Revolutionary Blu-U® Acne Treatment
The Blu-U® acne treatment is a popular acne solution for clients with mild to moderate acne. It is a nice alternative to ointments and medications. The Blu-U® light treatment is a blue light therapy that kills bacteria on your skin and therefore can clear or control your acne.
How Blu-U® Acne Treatments Work
Blu-U® treatments are simple and non-evasive. You simply sit with the light close to your face for about 20 minutes, once or twice a week, depending on the severity of your acne. Blu-U® treatments can clear mild to moderate inflammatory acne in a few visits. Treatments are safe and there is absolutely no downtime for this procedure.
The doctor might consider a combination of Blu-U® acne treatment and PDT (photodynamic therapy) treatments. Levulan, a topical medicine compound, is applied before the exposure to a Blu-U® light for the treatment of persistent blemishes or more severe acne. The compound is activated with the light to attack the acne bacteria. Usually 3 treatments are scheduled at intervals of 4 weeks. Most Vancouver patients experience long term improvement following Blu-U® /PDT treatments. Blu-U® light treatment can be an option for acne treatment when scrubs, peels, topical products or pills have failed.
What to Expect with Blu-U® Acne Treatments
Photodynamic treatments provide effective improvement in sun damaged skin and can effectively reduce and treat various actinic keratoses, “sun spots” or other lesions. These treatments provide both preventive and therapeutic benefits. The downtime for the procedure is minimal and can be undertaken even if your skin is suntanned. PDT treatments lead to a smother and rejuvenated appearance by maintaining or recovering healthy skin.
