BLU-U® Light Therapy Austin

BLU-U® Light Therapy zaps acne by destroying the bacteria that cause it. The fluorescent blue light targets only your acne-prone sebaceous glands, killing the Proprionbacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria while leaving the surrounding skin untouched.

BLU-U® treats mild inflammatory acne on the face, neck, and scalp. It works better and much faster than gels, creams, liquids, or oral medications, and you don’t face any risk of bad drug reactions or side effects. You see noticeable improvement in approximately two weeks and dramatically clearer skin in four weeks or less.

The Treatment:

Treatments are safe, painless, and fast, typically requiring only 16 minutes. You simply sit in front of the BLU-U® light source wearing protective goggles, while you relax.

The Schedule:

A typical treatment schedule is two 16-minute sessions per week for four consecutive weeks. Many patients benefit from a single maintenance treatment per month thereafter.


BLU-U® Light Therapy is one of the safest acne treatments available. There are no drugs, no side effects, and you need no time for recovery. Women who are pregnant or nursing and people who have a sensitivity to light should consult with us before proceeding with therapy.
