Patients of Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center enjoy the opportunities they have to address skin concerns successfully through non-invasive treatments. Photodynamic therapy, also called Blue Light Therapy, provides our practitioners with a way to assist patients in the achievement of results in a comfortable, effective manner.
Blue Light Therapy directs specific wavelengths of light to targeted cells on the skin. The procedure may be used to treat a number of concerns, from acne to precancerous lesions. More than light, Blue Light therapy also involves the application of a photosensitizing solution. The light source activates this solution to release an oxygen molecule that destroys unhealthy cells. Essentially, Blue Light therapy selectively destroys tissues in a controlled manner.
This form of treatment has actually been used for more than a century, though the modern procedure has evolved over several decades. Today, Blue Light therapy can be tailored to meet individual needs. After a thorough assessment and consultation, treatment is designed with precise incubation time for the photosensitizing solution. Customization is achieved with the careful choice of light source, which is selected based on the type of cells to be targeted.
