PDT or PhotoDynamic Therapy uses light of differing wavelengths to target different cell types and through various photochemical reactions, are able to treat various conditions.
Some of the more popular use of PDT includes
- Skin healing and rejuvenation
- Active Acne
At Eden Medical Aesthetics, we use a strong,consistent and regulated LED light source to achieve this.
Red light works by targeting cells beneath the skin’s surface and stimulating them so that they produce new collagen and fight off breakout causing bacteria.
The Blue LED Light attacks PP-9, producing singlet oxygen. This form of oxygen is very toxic to the acne bacteria that cause acne therefore decreasing acne drastically with absolutely no downtime.
Green Light affects the melanocytes (the cells that produce the melanin, which is the pigmentation in the bottom layer of the epidermis), reducing its production. Over time, spots simply fade away for a younger looking, rejuvenated and more even complexion.
Yellow light is effective in the treatment of skin issues involving redness, such as spider veins and is an ideal therapy for sensitive skin.
