What Is Photodynamic Therapy?
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a special light-based treatment performed with the help of drugs called photosensitizers that are applied to the skin. These photosensitizers interact with a specific wavelength of light that, when activated, causes them to create a chemical reaction that destroys the affected skin cells. PDT can be used to treat individuals with a wide range of health and skin conditions in Midland, TX, including actinic keratosis and skin cancer. They can also help treat sun damage, discoloration, fine lines, and wrinkles. Contact Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center to learn more about how photodynamic therapy is used and whether or not it's an appropriate solution for you.
How Does Photodynamic Therapy Work?
Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center offers PDT as an outpatient procedure at our Midland, TX office. After cleansing your skin, we will apply a topical solution to the treatment area where it will need to absorb into the skin for at least an hour to fully penetrate. Once your skin is ready, it will be exposed to a special light for roughly 15 minutes, during which time the irregular cells will be destroyed. You may feel a stinging sensation during the treatment, and your skin will be sensitive for up to two days afterward. It's important to avoid overexposure to the sun during that time to prevent any further damage. Additional PDT may be recommended to get better results.
Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center Reviews
Shout Out! @Adrienne & Mikayla Great team here! Profesional & efficient. Really made me feel at home and comfortable with my procedures. Looking forward to Botox!
Skilled, kind, & knowledgeable! I have struggled with adult acne and scaring for years and after just a few visits I’m seeing the results I want. I’ve seen several of their providers and each one is incredible. That’s a rarity, I’m very glad to have found your practice.
Adrienne and Mikayla are great, super quick and I laughed more during my appointment than I have in the last 6 months. 5 stars!!!!
I've been seeing Adrienne Do for both cosmetic and medical dermatology and she has been AMAZING! I was hesitant to seek care in Midland for my skin issues, but Basin Dermatology has provided me with effective & affordable treatment. They are almost always able to fit me in for an appointment the same week I request to schedule. This is unheard of, as most providers I have seen for dermatology in the past tend to have a 6-12 month wait list. I cannot recommend Basin Dermatology more!
I saw Adriane Do she was awesome! I had a cyst in between my breast for about 2 years. My pcp sent me to derm to take care of it. Well it was a very good experience she took it out and there is no scares. Her and the nurse did an awesome job that I will gobsee her for other problems.
