Acne breakouts occur when hormonal changes cause our sebaceous glands to produce excess sebum (oil), P. acnes bacteria feed on the sebum and multiply, clogged pores trap the multiplying P. acnes bacteria and white blood cells move in to fight off the invading bacteria -the result, a pimple. Blue LED light has been clinically proven to kill acne-causing P. acnes bacteria, clearing existing blemishes and preventing future outbreaks.
The clear+ uses a combination of powerful blue light with sonic vibration and gentle warming for clinically proven clearing results.
How it works
- 414nm blue light works by producing oxygen singlets which attach to the P.acnes bacteria (acne-causing bacteria). These singlets have a phototoxic effect on key porphorins, causing the P.acnes bacteria to self-destruct
- Increases microcirculation to reduce swelling and inflammation while agitating the skin to expose more of the bacteria to the light
- Produced by the light energy, opens pores and allows the light to reach more bacteria
Clinically proven to clear acne faster and more effectively than ever before 30% more effective than blue light alone! FDA cleared and Health Canada approved for the treatment of mild to moderate inflammatory acne.

Does the Clear+ Prevent breakouts from occurring?
Yes! The Clear+ uses blue LED light that is scientifically proven to kill P. acnes bacteria, treat existing blemishes and prevent further breakouts. If used as part of your daily skincare routine, you can prevent your breakouts from ever happening.
What should I expect to feel or see after using the Clear+?
First 24-48 Hours:
During treatment users will feel a warm sensation on the skin that some have described as calming. Many users experience a decrease in blemish size and an improvement in their complexion.
After 1 week of treatment:
Most users will see a decrease in the number of blemishes. The majority will also see a reduction in redness and skin oiliness, and will continue to see an overall improvement in skin condition. When used regularly, Clear+ significantly reduces the amount of acne-causing bacteria on the skin helping to prevent future breakouts.
Is the Clear+ a one-spot treatment?
No, the surface area of the Clear+ is 2.59in² /16.7cm² , so it can be used to treat several acne affected areas at once. The larger treatment surface also helps to prevent further breakouts in the surrounding area. For a spot treatment see theTanda ZAP.
What is light therapy?

No. Laser and light devices cannot penetrate clothing sufficiently to provide an effective treatment.
Will the LED’s used in the Clear+ burn my skin?
No. Under normal operating circumstances, the temperature remains at a comfortable level. If the temperature exceeds this level, a temperature sensor in the device terminates the treatment cycle.
Is there any UV danger when using the Clear+?
No. The Clear+ does not use UV light. The Clear+ uses 414nm blue LED light.
Do I have to wear the goggles?
The goggles have been provided for your convenience and comfort as some people find the light bright. Company sponsored testing showed that, when used as directed, the device did not pose risk of damage to the eyes.

Wish it lasted longer! Amazing!Review by myteacher
Anyway, that gives you a picture of the severity of my skin when I was younger. Now that I'm 30, I still get cystic acne, but to a much less severe extent. I get 1-5 cysts a month and have tried to treat them with Rx topicals and birth control. I was on Accutane for 9 months, twice.
I've had this thing for about a month and I have noticed a big difference. I had a lot of colonies forming that had been there and worsening for months. Now they are at leat 70% gone. I had one really bad golf-ball sized cyst, which the tanda did not get rid of, but I feel like it helped it mature and go away faster (3 days, instead of my usual 5-8 weeks). I had another set of cysts that again matured and then went away after 3 days. It seems to be working. You can't even tell I have acne now under my makeup, and it's only been a month. I am looking for a full face light with red and blue lights to help with the healing process at the same time, per the research. I wish Tanda made one.
This product will be a good thing for traveling, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see if light therapy works for them (it works for 90% of people with acne). ANother piece of useful advice for people looking for solutions to cystic acne: My dermatologist recommended taking bleach baths (1 c. bleach to a bath full of water) or swimming in chlorine in order to help open cysts heal faster, in addition to using an antibiotic topical OTC Neosporin. In addition to using the Tanda, the system seems to be working. I also use the Ren line of acne skincare products.

What a Difference!Review by Marie
the most part of the week and I already notice the pimples have cleared and there are
no bumps coming back. I'm really happy with the results because I've tried too many
products that haven't worked! the Tanda is my new favorite product and it's worth every
easy to use
Cons: time consuming, but worth the time!

“It started with a reduction in the size of the pimples I did have. And then I started to notice that I wasn’t getting any more breakouts. Then after a while, eventually, the blemishes that I did have began to disappear. I think the results speak for themselves.”
-Ryan, Age 29
“ I started getting acne at a young age, about 12 or 13. I didn’t care so much then, as it wasn’t too bad, but as I got older it got worse. I started breaking out in my T-zone, then it would move to my cheeks, overall my skin just looked awful. I was prescribed “Acutane” a very harsh drug that reduces acne, by my doctor and that didn’t even help. When I was introduced to Tanda, I thought it was going to be another treatment that just didn’t work for me, like all the rest, but after just a few days I started to notice a difference. Then after using it for a couple of weeks, I noticed that not only was my skin clearing, I wasn’t getting any new zits. I’m now 26 and I don’t suffer from acne any longer, thanks to Tanda.”
-Sarah, Age 26
