What is the Versatility of Photodynamic Therapy or “Blue Light”
Photodynamic Therapy is a non-invasive treatment for some very common skin problems. The revolutionary treatment is not only safe to use, but also works well as an awesome treatment for wrinkles, sun damage, acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and even actinic keratosis lesions.
What is important about blue light skin treatment is that it is highly effective. The process works in two steps. A solution is applied to the treatment area. This solution, which is known as Levulan, is photosensitizing. This means that it becomes reactive to specific wavelengths of light. In this case, a special blue lightwave. Levulan is D-Aminolevulinic Acid that when activated under light therapy targets only cells that are affected. That is why blue light therapy is so effective as a treatment.
It is not uncommon that patients see improved skin tone within the treatment area after just a single session. Most patients require a minimum of three sessions, and some patients require treatment for longer periods of time. Photodynamic Therapy helps to improve the tone and texture of your skin, especially facial skin. The treatments help to reduce large pores and diminish scarring such as acne scars.
