BLU-U® Clinical Indications

The BLU-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy Illuminator is generally indicated to treat dermatological conditions.

In combination with the Levulan® Kerastick® (aminolevulinic acid HCl) for Topical Solution, 20%, the BLU-U is indicated for the treatment of minimally to moderately thick actinic keratoses of the face or scalp.

The BLU-U® is also specifically indicated to treat moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris.

What is Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)?

PDT is the use of light-activated drugs which produce singlet oxygen to treat diseased tissues. The drug undergoes a chemical reaction when light of a particular wavelength and intensity is applied, resulting in a therapeutic effect.

Is the BLU-U® a laser?

No, the BLU-U is not a laser. Lasers deliver light as coherent beams, while the BLU-U delivers incoherent light scattered over a larger area.
