Daylight Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

This is a treatment for individual Actinic Keratosis or fields of solar damage. It involves the application of a photo-sensitising gel and the use of daylight to activate this gel. The gel helps start a process in the damaged cells which helps destroy them while leaving the healthy skin intact.

In addition to treating actinic keratosis, daylight PDT also provides an excellent cosmetic result, as pigmentation is reduced, lines are minimised and the overall skin looks fresher and brighter.

If you have an appointment with us, we will provide you with a all the information needed to help guide you through the procedure.

PDT SEASON IS NOW IN FULL SWING.
