A photodynamic acne therapy treatment is the new kid on the block when it comes to effective, in-office acne treatments. At Avalon Laser we are thrilled to offer this to our acne treatment patients. In short, this acne treatment combines acne medicine with advanced IPL (Intense Pulse Light) therapy for best results.

In the past, acne were combated with just a photo facial alone and it worked. Patients who did not have severe acne would receive just topical medication and likewise, it worked. However, this treatment is not only even more effective but fast. The Photodynamic Acne Therapy treatment combines these two acne procedures for best and quick results. This procedure is especially effective on patients with severe acne who also suffer from cystic acne as well as acne scars.

During this procedure the acne medication called Levulan is first applied to the surface of the face. Next, the IPL or photo facial technology is applied to the skin, making it absurd the medication faster, killing bacteria and correcting pores deep within the surface. So far, this acne treatment is one of the best innovations when it comes to combating severe acne problems.

The sensation during the Photodynamic Acne Therapy treatment can be a little uncomfortable, but it is not painful. Once IPL is applied it often feels like small rubber bands are being snapped on top of the surface of the skin. However, recovery is minimal and acne disappear fast.

As a leading San Diego medical spa, we strive to bring the best and most innovative facial rejuvenation and acne treatments to our San Diego patients. This therapy is by far the most effective and we are thrilled to see wonderful and fast results for San Diego acne treatment patients who are desperate for help.
