Levulan Photodynamic TherapyPhotodynamic Therapy for Rejuvenation

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a new treatment option that combines a special topical medication with laser rejuvenation.  PDT can be combined with different lasers to make treating your brown spots, sun damage, acne, or rosacea more effective.  The result is an extra little boost to make your treatment more effective and further rejuvenate your skin.

Photodynamic therapy uses a clear liquid called aminolevulinic acid which we apply to your skin to enhance the laser treatments.  The liquid concentrates in the damaged and aged skin cells.  Once the aminolevulinic acid liquid is absorbed into the skin, which typically requires about an hour, our Board-certified Dermatologists and laser specialists will then use a laser to “turn on” or activate the liquid.  The treatment itself is quick, safe, and effective at reducing unwanted discoloration, photodamaged and pre-cancerous cells, and rejuvenating the skin.  After the treatment, your skin may appear slightly red, like a sunburn, but there is no significant downtime or healing required.

If you have discoloration or sun damage to your face that you would like to improve, or if you have had previous laser rejuvenation treatments that were not as effective as you hoped, make an appointment today by calling us at (857) 362 7330 to speak with our expert physicians to find out if a PDT treatment might be the extra boost you need.
