In brief: Redness mild burning
In pdt, a medication is administered to reach a target tissue.
Light of a specific wavelength is then used to activate the medication causing injury to the target cells. Pdt is often used to treat precancerous skin lesions. Light sensitive medication is first applied to the skin where it is taken up by the abnormally growing precancerous cells. Light is then applied to cause specific cell injury.
