    Photodynamic Therapy Treatment For Acne in Philadelphia

    The most evolving treatment, also the most revolutionary of treatments available nowadays for acne, is photodynamic therapy. I feel very strongly about photodynamic therapy. In my opinion, it can in many instances replace the need for oral antibiotics, that are unnecessarily given for long periods of time. It is very, very similar in results to isotretinoin or Accutane without the need to exposure of chemicals that some people may be very fearful of. Photodynamic therapy works by incorporating a medicine, a substance called levulinic acid into our oil glands. It is then activated by red light and blue light, and that particular activation causes destruction of the oil glands –…

    Pharmacology – ACNE TREATMENT (MADE EASY)

    In this lecture we’re gonna cover the pharmacology of drugs used for acne treatment. So let’s get right into it by first discussing the pathophysiology of acne. Acne is a multifactorial inflammatory disease that affects the skin’s oil glands and hair follicles. The oil-producing glands present in our skin, known as sebaceous glands, are usually attached to hair follicles and release a fatty substance called sebum that helps protect and lubricate the skin and hair. Acne occurs when sebum and dead skin cells become trapped in a hair follicle, thus forming a small plug known as microcomedo.
