I finally went to see a dermatologist for dry patches on my face and scalp. As I feared, they were precancerous lesions. I had my first treatment of the face today. First treatment of the scalp will be in two weeks, with a second one on the face two weeks after that, so a treatment every two... READ MORE

Hello, I just had the Levulan treatment done on Thursday and today is day 3(Saturday) I am RED, irritated/itchy, swollen and have tons of teeny tiny blister like things all over my face. The nurse said I reacted really well to the treatment given how red I was when the light was turned off. I've... READ MORE

At first I was scared to do the PDT. as I went through the procedures I my got progressively worse! It made me not want to even leave my house. I felt uncomfortable taking to people. I hated looking in the mirror. I started my breakouts when I turned 21. At first they were just pimples here and... READ MORE

I recently had a basal cell carcinoma removed surgically from my lip and the path reported basal and squamous cell carcinoma but got clear margins. whew! So my derm recommended I treat the AK on my face with Levulan and PDT. I went in this morning for the treatment. They put the Levulan on... READ MORE

Had my first Blue Light yesterday. Read the reviews here and I was very anxious and expected a great deal of pain. Well, it wasn't bad at all. Granted I would not want to do this on a daily basis but I have to rate the experience as more of a discomfort than pain. I went in, had my face... READ MORE

Ok. I was so nervous going into this procedure. I've seen lots of youtube videos on here and stuff on this site...was praying the whole time under the light and blasted music the whole time. I timed out the time under the light to equal 2 songs. :). SO i was singing along and in no time it was... READ MORE

Went to see about Rejuvapen but was told to take care of precancerous lesions first! Had it done last month but did not take! Had it redone yesterday and took this time!! Today very red, stinging and itchy! Using an Aloe cream they gave me! But my skin feels smoother already! I think... READ MORE

I was told to undergo this procedure 3 years ago by my dermatologist. I wasn't ready at the time. This time around my Plastic Surgeon recommended it, stating that I would achieve the results I was looking for without undergoing major surgial procedures. I went into the drs office the late...

I have had various treatments and creams and had twice nitrogen freezing done. I am on hols in Brazil and decided to see a dermo here... READ MORE

I Had Photodynamic Therapy to treat my preskin cancerous cells on the surface of my skin. I also suffer from Rosecea and sun damage and some acne. My face was cleaned with some alcohol and then Levulan. It tingled but was not painful. I sat with it on my face for 1 hour then sat with a... READ MORE

I had a combination of both ipl and a wave of a blue light done on my face some years ago- though it helped with my skin irritations on my face I don't believe I had got the full pdt treatment I was after (was a beauty place). This time around I went through a skin cancer clinic and had what is... READ MORE

Put under Blu-light for 17 minutes . Felt like a sunburn for about 24 hrs was told to put aloe Vera gel in refriderator . Really... READ MORE

Having the blue light in a couple of hours- I've had 6 or 7 skin cancers on my face so we thought this was the best plan of attack, along with a host of major health elements.....I'm normally not the jittery type but I find myself at 4 am reading reviews With a nice bundle of nerves- follow...

I've had many precancerous lesions either cut or frozen off with liquid nitrogen over the years (skin cancer runs in my family). My dermatologist convinced me to do the levulan stick with Blu light treatment as a more comprehensive way to treat these precancerous lesions. The 16 min under the... READ MORE

I had some acne for most of my teenage life but it didn't get really bad until my 20's. I would constantly have breakouts of cystic acne on my chin and cheeks. Over the years it caused me to have very bad scarring. I would feel extremely insecure if I didn't have loads of concealer on my face.... READ MORE

No pain no swelling no peeling no scabs or crusting... Only itchy and kinda dry and broke out on my chin, which I heard a... READ MORE

So I had dry scaly patches on my face for a couple years (cheek and nose). Loved the sun all my life. Got a very light facial last January and a couple weeks later got red spots in places I never had before, like above my lip and the other cheek. It went away. Went to Hawaii in March and my face...

I was warned but be prepared for worst pain ever, at least for a few minutes. First 2 minutes was excruciating last 14 were no walk in the park. I have had many treatment effudex and freezing no luck. I will post results. This is the product of three years in Kansas Wheat Fields. Think of... READ MORE

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. From reading others experience, I only should have been under the blue light for a total of 20 minutes. I will be taking that... READ MORE
