Photodynamic Therapy is a treatment for actinic keratosis (Precancers) that involves the application of amino levulinic acid to the skin topically. This acid then incubates for a period of 1-3 hours after which a blue light is applied to the skin to activate the acid. This procedure selectively destroys the precancerous cells in the skin and treats large areas of severely sun damaged skin.
