Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Print

A medically proven, non-invasive cosmetic treatment with an exceptional safety recorded, to treat and reverse visible signs of sun damage and ageing skin.

PDT involves the application of a photo sensitising solution to the skin. This solution is absorbed by abnormal skin cells only. Normal cells are not affected. The solution is left to incubate for several hours or overnight, and then a light source is applied – either an LED light or IPL. the abnormal cells are heated and destroyed, leaving the normal skin untouched.

The affected skin becomes red, crusts appear and heal over the next 5-10 days, revealing a fresh and clearer complexion.

PDT successfully treats a wide range of skin disorders including:

  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines
  • Psoriasis
  • Age spots
  • Pigmentation
  • Oily skin
  • Rosacea

PDT also has a role in the prevention of some skin cancers, reducing the need for very costly and invasive surgical options at a later time in life.
