Photodynamic Therapy is indicated for treatment of acne and minimally to moderately thick actinic keratosis.
If you have moderate acne and are uncomfortable taking antibiotics or are unhappy with your current topical treatment results, blue light therapy may be something for you to try. This Acne treatment is fairly simple. You sit with your face close to the light for approximately 17-minutes once or twice per week. The treatments may go on for five weeks or so. It’s safe, it’s not hot, it’s not painful. After some weeks, the blue light can help control your acne.
Actinic Keratosis (AK) if left untreated may progress into squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), the second most common form of skin cancer. This 2-part treatment is unique because it uses a blue light to activate the Ameluz or Levulan solution into a chemical toxic to AK cells.
