PDT (photo dynamic therapy)

The Dermalux Tri Wave MD is medically certified to treat a range of skin related conditions. PDT is available to treat severe acne and skin conditions such as actinic keratosis and superficial skin cancers.

PDT is a treatment that involves light-sensitive medicine and a light source to destroy abnormal cells.

It can be used to treat some skin conditions, as well as certain types of cancer. On their own, the medicine and light source are harmless, but when the medicine is exposed to the light it activates and causes a reaction that damages nearby cells.

This allows small abnormal areas of tissue to be treated without the need for surgery.
