PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY

Discover a convenient way to treat your Actinic Keratoses.

Actinic keratoses (AKs) are rough-textured, dry, scaly patches on the skin that can, eventually, lead to skin cancer. As such, it is important to treat AKs, as it is difficult to determine when or which lesions will progress to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), the second most common form of skin cancer. So, the time to manage your damage is now!

Photodynamic therapy uses a Levulan® Kerastick®, a solution that is absorbed within the skin and is then activated using the BLU-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy Illuminator to treat the pre-cancerous cells. When the solution is activated by the illuminator, it produces a form of oxygen that kills nearby cells.

Photodynamic Therapy provides measurable results with minimal downtime.
