UNDERSTANDING LUSTRE® CLEARSKIN TECHNOLOGY
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 revolutionized previous LED blue light treatments by making it portable and wearable.
No, the LUSTRE® ClearSkin device does not emit UV rays. It delivers therapeutic, safe and natural blue light at a wavelength of 415 nm. In clinical trials of blue light at 415 nm, there have been no reported incidences of UV skin damage.
The LUSTRE® ClearSkin technology is safe to use for people with ocular photo-sensitivity, as there is no risk of eye injury or otherwise visual discomfort when wearing this light therapy device on the skin.
The device should only be switched on AFTER it has been affixed to the treatment area of skin.
Do Not look directly at the LED light when it is switched on.
Do Not place LUSTRE® ClearSkin device over the eyes, or where the light will shine into the eyes during treatment.
LUSTRE® CLEARSKIN AND YOUR SKIN
A rare pigment darkening can occur immediately after the treatment. It is caused by visible wavelengths i.e. blue light, is temporary and completely harmless. It is commonly seen in darker skin types and usually fades in 48 hours. It is thought to be due to reversible oxidation of existing melanin and is not new melanin (which would last much longer). The bacteria continue to be killed, and the temporary discolouration is nothing to be concerned about.
The LUSTRE® ClearSkin device is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderate acne of the face. The LUSTRE® ClearSkin device emits light in the blue region of the light spectrum.
- The areas in which the LUSTRE® ClearSkin can be used are shown by the blue shaded areas. These areas of the face are the forehead, cheeks and chin areas.
- LUSTRE® ClearSkin should NOT be used on or around the nose.
- The LUSTRE® device is designed with a flexible lip so as to prevent light from shining directly into the eye. However, if you are treating skin close to the eyes and have any concerns, we recommend using the eye protection goggles provided.
Yes, LUSTRE® ClearSkin is suitable for all skin types. However, a small number of people have a skin type which is more sensitive to the normal level of adhesion of the LUSTRESTRIPS.
The best way to check whether your skin is more sensitive is to carry out a short test before your first treatment.
Attach a LUSTRESTRIP to a LUSTRE® ClearSkin device and place on your inner forearm, just below the elbow. The LUSTRE® ClearSkin treatment head should be switched on and left in place for at least 20 minutes before being removed carefully by lifting from one edge.
If there is any discomfort, then we recommend applying a very small amount of moisturising cream to the skin before attaching LUSTRESTRIP next time and this will normally solve the problem. Because of the strength of the adhesive, with 20 mins sessions, temporary marks can occur. These marks are only temporary and will disappear progressively and naturally.
LUSTRE® ClearSkin Technology is a natural therapy and there are no known side effects. However, in some instance, people might be prone to a temporary skin hyperpigmentation. Darker skin types are more prone to hyperpigmentation and occasionally can get hyperpigmentation with this device but it settles spontaneously. The hyperpigmentation is thought to be due to oxidation of existing melanin and not new melanin production. It generally settles within 48 hours.
We recommend that you speak with your healthcare provider or Dermatologist if considering using LUSTRE® ClearSkin.
MY LUSTRE DEVICE AND LUSTRESTRIPS
Yes! You can apply a small amount of non-comedogenic moisturizer 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 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 an electrical equipment.
