Photodynamic Therapy - Pre-Cancerous

Illustration



Metvix and/or Levulan are simple, non-invasive treatments that consist of the application of cream to the skin followed by exposure to light from a specifically designed lamp. The cells in the affected areas absorb the active ingredient in the cream over the course of 1-3 hours, and when exposed to light (photodynamic therapy), a chemical reaction is activated eliminating precancerous and cancerous cells, as well as reducing acne causing bacteria and minimizing sebaceous gland activity.
