During your consultation with our medical team, your individual condition will be evaluated to determine if photodynamic therapy is right for you.
How Does Photodynamic Therapy Work?
This treatment involves the application of a light-activated medication on targeted areas of the skin. The medication is then left to absorb into the skin for a set amount of time depending on the level of skin penetration necessary, and a specific wavelength of light is applied to the area to activate the medication and clear imperfections from the skin. The gentle heat from the light energy also stimulates the skin’s natural skin response, promoting the production of collagen and elastin to increase skin strength and flexibility over time.
Are There Any Side Effects?
One of the main benefits of photodynamic therapy is its ability to penetrate below the skin surface without damaging healthy skin or underlying structures. Slight flushing or redness may develop on treated areas afterward, which typically subsides within several days and without complications. Most patients are able to return to normal activities once post-treatment redness fades.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The level of correction necessary depends on your individual condition, but multiple sessions may be required to achieve full clearance of your skin concerns. During your consultation, our experienced medical team will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your unique skin type and outline a treatment plan to let you know how you can prepare and what you can expect during the process.
