Levulan or Amino-Levulinic Acid is a clear serum that is activated by light, and helps skin rejuvenate itself quickly. It is used to treat acne, scarring, and to improve the overall appearance and texture of your skin. It is typically used on the face but can be applied to other areas, such as the chest or back.
Levulan works in two parts. To begin, the solution is mixed and immediately applied to your skin. It is allowed to absorb and penetrate your skin for 1-3 hours, depending on the desired response. Your skin then becomes extremely sensitive to light. After the incubation, the excess Levulan is washed off and your skin is 'activated' by either Blu-U Light, IPL, or both. This photo-activation kills abnormal cells which can develop into skin cancer, as well as helping to control oil production and acne producing bacteria.
