HOW DOES BLU-U LIGHT WORK?

Acne is a big problem for many people. Have you heard of Blu-U in the treatment of persistent to moderate acne? Used in combination with medical grade home skin care and other medical aesthetic treatments, the Blu-U can kill the bacteria and stop acne before it starts.

 

It sounds complex, but it’s not at all. The concept is fairly simple, but effective. Blu-U Light uses a unique blue light to kill acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin. It’s that easy.

 

Acne is the most common skin condition being treated in the United States today. An estimated 40-50 million Americans suffer from some form of acne according to the American Academy of Dermatology. It’s not just teenagers either that face this troublesome issue. Having acne into your twenties, and beyond can be a chronic lifelong issue. Sometimes it’s due to hormones, things in the environment, or other factors. That’s what makes it a challenge to treat and sometimes requires a dermatologist’s care.

 

If you have acne, it can affect your self-esteem. You can be depressed and despondent about your skin’s appearance on a daily basis. You might even feel like you have tried everything to halt the nightmare your skin creates for you. But, if you have those dreaded acne blemishes on your face, or body, you certainly aren’t alone. Keep that in mind, but before you try another expensive skin care regimen to treat your blemishes, you should hear about a new option. It’s Blu-U Light to the rescue!

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?
This is the best part of Blu-U. All you have to do is sit in the doctor’s chair with your face near the unique blue light for about 17 minutes per session. You want to do this on a schedule of once or twice a week for 5 weeks. The light doesn’t feel hot or irritating on the skin, so it’s not painful in any way. You do wear protective eyewear during the sessions so your eyes aren’t exposed to the light. During the session, you will sit in front of the U-shaped light in a comfortable chair. Some people even find the brief session relaxing, and a chance to quiet your mind in a meditative state. Your mantra should be “goodbye acne!”

 

WHAT IT DOES TO YOUR ACNE
The reason it works is that it kills the P. acnes bacteria on the surface of your skin that causes all forms of acne such as cystic, whitehead, blackheads, and clogged pores. You’ll see an immediate difference in your skin after just a few treatments. It only gets better from there. Some people say that their skin has been completely transformed after using Blu-U.

 

THE SAFETY OF THE TREATMENT
Blu-U is a completely safe treatment. It’s not a laser light, nor does it emit any UV rays at all, so you don’t have to worry about it damaging your skin. It’s just going to help in the treatment of acne. The light is a specially designed florescent light that kills acne-causing bacteria. A topical solution that works in conjunction with the session is applied to the skin before being submitted to the light treatment. The only caution is if you are taking some kind of photosensitive prescription medication for any medical condition, you will want to consult with your prescribing physician. Otherwise, it’s safe and effective for anyone with moderate acne as an alternative to harsh acne medications. The blue light itself penetrates up to 2 mm of the skin’s epidermis. So, it won’t harm the deeper layers of your skin!

 

FOLLOW UP CARE
You should continue with your regular skincare regimen during the treatments. You might even find that once your acne starts to go away, that you can lighten up on some of your salicylic acid treatment products. Just take care to use oil-free products that are geared towards your skin type, and wash your face twice a day to get rid of surface makeup, dirt, oil, and bacteria. Hydrate with an oil-free, water-based moisturizer, and protect your skin from the sun with a daily SPF of at least a 15 or 30. Those are some of the basics to care for your skin that will improve its appearance for now and in the future.
