I want to buy a Levulan Kerastick? where do I get one?
I had the Levulan with BlueLight treatment done at a medspa...it cost $550. All they did was rub the clear gel on my face, leave me alone for 3 hours, then exposed me to blue light for 7 minutes. I have a blue light at home....I know I could do the treatments myself...for much less money. This is an acne treatment.

Here is a site that has a pdf file that you can read. it is addressed to the doctors that administer the levulan kerastick treatmennt. I don't think that the equiment is available for purchase to the public yet. the best you can do is to ask the doctor if they are for sale. The cost of this machine is $8,000.00 dollars and they consider this a cheap investment. This article is from the Journal of DRUGS in Dematol 2006;5(2) Supplement Answered by So Hevessy 2 years ago.

Does medicare cover Levulan Kerostic therapy for cancer?
Levulan Kerastick is a two step treatment for skin cancer on the scalp
Asked by Cecil Kriger 2 years ago.
It should be. You can always call your drs office and ask for the diagnosis code and the procedure code then call your insurance company to see. By law they have to tell you!! Sometimes they want a prior autherization. So have you had this treated by other methods first? As far as I know medicare covers a great deal of treatments. But it also depends on what type of medicare too. ( I work in a doctors office) Just remember if you have it done plan to stay indoors as much as possible. Light makes it more irritated. You won't like the outcome but is very effective!! Answered by Alverta Wheelen 2 years ago.

Levulan Kerastick Photodynamic Therapy??
Has anyone ever had this treatment? I'm getting it done in a couple of weeks for acne but i don't know anyone who has ever done it
Asked by Nidia Khiev 2 years ago.
It seems to be a new technology, but not for acne. It is for Actinic Keratoses, a precancerous skin displasia due to sun exposure. The average patient is around 70 or older. It works by "priming" the skin with a topical chemical that makes the affected cells very sensitive to certain kinds of blue light. When the light hits, free radicals are produced, and cells (the keratotic cells) are killed. It is less traumatic than surgical removal, especially since some people have many keratoses, primarily on the face. I have a hard time imagining how this treatment would help acne, since if you "kill" all your pimples, there no doubt will be more tomorrow. Answered by Miesha Himelfarb 2 years ago.

Acne is casued by stress and pollitants that are all around us in today's environment. My acne all went away within a few months of my embracing the Church of Scientology and allowing Xenu to cleanse my of my impure thoughts and physical body. This was almost 7 years ago and never had any pimples since, except for a couple on my bum from time to time. Answered by Blair Hummert 2 years ago.

Can you pick acne while on accutane?
please keep the answers strictly to the questions
Asked by Avelina Svetlik 2 years ago.
Does picking acne while on accutane really make you more vulnerable to getting scars? If i already picked 3 since i have been on is it likely that ill get a scar? What about when im shaving and i cant help it breaking them once in a while? So far i dont have any scars, but im curious to know if acne scars are permenant. I no there are like 4 types of scars; can any/all of them be removed? Does levulan remove acne scars or is there something better? thanks Answered by Melony Gierlach 2 years ago.
I've been on accutane for a little over two months. I admit, I like to pick. It's a horrible habit, and I really need to stop. So far, most of the stuff I've picked just scabbed up and went away without a scar. However, I picked at two on my arm, and I definitely have white scar marks where the pigmentation of my skin looks messed up. They aren't fading much at all. So, I think it really depends on your skin type, and where you pick. My friends who were on accutane picked and never had any scaring at all. I've heard emu oil is good for helping the old scars and redness go away, but I don't know much about levulan. Hope this helps, and best of luck with your treatment!

Dry and/or greasy skin due to poor oil composition of the skin. Thick greasy oils clog pores, lack of oil leads to dryness and irritation. You need thin oils to moisturize while dissolving and clearing gunk in your poors. Try fish oil or seafood. 2 tsp fish oil a day or 4 servings of seafood a week. Stick it out for at least 2 months; it will take a long time to replace all your oil. Any effect after 1-2 days is temporary or random; so even if it makes you break out a little at first, you haven't given it a full try yet. In the short term you can wash and moisturize well, but that will only go so far. Plus excessive washing can be drying and excessive moisturizing can be clogging. Use a small amount of a light moisturizer, made with oil not jelly or grease. Often that means soybean oil or mineral oil. Mineral oil means mined from the ground. So soybean oil is usually better, though mineral oil won't cause too much harm. Clean with soap and water, not a harsh acne cleanser. Even then they only work so well. So you really need the seafood. Antibiotics aren't really good for bacteria long term, they'll come back in force after. Short term they may help. After you get off them find some kefir with acidophilus listed first or 2nd to replace the friendly bacteria they destroyed. Studies show less illness when you have these bacteria, even outside the stomach in places such as the lungs and elsewhere. You want friendly bacteria to fill the void when the antibiotics stop, not harmful ones. In the short term you might also try 100,000+ iu retinol vitamin A (a megadose, and too much for normal use) or one of the acne drugs that is similar to retinol vitamin A. It's some minor harm to your organs, but it helps against bacteria on your skin. At least it doesn't have the other long term drawbacks to your skin that antibiotics and many scrubs do.

I was on accutane couple years ago yes picking acne will lead to scars...I learned the hard lesson. i have scars on my outer cheeks and the temple. if you pick acne more or less in the same area, it tends to scaring. if u just pick at tiny white pimple or black ones, its ok, but i still would avoid it because in a few days. its goes away or it goes up on the surface of your skin and then drys up couple days later. AND yes they are PERMANENT but they can be removed by cosmetic surgery. BUT if you can avoid by scratching or picking your acne, would you do that or pay up thousands and thousands of dollars? shaving..i woulnd't know because i don't have that much facial hair. remedy..just leave it alone its for the best. for me during on accutane it was one of the worst experiences, i would get extremely dry skin. All I had to do was brush my arm with one finger and my skins just flakes off. And extreme back pain and moody swings. real question is what do you do after accuane is over. i started to get acne back after 4 months off accutane and I KNEW i did not want to go back on it. So I started using virgin coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and pure witch hazel, and aloe cream...ACNE no more! (they're all organic stuff) Answered by Helen Saneaux 2 years ago.
