Blu-U Acne Treatment

In the battle against breakouts, light therapy is a painless option that can deliver noticeable results.

LU-U Acne treatment uses light therapy to treat and prevent acne breakouts. The blue light penetrates the skin, and stimulates growth that helps eliminate acne causing bacteria. This treatment is a painless, non-invasive solution for stubborn breakouts.


What to expect


The procedure is so simple and painless you can even listen to music during the treatment. Prior to your treatment, your skin should be cleansed with soap and water, and oil free. Then, you will sit comfortably in a chair while the light is applied to the area of concern. After treatment, you can resume your daily activities- this means no downtime or inconvenience.

What to expect


Skin will turn red and swollen for 3-7 days and patients may experience slight discomfort. It’s important to stay out of the sun or bright light for 48 hours after the session.


Is it safe?

The BLU-U treatment is very safe. The blue-violet light penetrates just deep enough into the tissue to reach the acne target. The wavelength of the Blu-U light targets only the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria, the main cause of acne. Even though there is no evidence of complications, we will not perform this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

What are the advantages of light therapy?

Unlike other acne treatments, Blu-u is considered safe and gentle. With no harsh side effects, this drug-free treatment is safe to combine with other acne therapies.
