Gaining in popularity is the use of PDT with a cream called Allumera® for the purpose of skin rejuvenation. Like traditional PDT, Allumera is applied to and bathes the skin one hour before activation by blue, red, or IPL light. In 3 sessions spaced about one month apart, skin appearance is improved by inducing dermal collagen remodeling, improving skin texture overall, minimizing pore size, shrinking oil glands, and softening fine lines. It is also utilized to brighten and even overall skin tone. This is a perfect fit for patients who do not want the downtime of a deeper peel and are not quite ready for a more aggressive procedure like Fractional Laser Resurfacing.
