Levulan Photodynamic Therapy

Levulan Photodynamic Therapy is an innovative breakthrough therapy for tougher cases of acne. Finally, there is a treatment for difficult cases of acne that does not require oral medication!

This treatment consists of painting a liquid medication on the skin, Levulan, that is then activated by an Intense Pulse Light Technology machine – IPL. This medication is a naturally occurring product that makes the skin sensitive to the light source the doctor or nurse will apply.

Levulan acne treatment involves three mechanisms of action:

  • Eradicating the bacteria that cause acne
  • Exfoliating the skin to unclog pores
  • Shrinking the oil glands in the skin (which can be the root cause in the formation of acne)

This exciting treatment is an excellent alternative to oral medications such as Accutane which can have significant side effects and require a long duration of therapy.

Patients notice:

  • Decreased oiliness
  • Improved texture and smoothness by minimizing pore size

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion improves mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other superficial skin problems. A gentle stream of tiny particles exfoliates the outer layer of skin and provides a fresh, glowing, younger appearance. The particles scrape away the surface layer of aging or damaged skin, which is then brushed off with the microdermabrasion vacuum tool with no need for anesthesia. Multiple treatments are recommended for full effect.

Obagi Blue Peel

The Blue Peel is a mild chemical peel used in combination with the Obagi Nu-Derm Restoration System for clear, smooth, healthy skin. During the peel process, the damaged surface layer of skin is removed, and soon it is replaced with a fresh layer that is smoother, well-toned, more even in color, and has smaller pores. On average two to three peels are required to achieve full skin health.
