device for delivering blue-light therapy.

Will LUSTRE Pure Light Technology cause any UV damage to my skin?

No, LUSTRE Pure Light Technology delivers therapeutic safe natural blue light at a wavelength of 415 nm. This is not in the UV spectrum of the natural light wavelength. In clinical trials of blue light at 415 nm, there have been no reported incidences of UV skin damage.

How do I prepare my skin before treatment?

Before using LUSTRE Pure Light ensure skin is clean and dry and that all make-up is removed.

Wash skin with normal cleanser or with a mild soap and warm water. Ensure skin is dry after cleansing and before using the LUSTRE Pure Light.

If other topical treatments for acne are being used these should be applied following the LUSTRE Pure Light treatment session.

I have sensitive skin, can I use LUSTRE Pure Light?

Do you consider that you have sensitive or delicate skin?

Do you bruise easily?

If you answer yes to one or both of the above questions then a test of the adhesion can be made by applying a strip to your inner forearm, just before the elbow. The strip should be left in place for at least 10 minutes before being removed. If there is any pigmentation or redness exhibited then a small amount of E45 moisturising cream should be applied directly to the skin immediately before application of the adhesive strips. The exact amount of cream required is dependent upon the need to reduce the adhesion. In ALL cases the white cream should NOT be visible on the skin when the strips is applied to the skin. If cream is visible then the light will not be able to reach the skin and perform an effective treatment.
