The Dusa BLU-U 4170 offers effective, non-invasive and pain-free blue light treatment for moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris, a condition affecting millions of adults, teens and children in the United States. Narrow band blue light causes a photodynamic effect within the pylosebaceous gland that kills P. acnes, the bacteria primarily responsible for acne vulgaris.

How Blue Light Treats Acne Vulgaris:

In the treatment of acne vulgaris, 417 nanometer (nm) blue light activates endogenous photosensitizers within the P. acnes bacteria. This creates a toxic bacteriocidal environment in the sebaceous gland that inhibits the obstruction of the sebaceous follicle and formation of acne lesions.

Innovative and Economically Sound:

The BLU-U 4170 is ideal for physician practices experienced in dermatological management of acne, as well as those seeking a new practice expansion opportunity outside of the managed care system. Yet, this robustly built, high quality device is priced for easy affordability.

Effective Treatment:

The BLU-U 4170 utilizes patented, proprietary technology to deliver uniform narrow band blue visible light that efficiently activates porphyrins within the P. acnes bacteria. When used in a series of brief (approximately 16 minutes) exposure sessions, it provides a simple, non-invasive treatment regimen. BLU-U 4170 treatments can be a primary treatment, an alternative to pharmaceuticals and topicals, or an adjunct to skin care programs.

Simplified Design Saves Time:

The BLU-U 4170 emits safe, cool, visible blue light – it is not a laser. It can be easily managed and operated by qualified ancillary staff*, freeing the physician’s time for more demanding patient care tasks. The simplified controls are easy to learn, easy to use, including key-operated on/off, timer control, and indicator lights. The BLU-U 4170 requires little space and operates on standard power. The illuminator is easily adjusted for treatment in the normal sitting or reclining position for flexibility in your daily routine.

The Blue U is FDA Approved to treat actinic keratoses (AKs) and Acne
