What are possible complications of Photodynamic Therapy?
As with any surgery or procedure, Photodynamic Therapy is associated with some possible minor risks and complications. While it is overall a very safe and effective minor in office treatment, there are some possible uncommon complications. Since an exaggerated light sensitive reaction is expected by definition of PDT, most patients understand and expect some type of a sunburn or red reaction after skin PDT. Not everyone gets a sunburn reaction and in fact some patients may have no visible reaction or redness.
