Photodynamic Therapy PDT Redlands

Treatment Information

This is a treatment that combines a topical medication – Levulan, and a light source. The treatment is used to reduce redness from sun damage and rosacea as well as to fade sun spots. Another use is to help reduce acne since the treatment reduces sebaceous gland activity. The medication is provided in the form of a stick called a “Kerastick” and it is applied to the area to be treated such as the face, neck and chest. The Levulan is allowed about 30-45min to absorb into the skin before the light (Omnilux) treatment is performed.
