Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
Photodynamic therapy, or PDT is a safe and effective treatment for a number of skin conditions including cancerous lesions such as superficial basal cell carcinoma and Bowen’s disease, and Actinic Keratosis (AK’s) – areas of sun damage that are considered pre-cancerous. Increasingly, PDT treatment is also being used to treat patients with acne and oily skin. With PDT multiple lesions and large areas of sun damage can be treated at one time with very little recovery time and without any risk of permanent skin whitening or scarring. There are two types of PDT, Metvix and Levulan.
