Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has become indispensable for the treatment of tumors and tumor precursors of “white skin cancer”. In PDT the interaction between light and a special photosensitizer is used.
The photosensitizer is applied locally to the patient’s affected skin areas and accumulates mainly in the diseased tissue due to the cellular properties of the tumor or tissue alteration.
After the application, the tumor or tissue alteration is exposed to light of a special wavelength. In the process, substances are formed that specifically damage the tumor or tissue alteration.
In recent years, daylight PDT in particular has become established. The clear advantage of this special variant of photodynamic therapy is the relative absence of pain for the patient. The disadvantage is the dependence on suitable weather conditions.
With our PDT system MultiLite, we have a suitable solution for all areas of application of a PDT lamp for your practice in our portfolio.
