So remember a few weeks back when I got this face vacuuming acne treatment at a derm? Well, the same medical device company that makes the lasers your derm uses also make the at-home device Claro ($195 retail) and they are giving one to YOU (maybe. if you win. fingers crossed.)
So the Claro is not as strong as an in-office treatment, but it uses the same IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to stimulate oxygen and attack bacteria (blue light), and reduce inflammation (red light). These combine with infra-red light which boosts the antibacterial function and helps the blue light work.
Basically, you zap the zit twice with the device to see results within 24 hours (reduced zit size, redness etc.) Honestly my absolute favorite thing about this guy is that it drastically reduces my desire to touch a breakout - and you really shouldn’t touch. I felt like I was taking action - a much healthier action than breaking out some kind of extraction tool. I also felt it helped reduce redness for healing acne (that I had already touched).
