Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is an effective treatment for precancerous actinic keratosis. Actinic keratoses are rough, scaly patches that may develop into skin cancers. Many individuals, as they age, accumulate actinic keratoses over sun-exposed areas of the skin.
PDT is a smart and satisfying treatment for patients with sun damage. Patients enjoy a number of unique benefits from this light-based therapy. There are no regular medication or treatment regimens to be followed and no prescriptions to be filled. Treatment requires a short amount of time and is provided in an approved healthcare setting. Studies have shown an improvement in skin smoothing, color, and texture with PDT. No scarring has been reported after use of PDT. Finally, PDT is used effectively to treat subclinical precancers (those that aren’t yet visible), as well as currently visible lesions, thereby improving the health and vitality of the skin over entire sun-damaged areas.
