An Innovative Way to Control Moderate Acne

Acne affects people of all ages and is not exclusive to teenagers.

The BLU-U is a unique blue light that destroys the root cause of acne by killing

the P.acnes bacteria -- giving you clearer skin. Treatments are simple and

consist of sitting in front of the blue light for about 16 minutes, one to two

sessions per week. Treatments can continue for up to five weeks depending

upon the severity of your acne. This non-medication light therapy is safe and

will not hurt.

The BLU-U blue light is available in the offices of doctors who specialize in skin treatments. You can ask your doctor if your case of moderate acne is right for BLU-U blue light treatment. If you are struggling to control your acne and are looking for an alternative to medications or antibiotics, it might be just what you need. Ask your dermatologist if the BLU-U blue light treatment is right for you.

What is 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 sit with your face close to the light for a short time at a schedule set up by your doctor, approximately a 16-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.
