PDT

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, and treatment administration by a qualified medical professional.
