LEVULAN KERASTICK and BLU-U PDT, a 2-part treatment, is unique because it uses a light activated drug therapy to destroy Actinic keratoses (AKs). AKs are rough-textured, dry, scaly patches on the skin that can lead to skin cancer. It is important to treat AKs because there is no way to tell when or which lesions will progress to skin cancer.
LEVULAN KERASTICK Topical Solution is applied to the AK. The solution is then absorbed by the AK cells where it is converted to a chemical that makes the cells extremely sensitive to light. When the AK cells are exposed to the BLU-U Blue Light Illuminator, a reaction occurs which destroys the AK cells.
The 2-part treatment offers the following conveniences:
• Low downtime
• Administered by a health care professional in office
• No daily medication to remember
• Appropriate for multiple AKs on face or scalp
• No scarring reported in clinical trials
