Photodynamic therapy (PDT)

Photodynamic therapy activates a topical drug using a light, producing a chemical reaction that reduces acne, acne scars, wrinkles and other skin conditions.

Can I do PDT while on Solodyn (minocycline) medication?

Good question. I would recommend that you stop Minocycline while undergoing PDT. Minocycline can cause photosensitivity and potentially promote a more severe phototoxic response to your PDT.
