WE ARE TEMPORARILY NOT PROVIDING PDT
Levulan Photodynamic Therapy in Atlanta:
The Levulan Photodynamic Therapy is one of the most recent advances in laser skin therapy. In this treatment, Levulan (5-aminolevulinic acid) is applied to the skin by one of our trained doctors or estheticians prior to your LimeLight Facial. The Levulan is activated by the LimeLight Laser treatment and begins to work its magic. Levulan significantly helps to improve:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduce pore size
- Overall skin tone and texture
- Sebaceous hyperplasia (Oily Skin)
- Liver Spots
Levulan Photodynamic Therapy – A Powerful Treatment:
Additionally, Levulan Photodynamic Therapy has been shown to provide a significant improvement in precancerous conditions such as AKs, actinically damaged skin, sun damaged skin, and potentially superficial skin cancers.
How Levulan Photodynamic Therapy Works:
Levulan is applied to the skin by one of our trained doctors or estheticians. You will then need to wait for 45- 60 minutes while the medicine starts to take effect. After this incubation period the Levulan will be activated by the LimeLight Facial. Application of Levulan allows imperfections and blemishes to be selectively targeted and destroyed without causing any damage to the surrounding skin. The Levulan will increase the results of the LimeLight facial by nearly 500%, allowing dramatic results from a single treatment.
Side Effects of Levulan Photodynamic Therapy:
During the treatment you will likely feel a stinging, tingling, prickling, or burning of the treated area. Some patients have reported that these symptoms plateau in intensity about 6 minutes into the treatment. Most patients do not require the use of painkillers but we do have them available if you need them.
Precautions For After Your Treatment:
You should stay out of the sun and direct light as much as possible for 48 hours after treatment. The skin in the treated area will turn red and swell slightly around 3-7 days after treatment and some crusting may be noted. After a week, there may still be some residual redness but it should subside within a few days and can be easily covered by makeup.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results but additional treatments may be recommended depending on the condition of your skin and the severity of the problems you wish to have treated.
Cost of Levulan Photodynamic Therapy:
At Look Young Atlanta we offer Levulan Photodynamic Therapy for $500 for the face or $800 for the face and neck. We also offer a microdermabrasion add-on for $50 (a $90 value). When performed before your LimeLight facial, microdermabrasion significantly improves the results of your treatment by removing dead skin and impurities, allowing the photofacial to target the imperfections on your skin with greater accuracy and effectiveness.
