FDA Approves Pulsaderm LED Blue

Device makes debut at Cosmoprof.

Pulsaderm, the US-based skincare line that offers a family of state-of-the-art skincare devices at affordable prices, launched its FDA-Cleared Pulsaderm LED Blue at this year's Cosmoprof North America. The FDA-approved Class II Medical Device is available for $189 and is specially designed with advanced blue light LED technology to deliver a non-invasive and painless treatment for mild to moderate inflammatory acne. With competing FDA-Cleared light therapy devices often selling at well over $500, Pulsaderm is providing a safe, effective and affordable alternative.

"We are ecstatic that Pulsaderm LED Blue has been rigorously tested and approved by the FDA," said Pulsaderm Founder and CEO Yvonne von Berg. "Following the enormous success of the launch of Pulsaderm and Pulsaderm Buddy facial cleansing brushes, adding Pulsaderm LED Blue seems like a natural addition to the brand's growing line of affordable and effective beauty products."

Pulsaderm LED Blue has taken blue light therapy utilized by many dermatologists and developed an over-the-counter version that can be used by both professionals and consumers. The device employs wavelengths of light at a frequency of 415 nanometers (nm), which penetrates into the skin's pores to activate light-sensitive porphyrins, located in the outer cell membranes of acne or acne-causing bacteria. When porphyrins are exposed to certain wavelengths of light, they produce free radicals that kill the acne-causing bacteria without harming healthy skin. Utilizing 97 non-damaging LED lights, the Pulsaderm LED Blue offers nearly four times as much power as most of its competitors, guaranteeing faster results for clearer, blemish-free skin, said the company.
