PDT San Diego
Advances in cosmetic medicine have led to the development of a non-invasive procedure that treats many common skin care concerns. Photodynamic Therapy is a revolutionary procedure that safely and effectively treats acne, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, sun damage and actinic keratosis (precancerous skin lesions).
The treatment process for this procedure involves two steps. The first step involves the application of a clear, photosensitizing agent known as Levulan also known as D-Aminolevulinic Acid. This topical solution is then activated with a specific light source. Red light, blue light or intense pulsed light (IPL), are the primary wavelengths of light that are used. This is a highly precise procedure that only targets the affected cells.
Most patients require a minimum of three or more treatments that are spaced 3-4 weeks apart. You can expect to see noticeable results after each subsequent treatment. The texture and tone of your skin will be significantly improved following treatment. Large pores will also be minimized and the appearance of acne scars will be reduced. In addition to improving the appearance of moderate to severe acne, Photodynamic Therapy can also treat other skin concerns, including rough patches of skin, actinic keratosis, sun damage, uneven skin and hyperpigmentation.
