Meet a Real Patient: Kristi, 39
Kristi came to Younique six months before her wedding. She was new to facials, lasers, and anything outside her basic skincare routine. She wanted to be conservative in addressing her skincare needs, but still wanted to see results. Her main goal was to get fresh, healthy, and glowing skin on her big day without having to cover it up with makeup.
Dr. Youssef recommended PDT (photo-dynamic therapy), which uses a combination of a specific laser and Levulan (a solution applied topically) to target cystic acne and pre-cancerous lesions. Other benefits Kristi would receive from the PDT include minimizing brown spots, age spots, sun damage, and fine lines, and improving tone and texture of skin in as little as one treatment.
The PDT treatment is usually done on the face, neck, chest, and hands, but can be applied to other areas on the body. The treatment itself takes about an hour and requires seven to 10 days of recovery time.
