Acne (link back to acne patient education section) is a common skin disease that affects people of all ages, accounting for millions of visits to office-based physicians a year. The Blu-U has a unique light that kills the bacteria P. acnes that causes acne in your skin. Treatments are simple, and involve sitting with your face close to the blue light for a short session once or twice a week for a course of several treatments. This therapy is ideal for candidates with moderate acne who prefer to not take oral medications. It is safe and pain free. Ask our doctors if PDT for acne is right for you!
