Acne Blue Light Therapy
BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy – Advanced treatment for managing acne (moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris).
What is BLU-U®?BLU-U® blue light photodynamic therapy is an advanced treatment for managing acne (moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris). It is recommended as an alternative to or in combination with antibiotics or topical treatments. This treatment is pain free. BLU-U® is not a laser, but a blue light that will help to decrease the amount of bacteria that is on the skin. This treatment can be done on the face, neck, chest or back.
What can I expect during treatment?During treatment, the patient will be sitting comfortably upright in a chair. The light will be placed over the treatment area and treatment will begin.
What can I expect after treatment?After the treatment area is treated, it may be slightly pink as the light is warm. This side-effect will subside in a few minutes, up to 1 hour post. As the skin can be sensitive to the sun after the treatment, it’s recommended to use an SPF of 30 or higher immediately post treatment and for a few days after.
