Levulan Photodynamic Therapy is the most recent advance in photo rejuvenation and it available here at Skin NV!

Levulan Photodynamic skin rejuvenation involves the application of Levulan, which is activated with IPL and blue-light so there are no internal side effects.  Your damaged skin then sheds leaving you with new, revitalized skin. This results in significant improvement in precancerous conditions such as AKs, actinically damaged skin, sun damaged skin, moderate to severe cystic acne and potentially superficial skin cancers. Additionally it improves wrinkles, pore size, skin texture, pigmentation, rosacea, sebaceous hyperplasia, and potentially prevents the development of skin cancer!

In addition to the benefits listed above, Levulan is all-natural and produced by your body to make hemoglobin. The uptake of Levulan is by abnormal cells and then targets pre-cancer cells, bacteria and sebaceous glands that produce acne.

Levulan is both easier and less painful for patients than repeated topical liquid nitrogen, or Aldara because the side effects are minimal with rapid healing and usually require only 1-3 treatments. Levulan cosmetically benefits the whole facial area treated with improved clarity, tone, and texture!

Like many procedures and treatments, sometimes more than one treatment may be needed to achieve desired results and maintenance treatments are encouraged to keep your successful results at their best. Many patients like the rejuvenated look they get and the continued improvement over a series of treatments.

After receiving each treatment you should use the skin care regimen that your Skin NV consultant has provided for you. It is important that you avoid sun exposure for the first 2 days following your treatment and then try to avoid prolonged sun exposure and avoid tanning booths completely.

The pros of PDT are plentiful! When administered properly, it has no long-term side effects when used properly, is less invasive than surgery, is usually outpatient, can be targeted precisely and won’t break the bank!
