Levulan® + Blu-U® Light
You’re looking for an answer to your acne-prone skin, and the El Paso Cosmetic Surgery Advanced Clinical MedSpa has the solutions. The first step of any acne treatment involves an evaluation and skin analysis by one of our Licensed Aestheticians or Registered Nurses.
We will factor in your lifestyle, age, skin type, and skin color when developing the acne treatment method that is best for you. We usually recommend a combination of products and techniques to maximize the results over a 3-4 month period. A powerful treatment method for combating acne is Levulan® combined with Blu-U® light therapy.
What is Levulan® + Blu-U® Light?
Blu-U® light acne treatment is the use of blue light energy to target and destroy bacteria that is present in acne lesions. This safe, painless, non-invasive treatment can be combined with Levulan®, a solution that is applied to the targeted area to boost the effects of the Blu-U® light and shrink oil glands for superior acne treatment results. Levulan® and Blu-U® light can also be used to treat actinic keratosis, a precancerous skin condition that occurs due to sun exposure.
Recovery and Results After a Levulan® + Blu-U® Light Treatment?
After applying the Levulan® solution, patients must avoid direct sunlight for at least 48 hours, as their skin will be much more photosensitive. Patients may experience a change in pigmentation where the Levulan® was applied, as well as peeling. This is part of the normal process and should be taken as a positive indication that the treatment is working.
After Levulan® and Blu-U® light treatment, the skin may initially react by pushing out any remaining impurities, causing more acne lesions to come to the surface. After this phase, patients will notice an improvement in the severity of their acne and the appearance of their skin. Treatment results last for approximately four months. Patients may be recommended a series of sessions as part of their acne treatment protocol.
