Blue Light Therapy
Not exclusive to teenagers, many young adults, people in their 20’s and 30’s, have trouble with acne that is hard to control. The BLU-U® Blue Light Therapy – using light without drugs or antibiotics – may be something for you to try. If you are looking for an alternative to medications or antibiotics, it might be just what you need.
What is Blue Light Therapy?
The BLU-U is a unique blue light that can kill 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 Dr. Lin, approximately a 16-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, it’s not painful. After some weeks, the blue light can help control your acne.
Is the BLU-U® a laser?
The BLU-U is not a laser. Lasers deliver light as coherent beams, while the BLU-U delivers incoherent light scattered over a larger area.
