Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) involves the use of Blu-U blue light to activate a photosensitizer (Levulan, ALA). The Levulan topical solution is applied and then absorbed by the AK cells where it is converted to a chemical that makes the cells sensitive to light. Exposure to the Blu-U light causes reactions that destroy the AK cells.

Topical PDT is effective in treating certain non-melanoma skin cancers and there are several studies suggesting its potential in treating acne, photoaging, viral warts, and morphea. It offers high cure rates with excellent or good cosmetic outcome and is generally well tolerated by patients.

All of our treatments are Supervised by Dr. Abida Usman, MD.
