What is BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic

BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy is an effective new light-based therapy praised with revolutionizing the treatment of acne for teens as well as adults. BLU-U&reg destroys the most common bacteria that causes acne – without drugs, without pain, and without downtime. The BLU-U® system was the first medical device to receive FDA clearance in 2003 for the treatment of moderate inflammatory acne vulgarism.

How does it work?

The BLU-U® is a special blue light that can kill the p. acnes bacteria in your skin. You simply sit with your face close to the light for a short time (usually 30 minutes) at a schedule set up by your esthetician (usually once per week). The treatments may go on for five or so weeks. After treatment, the common result is long lasting clear skin.
