Chemical Peel Vs. Photodynamic Therapy?
I have mild acne on my face, and extremely large, VERY oily, and red pores on my nose. My general skin condition is also very patchy, dry and red in places. I have had chemical peels before, and actually use a home salicylic acid peel (15%) every few days to clear my pores, however my skin is still poor. How does PDT differ from a chemical peel, and what is the likelihood that it would improve my skin if the peels to date have not worked for me? Thanks
Photodynamic therapy works great for Rosacea

PDT/Blue light vs Chemical peel
PDT is intense light plus aminolevulinic acid.
