Levulan Photo Dynamic Sarasota
For elimination of pre-cancer and control of active acne
Levulan® Photodynamic Therapy is an advanced treatment option for elimination of actinic keratosis (pre-cancer that ultimately becomes squamous cell skin cancer) and control of active acne. Levulan® is a pro-drug (inactive drug that requires activation for effect) made by DUSA Pharmaceuticals.
Levulan® Photodynamic Therapy involves topical application of Levulan® to the treatment area, a brief waiting period (for drug absorption) and then activation of the drug with a 420 nm (blue light) photorejuvenation treatment. This treatment is temporarily very photosensitizing – patients must avoid the sun completely for 48 hours to avoid rapid sunburn.
While significant improvement may result from a single treatment, a series of treatments may be necessary for optimum results.
