What is acne?
Acne vulgaris affects up to 80% of the population at some point in their lives, characterized by areas of skin with seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pinheads), pustules (pimples), Nodules (large papules) and possibly scarring. Acne affects mostly the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back. Acne can be inflammatory. The lesions are caused by changes in pilosebaceous units, skin structures consisting of a hair follicle and its associated sebaceous gland, changes that require androgen stimulation.
How does Lustre Pro Light work?
P.acnes, the bacteria which cause acne produce mainly corproporphyrin 3 which has an absorption spectrum peak of 415 nm. Photo irradiation of P.acnes colonies with visible blue light has shown to lead to photoexcitation of endogenous bacterial porphyrins, singlet oxygen production and subsequent bacterial destruction.
