Aminolevulinic Acid and Laser Treatment - Knight Dermatology Institute - Orlando, FL Aminolevulinic Acid and Laser Treatment Details

Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is used in combination with photodynamic therapy (PDT) to treat actinic keratoses (pre-cancers) and skin cancer. At the Knight Dermatology Institute, we also use ALA to compliment laser surgery, especially in combination with the Candela VBeam 595nm Pulse Dye laser.

Based on the most recent surgical literature, ALA can be combined with the Candela VBeam Pulse Dye laser to treat a myriad of benign lesions including sebaceous hyperplasia (yellow bumps on the face), warts, acne, scars, stretch marks and rosacea. Additionally, aminolevulinic acid treatments can be used to create cosmetically elegant photofacials to rejuvenate the skin.

Aminolevulinic Acid Treatment Procedure

Aminolevulinic acid comes in a special applicator containing a clear solution. This solution is applied to the intended treatment area 1 to 6 hours before laser surgery. During this time, you will be very sensitive to the sun, and strict sun avoidance should be practiced. Wearing hats and protective clothing is required; sunscreen and sun block will not adequately protect the treated areas. Exposure to sunlamps, tanning beds, and bright indoor lighting should be avoided.

Are there any side effects from Aminolevulinic Acid Treatments?

Common side effects of aminolevulinic acid treatment include redness, swelling, and scaling of both the treated areas as well as the immediate surrounding skin; these are temporary and should be completely gone within a few days following treatment.

Knight Dermatology Institute offers aminolevulinic acid and laser treatments to patients throughout Central Florida including the Orlando regional cities of Winter Park, Maitland, Longwood, Sanford, Kissimmee and Windermere.
