Photodynamic Therapy for Acne
Blu-U Photodynamic Therapy is a non-drug therapy for
moderate acne. It is a unique blue light that kills the
P. Acnes bacteria in your skin. These treatments are
gentle and typically well-tolerated by patients. The Blu-U
light alone is FDA-cleared for light alone treatment of
moderate inflammatory acne.
Treatments are simple. You just have to sit with your
face close to the blue light for a short time, usually a
16-minute session about once or twice a week. The length
of the treatment course varies depending on the severity
of your acne, but Blu-U therapy can control your acne or
clear it up for a length of time.
Blu-U is a gentle treatment with little discomfort
and minimal adverse effects. It is not hot and is not
painful at all. Since it is not a drug, there are no
drug-related side effects to worry about.
