Photodynamic therapy for damaged skin
The practitioners of Physicians Laser and Dermatology Institute offer experience and precision in the use of PhotoDynamic Therapy (PDT) for targeted removal of skin cells that have been damaged by age and sun.
Photodynamic Therapy involves the application of a clear, odorless, light-sensitive solution to skin areas where pre-cancerous cells, blotchiness, and enlarged pores appear. Laser or light then triggers the photo-activated drug to destroy cells, smooth skin texture, and reduce visibility of pores.
PLDI professionals use Photodynamic Therapy to treat actinic keratosis, actinic chelitis, and acne. Secondary benefits of skin rejuvenation often occur in the course of treatment. Side effects are minimal, and PDT beautifully complements and enhances the results of non-ablative laser or light treatment.
