What is Photodynamic Therapy?

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a noninvasive procedure that uses a combination of enzymes and light energy to target damaged skin cells. It is an extremely precise treatment that is able to zero in on imperfections without damaging the surrounding skin.

The Benefits of Photodynamic Therapy.

This versatile treatment can help improve a broad range of conditions, from acne scars to pre cancerous skin lesions. One of the primary advantages of PDT is that it requires minimal downtime. This nonsurgical treatment is one of the laser & light treatments we offer at OBI BioAesthetic Institute, as it is more comfortable for patients than other procedures such as liquid nitrogen or ablative lasers. Patients at OBI BioAesthetic Institute can expect to improve the following skin concerns with PDT:

  • Acne
  • Superficial acne scars
  • Some pre-cancerous lesions
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Spider veins
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rough skin texture

What to Expect During Your PDT Treatment.

This noninvasive treatment harnesses the power of light to target your problem areas. First, any surface oils are removed from the skin, and an enzyme solution is applied to the treatment areas. This photosensitizing solution will be left on the skin for 30-90 minutes as you relax. A special light is then applied to the skin, which activates the solution so that only the damaged skin cells are affected.

Your photodynamic therapy treatment should be comfortable, with little to no pain. It is common to feel a slight warming or tingling sensation as the light is applied. It is normal to experience redness and peeling for several days post-procedure, which will subside. It is important to stay out of direct sunlight for 48 hours following treatment.

If You Look Good, You Feel Good.
