Blu-U® Light Treatments
The Blu-U® is a non-laser visible blue light device that targets the bacteria in the oil glands, eliminating a major player in the process of acne production. The latest advance in technology to treat light to moderate recurrent acne in adolescents and adults, this procedure is non-invasive, safe, and has no downtime.
The blue light penetrates deep enough into the tissue to reach the acne target, without affecting surrounding skin. It triggers porphyrins which attack and destroy acne bacteria.
Blu-U® light can also be combined with a topical agent called Levulan which acts in three ways to combat acne. While inactivating bacteria, it also shuts down sebaceous glands, and unclogs pores by exfoliating the skin. An additional benefit of this treatment is the re-texturizing of the skin, which can smooth the appearance of acne scarring. This approach is often used in treating more severe cases of this condition. By addressing root causes, long-term to permanent reduction of acne is more likely to be achieved.
