The PDT process for each client is basically the same. The skin is prepared and a solution, called Levulan, is topically applied to the skin. It is left on the skin for an incubation period. The solution is absorbed by the targeted lesions and a light then activates the solution which destroys the targeted cells. When used in conjunction with the blue light we can target the sebaceous glands and bacteria responsible for acne

The treatment takes approximately 60-90 minutes to complete and you can expect some redness, peeling and flaking of the skin for 3-4 days. While under the light source you will feel some warmth. It is important to know that you will need to stay indoors for 24 hours following the procedure. The solution applied to your skin remains active for this period of time.

If you are struggling with acne you must look at this new and exciting procedure. The number of treatments depends on the severity of the acne although most clients will go into remission with 3 treatments (6-12 weeks from the first treatment).

CHANGED MY LIFE
originally went in for laser, which is going amazingly well, so professional. However when I was there this lovely team began to help me with my skin on my face, something I had unfortunately accepted thinking it was like that for the rest of my life
After waiting over 12 months to see a dermatologist that did nothing, I broke down in tears when I realised laser aesthetics could help. My skin is now clear and so healthy looking and did not cost a fortune either. The staff are so friendly and helpful and truly understand the emotions involved regarding ones skin.

I have seen both Nurses Sue and Dani for my Botox and Filler. I come back every time and refer all my friends. They are extremely professional as well as kind. After having bad experiences with other clinics around this area i go to Laser Aesthetics for all my cosmetic procedures.
