PDT (Photodynamic Therapy) is a new and exciting area of interest for dermatologists. Photodynamic Therapy is FDA approved for treatment of precancerous lesions on the face. Many physicians have found it effective for treatment of acne as well. Levulan (20% aminolevulinic acid) is applied to the face and then a light or laser is shined at the affected areas, thereby activating the Levulan. The Levulan is preferentially taken up by the precancerous cells and the sebaceous gland.  Patients must avoid light for 48 hours after their treatment and apply sunblock every 1-2 hours. Please call the office and make an appointment to discuss if Photodynamic Therapy is right for you!
