With today’s technology and the field of medicine, patients can benefit from advanced therapies to improve their skin and body. Many med spas, including NaturallYou, are integrating this technology into their practice to help patients with a wide range of aesthetic concerns. This includes the use of photodynamic therapy to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. Cos Cob, CT area patients considering the benefits of photodynamic therapy are welcome to schedule an evaluation and find out if this treatment is right for their needs. 

What is photodynamic therapy? 

Photodynamic therapy, often referred to as “PDT,” is a desirable way to address a wide range of skin concerns. It is often used for patients who want to correct or improve: 

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Aging skin (fine lines and wrinkles)
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Actinic keratoses
  • Enlarged pores
  • Complexion
  • Texture and tone

Photodynamic therapy is a light-based treatment that can provide dramatic results with several treatment sessions. It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of actinic keratosis, and provides a plethora of other benefits to those who undergo treatment. With the help of our team at NaturallYou, patients can find out if they are a good candidate for this therapy to achieve the desired results. 

What can I expect from my appointment? 

During PDT, patients will relax on the treatment table. A specialized, FDA-cleared device is run along the skin and emits light energy that can penetrate deep within the lower layers of the skin. This can help in clearing pigmentation issues across the face or reduce the signs of aging. It is also used on patients who have had extensive sun exposure and damage that can leave them at a much higher risk of developing skin cancer, almost as a preventative! The treatment is comfortable and patients can return to their day with little to no interruption.
