Pre-cancer and Acne Treatments
Now’s the time to Clearly Manage the Damage.
Patients with grade 1 or 2 Actinic Keratoses of the face or scalp can now benefit from Levulan treatments offered to manage pre-cancer (AK’s) and acne.
What is the Levulan Treatment?
The Levulan Treatment offers effective, non-invasive treatment for moderate acne vulgaris (a.k.a. acne), a condition affecting millions of adults, teens and children.
How does the Levulan® PDT System work?
The first step is to have a Levulan® Kerastick® topical solution applied to the acne and the individual Actinic Keratoses on the skin. This solution makes the acne or Actinic Keratoses more sensitive to light, which prepares the skin for the second step in the process.
After leaving the topical solution on the skin for 45-60 minutes, therapy continues with an Intense Pulse Light Treatment. This treatment session lasts 15-20 minutes and can cause minimal discomfort because of the nature of the Levulan® Kerastick® topical solution. This discomfort usually improves immediately after treatment and ends within 24-48 hours.
After treatment is completed, almost all patients experience some temporary reddening and some patients experience minimal swelling of the acne, the Actinic Keratoses and the surrounding skin. Generally all reddening is gone by 1 week after treatment and swelling is reduced or non-existent after 1-2 days.
