Acne/Rosacea

Photodynamic therapy with the Cutera IPL 560® and Levulan®

Levulan® is the most advanced therapy for skin rejuvenation using intense pulsed light (IPL). Levulan®, a photosensitizing agent is applied to the skin and then activated with IPL. This is used to remove pre cancerous skin lesions, prevent skin cancer, improve skin texture and treat cystic acne. IPL with Levulan® may even work in skin that has failed accutane treatment. Acne Rosacea may also be successfully treated with this combination therapy.

Problem skin can also be treated using IPL and Laser Genesis therapies. Used in combination it can reduce the redness and kill the bacteria that causes Acne or Rosacea, while promoting collagen production to lessen scarring.

Call us today to arrange an appointment with the doctor for treatment with this gold standard in non ablative skin care.

Treatment can be done every 6 weeks on the face, and every 3 months on the legs. Cherry hemangiomas (red dots on the body) usually only require one or two treatments.

At our clinic the treatment is done by a physician or under his supervision by a trained nurse.
