Levulan Photodynamic Therapy?

Has anyone tried Levulan Photodynamic Therapy? I'm guessing not because itís really new, but itís supposed to be really good at stopping acne. They put on a cream, and then they zap you with a laser, which is supposed to activate the cream and immediately whip out all acne bacteria. I also think that itís supposed to help new bacteria from forming, not just wipe out the current bacteria.

Re: Levulan Photodynamic Therapy?

Hey, just found this post. Ive had it, 4 treatments to date, and my god- its the best thing I ever did. First of all, Ive done Accutane twice, my acne came back as soon as I stopped it...and Ive done every topical and oral on the market...this was my last resort.
I love what this did for my stopped the oil- it works just like accutane, shrinking the sebaceous glands under the skin...and it got rid of most of my scarring. My doc said 3-5 treatments, after #4, I am not certain Ill need another one..
I highly recommend it...
