Blue Light Treatment (Photodynamic therapy)

What is Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)?

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) utilizes a blue light in order to kill the bacteria responsible for acne breakouts. This non-invasive t procedure has allowed us success in terms of clearing acne as well as improving the texture of the skin. PDT also helps to diminish the appearance of red and brown spots that may linger after an acne lesion disappears. The procedure can be used in tandem with other types of treatments as well as a specially designed skin care regimen.
Photodynamic therapy for acne works best when patients receive three to five treatments spaced approximately 3-5 weeks apart. We highly recommend avoiding sun exposure for up to 48 hours post treatment.
