Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

 

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is the latest medical innovation to treat moderate to severe acne without the use of oral medication. A topical agent called Levulan® is applied to the patient's face and is then activated with the correct wavelength of light. The activated byproduct then destroys the bacteria responsible for causing acne as well as suppresses sebum production by the sebaceous glands.

 

This treatment is relatively painless. Patients must avoid sun exposure for 48 hours immediately after the treatment. Peeling and crusting can sometimes last up to a week. A series of 2-3 treatments at one month apart is recommended to achieve the best result.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) can effectively treat

  • Stubborn acne vulgaris
  • Enlarged pores
  • Oily skin
  • Acne blemish
