An Innovative Way to Control Moderate Acne
Not exclusive to teenagers, many young adults, people in their 20’s and 30’s, have trouble with acne that is hard to control. With all the available acne treatments out there to try, it can be overwhelming. If you have moderate acne and are uncomfortable taking antibiotics or are unhappy with your current topical treatment results, BLU-U® blue light therapy – using light without drugs or antibiotics – may be something for you to try.
BLU-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy is a non-drug therapy for moderate acne. It is a unique blue light that kills the P. acnes bacteria in your skin. BLU-U light treatments are gentle and typically well tolerated by patients.
The BLU-U light alone is FDA cleared for light alone treatment of moderate inflammatory acne.
If you have moderate acne and are uncomfortable taking antibiotics, or are unhappy with your current oral or topical antibiotics results, schedule a consultation with our physicians to determine if BLU-U is right for you.
BLU-U treatments are simple. You just have to sit with your face close to the blue light for a short time, usually a 16-minute session about once or twice per week. The length of the treatment course varies depending on the severity of your acne, but BLU-U therapy can control acne or clear it up for a length of time.
Yes. BLU-U therapy is safe. It is a gentle treatment with little discomfort and minimal adverse effects. It is not hot and is not painful at all. Since it is not a drug, there are no drug-related side effects to worry about. The BLU-U light alone is FDA cleared for light alone treatment of moderate inflammatory acne. This device should not be combined with photosensitizing drugs when treating acne.
