“I tried the HydraFacial the other day for the first time and I am hooked. The benefits were numerous and instantaneous. After just one session my skin was noticeably plumper, more even-toned and much, much smoother. My skin was looking haggard, dull and patchy when I arrived at the clinic and the treatment gave my skin a new lease of life - it looks so healthy now! All the horrible blockages in my pores and blackheads have disappeared. HydraFacial is far more effective than a regular facial and for that reason I'll be coming back for more!”

“I've got to say, the HydraFacial really delivers! For a treatment that hadn't hurt, I was truly impressed with the instant improvements I experienced. The best way to describe it is that I felt like I'd sent my skin to the gym! It felt squeaky clean, moist and very fresh. Although you are able to, I didn't wear any make-up following the treatment and because I was literally glowing I didn't feel in the least bit self-conscious because my skin was visibly smooth, plump and dewy, and simply didn't need it! I enjoyed the experience of the treatment, it was comfortable (relaxing in fact) and pretty quick - about 40 mins. I will have the HydraFacial again - without a doubt!”

How Lustre Pure Light works

Many patients find that their skin improves and their spots seem better when they have been out in the sunshine. However sunlight also contains ultraviolet (UVA-UVB) light which can damage skin and even cause skin cancer.

Scientists have found that visible blue light at a wavelength of 420 nm is effective in killing P. acnes, the bacteria which causes acne and does not cause damage to the skin; blue light has been used by dermatologists for many years to treat acne.

How does blue light kill the bacteria which cause 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 active and has been clinically proven to destroy the bacteria.

Lustre Pure Light treatment harnesses this safe blue part of the natural light spectrum to eliminate the bacteria that cause spots while also being gentle on the skin.

How Lustre Pure Light works – the science

Step 1

Step1

Scientists have discovered that the spot causing bacteria, P. acnes produce a normally harmless chemical called Porphyrin.

Clinical trials have proven that when safe natural visible blue light at 420 nm is shone onto the skin there is no harm to the skin itself, but the Porphyrins produced by the spot causing bacteria become excited.

Step 2

Step2

When Porphyrins become excited they attach to the spot causing bacteria and begin to destroy it.

Step 3

Step3

When the spot causing bacteria P. acnes has been destroyed, acne begins to clear and continued blue light use can help reduce P. acnes growth and stop new spots forming.

“Dear Dr Rakus,
I just wanted to say a great BIG thank you to you and your staff for the fantastic experience I had at the clinic today.
As a first-time patient I must say how impressive I found the whole experience. The team are all so personable, knowledgeable and expert. I felt in safe hands throughout my visit. My Visia imaging to start was eye-opening and gave me a really clear and detailed insight and understanding of what my skin needs and how best to treat it – thank you! Pelleve was actually an amazingly comfortable and relaxing treatment and I experienced an immediate benefit; tightening and a smoother look. Having never experienced the legendary lip treatment from The London Lip Queen I was nervous but felt perfectly at ease and was absolutely ecstatic with the results. It was wonderful that you took such care and consideration to provide such a perfectly natural effect and now I have tried it, I will never go anywhere else for this treatment!!"

SF "I'm 44 now. My friends are always asking what I do to keep my skin such good shape and why I don't have any wrinkles. I tell them I've been going to Dr Rakus for 10 years. Even those who were formally against having anything done - ever - have now asked me for her number!"
