During the treatment a medication called 5-ALA (Topical 5 - Aminolevulinic Acid) is applied to the skin for a specified time. The ALA is selectively absorbed only by abnormal skin cells and bacteria. The skin is then exposed to an Intense Pulsed Light which activates the 5-ALA. This results in destruction of the abnormal cells which are in turn, replaced by normal skin cells.

30 minutes incubation time need without oclusion

Unit is for one use.  The ALA comes with the solution which is a small amount of powder in a small vial and the solvent which is mixed into the solution to activate

Unlike tubes of cream which once opened must be used within a few days and is very expensive; with this form of ALA, activation is not until ready for use. Therefore when it is not activated, it has a long shelf life. 

PDT is a non surgical and minimally invasive treatment which is primarily used for advanced Acne (grades 3 to 5) and sun damage. PDT has been shown to be extremely successful both therapeutically and cosmetically, even for severe Acne.

During the treatment a medication called 5-ALA (Topical 5 - Aminolevulinic Acid) is applied to the skin for a specified time. The ALA is selectively absorbed only by abnormal skin cells and bacteria. The skin is then exposed to an Intense Pulsed Light which activates the 5-ALA. This results in destruction of the abnormal cells which are in turn, replaced by normal skin cells.

We did our first 5 ALA patient last Friday, and was very impressed with the result.  We did a patients face and hands one half with the 5 Ala and the other half with Metvix and there was a very obvious difference.  The 5 ALA had a much better response.
We would very much like to continue using your product for our PDT treatments.
