PDT (Photo Dynamic Therapy) is a non-invasive treatment for sun damaged skin on the face and body, and is the preferred treatment for elevated sunspots and pre-cancerous lesions. A lotion is applied to the treatment area and allowed to absorb into the skin over a two hour period. The lotion specifically targets sun damaged and unhealthy skin cells only.
This lotion is NOT attracted to normal, healthy skin cells. After absorption of lotion the targeted skin cells become light sensitive. The absorbed lotion is then activated by Red Light, destroying only the pre-cancerous and unhealthy cells and leaving all normal, healthy tissue unaffected. Photo Dynamic Therapy uses light combined with a light sensitive agent to destroy cancer cells.
How many treatments are needed to see results?
Determined by age, skin condition, previous sun exposure, lifestyle and health matters optimal results from Photo Rejuvenation come from regularly scheduled weekly treatments. After a course of treatments the skin continues to improve over an 8-12 weeks period. Maintenance treatments can be scheduled monthly. Photo Rejuvenation may also be effective for healing surface wounds and treating other skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema and fine lines.
When applied to the skin the light energy is converted to cell energy. The light is absorbed by the cells and is dispersed evenly to assist in stimulating collagen, increase fibroblast activity, rejuvenate cellular production and kill acne and inflammation causing bacteria. Helps to accelerate the deep healing and rejuvenation of the skin including burns, dermatitis and acne. A course of Photo Light treatment is recommended.
