Tanda have developed acne treatments that use advanced technology to kill bacteria and leave skin clear.
Their range of products use light therapy to treat acne, pain relief or even the signs of aging. In this review we look at the Zap and Clear+ to see if they are as effective as the best acne creams and serums.
The Tanda Clear+ is different to other acne light treatments like the LMS Spotlight because it uses a combination of blue light together with sonic vibration and gentle warming.
Blue LED light has been clinically proven to kill the bacteria that causes acne by using a phototoxic effect. When used with sonic vibration and heat, the skin pores open up so the bacteria have no where to hide.
With a large 16.7cm² treatment area, the Clear+ device can be used on lots of spots at the same time. There are no known harmful side effects of LED light therapy so it doesn’t matter if the treatment areas overlap.
- works for all skin types
- Most people see results within 1-2 weeks
- no known harmful side effects of light therapy
- treatment heads can be easily cleaned between uses
- The large head of the Tanda Clear+ doesn’t contour well to the forehead area
- Not recommend for deeper, more cystic acne
- You will need to charge the built in battery every 4-5 days
For best results you should cleanse your skin and use the Tanda Clear+ for 3 minutes on the affected area twice a day. Although most people see results after 1-2 weeks it is possible to see improvements to your complexion in just 24 hours!
Because the blue light kills the bacteria that causes acne, if used as part of your daily skincare routine, you can prevent future breakouts entirely.
What’s in the Tända Clear+ Kit?
- Clear+ cordless rechargeable handpiece
- Clear+ treatment head (replacements available)
- Recharging stand & Power supply
- Goggles (although it’s safe to use without them)
- User manual
The smaller Tanda Zap is a pocket sized beauty tool that clears individual acne blemishes and works in exactly the same way as the Clear+.
Ideal for targetting smaller areas of acne or spot breakouts, the treatment time for the Zap should be 2 minutes twice per day. The vibration stops automatically after 2 minutes so that you know when the treatment time is up.
When used as a zit Zapper, the AAA batteries that come with the device last for about 50 treatments so if you need to treat large areas of your face then it’s much better to go for the Clear+.
- Pocket sized acne treatment
- Safe and easy to use
- The LED treatment head lasts 1,000 treatments and can’t be replaced like the Clear+
The Tanda Zap costs £89.95 from Amazon.
Tanda Light Treatment Therapy Review Verdict
Some people find that acne creams and topical skin care products can cause dryness, irritation or even pain so acne light therapy is a great alternative since it has no side-effects and is completely safe for all skin types.
The Tanda Clear+ and Zap are very easy to use if a little expensive to buy. Not only will you need to keep the batteries charged but the LED treatment head will need to be replaced after around 6,000 uses.
