WHAT IS PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY?
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a treatment for killing acne activity. It is suitable for cases of mild to severe acne and acne scarring. During the treatment process, a photosensitizing agent called 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is applied to the skin and becomes activated when put under a specific wavelength of light. Once activated, the ALA is absorbed by acne cells making acne more receptive to bacteria-killing light. Since ALA is hydrophilic, it requires a longer penetration period, thus requiring 1.5 days of avoiding sun exposure.
We offer a natural alternative by replacing the ALA solution with a solution composed of vitamins and amino acids. This natural solution penetrates faster with high efficacy while causing no harsh side effects. By using the natural photosensitizer, the activation and duration of post-treatment sun avoidance are both shortened.
