BLU-U LIGHT THERAPY

What is BLU-U Blue Light Treatment?

The BLU-U is a unique blue light that kills the P. acnes bacteria in your skin. Treatments are simple – you sit with your face close to the light for a short time at a schedule set up by your doctor, approximately a 17-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.

 

What skin conditions can the Blu-U Light treat?

 

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and your provider will personalize a treatment plan based on your needs and desired outcomes. However, you will see results after 10-12 treatments. 

How safe is it? Are there any side-effects? 
The Blu-U treatment is very safe. The blue-violet light penetrates just deep enough into the tissue to reach the acne target. It contains no ionizing radiation. Even though there is no evidence of complications, we will not perform this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
