This is a new treatment available that doesn’t depend on medication. The Blu-U Light Acne Treatment is very special; it can kill the P. acnes Bacteria in your skin. Treatments are simple- you simply sit with your face close to the light for a short time, usually a 15 minute session twice a week. You do this for four weeks, a total of eight treatments. It is not hot or painful. After a few weeks, the blue light can control your acne, or clear it up for a very long time. The blue light was cleared by the FDA in 2003 for the treatment of moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris.
Aesthetic Salon charges for the first eight treatments which is $50 per visit. After that we offer 8 treatments free of charge, Two treatments a week for a month and then we offer 1 treatment free of charge per week for a year.
We also offer another treatment for acne where a solution of Levulan is applied to your face and you wait one hour and sit under the blue light for 8 to 10 minutes. This procedure is for people who have cystic acne. A consultation with Dr. Hughes is need for both treatments. All consultations at the Aesthetic Salon are free.
