Blue Light Therapy

The Non-invasive Pre-cancer Treatment

Blu U Therapy

Blu-U® is a non-invasive, photodynamic method of treating pre-cancerous Actinic Keratosis. Actinic Keratosis, or “AKs” as they are called, are thick, scaly, and crusty patches of skin, formed from the skin’s inability to heal, after being exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun. Anyone who spends a lot of time in the sun, such as gardeners, landscapers, construction workers, and people who go to tanning salons, are at risk of getting AKs. Thankfully, Actinic Keratosis is treatable, and new healthy skin will grow in after treatment.

Bluelight therapy works through the use of light being emitted of a certain wavelength and intensity, on skin treated with a special medication, called Levulan. Levulan is a compound which causes the skin to be more sensitive to light. This medication enhances the effectiveness of Blue Light Therapy, by attaching to damaged skin cells, and forcing them to absorb more light. Which, in turn, destroys the bad cells, and allows healthy ones to replace them. Using this method, treatment results in a 90% cure rate!

Blu-U is also an option for treating acne. Patients typically experience a noticeable difference within two days. Treatment can be done with, or without Levulan, which allows more options for controlling the intensity of the treatment.

Blu-U is safe, relatively painless, and effective. Patients usually report that it feels like a mild sunburn for a couple days. Due to the use of Levulan, the photosensitizing agent, the skin is very sensitive to sun late for two days. Because of this, there is a little downtime, and patients should avoid being outside for that amount of time.

All of this is well worth it. Pre-cancerous lesions, mild to severe acne, and even rosacea can be effectively treated with Blue Light Therapy. If you want to revive treatment for these conditions, without more invasive or expensive techniques, Blu-u is one of your best options. 16:40 is all it takes, to get rid of actinic keratosis, excessive oils, and acne plagued skin.
