Stop hiding Behind Your Adult Acne: Innovative BLU-U Light Treatment Can Help

When acne affects people in their 30s, 40s, or 50s, it can be especially frustrating and even embarrassing. If you have adult acne, you may wonder why this is happening at this stage in your life when you thought these days were far behind you. Or maybe you’re a teen who is struggling with acne and aren’t sure what to do.

Why do adults get acne?

The reasons for adult acne vary. In women, hormone fluctuations during their monthly cycles, pregnancy, or even menopause can lead to breakouts. Both men and women can get acne from stress because stress hormones can stimulate oil glands and hair follicles in the skin.

Some people’s acne stems from genetics or from reactions to the food they eat, the medications they take, or the products they use. Always look for health and beauty products that won’t clog pores. The labels should say “oil-free” or “noncomedogenic” on the label. You may also have an underlying health condition contributing to your acne.

If your frustration with acne has been growing, it’s time to seek treatment. Antibiotics or topical creams and gels may help. But you have other options. At Apex Dermatology in Westlake Village, California, our team treats both teen and adult acne with BLU-U® blue light therapy under the expert guidance of our founder, Dr. Karin Harp.

How does BLU-U blue light therapy work?

When you come into our office for your consultation, one of our providers reviews your medical history, examines your acne, and determines a plan of action. For example, BLU-U can be used in conjunction with medications, if necessary.
