Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) Cost

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is typically used for acne, enlarged oil glands, and sun damage. PDT costs from $300 to $800 for a single treatment. When several sessions are required, which is often the case, many physicians will provide an all-inclusive quote for a series of treatments or for multiple body areas treated at once.

PDT involves the application of a topical drug combined with time spent in front of a red or blue light. The cost of your PDT treatment may be influenced by several factors, but it won't be affected by the time spent sitting in front of the light source (which can last 60 seconds to 90 minutes).

Aside from your physician's fee and the geographical location of their practice, the cost of PDT is based on the number of areas you plan to treat, the severity of the skin concern you want to banish, and the actual cost of the topical, light activated cream used (which will be either Levulan or Metvix). These photosensitizing drugs alone cost $150 to $300, the fee which is usually included in your bill. If you're treating several body parts at once and need an extra dose of Levulan, expect to pay more.

How to get Photodynamic therapy (PDT): Photodynamic therapy can be administered in a physician's office or in a clinical outpatient setting.
