Acne is a common problem that affects both teenagers and adults. A variety of factors are involved in the development of acne, including the abnormal shedding of dead skin cells, an overproduction of oil and the presence of acne-causing bacteria on the skin. If you have tried other acne treatments in the past and have experienced minimal success, you may want to consider receiving Blu-U Light Treatments at our Medspa in San Diego.
This technology uses blue-violet light to effectively kill Propionibacterium acnes, the bacteria that can form within the oil glands in your skin and cause breakouts. It can be used as a sole acne treatment or in conjunction with topical acne treatments.
Your skin will be cleansed prior to beginning treatment and you will be given special goggles to protect your eyes during the procedure. During treatment, you will sit in front of the light source for a specific amount of time. Most treatment sessions take about 15 minutes and you will receive two treatments a week for a period of four weeks.
You can expect to see a significant improvement in your skin and a reduction of acne breakouts within a few treatment sessions. It is recommended that you receive monthly maintenance treatments to ensure that your skin stays clear. The procedure is painless and the light source only reaches the sebaceous glands and will not harm the surrounding skin.
