Lustre

Lustre Approved ClinicLustre Pure Light is a breakthrough new light technology developed by dermatologists and health care professionals to treat acne in the comfort of your own home.

Lustre Pure Light harnesses the safe, natural blue part of the visible light spectrum and uses clinically proven technology to eliminate spot-causing bacteria, while also being gentle on skin. It delivers the same amount of safe acne destroying light as would be received on the equator on a bright sunny day. Lustre Pure Light is a small, hands free, rechargeable product with slim flexible therapy heads, which target problem areas.

The device is portable and treatment is delivered while the product is worn, leaving users free to get on with their everyday life. The technology has been clinically proven to eliminate the bacteria that causes spots whilst also being gentle on the skin, offering a completely safe solution for acne patients.

Visible blue light at a wavelength of 420nm does not contain any ultraviolet light (which can damage the skin) but is effective in killing P. acnes, the bacteria which causes 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 active. This active porphyrin has been clinically proven to destroy the bacteria.

One in Five Acne Sufferers Fears Leaving House

UK research reveals two thirds concerned over side effects of acne treatments

Lustre Pure Light ResultsYoung women in their twenties and thirties suffering from acne find it increasingly difficult to deal with the effects of the condition according to a new national survey, which reveals that one in five don’t like leaving the house as a result of having spots.

The new research, which has been undertaken by Ambicare Health, focuses on the growing number of young women between the ages of 20-39 suffering from acne. Over 73 per cent of those asked revealed that their acne makes them feel unattractive with 60 per cent left insecure as a consequence of having bad skin.

With over 80 per cent of the UK population suffering from acne at some point in their lives, there is a common misconception that most people will have the condition in their teens; however, there is an increase in the number of women affected by acne in their twenties and thirties. The research highlights that a significant proportion of these women are professional high earners who feel that spots are affecting their career aspirations.

The psychological impact of acne can be far reaching and today’s findings indicate that many sufferers experience long term negative effects. Over half of respondents stated that bad skin has had an effect on their romantic relationships while one in four reported an impact on their career.

Concerns are growing over the long term risks associated with many systemic treatments and the adverse effects that can occur when the chemicals accumulate in the body over a period of time. Bacterial resistance is also a concern for patients and doctors, which is caused by the overuse of antibiotics. Today’s research confirms this is an issue with over two thirds of UK respondents worried about the risks linked to them.

The findings coincide with the release of a breakthrough acne treatment called Lustre Pure Light which offers a completely safe solution for patients. Developed and tested by leading dermatologists and healthcare professionals specialising in skin conditions, the new light based device has been brought to market by Ambicare and is only available through specialist clinics.

Over two thirds of those taking part in the survey have visited a GP for acne advice with almost 30 per cent revealing that despite having used most acne treatments nothing has worked.

Lustre is a small, rechargeable product with slim, flexible heads which directly targets problem areas. The device is portable and treatment is delivered while the product is worn, giving users the freedom to get on with everyday tasks.
