Acne Blue Light Therapy
The BLU-U Light system is a unique new therapeutic light that treats moderate inflammatory acne using the innovative Acne Photo Clearing (APC) technology. This technology (i.e., APC), destroys the most common bacteria that causes acne easily and quickly. BLU-U effectively clears most moderate inflammatory acne in four to six weeks.
Is BLU-U Safe? Are there any side effects?
BLU-U is one of the safest acne treatments available. Its APC technology uses light that is UV-safe. There is no ultraviolet radiation present, thus it’s safer than sun-light. With BLU-U, there are no known side effects.
Who can be treated by BLU-U?
Almost anyone can be treated by BLU-U Light as it has proven to be very effective on moderate inflammatory acne. Pregnant women and people with photosensitivity, however, it is important to consult with Dr. Wang before beginning a treatment plan. Each patient with a history of acne will benefit from an individualized program which may utilize multiple modalities of treatment to improve outcome and long-term results.
What happens during BLU-U treatment? Does it hurt?
With BLU-U, a typical treatment session takes approximately 17 minutes. You are positioned comfortably while the therapeutic light is activated. Patients sometimes feel a slightly warm sensation. Most of our patients describe their BLU-U treatments as relaxing, easy, and most importantly safe and painless. If you wish, you can bring your iPod to listen to music during your treatment session.
How many treatments are required?
Dr. Wang can tell you about the treatment plan that is right for you. It will involve a series of BLU-U treatment sessions, typically 2-3 times a week for 4 weeks. It is important to keep the appointments recommended by Dr. Wang. By following the treatment plan prescribed for you, you will see maximum results and enjoy clearer skin with BLU-U.
