Take Lumie’s See the Difference’ challenge and inspire others with your new-look skin.

Tried every lotion, potion and antibiotic available to get rid of your acne? Light therapy could be the answer. Lumie Clear is a hand-held home light therapy treatment which enables acne sufferers to enjoy the benefits that were previously only available from specialist dermatologists and spas in the privacy of their own home.

Although acne is traditionally considered to be a teenage problem it actually affects people of all ages and, for example, is not uncommon amongst women in their 40s. When Lumie Clear is used every day there is normally a noticeable difference in just a few weeks and for extra motivation you can now take part in Lumie’s 12-week See the Difference’ challenge and share your experience with others.

Light therapy is clinically proven to be a safe, effective treatment for acne. Research by dermatologists at Hammersmith Hospital has shown that blue light kills the bacteria that cause acne and red light sooths the skin. People with mild to moderate acne reporting a 76% improvement in their skin within 12 weeks with none of the side-effects of harsh creams or antibiotics.

Lumie Clear was developed following this research and it is the only home light therapy treatment to have a light range specifically set at 415 nm for the blue light combined with 660 nm for the red light which, according to research, optimises its beneficial impact. It can be hand-held or placed on its adjustable stand for hands-free treatment and, when used regularly for a few minutes each day, offers a noticeable and lasting improvement within 4 – 6 weeks.

Dr Rakesh Patalay, consultant dermatologist, says: Acne is not just a teenage condition. We are seeing increasing numbers of older people with the condition and persistent acne can have a large impact on your quality of life. Lumie Clear can be used by anyone without prescription and is complementary to other treatments.”

Light therapy has been shown to be more effective than Benzoyl Peroxide and does not have the side-effects often associated with acne treatments such as burning, redness, drying, stinging or contribute to antibiotic resistance.

Anyone buying a Lumie Clear between now and Christmas can take part in Lumie’s See the Difference’ challenge, which involves posting a selfie’ and comment on Lumie’s Clear Skin website/Facebook page every week over a 12 week period. One of the first people to take up the challenge, Daisy, has already reported a marked difference in her skin in just four weeks – see for yourself at: www​.lumieclearskin​.co​.uk
