Light Therapy for Acne

Many patients find that their skin improves and their spots seem better when they have been out in the sunshine*.

However sunlight also contains ultraviolet (UVA-UVB) light which can damage skin and even cause skin cancer.

Scientists have found that visible blue light at a wavelength of 415 nm does not cause damage to the skin but is effective in killing P. acnes, the bacteria which cause acne.

Blue light has been used by dermatologists for many years to treat acne.

How does blue light kill the bacteria which cause acne?

The bacteria that cause acne produce a chemical called porphyrin. When blue light at a specific wavelength is applied to this porphyrin it becomes excited, this active porphyrin has been clinically proven to destroy the bacteria.

LUSTRE Pure Light Solo treatment harnesses the safe, blue part of the natural visible light spectrum and the technology has been clinically proven to eliminate the bacteria that cause spots whilst also being gentle on the skin.

LUSTRE Pure Light emits light at 415 nm and does not contain any of the ultraviolet light which can damage skin.

What is acne?

“Nothing seems to work for acne – that is, until now.”

Around 80% of people suffer from acne at some point in their lives, with many experiencing problems beyond their teenage years, and into their 20s and 30s. The video on the “How LUSTRE works” page explains how the breakthrough treatment harnesses the safe, blue part of the natural visible light spectrum to eliminate the bacteria that cause spots.
