What is Levulan

Levulan is a prescription medication used in combination with photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the treatment of actinic keratosis, a skin condition caused by sun exposure. It contains the active ingredient aminolevulinic acid (ALA) and is typically applied to the affected skin before PDT. Levulan enhances the effects of PDT in treating actinic keratosis, but it does not provide a cure for all skin conditions. Treatment with Levulan and PDT should be supervised by a healthcare provider, and regular skin examinations are important.
