Also known as photoradiation therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat skin cancer and other conditions such as acne, rosacea and actinic keratosis. PDT uses a topical photo sensitizer called Levulan along with a light energy source to destroy abnormal skin cells. The Levulan is applied to the skin and incubated for a certain amount of time before it is exposed to light energy to activate the medication and destroy the targeted cells.
Most patients can see the results of PDT after three treatment sessions, usually 2-4 weeks apart from another. PDT can be used along with other treatments (such as intense pulsed light), for maximum effectivness, leaving skin looking healthy and beautiful.
