Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Photodynamic therapy is currently the gold standard for treating actinic keratosis.

Actinic keratosis are
 precancerous skin alterations and are very common.Particularly crusty changes on the forehead, on the temples, on the nose and the bald head are caused throught years of sun exposure. Commonly affected are people with sun sensitive skin are preferably beyond the age of 50. Since prediction is impossible, if malignant skin cancer could arise from actinic keratosisis, it is highly recommended to treat this precancerous skin alteration as early as possible.

Affected skin areas are destroyed by this kind of treatment combining a special cream and infrared light. If the sun damaged of the skin is severe apart of the PDT-treatment lasertreatment or fruit acids could optimize the therapeutical outcome.

Advantages: Healthy skin cells are not affected and mostly scarring does not occur.
