Photo Dynamic Therapy

Photo Dynamic Therapy

When it comes to your skin, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We recommend photodynamic therapy for sun damaged skin with premalignant changes. And if you suffer with acne, it helps that too.

The treatment is a two stage process. First a photo sensitizer is applied to the skin and allowed to incubate for a period of time determined by our physicians. Incubation times generally range between 15-60 minutes. The second stage involves exposure to light of a specific wavelength for a period of less than 15 minutes.

The beneficial effects of photodynamic therapy can last up to 2 years. The cosmetic response is excellent in over 90% of the people treated with photodynamic therapy.

To find out more about this process and its benefits for your skin, please call to arrange a consultation with one of our qualified clinicians.
