Acne. That one word has haunted countless teenagers and adults over the years. Acne treatments from the past have ranged from honey and raspberry compresses to excessive tanning to rubbing with vinegar. Newer treatments often involve stringent chemicals and antibiotics, which can have unwanted side effects.
If you are worried about the effects of pharmaceuticals and antibiotics on your body, the La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic near San Diego offers alternative acne treatments, including our Blu-U acne treatment.
Blu-U technology allows you to avoid the side effects of medicines while still getting rid of acne. Our trained cosmetic technicians clean your face and you are placed under a special blue light with special eye protection. You relax for the treatment, then get up and go. That’s how easy it is. Blu-U acne treatment is completely painless and safe. The light kills the acne-causing bacteria present in the skin before it can cause future skin problems. This new acne treatment not only helps speed the clearing of existing acne from your face, but also helps prevent acne from recurring.
Severe Acne Treatment
Some acne is so prevalent and deep-rooted that even this revolutionary acne treatmentcannot eradicate it alone. Developers of Blu-U acne treatment have teamed up with the producers of Levulan, a photosensitizing agent, to help make their acne treatment more effective.
Levulan is applied to the face prior to the Blu-U treatment and allowed to sink into the skin’s pores. Levulan is not an antibiotic; it simply makes the skin more susceptible to the Blu-U’s laser light so the bacteria-killing is deeper and more effective. This dual procedure is called Photo Dynamic Therapy.
