The Blu-U acne treatment we use at our medical spa in Indianapolis is just one of the many tools we use to combat breakouts and reduce acne. It works by using heat from light energy to kill the p-acne bacteria on the surface of the skin. This bacteria is responsible for both acne breakouts and general inflammation. During a treatment, you simply sit under a blue light, which does not hurt or feel uncomfortable. We typically recommend patients see us once a week for eight weeks to see results; however, some patients may require additional treatments depending on the severity of their acne.
