Photodynamic therapy

Photodynamic therapy represents a new non-invasive technique which is particularly effective in the treatment of actinic keratosis.

For example we treatment early stages of squamous cell carcinoma), superficial basal cell carcinoma of the skin and lesions caused by severe exposure to sunlight.

Subsequent to a histological examination, a gel, ointment or pad is applied to the affected skin area for about 3-4 hours before a photodynamic device irradiates the affected skin area with a specific light wave source for about 20 minutes, causing the tumour cells to decompose.

Depending on the diagnosis, the procedure may be repeated after 2 to 4 weeks. This treatment has excellent results and works ideally for large areas of degenerated cells (e.g. scalp), difficult-to-reach skin regions or the face, since healing occurs without the formation of scars.

The outcome of the procedure is therefore aesthetically advantageous. As a non-surgical technique, it is particularly suitable for patients seeking to avoid the potential risks of an operation (e.g. advanced age).
