Photodynamic Therapy
Specialised treatments for chronic skin conditions

sun damage skin cancerPhotodynamic therapy (PDT) is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that is now used worldwide. It uses a light-sensitive solution (ALA activator) which is applied to the affected skin.  The skin is then exposed to a specialised light source leading to the destruction of the damaged skin cells.

Photodynamic therapy can safely clear multiple cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions from a large area of skin in a single treatment session. More than one treatment may be required in some cases of severe sun damage or more advanced skin lesions.  PDT is also an effective treatment for acne.

Specialised treatments for sun damage, pigmentation & pre-canerous skin conditions

The therapy uses a light sensitive solution (ALA), coupled with LED light treatment. Some patients experience stinging and redness.  Skin flaking will occur in the days following the treatment and patients should avoid sun exposure.
