Intense Miami PDT™

Living in Florida exposes us to tremendous amounts of sun, impacting our skin health and often causing some form of skin damage. At Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute, we offer Intense Miami Photodynamic Therapy™ to help patients alleviate sun damage and achieve beautiful skin. We welcome patients from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Kendall, and the surrounding areas of Florida.

WHAT IS INTENSE Miami photodynamic therapy™?

Intense Miami Photodynamic Therapy™, or Intense Miami PDT™, is a laser treatment that is exclusive to Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute. This treatment is used to address a variety of skin damage, including pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions. With Intense Miami PDT™, Jill Waibel, MD, FAAD, and her team use a combination of advanced laser techniques to treat skin damage and help patients achieve healthy, beautiful skin.


Our exclusive Intense Miami PDT™ treatment offers many benefits over other laser treatments because our combined laser techniques make treatment incredibly effective both medically and cosmetically. In addition to receiving customized care, patients can enjoy treating the following forms of skin damage with this procedure:

  • Photo-damage
  • Red and brown spots
  • Cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions

HOW DOES intense miami pdt™ WORK?

Intense Miami PDT™ is an effective treatment due to its unique combination of laser techniques. Treatment begins with Photodynamic Therapy, an advanced light therapy procedure that treats the majority of skin cancers and even prevents new skin cancers from forming. Photodynamic Therapy uses a topical medication that is then activated by blue light energy, eliminating the targeted skin growth. As blue light does not penetrate the skin very dee3ply, we often combine treatment with additional laser and light treatments. This customized and combined approach maximizes the efficacy of the procedure, ensuring outstanding results.


Photodynamic Therapy and other laser treatments that may be included in your Intense Miami PDT™ are generally comfortable, and most patients experience no discomfort at all. If you are concerned about pain or discomfort during your treatment, we can use a topical anesthetic to make it more comfortable. Immediately following treatment, your skin may be red, sensitive, or peeling. During this time, you should limit sun exposure to prevent any damage to the skin. In most cases, the skin will heal within a few days, and most symptoms can be alleviated with moisturizer.
