As human knowledge grows, the ability to use energy and light is provided.
A new cosmetic method is the Photodynamic Therapy method, which uses a photochemical method to treat a variety of diseases.
Photodynamic therapy uses light to treat a variety of diseases.
In 1898 this method was discovered by Raab and his research team in Munich, Germany, which has shown very positive results for the treatment of skin diseases.
Mechanism of action of photodynamic therapy:
In this method, materials that are sensitive to light are used, materials that are sensitive to a particular wave of light, in the photodynamic method of photochemical materials are sensitive to light and respond to light.
Light-sensitive substances enter the body orally or by injection.
The body tissues absorb the injected material.
After the material is injected, light is applied to the surface of the skin, the light emitting material reacts to the material and activates the light, resulting in the release of oxygen free radicals in different areas of the tissue.
Photodynamic Therapy Applications:
Treatment of esophageal tumors
Treatment of head and neck tumors, lung
Treatment of lung, esophageal, bladder, colon, prostate, breast, brain, etc. cancers
It should be noted that due to the non-invasive method of photodynamic therapy, this method has been very successful in other methods such as skin diseases.
Photodynamic Therapy Applications in Skin and Beauty:
Some tips on Photodynamic Therapy:
Treatment of large tumors with photodynamic therapy has little effect because light can penetrate them.
Improving some of the complications of photodynamic therapy can take up to 8 weeks.
Doctors and specialists at Alchemy Cosmetic Clinic recommend that patients undergoing photodynamic therapy avoid exposure to sunlight.
Light is transmitted by optical fibers.
In the photodynamic therapy, acne can be easily managed, by overcoming the glands and the bacteria that are the main causes of acne.
Photodynamic therapy involves collagen therapy, which can also lighten the treatment of wrinkles or pigments.
Usually, treatment for skin problems requires three sessions of treatment over two weeks.
Photodynamic therapy is actually a combination of laser science and a light-sensitive drug.
The Role of Photodynamic Therapy in the Treatment of Chronic Diabetic Foot Infection:
This treatment can be used to treat foot ulcers, photodynamic therapy, wound healing for diabetic patients and chronic wound infections.
Alchemy Beauty Clinic is a leading provider of science and technology applied to skin and hair beauty treatments and treatments, and is one of the services of the Photodynamic Therapy Clinic that few beauty clinics provide. In this article, we explain Photodynamic Therapy.
Photodynamic Therapy Applications
* Treatment of superficial non-melanoma skin cancer
Actinic treatment: This is a pathological condition that generally affects the lower lip and is caused by prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Of course, it can occur in different parts of the body, but the most common site for this condition is facial skin. It is a precancerous lesion.
* Treatment of human papillomavirus infections with anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative properties in treated lesions
* Treatment of visceral lesions including liver masses
* Treatment of respiratory, gastrointestinal and bladder tubes
Applications of Photodynamic Therapy in Skin and Beauty
In general, due to the good effects of Photodynamic Therapy on a wide range of skin usually has a good improvement in beauty and has very good results in beauty, besides having very few side effects which is the best way to enhance beauty and treat skin problems. comes.
Treatment of non-malignant lesions such as acne vulgaris: Increasing antibiotic-resistant strains reduces the benefits of routine basic treatments, and the need for alternative therapies is needed. Phototherapy is an effective treatment for acne and the well known photodynamic therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment.
Treatment of premature skin aging caused by corrosive exposure
Improves inflammatory skin disorders
Actinic keratosis treatment (epithelial cutaneous tumors most commonly found in people undergoing transplantation).
Benefits of Photodynamic Therapy
Due to the high level of radiation used in the treatment of large skin lesions.
Low cost and ease of access
Different optical sensing compounds with different absorption can be used.
Lasers in Photodynamic Therapy
Light compounds and chemicals are widely used in the treatment of skin diseases. This widespread use has led to the emergence of photodynamic therapy. Photodynamic therapy is a method for the treatment of malignant and non-malignant skin diseases. This method is based on Tewis, an optical sensing compound that selectively accumulates in the target tissue. Exposure of the lesion to visible light in the presence of oxygen results in light damage and subsequent tissue degradation.
Shortly after the invention of the laser, its use in medicine began. The fundamental features of laser light, such as their coherence and monochrome, have made the laser a great tool for a variety of applications in medicine, including surgery, hemangioma treatment, skin rejuvenation, hair removal and more. named. Because of the many benefits of laser in medical science, laser is used in photodynamics.
The benefits of using lasers as light sources for PDT include:
– The maximum effect can be seen when the laser wavelength used corresponds to the optical absorption peak of the light sensing material, which is attributable to the monochromatic property of the laser.
– The high radiation intensity produced by the lasers has helped to reduce the duration of the radiation.
Lasers can also be used for internal organs such as the abdominal cavity and lung if using optical fiber.
The disadvantages of using lasers as photodynamic therapy light sources are:
– Expensive service
– Complex maintenance
Lasers transmitted using optical fibers are only useful for small lesions on the skin.
The choice of light source in photodynamic therapy depends on its application. For photodynamic therapy purposes where light must penetrate the skin layers, a large scattering of non-laser light sources will be used.
The number and size of lesions, the necessity of having a compact portable source with a smaller, flexible field source, the frequency of treatment and its cost are other important factors to consider in choosing a light source.
