Acne affects around 80% of young people according to the NHS, but it can go on into later life. Many of the over-the-counter treatments can have side-effects such as burning, redness and drying of the skin and may only work for a limited time. There is an alternative: a safe and gentle light therapy for acne called Lumie Clear. It’s the only light therapy device for acne that offers combined red and blue light therapy. Blue light kills the bacteria that cause acne while red light reduces inflammation and heals the skin. Use Lumie Clear everyday for about 15 minutes and your skin should improve significantly.

Leading dermatologist Dr Tony Chu completed a study using combination blue-red light therapy that involved over 100 patients. They saw a real difference after four weeks and at 12 weeks their skin was, on average, 76% less inflamed and 56% clearer.
Lumie Clear is a clinically proven, safe and non-invasive device for the treatment of mild to moderate acne.

Typical daily treatment time is 15 minutes, and the included timer lets you know when your session is complete. Weighing under 800 grams, and with a compact size and sturdy case, it is easy to pack and take with you. The device comes with a 2 year guarantee and safety goggles.
Developed with leading dermatologists, Lumie Clear is a new treatment for mild to moderate acne and offers an alternative to the side effects and mess of creams and prescriptions.
Using blue and red LEDs, Lumie Clear emits blue light to kill the bacteria that cause acne and red light to soothe inflammation and heal the skin. In clinical trials, this kind of combined blue/red light therapy made a real difference within four weeks and, after 12 weeks, skin was 76% less inflamed and 56% clearer.
Lumie Clear can be used to treat your face or any area affected by acne. Most people hold the light next to their skin for 15 minutes intensive treatment but you can also use it on the adjustable stand for a longer session on a wider area such as your back, chest or shoulders.
The timer will help you stick to recommended treatment times – full details are in the Operating Instructions. Goggles are supplied although you’ll only need them if the light will be shining in your eyes e.g. if you use Lumie Clear at a distance to treat your face.
Like all their products, Lumie Clear is certified to the Medical Device Directive. Some medication can cause the skin to react to light, referred to as photosensitivity. If you’re taking any medication, please check with your doctor before using Lumie Clear.
