PDT / Photodynamic Therapy

PDT / Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) combines a topical drug, called a photosensitizer, with a special light source to treat a variety of skin disorders and has recently emerged as an effective treatment for ageing skin. Photodynamic therapy may be recommended to treat actinic keratoses (precancerous skin growths on sun-damaged areas), wrinkles, certain cancers including skin cancer, enlarged sebaceous glands etc. PDT treatment has TGA approval for treatment of superficial basal cell carcinomas. It is used worldwide to treat superficial squamous cell carcinomas and actinic keratosis as well as conditions mentioned above.

Photodynamic Therapy is also used for photo rejuvenation. Click below to find out more about it’s use in our cosmetic services.
