Photodynamic Therapy General Procedure

The treatment is very simple, relatively painless, and can be soothing. You will start by having a gel rubbed on your clean skin by a technician or dermatologist. You’ll wear dark glasses to protect your eyes. The handheld IPL device will then be applied directly to your skin. Each session typically lasts 20-30 minutes, but larger areas could take an hour or more.

While most people tolerate the light pulses well, you might feel a slight stinging or prickly sensation during the treatment.

IPL treatments won’t cause immediate or overnight results. Once the bacteria is destroyed, your skin will need time to heal. As the treatments progress, your skin may swell or redden, and if used in conjunction with Levulan, some crusting and peeling may occur until your series of treatments are complete. During your treatment series, your skin will be very sensitive to the sun. Wearing sunscreen, sunglasses, and covering your skin for protection is very important.

Dr. Smith will prescribe a specific protocol for you to follow in order to achieve your desired results.
