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 ClearSkin Technology has revolutionised the technology previously used, by leading dermatologists, to make it portable and wearable. LUSTRE ClearSkin is the highly advanced 3rd Generation device for delivering blue-light therapy.
No, LUSTRE ClearSkin 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.
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.
Please consult your healthcare provider before using LUSTRE if you have been prescribed any medication for Acne. You can contact our partner GP, Dr Sam Robson at Temple Clinic for advice using this form.

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.
After each treatment session the LUSTRE adhesive strip should be removed and discarded. The LUSTRE therapy head should be cleaned using a moist cloth or cleansing wipe, a moist alcohol swab may also be used. Liquid of any description should not be allowed to enter the Lustre therapy heads or LUSTRE controller at any time. Do not use or attach your LUSTRE ClearSkin device to the main power supply if it has ever been exposed to liquid at any time as it is electrical equipment.
