Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

For patients with precancerous skin lesions, superficial skin cancer, or severe acne, our clinic offers the revolutionary Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). This innovative treatment involves a photosensitizing agent combined with exposure to a specific wavelength of light or laser to stimulate a precise reaction that targets and destroys cancerous or precancerous cells.

Unlike surgical procedures or aggressive liquid nitrogen therapy, Photodynamic Therapy is minimally invasive and is often the preferred treatment option for those with diffuse or large areas of affected skin.

Developed by Dr. Touma, our PDT treatment is considered the gold standard for dealing with various cases of precancerous and superficial cancerous lesions. Furthermore, it is an effective solution for those suffering from facial acne; in our experience, it can replicate the effects of a couple of months of isotretinoin treatment without the side effects of this medication

While some patients may experience immediate improvement after a single session, the number of required treatments can differ based on skin type, the number of lesions, and the severity of acne. Nevertheless, patients can expect the skin to heal quickly, with no scarring in just 7 days after the therapy.

After the PDT treatment, patients must avoid exposure to direct sunlight for the next 48 hours. This is crucial as the skin is extremely sensitive during this time and may lead to severe sunburns. If you’re looking for a minimally invasive solution for precancerous skin lesions, cancerous skin growth, or severe acne, PDT is a viable and effective option.
