Not exclusive to teenagers, many young adults, people in their 20’s and 30’s, have trouble with acne that is hard to control. We know there are many acne treatments out there for you to try and it can be overwhelming. If you have mild to moderate acne and are uncomfortable taking antibiotics or are unhappy with your current topical treatment results, BLU-U blue light therapy – using light without drugs or antibiotics – may be something for you to try at our Vancouver, BC clinic.
What is BLU-U Blue Light Treatment?
The BLU-U is a unique blue light that kills the P. acnes bacteria in your skin. Treatments are simple – you sit with your face close to the light for a short time , approximately a 17-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 is not painful. After some weeks, the blue light can help control your acne.
If you are looking for an alternative to medications or antibiotics, it might be just what you need. We are proudly serving the Coal Harbour and Vancouver, BC communities. Contact us to learn more or book an appointment.
