Acne can happen at any age.
Adults are equally susceptible to this painful and frustrating condition at various stages of life. We understand. And we are happy to offer a variety of treatments that relieve the symptoms and control the outbreaks.
BLU-U® Light Therapy makes a dramatic difference quickly. It clears up acne by killing the bacteria that cause it.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) makes BLU-U® treatments work even faster.
BLU-U® Light Therapy
Noticeable improvement in as little as two weeks.
BLU-U® Light Therapy clears your skin of acne by killing the bacteria that cause it. The fluorescent blue light is toxic to Proprionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) ™ the bacterium that promotes acne breakouts.
BLU-U® is safe, fast, painless, and very effective. It targets only your acne-prone sebaceous glands, not the surrounding tissue.
BLU-U® often works faster than the traditional topical or oral treatments. You should see visible improvement in two to four weeks.
TOPICAL OR ORAL TREATMENT ALTERNATIVE BLU-U® is an effective option if your skin is irritated by acne gels, creams, and liquids. BLU-U® is also an excellent, drug-free choice if you cannot take antibiotics or if you don’t want to take oral acne medications.
BLU-U®: The Treatment
- During BLU-U® Therapy
- 16 minutes, two times per week A typical treatment takes approximately 16 minutes. All you do is put on protective goggles and sit facing the BLU-U® light. It’s painless and relaxing.
- For optimal results we usually recommend two treatments per week for four consecutive weeks.
- After BLU-U® Therapy
- No downtime There is no recovery period and no residual redness, scarring, or burning.
- Maintenance BLU-U® is an acne treatment, not a cure. Depending on lifestyle factors, your acne may stay away for months after the initial treatment sequence. Some patients benefit from a single monthly maintenance treatment.
BLU-U® does no damage to the skin and requires no downtime. There are no known side effects. If you are pregnant or nursing, or if you have a sensitivity to light, you should consult with us before undergoing BLU-U® treatment.
