Levulan Kerastick - I had the treatment done yesterday. So far there is no redness, no peeling, no itching. My face looks exactly as it did prior to the treatment. Is that normal? After reading so many reviews of side effects on the internet, I am wondering if the procedure was done correctly. My face was first cleaned with acetone, then the medication was applied consistently throughout my face, waited 1 hour, then the light was applied for 16 or 17 minutes. Maybe I am extremely tolerant of meds, but to see absolutely no reaction concerns me. Any comments out there? Thanks!
According to the readme here: https://www.drugs.com/pro/levulan-kerastick.html Your doctor performed the procedure incorrectly. It says the face is cleaned, then the medication applied and then 14 hours later you have a four hour window only, where they apply the blue light.
The above link is the FDA document for professionals and it is right at the top of the page.
