Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

 A picture of a patient receiving Photodynamic Therapy treatment.Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a procedure used to treat actinic keratoses (precancerous lesions), certain types of skin cancer, and acne. The purpose of PDT is to create a chemical reaction that destroys only abnormal cells, while leaving normal cells intact. The treatment consists of application of a sensitizing agent (aminolevulinic acid), which is allowed to absorb for approximately one to two hours, followed by exposure to intense light for 15 minutes. After a short healing time period, new skin cells are allowed to turn over and replace the problem cells.

For your convenience, in addition to our main office in NE Portland, we also provide a second satellite location at The Providence Milwaukie Healing Place building on the campus of the hospital where we see patients throughout the week.
