It is now day two and I'm still in extreme pain! My doctor had me under the light on my right side for 20 minutes, left side for 20 minutes and scalp for twenty minutes.

IPad the procedure done in my derms officers preventative measure against precancerous cells. The NP told me this would be like a "mild sunburn" and they said most people schedule them on Friday so they can heal over the weekend and return to work. Not so! I am burned beyond my expectation.

I was treated on March 8, 2013 with the Levulan Blue Light treatment at my dermatologist's office. This is my second treatment, the first one was about 2 years ago. I chose to have the PT treatment for treatment of pre-cancerous skin cells, versus undergoing a MOHs surgery to remove a couple... READ MORE

I've been a past user of Efudex on my face, and now many years later I've been advised by my dermatologist to try PDT. He feels it's the best course of action to pinpoint my preskin cancerous cells laying under the surface of my skin. He also said it's to avoid future cancer... READ MORE

I went through the 5-FU therapy 6 years ago, ended up with a horrible acid type burn on my face. Now we are going with PDT and I am scared to death (only because of my previous experience). This is scheduled for Friday 10/14/2011 and I am really nervous that my face will look like a freak... READ MORE

Ok so I finally had this procedure done! Initially I was prepared to pay $750 to have it done, but I found out that my insurance covered it because I have Actinic Keratosis, so after insurance my out of pocket was only $38.50! After reading all these reviews and talking with a few people that... READ MORE

I sought out a doctor to give me a Fraxel Re:pair for acne scarring. I found a doctor who would do the Re:pair, but wanted to treat my existing acne with a series of PDTs before doing the Fraxel Re:pair. I was ill-informed at the time, and it annoyed me to no end she wouldn't give me what I... READ MORE

Had ALS or pre cancer lesions all over my face and chest. Had the blu light on 4 /24 , this is the following Tuesday, and I can't believe the difference in my face.
