Blu-U technology is used in our Fremont office for a plethora of skin problems. Photodynamic treatment using BLU-U involves a 17-minute session of exposing your skin to a blue light.
After assessing your skin’s problem areas, a doctor may recommend BLU-U to treat acne and actinic keratoses (AKs), also known as precancerous skin lesions.
AKs are unsightly, but they can also be sinister. They have the potential to progress to squamous cell carcinoma, the second most common type of skin cancer.
Candidate For BLU-U
As there is no way to test which AKs are malignant, seeing a dermatologist when they appear is an important preventative measure. If you notice these changes in your skin, or simply suffer from adult acne, contact our offices to see if you are a candidate for BLU-U therapy.
