Photodynamic Acne Therapy San Francisco | acne removal What is Photodynamic Acne Therapy (PDT)?

Photodynamic acne therapy (PDT) is the application of Levulan (aminolevulinic acid) in conjunction with the BLU-U light to treat moderate to severe acne in light to medium skin tones. PDT treatment inactivates the bacteria that triggers acne, exfoliates the skin to unclog pores, and alters the production of oil in the skin. PDT can produce a long-lasting improvement and is a very safe alternative to Accutane treatment. Typically a series of 4-6 treatments is recommended.
