Photodynamic therapy for acne: Costs and recovery

Photodynamic therapy uses medications called photosensitizers to boost the activity of a light-based skin treatment.

It is a form of phototherapy or light therapy and is becoming more popular as an acne treatment, particularly for severe cases that do not respond to other treatments.

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) may also be effective for other skin conditions, such as sun-damaged skin, precancerous cells, and skin infection.
