BLU-U or blue light therapy is an extremely effective, safe non-drug, non-antibiotic treatment option for active acne. This treatment is safe for all skin types and extremely well tolerated for anyone who desires a non-invasive, natural option to treat acne. At Dermablue, we find Blu U treatments to be extremely effective as an add on treatment to your acne routine.
Is Blue-U therapy Safe?
Yes, Blu-U is a safe and gentle treatment with little discomfort and minimal downtime. It is not hot and not painful at all. Since it is not a drug, there are no drug-related side effects to worry about.
Blu-U light alone is FDA cleared for a light alone treatment of moderate ‘inflammatory’ or ‘red’ acne.
What to expect:
Blu-U treatments are simple. You just have to sit with your face close to a blue light for a short time, typically 16 minutes, one or two times a week. The length of the treatment course varies based on the severity of your acne. Blu U therapy can control your acne for a long period of time! It is very important to wear sunscreen and protective clothing after your treatments.
