Photodynamic Therapy PDT

PDT (Photodynamic Therapy) is a very effective treatment for those who suffer from moderate to severe acne and want to avoid taking Accutane. It works by combining a photosensitizing solution called Levulan Kerastick and then activating it with IPL light therapy. In return, the Levulan activates the bacteria that triggers acne, exfoliates the skin, unclogs pores and reduces the activity of the oil glands.

Although the mechanism of action of PDT is very similar to that of Accutane, it does not possess the side effects often associated with medicine. Instead, it specifically reduces the acne producing bacteria and cells in the skin.

PDT is also a successful treatment for rosacea, rough pigmented skin patches, large pores, wrinkling and pre-cancerous actinic keratosis (AKs).

Depending on the skin condition, a series of 3 to 5 treatments on are needed to achieve significant results.

Fraxel® Laser Treatment

The Fraxel® Laser approach utilizes fractionated technology to delve beneath the skin’s deepest layers to clear acne, repair deep dermal levels and boost collagen growth. The new collagen thickens, firms and fills the skin, reducing the appearance of acne scarring.

The number of Fraxel laser sessions needed merely depend on your skin condition. In general, most conditions require a series of three to five sessions to achieve the best results.

Engineered with a revolutionary 1726 nm wavelength, AviClear™ is the strongest FDA-approved device for treatment of mild, moderate and severe acne. Using the power of laser light, the treatment specifically targets the source of the oils on the skin, suppresses sebaceous glands, and eliminates acne without the need for prescription medications.

Who can benefit from AviClear™ Laser

Clinical studies showed that 87% of patients saw at least half of their acne clear at 6 months after the final session. On average, only three treatment sessions – spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart – are needed.
