Levulan® Photodynamic Acne Therapy at Sky Med Spa

LevulanLevulan® is commonly used in photodynamic acne therapy and has been shown to significantly improve mild to moderate acne. Levulan® photodynamic acne therapy is often an effective alternative for patients whose skin has become resistant to antibiotic treatments over time, and for those who want to avoid the hassle of applying topical ointments and creams.

If you have any visible form of acne that has not responded to standard acne treatments, you may be a candidate for Levulan Photodynamic Therapy. This aggressive photoactive peel provides dramatic results for individuals with extensive sun-damage and rough textured skin. Levulan Photodynamic treatments are ideal for patients with acne or actinic kerasotes (pre-malignant lesions) of the face or scalp.

Levulanic Acid is found naturally in our body. It is applied to the surface of the skin and then activated with IPL using the blue light wavelength. Sun damage, fine Levulanlines, texture and blotchy pigmentation are also improved with PDT. You will also experience a decrease in pore size, and a reduction of oil glands, effectively treating stubborn acne.

Levulan Photodynamic Therapy is typically done in a series of three treatments, although some patients achieve desired results with just one treatment. A few days of down-time will follow a PDT, including redness, swelling, and peeling. Your skin will feel like it is sunburn. It is important to stay out of the sun for at least 48 hours after a treatment but is highly recommended to stay out for 7 days.

Your skin will be smooth and fresh looking. There are virtually no blackheads and the acne scarring is greatly improved.
