PDT Really Works!

I did not have severe cystic acne, just a small amount developing on my jawline, as well as some sunspots. I mostly did this as a trial run, for my mother, who needed it but was a bit nervous.
That said, I loved the result. First the bad news...It was uncomfortable for two-three days. I used a sunburn treatment gel with lidocaine to alleviate some of the pain. And let me tell you, they mean it when they say "don't go outside for 2 days"....if you do, you will feel the burning on your face. Trust me. I only went in the car, with a hat on, and I could feel it.
Now for the good news...my skin looked absolutely fantastic after this procedure. Not only did my blemishes clear up, but my skin absolutely glowed. Alot (not all) of my freckles faded and people noticed and complimented me on how nice my skin looked. It was totally worth the discomfort and the money.
I think the price charged is reasonable. The office is friendly and they don't give you the "hard sell"...if they don't think you need the procedure, or, if it's not necessary, they won't recommend that you do it. In my case, they told me another PDT treatment would be a bit of overkill, so I followed it up with a Vitalize Peel.
