What is Photodynamic Therapy
Photodynamic Therapy is a therapy which uses light in order to induce beneficial reactions in the body, according to their problems. Photodynamic Therapy proves best for skin that’s been severely damaged.
Before Photodynamic Therapy
Before starting the treatment, Glad Aesthetics will prepare your skin by removing oil from its surface. This facilitates the effectiveness of the treatment.
After removing the oil, a chemical called Amino Levulinic Acid is applied to the skin. It needs to be applied at least for an hour, to help the skin produce another natural product by name PPIX. Amino Levulinic Acid gets absorbed by your damaged skin while PPIX makes your skin very sensitive to light at least for a period of two to three days.
Later, the physician will remove the Amino Levulinic Acid from your skin and activate a very bright light with the appropriate color on the surface of your skin. PPIX produced by your skin will absorb the light and destroy all the damaged areas of your skin. This treatment continues beneath your skin for the next three days.
What should I do after Photodynamic Treatment?
You should stay away from bright lights and avoid exposure to the sun for 1-2 days after the treatment. If you get exposed to sun, then it might cause very severe blistering to your skin.
You might be required to use sun block for a long period of time in order to make the treatment most effective. A moisturizer known as Aquaphor can be used until your skin dryness disappears.
Skin Rejuvenation is three times more effective in this treatment when compared to PhotoFacial. If you suffer from very severe skin damage, then you might be required to repeat this treatment every month, in order to achieve the results you desire.
