The Acne bacteria - now known as Cutibacterium Acnes - live on everyone’s skin
Usually causing no problems, for those with Acne the build-up of oil is an ideal environment for the bacteria to multiply. This is accompanied by inflammation which leads to the formation of red, swollen or pus-filled spots.
A bit of blue light basics
Acne naturally produces porphyrins, which make the bacteria visible when we shine a special light called a Woods Light (a longwave UV light).
When porphyrins are exposed to blue light, they break up, releasing singlets of oxygen, which kill the Acnes bacteria.
Specifically, blue light at 415 nm is clinically proven to destroy the bacteria.
Acne begins to clear and continued blue light use can help reduce P. acnes growth and stop new spots from forming.
Understanding how Lustre® ClearSkin works
LUSTRE® ClearSkin emits blue light at a wavelength of 415 nm and does not contain any of the ultraviolet light which can damage skin.
When applied to spots, LUSTRE® ClearSkin promotes a natural photodynamic response and produces PpIX (Protoporphyrin IX), which results in a reduction in the bacteria that cause the spots (C Acne).
Continued use of LUSTRE® ClearSkin Blue Light use can help reduce P. acnes growth and stop new spots from forming. Visible improvements can be seen within weeks.
