Using Lumie Clear
Lumie Clear works best if you use it every day as continued use will not only heal the infected areas but also prevent new spots forming.
Treatment times depend on the distance between your skin and the light. For best results, hold Lumie Clear next to your skin and treat a discrete area in just 15 minutes per day. Alternatively, use the adjustable stand to treat a larger area; this is a more comfortable way to treat your shoulders, back or face and takes around an hour.
Lumie Clear features a built-in timer so that you can accurately measure your treatment sessions. The hands-free stand allows you to get on with other things while the light is working on your skin. Goggles are also included, though you’ll only need them if the light is shining at your eyes. The light head folds down into the base for compact storage and the whole unit is small enough for you to take it with you when you go away.
When you unpack Lumie Clear you should find that, as well as a base unit and a head unit, you have a power adaptor, a plug converter and a pair of goggles.
Lumie Clear has no internal battery so it can only be used when it’s plugged in and the On/Off light will illuminate so you know when it’s working. There is a switch on the side to turn Lumie Clear on and off.
After several weeks of daily use, many people find their skin is completely clear. If that’s the case, you can skip a few days and see what happens; if you feel a new outbreak of spots appearing then go back to using Lumie Clear until your skin is better again. You may find you can manage your acne in this way and not have to use Lumie Clear every day.
There is no risk from tanning when using Lumie Clear but blue lights can be hazardous if stared at for long periods so it is recommended that you wear the yellow safety goggles provided with Lumie Clear as a precaution, especially when treating your face (or any time the lights might shine in your eyes).
Lumie Clear can be used on its own or in conjunction with other existing acne treatments, but it is recommended that you check first with your GP.
