Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

PDT combines light and a light-activated drug to treat conditions like acne, psoriasis, and skin cancer.

What is it?

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) can be helpful in treating a variety of skin conditions. PDT is a two-step process, starting with application of a light-sensitive drug, sometimes called a photosensitizing agent. This drug is inactive when applied. Applying a specific wavelength of light activates the drug, allowing for targeted treatment. This ability to target very specific areas helps protect healthy skin during treatment.


When performed by a board-certified dermatologist, PDT can be a very effective treatment. It is minimally invasive and reduced the risk of scarring. Depending on your needs, our team at Associated Dermatologists will recommend the most appropriate treatment. For some patients, PDT is an effective treatment option that gets them back to their daily routine quickly.


PDT may be used to treat acne, actinic keratosis, psoriasis, skin cancer, and vitiligo. Our providers offer Photodynamic Therapy to patients in Berkley, Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield, Commerce, and Novi, Michigan.
