Blu-U Light Therapy

Image related to Blu-U Light Therapy Miami Beach

Not exclusive to teenagers, many young adults, people in their 20’s and 30’s, have trouble with acne that is hard to control. We know there are many acne treatments out there for you to try and it can be overwhelming. If you have moderate acne and are uncomfortable taking antibiotics or are unhappy with your current topical treatment results, BLU-U® blue light therapy – using light without drugs or antibiotics – may be something for you to try. Ask your doctor today.

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, and it’s not painful. After some weeks, the blue light can help control your acne.

The BLU-U blue light is available in our office if you are looking for an alternative to medications or antibiotics, it might be just what you need.

The Blu- U is very therapeutic in rosacea patients and helps decrease redness and improve acne papules and pustules.
