The PDT is a non-invasive method for the treatment of superficial forms of white skin cancer and its precursors.
Here, the cancer cells are destroyed by local application of a special ointment on the affected areas and subsequent irradiation with a LED light in a specific wavelength. The treated areas heal without scarring.
This works both with artificial light sources and with daylight (daylight PDT).
PDT can also be used to treat acne and in anti-aging therapy.
