Photodynamic Therapy Brighton

This can be a very effective treatment for sun damage and thin types on skin cancer.  It involves removing any crust from the area and then applying a cream under a dressing. This is left to absorb into the area over 2 hours.  The residual cream is then removed and a red light shone onto the area to activate the cream.  This lasts roughly 15 minutes and can be painful.  Following the treatment the area will become red sore and may weep but it will heal over the next few weeks.
