How to Treat Acne at Home with Light Therapy

Light therapy has been used in dermatology clinics for years to help treat acne, and now you can get the benefits of LED light treatment at home. Using both blue and red LEDs, Lumie Clear is a portable light therapy device that offers a natural way to relieve mild-moderate acne.

Offering a targeted light-therapy treatment, Lumie Clear can be used to treat your face or any area affected by acne. The blue LEDs kill acne-causing bacteria while the red LEDs help soothe inflammation and heal the skin.

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, targeting a wider area such as your back, chest or shoulders.

What are the benefits of using LED light therapy to treat acne?

- Non-thermal and not painful

I would highly recommend this device 5/5.Michelle Wall, Liverpool

I have used my Lumie Clear for 12 months now and am still very impressed with my results.

My GP was not very concerned when my skin was rapidly worsening over 4 weeks and gave me antibiotic after antibiotic (all useless) before agreeing to refer me for a second course of roaccutane. I had previously had great success with the drug 5 years earlier but had to finish early due to sudden onset depression symptoms.

After my fantastic results last summer I continue to use Lumie Clear about once or twice a month for hormonal spots but I have had no recurrence of the cystic acne.

I highly recommend this to device to anyone suffering with any form of acne, I only wish I had used the Lumie clear from the initial breakout as it would have prevented my scarring which remains fairly obvious.

Amazing product- recommended to all with acne! 5/5.Frankie, Devon

I have had my Lumie Clear for around 5 months, and my skin has never looked better! I had a nasty re-occurring patch of outbreak on cheek- mainly because there was a lot of open, deep pores. The Lumie Clear has completely cleared this up and the pores appear smaller! I use it on the patch for 30 minutes per day- easily done if you have a plug next to your bed with a TV just sit and relax!

I would really recommend all those who suffer from mild to severe acne to try this. I have had acne for 11 yrs since 13 yrs of age! it is fairly time consuming, and a bit embarrassing if your dating someone new, as they think its some kind of alien device! but if they like you, they won't care!

It’s not an expensive product- if you are serious about clearing up your acne, save and buy it! It does work!

Surprisingly good! 5/5.Sandy, Edinburgh

I turned to Lumie Clear light in desperation and I'm so glad I did. It's worth it! 

A bit of background - I've basically had moderate acne for nearly 30 years but it's been controlled over most of that time by various medicines. A few years ago it got worse (which seems to be fairly common in women in their 40's) and nothing I tried, up to and including Roaccutane, worked for longer than a few months.

The light hasn't completely cured the spots, but I get far less and when they do come they're more like pimples rather than the cystic acne I had before.

You really have to stick to a routine with it, but I'd definitely recommend it. Wish I'd tried it years ago!

Plus the customer service has been great!
