Aktilite®

PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY

INDICATIONS:
• Pre-cancerous lesions, such as Actinic Keratosis;
• Some types of skin cancers;
• To decrease the secretion of sebaceous glands.

This treatment modality combines a topical product (ALA = aminolevulinic acid or MAL = methyl aminolevulinate) with light emitting diode (LED) e.g. Aktilite®. The reaction caused by the combination of the topical product with the emitted laser light removes cancerous cells of the skin and significantly reduces the functioning of the sebaceous glands. Photodynamic therapy also rejuvenates the skin and improves excessive skin oiliness and its various consequences (acne, sebaceous hyperplasia, dilated pores).
