Photodynamic therapy is recommended for treating superficial basal cell carcinomas, Bowens Disease, and even nodular basal cell carcinomas. Photodynamic therapy happens to be quite a new procedure that is being effectively used in the treatment of pre-cancerous, cancerous skin lesions and even acne. Nitai Medical & Cosmetic Centre offers the best Photodynamic Therapy in Melbourne that is effective in treating both the individual lesions, and also the field treatment anywhere in the body, for instance, legs, arms, full face, hands, scalp, feet, and décolletage.
This revolutionary modality involves the effective use of a special photosensitizing lotion (5 ALA) that is applied carefully to the damaged or abnormal skin. Once the lotion has been absorbed the doctor uses a customized light source and illuminates it onto the patch of skin that has been treated with the lotion already. This process is known to cause a photochemical reaction that would be destroying metabolically all the active abnormal cells leaving the normal cells practically untouched.
The process requires minimal patient downtime. The procedure is very popular today in the field of cosmetology because it leads to outstanding cosmetic results. It usually necessitates a couple of treatments about two weeks apart. Patients come for an evaluation by the concerned doctor after two or three months post the photodynamic therapy at our clinic in Melbourne.
