I have heard of Blu-U light treatment for acne, how does it work?

Blu-U blue light treatments can kill the bacteria that produces outbreaks of acne. Sitting in front of the light for 15 minute sessions once or twice weekly are recommended. The number of treatments are regulated by Dr. Bakala. Blu-U treatment combined with the action of Levulan (a naturally occuring photosensitizing compound, approved by FDA and Health & Welfare Canada for treatment reduce acne significantly, improving texture and minimizing pore size)speed up the process, and requires 2 – 3 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart for maximal benefit.
