Acne Treatment in Los Angeles
After the Levulan Photodynamic Therapy, individuals are cautioned to remain out of sunlight for at least 24-48 hours. This is because the skin is extremely sensitive to light during recovery time. During recovery, the skin will undergo a cycle: the areas where the Levulan was applied may become hyperpigmented and scaly. It may also begin to peel. Skin may swell and become itchy, and moisturizing cream and/or pain medication such as ibuprofen can help. Additionally, individuals should not be surprised if more acne appears as the skin pushes out the remaining impurities through the pores. This is a normal part of the Levulan Photodynamic Therapy.
After about a week, skin will significantly improve. The Levulan and Blu-U Blue Light treatment’s results last for at least four months after treatment, and individuals may return for more treatments if necessary.
