PDT Hair Fall Control With PDT Therapy:
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a three-step treatment used to treat mild or serious conditions of the skin through the use of a photosensitizing drug and a light source to activate it. PDT destroys abnormal cells that cause actinic keratosis, a pre-cancerous condition, and can also minimize pores and reduce oil glands to treat acne, rosacea and some scarring as well. During the PDT procedure, a topical photo sensitizer called Levulan is applied to the skin and left for an incubation period of several minutes to several days. Levulan is made of aminolevulinic acid (ALA), a natural substance found in the body. After incubation, the Levulan is activated with a wavelength light source. Patients may experience sensations of warmth, tingling, heat or burning during this part of the treatment. After light activation, the treated area is washed and patients can return home, and most return to work within one to two days after the procedure.
