Benefits

Method

A naturally occurring topical preparation is applied to the skin and taken up by sun damaged and precancerous cells.

Normal skin is unaffected. After overnight incubation, specific red and blue light is shone on the skin which photoactivates the chemical and causes destruction of the sun damaged and precancerous cells.

Usually 2 treatments 4 weeks apart are required.

PDT is available only after consultation with the doctor to determine your suitability.
