Elite MD's Grand Opening in Blackhawk


Photodynamic Therapy in Danville, CA

Photodynamic therapy is used to treat various skin conditions, including destroying precancerous skin cells. Elite MD offers noninvasive Levulan® Kerastick® photodynamic therapy. A two-part treatment using a topical solution of aminolevulinic acid activated by the BLU-U® blue light photodynamic therapy illuminator, Levulan Kerastick can quickly and effectively treat sun-damaged skin, enlarged pores, chronically chapped lips, inflammatory acne, and rosacea. Once the drug is applied, the covered skin is exposed to a laser that activates the drug. The drug then continues to remove abnormal skin cells, leaving behind smoother, cleaner, and healthier-looking skin. To learn more, schedule a consultation at Elite MD in Danville, CA.

On the day of the procedure, you will need to bring an umbrella or wide-brimmed hat to protect you from the sun after the treatment. Using an applicator, we will evenly apply the Levulan Kerastick directly to the targeted treatment areas. You will go home while the treatment penetrates the lesions. You should not wash your skin during this time. You should also avoid sun exposure and any other forms of bright light.

When you return, the treated area will be gently rinsed and dried before you are exposed to the BLU-U treatment. This step should take about 17 minutes. After completing the second step, you should continue to protect your head from light for at least 24 hours.

Photodynamic therapy at Elite MD treats sun damage, enlarged pores, chapped lips, acne, and rosacea by applying a photosensitive drug to the skin and activating it with a laser. This process removes abnormal skin cells, resulting in smoother and healthier skin. The benefits of this treatment include:

  • Precise skin rejuvenation: It involves applying a photosensitive drug to the skin and activating it with a laser, targeting abnormal skin cells and resulting in smoother and healthier skin
  • Skin cancer risk reduction: Levulan Kerastick is used for actinic keratosis treatment, reducing the risk of skin cancer
  • Convenience: PDT is a convenient treatment option with no requirement for daily medication, making it easy to incorporate into your lifestyle
  • Minimal downtime: Patients experience low downtime, allowing them to resume their normal activities sooner

Their service is truly exceptional. I love their service and they treat me so special. The staff and everyone there really takes their time to work with each individual patient. This is why I keep coming back and I have been a patient with them for years now. Linda is the aesthetician and she was so amazing with her services. She has been in the business for over 40 years. The staff and customer service is the reason why I keep coming back!

i went to Elite MD for fillers for my face and under my eyes due to hollowness, and also got lip fillers . I was so lucky and fortunate to have Dr. Sonia Badreshia-Bansal do the proceedure . There's no question that having a professional and experienced practioner like Dr. Bansal who absolutely addressed the concerns I have about the loss of volume in my face and underneath my eyes . I am so thankful and happy with my results and highly recommend Elite MD MedSpa and Plastic Surgery center for facial rejuvination / fillers . This place is so amazing .

I had my fillers done today with Dr Sonia Bansal. She was so gentle and made sure I was comfortable. I had my Marionette lines done, under eye hollows and lines around my mouth. I used Juvederm XC and Juvederm Volbella. When I left, the results were amazing!!! I can't wait to see the results in 2 weeks. I highly recommend Elite Md. The staff are super friendly as well.

I got my six pack abs I always wanted - I couldn't be happier with my new body. I had my doubts sense it was my first surgery but when I spoke to the doctor all that went away. He explained everything perfectly and was always stright up with what I should expect. Now I got my six pack abs I always wanted and feel more confident then ever before. All I can say is do it. It will change your whole life.
