Trulyclear 2 light therapy system review

A few years back I lived in central London for a few months. It was a stressful time as my mum was undergoing treatment for breast cancer and I spent the majority of my time in Denmark with her. I’ve often found that my skin reacts when I get stressed and I started getting spots and felt taken back to my teenage days. I came across a clinic near to where I stayed in Queensway that promoted a red light booth, a bit like a tanning booth. I read up on the benefits of red light and decided to give it a go.

Red light helps:

  • Stimulate collagen formation
  • Increase ATP (fuel for our cells)
  • Stimulate cell turnover
  • Minimizes mild scaring
  • Reduce hyper-pigmentation
  • Minimize pore size
  • Reduce wound healing time
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Smoother and improved surface
  • Reduce pigmentation causes from acne lesions
  • Increases circulation and moisture retention.

After the first session I saw a result. People started commenting that I looked healthy and fresh. I’ve always battled with enlarged pores so I saw these decrease as well. I then moved outside the capital and couldn’t continue this treatment. I was therefore naturally very excited when I was offered to try the trulyclear vol. 2 from American True Company recently.

Red light skin therapy using trulyclear

This machine not only provides red but also blue and green light therapy which has additional benefits like proportion bacteria that can cause acne and can also improve epidermal hyper-pigmentation, the latter I’ve experienced around my mouth and on my cheeks after pregnancy.

My initial concern was that the trulyclear product is not FDA approved, though this is not a system for treating medical symptoms for which you are recommended to seek professional help. This is stated on the company’s website as well.


It comes with a charger and protective goggles as the light can be damaging to your eyes. I started out using it all over my face with three times 3 minute sessions on the lowest settings. After the very first use my skin felt soft and refreshed. My skin went a little red, but this quickly settled. I stayed with the lowest settings for the first week, then tried to up all of the settings by one, but my skin didn’t agree with this well, so I went back to the lowest settings.


I have found it a little time consuming as you have to wear the goggles, so you can’t do other things while using the product. Though this is in reality a good thing as it forces you to sit and relax, which I need to do more of. I realised that if I just focus on the areas of my face that need it, it works well. I’ve seen the pigment change around my mouth go down, which I’m pleased about.

I would have liked the instruction manual to have been more throughout. It’s printed in a very small font size and with limited information. It didn’t leave me feeling confident in the full use of the product and it therefore took me a while to work out. I’ve focused on using the red light function for now.

The trulyclear 2 retails at $430 and can be ordered online.
