Photodynamic skin rejuvenation is now the "gold standard" of non-ablative skin treatments.The most recent advance in PhotoRejuvenation is Levulanic Acid combined with intense pulsed light (IPL), known as photodynamic skin rejuvenation. PhotoRejuvenation improves:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Broken capillaries
- Skin texture
- Sebaceous Hyperplasia
- Moderate to severe cystic acne
- Pre-cancerous skin lesions
How does the treatment work?
An anesthetic topical cream may be applied prior to the light exposure. The technician will then apply the Levulan and you will incubate anywhere from 30 minutes to 8 hours (over several sessions).
Is the treatment painful?
During the treatment you may feel stinging, tingling, prickling, or burning of the lesions, but this should go away about 7 hours after the treatment. There should be some discomfort similar to a sunburn, but no significant pain.
Is there down time associated with this treatment?
Yes, you should stay out of the sun and bright light for 24 hours after the treatment. Over the following three to seven days, the skin will turn red and swollen followed by peeling skin. After one week, there might be some residual redness that will subside after a few days and can be covered with makeup.
