Light Therapy for Acne

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

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 420 nm does not cause damage to the skin but is effective in killing P. acnes, the bacteria which causes 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 treatment harnesses the safe, blue part of the natural light spectrum and the technology has been clinically proven to eliminate the bacteria that cause spots while also being gentle on the skin.

Lustre Pure Light emits light at 420nm and does not contain any of the ultraviolet light, which can damage skin.

How Lustre Pure Light works – the science

Step 1

Scientists have discovered that the spot causing bacteria, P. acnes produce a normally harmless chemical called Porphyrin.
Clinical trials have proven that when safe natural visible blue light at 420 nm is shone onto the skin there is no harm to the skin itself, but the Porphyrins produced by the spot causing bacteria become excited.

Step 2

When Porphyrins become excited they attach to the spot causing bacteria and begin to destroy it.

Step 3

When the spot causing bacteria P. acnes has been destroyed acne begins to clear and continued blue light use can help reduce P. acnes growth and stop new spots forming.
