Photodynamic Laser is a therapy based on the stimulation of a light-sensitive substance (photosensitizer) which is infused into the bloodstream, injected locally or applied topically. The photosensitizer binds with high specificity to pathologically changed tissue. When stimulated by (laser) light, active oxygen radicals form and destroy this tissue without harming the surrounding healthy ones.
