What is Photodynamic Therapy?

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a well-established, non-invasive treatment that produces desirable results such as improvement of fine lines, dyspigmentation and sun damage. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a relatively newer treatment method, driven by light and medicine. It is a specially formulated light therapy used to help remove many skin issues”
The medicine and light source are harmless, but when the medicine is exposed to the light, it activates and causes a reaction that damages nearby cells.
This allows small abnormal areas of tissue to be treated without the need for surgery.
PDT can treat a multitude of skin conditions such as acne, inflammation, rosacea, fine lines and large pores. It works at deeper skin levels of the subdermal tissue.
PDT is a highly effective and established treatment for treating skin cancer. It is also a successful treatment for reducing redness and completely rejuvenating the skin from sun damage. Skin texture and tone of the treated area will be remarkably improved.
PDT can help treat the following conditions:

  • Psoriasis
  • Vitiligo
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Acute sinusitis
  • Gastritis
  • Corneal infections
  • Gum disease
  • Certain cancer growths

Reasons to Have Photodynamic Therapy?

One of the most groundbreaking advancements in treating multiple skin conditions is the use of Photodynamic Therapy. This non-invasive technique utilizes precise light beams to target and dissolve abnormal growths without damaging the surrounding tissues. With no scarring or bleeding involved, Photodynamic Therapy offers a quick, safe, and virtually painless treatment option.
Photodynamic therapy can treat areas of your body where light is able to reach.
Photodynamic Therapy can be used for:
  • Treating areas of the body that are difficult to reach.
  • Large areas can be treated.
Photodynamic therapy is perfect for anyone looking for an efficient, less invasive method to eliminate various skin conditions and growths.

Benefits of Photodynamic Therapy

PDT is successful for its precision factor, targeting difficult and sensitive areas without causing any damage to the surrounding healthy cells. This results in minimal scarring and faster healing.
Full benefits of Photodynamic Therapy include:
  • No known long-term side effects.
  • Short procedure.
  • A less invasive and more precise treatment.
  • Minimal scarring.
  • Minimal downtime.

What the Treatment Involves

A photosensitizing agent will be applied to your skin. This will either be a cream or a injection. The agent will be absorbed by abnormal cells/skin conditions only due to the higher metabolism within these cells.
The PDT light will be exposed to the treatment area, the agent will react when mixed with the PDT light. This will be a red color light, similar to a laser light. This high wavelength light will penetrate the skin and it will destroy any abnormal cells or skin conditions. Because the photosensitizer does not accumulate in healthy cells, the process does not damage any surrounding healthy skin cells. You may experience a sensation similar of slight burning but this is reduced by air cooling during the treatment. Local anesthesia can also be used, if you find the treatment uncomfortable. The treated area will need to be covered for around 36 to 48 hours, to keep sunlight away. Your skin may appear red for a few hours. It may possibly peal, however you should fully recover within 1-2 weeks. Common side effects of this treatment are typically mild and temporary including redness and slight swelling.
