Levulan Light Therapy is a treatment alternative for patients with actinic keratosis. AK's are considered to be the first step in the development of skin cancer.
This treatment utilizes IPL paired with Aminolevulinic acis (ALA). The treatment is tolerated very well with minimal discomfort and moderate downtime. Patients may need to have two or three treatments at three to four week increments depending upon the skin's condition following initial application. The desired response from treatments shows less recurrence of new sebaceous hyperplasias and sun-damaged lesions, as well as a reduction in size with treated lesions.
