Levulan is an aminolevulinic acid solution (a substance found naturally within your body).
Levulan® is used to treat:
- Precancerous skin lesions known as AK lesions
- Oily skin and slow the growth of oil-producing sebaceous glands
- Sun damaged skin
- Fine skin lines and creases
First, we clean your skin well to prepare it. Levulan solution is then applied to the skin that's plagued by either acne, acneic scarring or in need of rejuvenation. The Levulan is left to absorb into your skin and the solution is taken up selectively by the abnormal skin cells in the treated area. The levulan is then activated with Intense pulse light-generally the Isolaz/ PPX system.The abnormal cells are then destroyed by the light activated Levulan products.
