How is blu acne treatment different than other acne solutions?

Acne is a problem that affects many teens and young adults, and it’s often difficult to treat. However, if you’ve tried other options without success, the innovative Blu-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy is now available for acne. Blu-U is a safe, minimally invasive solution for stubborn acne. But how is Blu acne treatment different from the other acne solutions available.

What is the Blu-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy?
Blu-U is a photofacial therapy that uses blue light combined with a photo sensitizing agent known as Levulan Kerastick, to treat skin conditions such as acne.

How it works
The photosensitizing agent is first applied to the skin, and this helps to make the bacteria more sensitive to the blue light. The narrow band blue light is then delivered to the skin targeting the acne causing bacteria. Blu-U is a relatively painless procedure that takes about 15 minutes to complete. It may require 5-8 treatments to achieve the best results.

How is Blu-U different from other acne solutions?
The results achieved with Blu-U have proven to be far better than those with conventional options such as antibiotics, or topical creams and lotions. Blu-U is different from these acne solutions because it treats acne on multiple levels.

Blu-U kills the p. acnes bacteria that causes acne, clears clogged pores, and decreases the production of oil by the sebaceous glands. Blu-U provides long term reduction in pimples. It is particularly beneficial for treating mild to moderate cases of acne.
