Photodynamic Therapy

Lighten under eye circles

What can you do about dark circles under your eyes (besides try to hide them)? Lighten them with an effective, non-invasive procedure known as Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) using Levulan®.

PDT is typically used to treat sun damage and acne, but Dr. Clinton also likes PDT for lightening dark circles under the eye. The result is a lighter, brighter, more youthful looking eye area.

How it Works/What To Expect

PDT is a two-step process. In the first step, Dr. Clinton applies Levulan, a clear, painless chemical photosensitizing agent. The Levulan stays on for 30 minutes to 24 hours, as Dr. Clinton prescribes.

In the second step, Dr. Clinton uses blue light or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser to activate the Levulan® for approximately 8 to 16 minutes.

You may experience redness and peeling for a few days, however, Dr. Clinton says to prepare yourself for one full week of redness and peeling.

See optimal results after 2 to 3 treatments, spaced one month apart.
