Treats Pre-Cancerous Actinic Keratoses

Dr. Timothy Jochen, Board Certified Dermatologist with Contour Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery Center in Rancho Mirage, La Quinta and Palm Springs, California, discusses how Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy treats pre-cancerous actinic keratoses as well as acne.

Treatment of actinic keratoses (AK) patients also involves the addition of Levulan – a light-sensitizing agent. Blue Light therapy has a 90% cure rate for AK. Treatment of AK is typically covered by insurance.
