LUSTRE® Skin was created in 2004, under the name of Ambicare Health. We were born of a spin-out of the University of St Andrews and the Ninewells Hospital and Medical School, benefiting from a strong medical and science background. Our 1st product launched was called Ambulight and used breakthrough technology based on LED therapy for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer in hospitals.
Bringing dermatology expertise at home to solve acne with Dermatologists.
Realising the potential of LED therapy on different skin conditions and how it could be life changing for many people, 2011 saw the launch of a blue light LED device name LUSTRE® Pro to treat acne. With 80% of us being affected by acne at some point in our life, and solutions/treatments that either do not work or have side effects, it became obvious LED therapy could be the ideal solution for many of us to try and regain control of our skin in a natural way.
Based on blue light therapy at a wavelength of 415nm the initial LUSTRE® Pro consisted of 3 pods with a remote control and offered a very targeted treatment for mild to moderate acne. Studies and Research proved this treatment was very effective and with very little to no side effects. As a result, many GPs and dermatologists in the UK , started to use light therapy successfully with their patients. They recommended it for use as an add on to treatment in clinics and soon also saw the potential to recommend the product for use by their patients in their own home to clear and prevent new breakouts. In 2013, LUSTRE® Pro received the gold award for Best product Innovation from Cosmetic News Awards.
Improving the product experience.
Knowing we had a ground-breaking clinically proven technology that works, we started to focus on improving the product experience. Based on your feedback, we quickly noticed convenience and time were 2 critical factors. We therefore set out to launch the 1st wireless LED device to treat acne on the market and to halve daily treatment time from 40 min to 20 min. And so in 2019, was born LUSTRE® ClearSkin Solo. Safe, Effective, Smart. Since then, this little miracle has gained popularity and has begun to be sold in the UK, the US, and Europe with consistently positive customer feedback.
It has won the ELLE Future of Beauty award in 2021.
Becoming Skin Transforming Light Experts.
Energise by this success, we set out to focus on offering high quality effective LED devices for home use based on delivering better consumer experience and helping to solve other skin conditions. As a result, this year we have launched 4 new products.
Two LED masks LUSTRE®ClearSkin RENEW and LUSTRE®ClearSkin REVIVE as well as a set of skincare products enhancing LED light therapy results, LUSTRELAB® Purifying Cleanser and Serum. Check them out here.

See who they are and why they have decided to use and recommend LUSTRE® Clearskin to their patients.
DR SAM ROBSON
Over the course of her 28 years of practice, first as a General Practitioner (GP), Dr Robson has become progressively aware of the need to integrate the physical, psychological and social aspects of patient care. This view has been reinforced by her qualifying in 2020 as a Lifestyle Medicine Physician, and lifestyle factors influence her view of many medical conditions. When considering problem skin, for example, the interactive effects of diet, exercise, stress, and social factors are at the forefront of her holistic approach.
“When Ambicare invited me to collaborate with them I was very pleased. I have had considerable personal experience of using their LUSTRE® Solo and Trio devices within my clinic with significant success. I very much believe that Light therapy can revolutionise problem skin treatments and an holistic approach should be the cornerstone of any management plan.”
DR. KAVERI KARHADE
“Blue light is an anti-acne technology that has been used by dermatologists worldwide for decades. As a dermatologist who recommends blue light regularly to her patients, I'm excited about LUSTRE® ClearSkin SOLO because it is a game-changing technology to bring effective and safe blue light treatment to acne patients in a more accessible way. Blue light has been shown to exhibit antimicrobial effect which can help to improve acne, however historically this treatment has required cumbersome visits to the doctor's office for a lengthy procedure. This revolutionary at-home device delivers blue light easily on the go with minimal to no side effects. It is a way to help decrease acne-causing bacteria without contributing to antibiotic resistance, while allowing a patient to live his or her best busy life. Physicians like myself are always looking for the best for their patients, and I can't wait to see many of my acne patients improve their skin with this product.”
DR GALYNA SELEZNEVA
“As an aesthetic doctor, I am passionate about incorporating technology into my practice. I have not only been using the LUSTRE® Blue Light Technology myself but I have been recommending it to my patients with confidence. LUSTRE® stands out from the crowd in the world of phototherapy with its advanced technology that’s fundamentally based on clinical research and supported by a great body of case studies. Its hands-free design is proof that the technology was designed with the end user in mind.”
DR JOHANNA WARD
“After I have done some clinic treatments, I often recommend that my patients continue with Blue Light at home. LUSTRE is a make of a Blue Light brand, which is really great. The devices deliver the Blue Light in a very easy and flexible treatment modality. They can be used hands-free at home so it's very easy to give yourself a targeted Blue Light Treatment for problem areas and continue some of the good work that we can do in the clinic as well."
"When Ambicare Health approached me to collaborate with them I was extremely pleased. We had previously worked together in the past. The home based Lustre light was able support our in-clinic patients acne treatment, and able to sustain their skin benefits and maintenance at home . My patients found it easy to use and this was supported by the ongoing success at managing their acne. I also use Lustre Light and have first -hand experience of its benefits." During the summer months working in a face mask continually, caused a flare-up of Maskne. Using Lustre Trio quickly enabled me to get my spots under control. It’s a fabulous, easy to use effective tool for acne treatment."
