What is photodynamic therapy (PDT)?
PDT is a treatment option used for low-risk skin cancers and sun spots. It is a minimally invasive and well-tolerated procedure that is conducted over a short period, including recovery. The cosmetic results are excellent with little risk of scarring, and the therapy can be used cosmetically to reduce pigmentation, reduce the appearance of capillaries and enhance skin texture.
What is it for?
PDT is used mainly for treatment of actinic keratosis, small early basal cell carcinomas and superficial lesions. It can also be used to successfully treat acne, often putting it into remission for months.
