Acne is a difficult and frustrating disease. Its effects go beyond the physical, affecting confidence and self-esteem; it’s difficult to treat, and acne can strike at various ages.
There are many different treatments for acne, but reliable results can be difficult to achieve.
Dr. van Aardt and his associates believe in taking a consistent approach to achieve the best results:
- proper diagnosis
- appropriate step-by-step care
- regular follow-up
By combining prescription treatments and laser based treatments with appropriate skin care, they achieve better, more permanent results in less time.
Blue Light for Acne
BLU-U Blue Light Illuminator is used in conjunction with other treatments for acne.
The BLU-U is a very specific blue light (410nm) that kills the acne bacteria (p. acnes) in your skin.
Treatments are done over 5 weeks and are simple, safe and painless. You sit with your face close to the light once or twice a week for up to 30 minutes in total.
Treatment with blue light can control your acne or clear it up for very long periods of time with a success rate of up to 60%. With appropriate skin care based on the advice of our trained professionals, clearance rates are even higher.
