What is Photodynamic Therapy?

Rejuvenate
Your Skin

This revolutionary medical treatment can be used for acne and anti-aging, and consists of multiple steps:

  1. A light-activated medication is applied to the skin
  2. The drug is allowed to settle into treated areas for a set amount of time
  3. The targeted area is then exposed to a specific wavelength of light

During this process, the light energy penetrates below the skin surface and stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, generating healthy skin cells and tissues. Photodynamic therapy is ideal for treating actinic keratosis, acne, and many other conditions.
