What are the benefits of Photodynamic Endolaser Therapy? Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a non-surgical, non-scarring skin cancer treatment that uses light sources combined with a light-sensitive drug to destroy cancer cells. It’s superior to freezing, chemo, and surgery. Photodynamic Therapy treats cancer by cells that have absorbed photosensitizers are exposed to a specific wavelength of light, the photosensitizers produce a form of oxygen, called an oxygen radical that kills them. Photodynamic therapy may also damage blood vessels in the tumor, which prevents it from receiving the blood it needs to keep growing. And, it may trigger the immune system to attack tumor cells, even in other areas of the body.
Most often, you can have photodynamic therapy as an outpatient, which means you go home after treatment and do not spend the night in the hospital. You may have photodynamic therapy by itself, or you may have it along with other cancer treatments. This procedure is effective in treating Basal Cell Cancer, Squamous Cell, and Actinic Keratosis (sun damage).
