Acne & Blemishes
Acne is not exclusive to teenagers, many young adults have trouble with acne too. Acne-causing bacteria (P. Acnes) proliferate in an oily environment such as a skin follicle. Skin follicles congest due to a buildup of oil (sebum), makeup and debris as well as our skin’s slowing cell turnover rates. Acne-causing bacteria trapped in congested skin follicles cause what we see as pimples, pustules, whiteheads and blackheads. At SKIN we offer BLU-U Blue Light Treatment for acneic skin.
WHAT IS BLU-U LIGHT TREATMENT?
BLU-U® blue light photodynamic therapy is an advanced treatment for managing acne (moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris). It is recommended as an alternative to or in combination with antibiotics or topical treatments. Employing therapeutic blue light, BLU-U® selectively targets and destroys acne-causing bacteria (P. Acnes). Treatments are safe and comfortable, managing acne in teenagers and adults. The average patient will experience a gradual improvement of active acne and breakouts with several BLU-U® treatments. We recommend BLU-U treatments in combination with our medical grade skin care products.
