Acne affects people of many different ages and many different skin types. If you are a patient in the San Francisco, San Mateo and surrounding California areas and want to take control of your acne, Serenity MedSpa offers Levulan.
What is Levulan?
The Levulan (5-aminolevulinic acid, or ALA) Photodynamic Therapy system is an advanced 2-step treatment for moderate to severe acne conditions. The first step is to topically apply ALA, a substance that occurs naturally in the body, to the treatment area. The ALA is selectively absorbed into fast-growing, rapidly metabolizing epidermal cells. The second step is to irradiate the treatment area with blue light for several minutes after about an hour incubation period.
This combined acne treatment is safe, appears to work faster than laser or light therapy alone, and requires fewer treatments. In some patients, this combination may eliminate the need for more intensive systemic therapies.
