What is photodynamic therapy?

Photodynamic therapy combines the topical application of a medication that is selectively absorbed by certain cells and then use of a light (red or blue) to activate the medication and selectively destroy these cells.

What conditions can be treated with photodynamic therapy?

Actinic keratoses which are precancerous lesions, superficial basal cell carcinoma, and Bowen’s disease or squamous cell carcinoma insitu are the most commonly treated lesions.

What happens following treatment?

Areas with precancerous or cancerous cells should become red and inflammed and then may turn scaly or crusty. The skin normalizes over the next 1-3 weeks.
