Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) in Fort Myers, FL

Photodynamic therapy is a technique that can treat acne, rosacea, and even skin cancer symptoms. Florida Skin Center offers this and other dermatology treatments to residents of Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, and Fort Myers, Punta Gorda, FL and surrounding areas. 

What is Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)?

Photodynamic therapy is an advanced skincare treatment that uses blue light energy to target bacteria and other unwanted cells in the skin. While it is most often used as an acne treatment, it is also an effective treatment for overactive oil glands and precancerous growths. At Florida Skin Center, we use the BLU-U® Blue Light for photodynamic therapy.

Can PTD Be Used for Photorejuvenation?

Although primarily used for the treatment of acne and precancerous growths, photodynamic therapy does produce benefits when used as a photorejuvenation treatment. With PTD, guests can enjoy tightened skin, reduced wrinkles, and improved tone and texture.

What Can I Expect from Treatment?

Photodynamic therapy is a treatment that lasts approximately 20 minutes, and is comfortable for the duration. You can expect to resume normal activities immediately after your treatment. You may experience some peeling, redness, or dryness of the skin for a few weeks following your treatment. This is a natural step in the healing process, and moisturizers can be used if you desire. You will notice gradual improvements in the skin over the weeks following treatment, although some guests may need multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired results.

How Much Does Photodynamic Therapy Cost?

In order to determine the exact cost of your treatment, we invite guests to schedule an appointment so that we can develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy both your health and cosmetic goals. Once a treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide a clear breakdown of costs. To make our services accessible to those who need them, we offer flexible financing and payment options. We also accept insurance when applicable.

If you would like to achieve improved skin tone and other rejuvenation benefits, you may want to consider photodynamic therapy at Florida Skin Center.
