PhotoDymic Therapy before and after MiamiRejuvenation: PhotoDynamic Therapy (Levulan / Blu-U Light)

PhotoDynamic Therapy is the quickest and most effective way to control acne and clear the skin. Acne creates a cycle of self-consciousness, anxiety, and depression in many individuals. Our goal at DermaCare Brickell, Miami’s top anti-aging and rejuvenation center, is to clear your skin, stop future breakouts, and prevent future scarring.

What is PhotoDynamic Therapy

PhotoDynamic Light Therapy is an especially effective, in-office treatment that controls resistant, hard to treat active acne by combining light and a special light-activated solution called Levulan that targets and destroys acne activity. PDT also diminishes older acne scars, leaving your skin smoother.

How Does PhotoDynamic Therapy Work

In this treatment, Levulan, which is a clear, painless solution is applied to your skin and left on for 5-60 minutes. It is then activated with a specific wavelength of light called Blu-U. This takes about 8-10 minutes.  The Levulan is absorbed by active cells like acne sebaceous glands, making the targeted acne cells more sensitive to the light. This combined interaction of the solution and the light is what gives rise to the term PhotoDynamic Therapy.
