Men and women suffering from acne know that finding the right skin care in San Diego can be
challenging. Topical ointments, creams and other products may help temporarily, but they don”t solve the problem. The key is combining these treatments with a medical spa service that targets acne-prone skin, such as BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy.
What is BLU-U?
The BLU-U system is a facial rejuvenation procedure that is used to treat acne, rosacea and certain pre-cancerous growths. During treatment, a light-activated chemical is applied to the skin, and then light energy is delivered in short pulses to the targeted area.
How does BLU-U help with acne?
The BLU-U treatment helps reduce acne in 3 ways:
- The light-activated chemical that is applied to the skin during the BLU-U procedure destroys acne-causing bacteria.
- The intense pulsed light exfoliates the skin and unclogs pores.
- The light shrinks oil glands in the skin.
How long does the procedure take?
One BLU-U session normally takes about 15 minutes, and no recovery time is usually needed. Most likely, your skin will appear clearer in about 2 weeks and will continue to improve with subsequent sessions.
