Red and flaky? Not anymore.

Do you have sensitive, red, flaky patches of skin on your face or hands? Those could be pre-cancerous spots known as actinic keratoses, a condition that’s caused by chronic sun exposure. Ironically, the best way to battle this damage-by-sunlight is with more light.

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses light to activate medication on your skin that treats the actinic keratoses. You’ll likely notice some cosmetic benefits too, like a reduction of sun spots or broken blood vessels. A portion of this procedure might be covered by your insurance.

Would you like to know more about PDT and if it's right for you? Don't wait. Book a consultation today.

Our blog is dedicated to all the latest news from Compass Dermatology, a boutique dermatology clinic located in Toronto.
