Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy is a treatment for moderately severe and/or cystic acne using the photosensitizing medication Levulan and blue light. Levulan is absorbed into the sebaceous glands, which play a major role in the cause of acne. Light activation of Levulan causes a temporary destruction of the sebaceous glands and bacteria that results in dramatic improvement in the severity of patients’ acne.

Number of Treatments: 2 to 4


Procedure Length: 2 to 5 Hours

Maintenance: As Needed

Down Time: Sun avoidance for 48 hours

Discomfort: Mild
