Woman with perfect skin

Everyone wants to look younger as the signs of aging slowly start to develop. Younger skin has better texture, tone, and volume. It is vibrant, beautiful, and soft to the touch. Patients who think they can never achieve that again have not taken the time to speak to a dermatologist in the Huntington, NY area. Dr. Roger Koreen of Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center is a quality professional who can walk patients through the techniques and tools used to enhance the appearance of the skin. One of the more popular options is photodynamic therapy.

What is photodynamic therapy?

Photodynamic therapy uses a special blue light on the skin after the skin has been prepared with photosensitizing medication called Levulan®. This helps the light penetrate deeper to destroy bad skin cells and reduce the size of pores while improving overall texture and tone. The entire procedure is relatively comfortable for our patients.

What is photodynamic therapy used for?

Photodynamic therapy helps the overall texture of tone of the skin, though it can be extremely beneficial for patients who have a number of concerns. Patients with the following issues may seek treatments with photodynamic therapy and enjoy amazing results:

  • Photoaging
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Pigmentation imperfections
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rosacea

Who is a candidate?

Most patients are appropriate candidates for treatment. This includes patients with richly pigmented skin. Photodynamic therapy may require a short period of social downtime for patients, so this should also be taken into consideration when making an appointment.

How much does photodynamic therapy cost?

Photodynamic therapy is a relatively inexpensive way for patients to use today’s technology to achieve tomorrow’s amazing results. The cost can vary greatly depending on the strength of the treatment and the size of the area being treated. This is why it is important for patients to book a consultation appointment with their dermatologist to get an accurate quote for treatment.
