Photodynamic therapy is celebrated as a powerful rejuvenation technique first used in 1905 as a skin cancer treatment. Its other skin benefits have since come to light, and include treatment for acne, wrinkles, and sun damage among other issues. If considering photodynamic therapy through the best dermatologists in Los Angeles, check out some of its major benefits first:
Targeted Skin Care
This option allows for highly-targeted skincare treatment. Many skin rejuvenation treatments, such as chemical peels, affect areas of the skin that do not require treatment. Photodynamic therapy provides the localized assistance that makes it very possible to address specific issues and enjoy the results.
Because photodynamic treatment is localized, it allows for much faster recovery. Treatment takes little to no downtime, allowing you to resume normal activities quickly rather than waiting weeks for skin to heal.
Photodynamic treatment is a relatively painless procedure compared (again) to chemical peels and similar options. The lack of pain involved also makes for faster recovery time.
Effective Acne Treatment
Acne doesn’t just plague adolescents and teens….it’s also an adult problem many struggle with for years. Photodynamic treatment is hailed as a highly effective acne treatment believed to help normalize the skin shedding process as related to hair follicles, and kill bacteria that causes acne. It is also renowned for its ability to smooth skin texture and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
