Modern studies have shown that photodynamic therapy with the use of natural light has equal results to classic photodynamic therapy with use of artificial light sources.
Furthermore the use of photodynamic therapy with natural light is better tolerated by the patient as it is painless . Half hour after the application of the photosensitising cream the patient is exposed to the sun for 2.5 hours. The next days a mild redness is observed and exfoliation which lasts foe 5-7 days.
It is a particularly popular treatment in our clinic for the treatment of extensive areas such as the whole face, chest, upper limbs and legs.
For individual lesions usually traditional phototherapy is preferred .
