Q: Who is a candidate for PDT?
Any individual with sun damaged skin, inflammatory rosacea, acne, or actinic keratoses is a candidate for PDT. Patients who are pregnant, have been on isotretinoin in the past 6 months, or tanned/sunburned cannot have the treatment.
Q: Is PDT covered by insurance?
For the treatment of actinic keratosis, blue light treatment is covered by Medicare and other insurance companies.
Q: How do I prepare for my treatment?
Please arrive at Northern Arizona Dermatology
with a freshly cleaned face - free of any makeup, aftershave, or moisturizers. You will also need to avoid ANY sun exposure for 48 hours after your treatment so we recommend bringing a wide brimmed hat or umbrella to your appointment.
