How does LumiCleanse™ work?

The LumiCleanse™ system comprises two components: the multi-LED lamp (KT-D™ lamp) and the LumiCleanse™ gel:

The KT-D™ lamp emits a safe blue light* which photoactivates the LumiCleanse™ gel.

The LumiCleanse™ gel is a combination of two gels (a light-trapping chromophore gel and a carrier gel). LumiCleanse™ converts the light from the KT-D™ lamp into different colour wavelengths that penetrate the skin, stimulate healing and combat acne.
