The use of Levulan/Aminolevulinic Acid 20% with blue wavelength 405nm is approved by the FDA for the treatment of Actinic Keratoses or “precancerous” lesions. The benefit to preventively reducing these lesions is to decrease the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma.
This treatment may also give additional benefits of minimizing pores, reducing oil glands, treating acne, reducing acne scars, as well as reducing the overall sun damage accumulation. It may result in smoother, softer skin and a more even skin tone.
The expected effect of the therapy is to see an intense “sunburn” like reaction, which may be red and itchy, with swollen skin that may develop scaling and scabbing. Peeling may also occur after 3-4 days. Over the next several days to weeks, you will see the skin heal with softer, smoother, and firmer texture, the appearance of less discoloration and uneven skin tone. Permanent scarring or disfigurement DOES NOT occur with this treatment. Not following instructions may result in unexpected outcomes.
