Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, and millions of Americans are plagued with acne and other skin conditions. Jill Waibel, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist at Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute, uses photodynamic therapy to treat people living in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Kendall, FL, as well as surrounding areas, with pre-cancerous lesions, photodamaged skin, acne and more.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a combination chemical-laser treatment that causes the destruction of precancerous lesions and photodamage. PDT is unique in that it is both a medical and cosmetic treatment rolled into one. PDT can be used to prevent future pre-skin cancer and skin cancer. The results are brighter, smoother, younger, healthier rejuvenated skin. This procedure has been proven to be effective for acne as well.
