The New Tool in the Fight Against Acne

The New Tool in the Fight Against Acne: Lustre Pure Light Pro by Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi

Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi sees patients every day at the London Medical and Aesthetic Clinic, in Harley Street suffering from Acne and the effects it can have on someone’s life.

Acne affects 650 million people globally with one in five women in the UK afraid to leave their house because of the poor state of their skin, yet the condition has always been notoriously difficult to treat.

The ambicare Health team and flipside PR invited members of the press to London’s trendy One Aldwych Hotel to hear about a new tool in the fight against acne: Lustre Pure Light Pro.

Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi says that Lustre Pure Light Pro has been developed to provide an at-home solution to acne with daily use for as little as 20 minutes. The product harnesses the safe, natural part of their visible light spectrum – blue light- using clinically proven technology to eliminate spot-causing bacteria.

Revolutionising acne maintenance, clinical trials with blue light at 415 nm prove acne sufferers can achieve a 60 % improvement in inflammatory acne, and a 50 % improvement in comedone counts after 12 weeks of regular application.

Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi says 'the device is a small rechargeable product with slim, flexible pads that directly target problem areas with no pain or downtime'. Lustre Pure Light pro is portable and the blue light is delivered while the product is worn, giving users the freedom to get on with everyday tasks.

Blue light has been used by leading dermatologists for many years to treat acne. The bacteria that cause acne produce a chemical called porphyrin. When blue light at a specific wavelength is applied to this porphyrin it becomes excited, this active porphyrin has been clinically proven to destroy the acne causing bacteria.

Dr  Ayham Al-Ayoubi: Lustre Pure Light Pro is a light technology to treat spots at home. It has been developed by dermatologists and tested by healthcare professionals specialising in skin conditions. It is exclusively available from specialist clinics.

A video testimonial was also shown from MBE Gold Medallist Paralympian Hanna Cockroft who has struggled with acne since her teens. She tried everything from creams and prescription drugs to face washes and make-up, but Lustre was the first product to improve her skin.

She said ‘Lustre worked and that made me happy. I found it very useful. I could incorporate it with whatever else I was doing. It’s little; I could carry it around, take it hotels and track meets. I live on the track but I’m a girl and I like to look nice, especially when I get to go out and people recognise me. It made me more confident and happy with how I look and my acne has almost completely disappeared’.

The Lustre Pure Light Pro device is available at the London Medical and Aesthetic Clinic, 1 Harley Street
