Lumie Clear is a compact hand-held LED light therapy device clinically proven to treat mild to moderate acne. It combines blue light to attack the bacteria that causes acne with red light that soothes inflammation and heals the skin. It is clean and simple to use. Either hold it next to your skin for 15 minutes of intensive treatment or attach it to the adjustable stand for a longer session on a wider area. Drugs and creams can have unpleasant side effects and with prolonged use become less effective at controlling the condition. Lumie Clear has no side effects at all, is not inconvenient and invasive, and is easy to use. It can also be used safely in conjunction with other treatments. Unlike drugs and creams Lumie Clear is a one-off expense that can actually work out cheaper over time.
Acne often appears to improve after spending time in the sun. Research into the effects of light as a treatment have focused on two parts of the light spectrum: blue light (415nm), which attacks the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria, and red light (660nm), which is known to soothe inflammation and promote healing. Leading dermatologist Dr Tony Chu of Hammersmith Hospital studied these effects on over 100 patients. Those using combination blue-red light therapy saw a real difference after four weeks. At twelve weeks their skin was, on average, 76% less inflamed and 56% clearer. Lumie Clear has been developed with input from Dr Chu's research team.
Treatment times for Lumie Clear depend on your distance from the lights. If you hold Lumie Clear next to your skin, you need only use it 15 minutes per day. To cover a wider area, for example to treat your back and shoulders, you can fix the light head onto its base and shine it on your skin for an hour from the recommended distance. The combination of red and blue light saves you having to undergo two separate treatment sessions.
Lumie Clear features a built-in timer so that you can accurately measure your treatment sessions. The hands-free stand allows you to get on with other things while the light is working on your skin. Goggles are also included, though you'll only need them if the light is shining at your eyes. The light head folds down into the base for compact storage and the whole unit is small enough for you to take it with you when you go away.
Lumie Clear is certified to the Medical Devices Directive EC93/42. As a medical device, it conforms to European manufacturing standards and carries the correct CE mark. All of Lumie's bodyclocks, SAD lights and other light therapy devices have been tested and proven effective through or against relevant clinical trials.

Lumie's lamps are independently tested to confirm they emit an only negligible amount of UV light, much less than normal daylight, which means they are completely safe.
When you invest in an acne light therapy device make sure it comes from a specialist, experienced company.
