Tomorrow I go in for my Levulan/Blu-U dermatology treatment. There is the possibility I'll be wandering around looking a touch sunburned, but that's ok. I never actually got a proper sunburn this season, so I'm due.

Is this laser treatment?

It's at the laser center, but isn't actually a laser treatment per se. The levulan is a photo-sensitizer ('natural' in the sense that the body manufactures it, just in smaller quantities) that gets taken up rapidly by more active cells, including pre-cancerous keritosis and the sebaceous glands. So that gets painted on your skin, then you sit under a set of blue florescent tubes which then kills the photosensitized cells and bacteria, sterilizing the sebaceous glands. I meant to include a link in the post, though most of the info is in *.pdf files.

ah. I see. Everything is clear now.
