Photodynamic Blue Light Therapy
 

Pre-cancerous Cells and Acne Bacteria


This therapy uses a photosensitizing agent that is activated by intense pulse light and blue light therapy resulting in significant improvement in pre-cancerous conditions, sun-damaged skin and cystic acne. It also improves wrinkles, pore size, skin texture, pigmentation, Rosacea and Sebaceous Hyperplasia.


This is one of the industry's most recent procedures for facial rejuvenation, facial peeling and the treatment of acute acne. It is also used to treat Actinic Keratoses (pre-cancerous scaly lesions), Sebaceous Hyperplasia (overgrowth of fine bumps most commonly on the forehead) and various other skin lesions.


Photodynamic Therapy with Levulan for treatment of:

• Removing precancerous skin lesions
• Preventing skin cancer
• Improving wrinkles
• Improving pores
• Improving skin texture
• Improving pigmentation
• Treating moderate to severe cystic acne
• Treating Sebaceous Hyperplasia

 

Procedure Details:

• A skin care specialist or the doctor will apply the medicine.
• After one hour you will have a PhotoFacial™ treatment with IPL (intense pulse light).
• You may be given an anesthetic topical cream applied prior to the light exposure.
• You will be given special goggles to wear to protect your eyes during the IPL treatment.
• During the treatment you may feel stinging, tingling, prickling, or burning of the lesions, but this should go away after the treatment.
• You should stay out of the sun and bright light as much as possible for the next 48 hours.
• The skin will turn red and swollen in the following three to seven days.
• Some crusting and peeling may be noted.
• There should be some discomfort, but no significant pain.
• After one week, there might be some residual redness that will subside after a few days and can be covered with makeup.
 

Blu-U® Light Therapy
The Blue-U® is a very special blue light that can kill the p. acnes bactemit in your skin. Treatments are simple—you sit with your face close to the light for a short time, usually a 15 minute session, about twice per week. Treatments generally continue for five weeks. The process is very safe; it is not hot or painful at all.

 

The Blue Light Treatment is not a laser. It emits safe, cool visible blue light to provide the desired results.
