Sirius Pulsar Blemish Clearing Device Review

The Sirius Pulsar Blemish Clearing Device is an innovative acne treatment device that uses a combination of thermal and light energy to provide users with fast, effective pimple treatment in less time than many other light-based or topically applied products.



The Sirius Pulsar Blemish Clearing Device is an advanced acne spot treatment device that uses a combination of thermal energy and blue light technology to quickly clear away or fade most acne blemishes within about 24 hours. Because of the combination of treatment techniques, the Pulsar Acne Blemish Treatment Device provides users with clearer, smoother skin in less time than many other topical or non-topical products. If used at the first sign of a pimple, the Sirius Pulsar can help reduce the life cycle of a pimple, and reduce the likelihood of scarring from occurring.

Compared to the Sirius Aurora and Sirius Sonic (other acne treatments), the Sirius Pulsar is designed for small areas and individual pimple treatment. The device is compact and portable, making it great for travelling. Its small size also makes it one of the easiest devices on the market to use.

How to Use

The Sirius Pulsar is designed to be extremely easy to use. With just three steps – Place, Push, and Pulse – users can get the immediate pimple treatment that they desire.

Before each use, users should ensure that the treatment tip is thoroughly cleaned. This is especially important if the device is being used by more than one person. After the tip is cleaned, follow the steps below:

1. Place: Place the tip of the Sirius Pulsar over the blemish you wish to treat.

2. Push: Push the Power button to begin treatment.

3. Pulse: The treatment cycle will run for 2.5 minutes. After 2.5 minutes, the device will automatically turn off, indicating that the area has been sufficiently treated.

It is recommended that the treatment tip be cleaned after each use.

For best results, treatments should be repeated after 4-12 hours over the same pimple. For example, treat the pimple in the evening before bed, again in the morning, and again the following evening if necessary.

Unlike other similar products, the Sirius Pulsar does not need to be used on a regular basis in order to provide users with optimal results. Instead, it is designed to be used as an individual spot treatment as required.

When treating individual pimples or zits, users should treat each area two or three times over a period of 12 to 24 hours. When treated in this manner, the Pulsar helps reduce the life cycle of the pimple by about 50%. Many people find that their pimples get better (less inflamed, red, or sore) after just a single treatment.

Who Can Use

The Sirius Pulsar Acne Treatment Device is safe to use for all skin types. Those with very dark or very light skin can safely use the device without the risk of adverse side effects. At the same time, those with very dry to very oily skin can use the device.

One somewhat unique aspect of the Sirius Pulsar is its ability to be shared. However, if the device is going to be shared, the treatment tip should be cleaned very well before and after each use. This helps reduce the risk of infection.

Safety Features

Because the device is so safe and easy to use, few safety features need to be utilized on the device. However, the device’s built-in timer automatically powers off the device after 2.5 minutes. This helps prevent the risk of over-treatment over a particular area, while at the same time ensuring that each area is treated sufficiently.

Side Effects

The side effects of the Sirius Pulsar Acne Blemish Treatment Device are very minimal. In fact, users should expect no side effects when using the device. Thermal and blue light technology has been utilized safely in many dermatological devices for many years. The most common side effect of the device is slight reddening where the treatment tip is applied to the skin. However, this is completely normal, and should fade within a few hours. The skin should not be painful or irritated after each treatment. Additionally, users should not experience any peeling when using the Pulsar.

Compared to other acne treatment products (especially topicals), the Sirius Pulsar does not utilize medications or chemicals that have the potential to lead to burning, irritation, dryness, or redness.

Replacement Parts

The Sirius Pulsar acne treatment device provides unlimited uses without the need for expensive replacement cartridges or light bulbs. This makes the Sirius Pulsar an extremely affordable acne treatment system compared to other comparable products.

However, users should expect to replace the device’s battery occasionally. The included battery is good for approximately 70 treatments. However, beyond this, the battery is likely to be changed. Because of this, Sirius recommends using rechargeable batteries with the device. The Sirius Pulsar will indicate with a blinking blue light when the battery is running low and should be replaced.

The Sirius Pulsar is a unique acne treatment device that utilizes two different forms of treatments in order to optimize the effectiveness of each acne treatment. However, in order to understand how the device works, it may be helpful to understand the underlying concepts that are related to why pimples form in the first place.

Everyone has bacteria on the surface of the skin. These bacteria feed on the oils that are naturally produced by cells beneath the surface of the skin. These oils keep the skin healthy, moisturized, and protected. However, when a hair follicle or pore in the skin gets infected, these bacteria begin to multiply rapidly, clogging the pore. This is what eventually leads to the redness and irritation that is typically associated with a pimple.

Pulsar Technology

The Sirius Pulsar helps improve the appearance of pimples by first heating the blocked pore. This helps open and soothe the inflammation of the pimple. Second, the patented treatment tip delivers 425 nm Blue Light to the pimple. This particular wavelength of light has been shown to be effective at killing the bacteria that lead to acne. The combination of these treatments helps improve the appearance of existing acne blemishes, while helping to prevent new ones from occurring in the future. Additionally, it helps deliver faster, more immediate benefits compared to other products.
