In brief: Blue light treatment

Blue light treatment or photodynamic therapy (pdt) for acne can be prescribed by a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon, typically after consultation and confirmation that it is an optimal course of treatment for control of your acne and there are no contraindications.

In brief: Blue light

Most often blue light therapy (photodynamic therapy) is done by a dermatologist.
It involves painting the treated area with a photosensitive agent (aminolevulenic acid-ala) and allowing it to be absorbed into the skin. Then the area is illuminated with blue (or red) light. In the right patient it can be a useful treatment.
