Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is emerging as a leading solution for superficial skin cancers and sunspots, including solar keratosis. Due to the non-invasive and selective nature of the treatment, the potential for scarring and side effects are minimal. The treatment is generally well tolerated.
PDT is effective on a wide range of areas of the body including face, arms, hands, scalp and chest.
PDT treatments involve a simple three part process:
- Skin preparation
- Application of photosensitising cream
- Exposure to a specific light source
Our practices offer three types of PDT (Traditional, Daylight and Aktilite activated). Our doctors who have specialized training in this area, will recommend the most effective treatment to suit your needs.
