Blue Light Acne Treatments
A New 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. The BLU-U® Treatment – using light without drugs or antibiotics – may be something for you to try. Ask us when you make your appointment.
The BLU-U blue light is available at Skin Care Doctors, P.A. You can ask us if your case of moderate acne is right for BLU-U Blue Light Treatment. At this time, most insurance companies list the BLU-U blue light as a cosmetic treatment, so you may pay the doctor yourself. If you are looking for an alternative to medications or antibiotics, it might be just what you need.
What’s the Blue Light Treatment?
There is now a treatment available that doesn’t depend on medication. It’s called the BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy Illuminator Model 4170.
The BLU-U is a unique blue light that can kill the P. acnes bacteria in your skin. Treatments are simple – you simply sit with your face close to the light for a short time at a schedule set up by your doctor, approximately a 15-minute session about once or twice per week. The treatments may go on for five weeks or so. It’s safe, it’s not hot, it’s not painful. After some weeks, the blue light can help control your acne.
