In 2000, a research study conducted by Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine at Hammersmith Hospital in London concluded: "We have found that phototherapy with mixed blue-red light, probably by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions, is an effective means of treating acne vulgaris of mild to moderate severity, with no significant short-term adverse effects." Many other tests have followed suit. Above and beyond everything we state here, the single most important fact is what we hear over and over again from our customers, and that is, "IT WORKS!"
Teenagers and Spots
If you're a teenager, theres a pretty good chance you have some spots. In fact 8 out of 10 teenagers today suffer from spots, so dont feel alone. If spots are not treated correctly it can be tough on one's self-esteem. Successful treatment is based on a good skin care regimen, visits to a dermatologist or a qualified esthetician and regular use of your Acu-clear.
The key is... Use the Light. If you use it, it works. Make it a part of your teenagers daily lifestyle!
If you are using a thyroid medication or have a thyroid condition, do not use the Acu-clear over the thyroid gland.
How LED light therapy works LED Light Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light which give off energy that are used in many applications. This is known as Photo Therapy. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Diodes give off energy in the form of light. These little diodes are compact, durable, powerful, bright, efficient, and are used to kill the bacteria that cause spots.
Acu-clear works by LED blue light therapy which helps to kill the bacteria that cause spots, reduce inflammation and provide a general rejuvenation effect on the skin. Spots begin when the pores become clogged or blocked and bacteria start to grow, resulting in every teenager's nightmare SPOTS.
How to use Acu-clear
Before you use your Acu-clear for the first time it is very important to take a picture of the area you will be addressing. Improvements generally take place in small increments and can be difficult to see on a daily basis. Take the picture in a room that has no natural light and duplicate the exact lighting again when you take your "after" pictures.
Wash your face with a good quality skin care product before using the Acu-clear. Although optional, results will be more dramatic if used with a high quality skin care product. Products containing Vitamin A (such as Retin-A) should only be used after using your Acu-clear as these products may block the LED lights from penetrating into the skin.
Put on the safety goggles/glasses provided, place the mask on your head and adjust the head band to fit.
Switch on, allow approximately 20 minutes for each daily session. It is highly recommended you use the Acu-clear system daily as this will provide optimal results. Most people relax in the privacy of their home, watch television, catch up on phone calls, surf the Web, or read a book while using their Acu-clear.
The Acu-clear can be used more often than once a day.
The Acu-clear is most effective if used daily on the affected areas. Teenagers, please be patient and use your Acu-clear everyday. The Acu-clear system should be used daily up to 30 minutes. Once the skin is clear continue to use your Acu-clear daily if possible, to kill any bacteria causing spots. Use it while doing homework, watching TV, on the Internet... make your Acu-clear a part of your daily lifestyle! To enhance your Acu-clear, it is recommended that you see a qualified dermatologist or esthetician along with a good topical acne product. Topical acne products should NOT be used before using your Acu-clear, but can be applied afterwards.
Care & Cleaning
To clean the Acu-clear system, apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol onto a cotton pad and thoroughly wipe the entire Acu-clear system including the tops of the LEDs. Always let the Acu-clear dry thoroughly before using again.
LED lights are very bright, so you should not point the Light directly at your eyes. It is essential that you wear the provided safety glasses/goggles at all times while using the Acu-clear system.
If you are pregnant or taking medication (such as Tetracycline) which causes light sensitivity, you should consult your physician before using Acu-clear.
