PDT treatment was developed as an effective, scar-free alternative to liquid nitrogen treatment (freezing) for Solar Keratosis, and surgical removal of skin cancers. It achieves a similar clearance or cure rate, but with much better cosmetic outcomes.*

Treating Skin Cancers
Actinic Keratosis is usually red and scaly and occurs most commonly on the face, the head (in balding men) and the forearms and hands.
Initially they come and go but finally they are there all the time. If left untreated 40% those lesions turn into skin cancer per year, hence the importance of early treatment.
A BCC or Bowens lesion is already skin cancer. BCCs occur most commonly on the face and back while Bowens are usually found on the arms and legs.
