Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic Therapy Treatment

Welcome to our advanced Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) treatment, an exciting FDA-approved option available in North America. Get ready to witness truly remarkable results as we help you achieve improved skin texture, minimized pores, and a reduction in brown and red spots caused by sun damage.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is an innovative and advanced skincare treatment that uses a special combination of light and a safe, light-sensitive solution to improve your skin's health and appearance. During the procedure, the solution is applied to the targeted area of your skin, and then a specific light is used to activate it. This interaction helps to target and destroy unwanted skin cells, bacteria, and other skin issues while leaving the healthy skin unharmed. PDT is effective for various skin concerns, such as acne, sun-damaged skin, and precancerous lesions. It's a non-invasive and well-tolerated procedure that offers exciting results, helping you achieve a smoother, more radiant complexion and boosting your confidence in your skin's appearance.

Experience the life-changing impact of PDT on various types of acne. View our before and after photos showcasing the effectiveness of PDT in tackling acne concerns.

The PDT Process: Gentle and Effective

The PDT process is a gentle yet powerful treatment tailored to each client's needs. We begin by carefully preparing your skin, followed by the topical application of Levulan solution. The solution is left on the skin during an incubation period, allowing it to be absorbed by the targeted lesions. Once activated by light, the solution works its magic, selectively destroying the targeted cells. In combination with blue light, we effectively target sebaceous glands and acne-causing bacteria.

Your PDT Experience: What to Expect

The treatment takes approximately 60-90 minutes to complete. Afterward, you may experience some temporary redness, peeling, and flaking of the skin for 3-4 days, accompanied by a gentle warmth while under a light source. For optimal results, it's essential to stay indoors for 24 hours following the procedure as the solution applied to your skin remains active during this time. Our expert team will be there to ensure your comfort and well-being throughout the entire process.

Transform Your Skin: Your PDT Journey

For those dealing with acne concerns, PDT presents a promising and exciting solution. The number of treatments required varies depending on the severity of your acne, but most clients achieve remission with just 3 treatments (6-12 weeks from the first treatment). Connect with our skilled Registered Nurses for a consultation and embark on your path towards clearer, healthier skin.

BTL EMSELLA is a new service now being offered here, and if you are someone like me who has lived her life with too many bathroom breaks, I would recommend giving this treatment a try. I have dealt with a sensitive bladder for most of my life, and to say the least, this has been inconvenient. I was getting up at least once a night and whenever I was out looking for the closest washroom. When I heard about this treatment being offered, I decided to give it a try. Six sessions over 3 weeks. Nothing invasive or painful. My experience so far has been liberating in that I am no longer having an interrupted sleep and can wander the mall for a few hours before scoping out the nearest washroom. In my opinion this has been totally worth it.

the BEST laser hair removal ever. I am so happy with my results, it has genuinely changed my life. I had issues my whole life shaving and getting insane irritation, but after a few sessions here my hair barely grows anymore. and it’s been about a year since I’ve had any treatments- still barely any hair growth. I went to a different med spa first and had 8 laser hair removal sessions which did nothing to reduce my hair growth. Then came to this clinic and i saw results after my first session. i’m telling you the laser is very effective and the technician is VERY thorough and gets all the spots. 10/10 if you want results and hair reduction give this a try I would recommend to everyone!!

I have been a loyal client for years and this review is long overdue. The entire team at Laser Aesthetics are not only consummate professionals but I feel like I’m talking to old friends from the moment I call to book an appointment. Sharon the administration manager is an absolute sweetheart and will do whatever she can to accommodate my appointment requests even though they are understandably busy. The clinic is modern and spotless and has been maintained impeccably over the years. Sue is the owner and has been doing my injections since my late 20s. She is an absolute artist and innovator and has been at the top of the industry for years now. Never once has she pressured me or been heavy handed in her treatments. She gives insightful and honest consults and I trust my face to her and no one else. I moved to LA for a couple years and saw several top injectors during that time only to be injured and/or disappointed each time. I’m am thrilled to be back in the GTA and back to trusting the team at LA. Over the years I have also been a huge fan of their state of the art Laser Hair Removal, skin treatments and facial services. I also have used their skincare line exclusively for 10+ years. An absolute gem in the heart of Burlington. 🙏💕
