Dermastyle Pulse clears up your skin with LEDs

There is a plethora of skin treatments out there that tout the best results and being the easiest to use. While that may be true, something as simple as coffee grounds and olive oil can be just as, if not more effective than some of the high-priced facial creams out there. The Dermastyle Pulse is one such treatment that likely has some sort of benefit, but may or may not be worth all of the money you’re going to pay for it.

This hand held device is not a moisturizer, or an exfoliant. Rather, it is merely using LED technology to kill bacteria, reduce inflammation, and give your skin that “healthy glow”. While it may have positive results, paying $149 for something that needs to constantly be charged, and need the aid of other skin-cleansers is not worth it. This product uses red and blue LEDs, which both have different effects on the skin, and produce a purple color when combined. It has both full and spot treatment modes, and the ability to pause in the middle of a treatment, so you can resume it later. It may be clinically proven, but it is terribly expensive and chances are it won’t be as effective as a good facial cleansing routine.

  • This is a complete snake-oil device – There are no clinical indications that an LED or any light source of the size and type in this device could have any affect on even mild skin blemishes, let alone acne.

    • that just is not true, blue light at 415nm wavelength is proven to kill acne in multiple peer-reviewed clinical studies. http://dx.doi.org/10.1046%2Fj.1365-2133.2000.0348

      "After 12 weeks of active treatment a mean improvement of 76% (95% confidence interval 66–87) in inflammatory lesions was achieved by the combined blue–red light phototherapy; We have found that phototherapy with mixed blue–red light, probably by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, is an effective means of treating acne vulgaris of mild to moderate severity, with no significant short-term adverse effects."

  • One would have better luck using a Playstation Move controller on acne than this thing and it's much cheaper.
