The Bispebjerg Hospital in Copenhagen is currently recruiting patients for a study comparing  the “efficacy and adverse effect from long-pulsed dye laser versus long-pulsed dye laser-mediated photodynamic therapy for acne vulgaris and rosacea.” The study is titled Laser-Mediated Photodynamic Therapy of Acne Vulgaris and Rosacea

When aminolevulinic acid (Levulan) is applied to the skin and it is activated by exposure to blue light or IPL, the treatment is called Photodynamic Therapy (PDT).

This study will assess whether using topical Levulan otherwise improves pulse dye laser treatment.
