Photo dynamic Therapy (PDT) is a treatment that combines light and a special light-activated topical photo sensitizing agent called Levulan (20% Aminolevulinic Acid ,ALA).
Upon application to skin, Levulan is absorbed by abnormal skin cells, making these cells highly sensitive to specific light wavelengths. The skin is then exposed to Intense Pulse light which destroys these damaged skin cells . PDT can be effective fort:
- Actinic keratosis treatment.
- Prevention of recurrent Actinic keratosis in susceptible patients
- Improvement of superficial wrinkles.
- Reduction of pore size. Rough skin texture.
- Superficial brown solar spots.
- Management of moderate to severe cystic acne.
- Reduction of skin redness and broken and dilated blood vessels
Each facial treatment takes about 20 minutes (plus 60 minutes of Levulan). Treatments are associated with minimum discomfort, little downtime and are done 4 weeks apart.
For resistant cystic acne, a series of 3 to 6 treatments may be needed to control new cyst formation.
For sun damaged skin, drastic improvement is seen after 2-3 treatments.
For Actinic keratosis, most people have complete clearance of lesions in 2-4 sessions.
