New Tools in the Fight Against Skin Cancer
Our dermatologists detect AKs early and now with BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy in conjunction with Amleuz topical solution is a safe and effective way to treat them with no down time.
BLU-U® is a unique two-part treatment that uses a light activated drug therapy to destroy AKs. Amleuz is applied to the AK which absorbs the solution and converts it into a chemical that makes the cells extremely sensitive to light. When the AK cells are exposed to the BLU-U® Blue Light Illuminator, a reaction occurs which destroys the AK cells.

BLU-U® fits your lifestyle:

Patients treated with Amleuz and BLU-U PDT should avoid exposure of the photosensitized lesions to sunlight or prolonged or intense light for at least 40 hours.
BLU-U® for Acne - It’s Not Just a Teen Problem
The BLU-U uses a blue light that kills the P. acnes bacteria in your skin. Treatments are simple - you sit with your face close to the light for a short time, approximately a 17-minute session about once or twice per week. The treatments may go on for five weeks or so. It's safe, it's not hot, it's not painful. And in the end, your face will look fantastic.
