Photodynamic Therapy

photodynamic therapy

PDT treatments result in the reduction of sun damage, blotchy pigmentation, age spots, brown spots…

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) uses light and a light-sensitive dye to treat multiple skin conditions. Amino levulinic acid (ALA) is first applied to the skin.

When ALA is then exposed to the appropriate ultraviolet light source, it is activated. PDT ensures high precision by targeting only the tissue in and near the treatment area.

PDT treatments work by light activation of ALA and result in the reduction of all manifestations of sun damage, including blotchy pigmentation, rough age spots (actinic keratoses), brown spots, as well as reducing redness and eliminating blood vessels.

Photodynamic therapy offers the best treatment of moderate to severe sun damaged skin.
