Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

This is a special photorejuvenation treatment performed with the addition of a topical agent called Levulan (5-aminolevulinic acid or ALA).  Your skin absorbs the Levulan which is activated by Clear Light (blue light).  This gives you a more intense treatment to treat the skin cancer lesions.

 

Excellent for treating:

 

Pre-cancerous lesions of the skin (actinic keratosis)

Allow 1.5 to 2 hours for this treatment.

 

Physician referral/recommendation required.
