A revolutionary medical device empowered by proprietary LED technology. It stands alone as the most advanced phototherapy system available, delivering precision, unmatched energy, and customisable performance.

LED therapy explained

During an LED session, the skin is gently exposed to low-level light energy, activating key cell receptors and triggering a transfer of light energy into cellular energy.

This energises skin cells, enhancing their functionality and promoting the renewal of cells for a more youthful, healthy, and radiant complexion. 

During the treatment, you will feel a warm sensation over the face - similar to that of lying under the sun, recognised as an essential modality for skin care practitioners, all without the inconvenience of downtime.

What is Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)?

Photo Dynamic Therapy is a medical treatment that uses a combination of a photosensitising cream and specific wavelengths of light to treat various conditions, including superficial basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in situ (Bowen’s disease).

Two treatments are required, seven days apart. A cream is applied to your skin, before being activated by an LED light. The activated cream selectively destroys only the skin cancer cells. This means that side effects such as scarring are minimised and healthy tissue surrounding the lesion is not affected.

PDT can produce excellent cosmetic improvements, as well as removing the problem cells. It is used when other treatments or surgery are considered unnecessary or unacceptable.


How does Photodynamic Therapy Work?
  • Administration of Photosensitizing Agent:

Patients will have the lesion prepped and the cream applied. The cream is not active until it is exposed to LED light.

  • Absorption of Photosensitizer (cream):

The photosensitising cream is absorbed by the targeted cells, accumulating selectively in the abnormal or cancerous tissues. A wait time of three hours is required.

  • Irradiation with Light:

After the three hour incubation period, the drug is absorbed, the targeted area is exposed to light of a specific wavelength. This activates the photosensitiser, leading to the production of a photochemical reaction.

  • Cell Destruction:

The cancer cells absorb the light sensitive medicated cream. A light is then applied to the area where the cancer is. The light causes the drug to react and produce a type of oxygen that kills the nearby cells. 


Advantages of Photodynamic Therapy
  • Minimally Invasive:

PDT is a minimally invasive treatment, reducing the need for extensive surgery.

  • Targeted Treatment:

The photosensitising cream selectively accumulates in the targeted cells, minimising damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

  • Reduced Side Effects:

Compared to some traditional treatments, PDT often results in fewer side effects.

  • Versatility:

PDT can be used to treat a variety of conditions, making it a versatile therapeutic option.


What is suitable for PDT?
  • Superficial basal cell carcinomas (BCC's)
  • Bowen's disease (squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in situ)
  • Actinic keratosis (solar keratosis)

PDT is not suitable for deep basal cell cancers or squamous cell skin cancers. This is because the light cannot go deeply enough into the skin.


During the treatment

You may feel a stinging or burning sensation in the treatment area when the light is on. A fan or painkillers can be used to make the treatment more comfortable. 

You can have more than one skin cancer treated at a time. 


After treatment

A scab forms where you had the treatment and you have a dressing in place to cover it. A steroid cream may be applied on the treatment area. This helps to reduce any itching.

The scab usually heals in about 3 weeks. 

The light sensitising cream makes the treated skin more sensitive to sunlight. We recommend that you wear sunscreen of SPF 50+ for at least 72 hours.  You might need to avoid bright light or sunlight for a time. This is because all your skin may be more sensitive to sunlight.  


Side effects of PDT

The treated area might have some inflammation. It may look pink, red and swollen. The site might also ooze or develop a crust. This should get better after a few days. But if you are worried contact Hobart Plastic Surgery.



For 1 lesion  (two sessions) $900 total

For 2 lesions (two sessions) $1300 total

For 3 lesions or more (i.e. field area) (two sessions) $2,000 total

All LED light sessions of PDT take 20 minutes, and all have a final review appointment by our surgeon after 3 months (bulk billed appointment).

PDT is performed using Metvix cream and Dermalux Tri-Wave LED machine.
