Photodynamic Therapy (Levulan) in Chattanooga

Levulan Kerastick Photodynamic Therapy is the latest advance in acne and actinic keratosis treatment.

Photodynamic Therapy for Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratosis (AK) is a skin condition indicated by the appearance of rough-textured, dry, scaly patches on the scalp or face. It is important for those with AK to receive treatment as the condition can lead to cancer.

During photodynamic therapy, Levulan Kerastick Topical Solution is applied to the AK. The solution is then absorbed by the AK cells where it is converted to a chemical that makes the cells extremely sensitive to light. When the AK cells are exposed to the BLU-U Blue Light Illuminator, a reaction occurs which destroys the trouble spots.

Photodynamic Acne Treatment

Levulan Kerastick Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is the most recent advance in acne treatment. This therapy involves the topical application of Levulan and the use of the BLU-U Blue Light Illuminator.

Levulan acne treatment combats acne in multiple ways. It inactivates the bacteria that trigger acne, exfoliates the skin to unclog pores and shuts down the sebaceous glands in the skin which are the main culprit of acne formation.
