How Lustre Works
P. acnes is a bacteria which normally lives on skin. Under certain circumstances, often associated with hormonal, lifestyle or diet changes the sebaceous gland will over produce a natural oil called sebum.
As the sebum and bacteria continue to grow, white blood cells move into the area and begin to ?ght the bacteria, this causes swelling or in?ammation, and a spot forms.
This process will continue until the white blood cells have managed to ?ght the P. acnes infection and the in?ammation stops or until the pore is unblocked and the sebum levels are reduced.
The bacteria that cause acne produce a chemical called porphyrin. When blue light at a speci?c wavelength is applied to this porphyrin it becomes excited. This active porphyrin has been clinically proven to destroy the bacteria.
Lustre Pure Light treatment harnesses the safe, blue part of the natural light spectrum and the technology has been clinically proven to eliminate the bacteria that cause spots while also being gentle on the skin.
Lustre Pure Light emits light at 415 nm and does not contain any ultraviolet light, which can damage skin.
How does blue light kill the bacteria which causes acne?
Many patients and that their skin improves and spots seem better when they have been out in the sunshine. However sunlight also contains ultraviolet (UVA-UVB) light which can damage skin and even cause skin cancer.
Scientists have found that visible blue light at a wavelength of 415 nm does not cause damage to the skin but is effective in killing the bacteria which causes acne.
Blue light has been used by dermatologists for many years to treat mild to moderate acne.
