Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy is a medical treatment that involves a light-emitting device and a light-sensitizing liquid, drug, or cream.  The light sensitizing compound is applied or injected into the area to be treated.  After an incubation period, the area is exposed to specific wavelengths of light that will activate the medication.  The light can then destroy pre-cancerous cells.

Here are some applications for Photodynamic Therapy:
  • Acne reduction
  • Photorejuvenation
  • Treatment of pre-cancerous cells (Skin Cancer)
