If you have moderate acne and are uncomfortable taking antibiotics, or you are unhappy with your current topical treatment results, BLU-U blue light therapy may be something for you to try. Blu-u is an easy, safe, and non-invasive treatment that is easy and fast to schedule.
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 roughly five weeks (amount of treatment depends on the desired outcome). It is safe, there is no intense heat involved, and the treatment is painless. After some weeks, the blue light can help control your acne.
The BLU-U blue light is available in the office of doctors who specialize in skin treatments. You can ask your doctor if your case of moderate acne is right for BLU-U blue light treatment. If you are looking for an alternative to medications or antibiotics, it might be just what you need.

Therma Scan (pulsed energy at a 1319 nm wavelength) allows controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin. This is ideal for non-invasive wrinkle and acne scar treatment through collagen remodeling, or for treating acne by heating sebaceous glands, thereby minimizing oil production. This procedure will lead to collagen remodeling, a proliferation of active fibroblasts, and treating over-acting sebaceous glands that result in the reduction of acne and improve acne scarring non-ablatively.
This is a non-invasive treatment and there is no downtime associated with this treatment. You may have some redness of the face which will resolve within 20-30 minutes.
