This is my favorite medical spa.  When I visit Santa Barbara this is my go-to for things relaxing. Even if I go in for my medical spa touch-up, I try to enjoy the full-body scrub.  I love this scrub!  I always leave feeling better and a bit more confident.

Frequently Asked Questions about Levulan Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Levulan Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a medical treatment that uses a combination of light and a photosensitizing agent called Levulan to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, sun damage, and precancerous lesions. The Levulan is applied to the skin and left to absorb for a period of time before the skin is exposed to a special light source, which activates the Levulan and destroys targeted cells in the skin.

During a Levulan PDT treatment, the skin is first thoroughly cleaned and the Levulan solution is applied to the affected area. After a period of time, the skin is then exposed to a special light source, which activates the Levulan and destroys targeted cells in the skin. Patients may experience some discomfort during the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated. After the treatment, patients will need to avoid sunlight and bright indoor light for 48 hours.

The results of Levulan PDT can vary depending on the specific skin condition being treated and the severity of the condition. Some patients may see improvement in their skin within a few days, while others may require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results. It’s important to consult with our trained and experienced medical professional to determine the best treatment plan and expected results for your specific skin concerns.
