Photodynamic Therapy

What is Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic Therapy is a combination treatment offered at The Rosenthal Clinic.  It includes a topical application of a photosensitizing agent such as aminolevulinic Acid and then activated in the skin using light therapy such as BLU-U light or IPL.

Photodynamic Therapy typically includes a series of treatments scheduled monthly. This treatment is best suited for fall and winter climates, when exposure to sunlight is lowest.

Acne, sun damaged skin and pre-cancerous skin changes (actinic keratoses or AK’s) can be effectively treated using Photodynamic Therapy. The skin will improve to have a more even coloured tone with smaller pore size and smoother texture.
