Skin cancer treatment - photodynamic therapy

At the derma competence center, Dermatologist Dr. Schnitzler administers photodynamic therapy standardized with the drug Metvix® cream and the Aktilite® LED lamp from Galderma®. This treatment is especially effective in treating non-melanoma skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma) and its preliminary stages (actinic keratosis, Bowen’s disease) on the face and scalp. This is a standardized procedure to achieve the best possible therapeutic result and to almost completely exclude the risk of side effects. The therapy is also conducted with an additional air-cooling device, which makes the treatment more tolerable. Most patients consider the procedure to be uncomfortable but not painful.
