Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

What is Photodynamic Therapy?

Photodynamic therapy is a very effective modality for the treatment of actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous skin lesions). This FDA approved treatment is performed in the office using a photoactive agent (5-aminolevulinic acid) and a blu-light source. PDT is an alternative to traditional therapies such as liquid nitrogen or patient-applied topical creams.
 
Photodynamic therapy offers the following conveniences:

  • no prescription to fill
  • no daily medication to remember 
  • the treatment is administered by a qualified medical professional
