At Segal Vein and Laser, experienced staff members help patients vanquish blemishes with five weeks of safe and effective Blu-U acne treatments. Harnessing the restorative powers of a targeted blue light wavelength, skin specialists oust the tyrannical bacteria that cause acne and impulsive fish-faces. Treatments, which clients undergo twice per week, last about 17 minutes. Patients typically experience no amount of discomfort as the Blu-U technology gradually shoos away mild-to-moderate acne, whiteheads, and blackheads. After each treatment session, an SPF moisturizer replenishes light-washed pores. At the end of five weeks, patients possess a clearer visage with less redness, reduced acne inflammation, and fewer bulls-eye targets for flying pies.
