PDT involves firstly a consultation with our Doctor or one of our nurses to ensure you are suitable for this procedure. We would then arrange a short appointment for the application of the ALA. A minimum of 3 hours is required before we do an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment which takes around 30min.
PDT treatment is very safe. ALA is a natural product found in humans throughout the body. There are no systemic side effects and no scarring. For more information book in a consultation.
