Abstract

Photo Dynamic Therapy (PTD) is an increasingly used technique in Dermatology and Dermocosmetics. PDT has a wide range of medical applications for the treatment of extended cutaneous cancer, offering also very good results in the treatment of basal cell carcinoma, Bowen's disease, actinic keratosis, acne, rosacea and in cutaneous rejuvenation. The sensitizers and light sources used for photoacti-vation are also more and more varied but there is still no consensus regarding methods and energy dosage. This study describes material and methods which are currently available and discusses a few details, that based on our own experience, can improve results. Five illustrative cases of different conditions are presented.
