Photodynamic Therapy is a non- invasive treatment that both medical and cosmetic patients are enjoying today. The results are remarkable. Patients experience textural improvements, pore minimizations, and enhanced reduction of brown and red pigmentation that is evident in sun damaged skin. The treatment is for sun damage, pre-cancerous lesions or acne. The solution (Levulan PDT) is applied topically (directly onto the skin) to targeted lesions. A light or laser source is then used to activate the solution and the targeted cells are destroyed.
Blue Light therapy is also used for acne. This procedure improves acne by targeting sebaceous glands and bacteria which are destroyed in the PDT treatment by the blue light.
