Did my Metvix and Levulan treatments fail based on the fact that I have no redness, swelling or peeling? (photo)
I had my first MAL-PDT on Monday morning for acne: microdermabrasion then MAL-PDT (Incubation 90min + Aktilite 16 min). I had no redness at all the next day. I returned to the clinic on Tuesday afternoon, and dermatologist performed: Microdermabrasion then ALA-PDT (Incubation 40min+ Blu-U 16 minutes). The redness increased that night, up to the point of a bad sunburn, but I woke up this morning (Wednesday) with very little redness again, no sign of peeling and light itching on the chin.
