Photodynamic therapy is a new unique method of treatment for onychomycosis (foot and nail fungus)!

The method of photodynamic therapy (non-invasive) is based on the destruction of malignant tumor and non-tumor (bacterial, viral, fungal) cells. The photosensitizer, the main ingredient of which is algae spirulina (in liquid and gel form) after penetration into the body, selectively accumulates, and has the selecting ability to accumulate only in pathologically degenerated cells. Photodynamic therapy is used for such diseases as:

  • Basal cell carcinoma,
  • Sarcoma,
  • Leukoplakia,
  • Erythroplasia,
  • Lymphoma,
  • Acne,
  • Couperosis,
  • Rosacea,
  • Post-acne dermatitis,
  • Atopic dermatitis,
  • Onychomycosis (nail fungus),
  • Papilloma,
  • Corns,
  • Keratinized heels,
  • Diabetic foot,
  • Periodontitis and stomatitis.

As a result of exposure to a low-intensity red laser beam (662 nm) and a photosensitizer, singlet oxygen and free radicals are formed, which destroy pathological cells by process of apoptosis.
