The 6 benefits of FotoSan® LAD treatment:
"You'll feel better tomorrow" is probably the most uttered phrase by doctors and dentists of all time. Imagine if the effect was immediate instead!
You have a patient in the chair with an acute infection. You treat with FotoSan® for a minute or two, and before the patient leaves the chair, the symptoms are gone.
The LAD effect is instantaneous, as the chemical reaction takes only a fraction of a second.
Effective against all microorganisms
Can you imagine a product that kills ALL microorganisms? Not just a few bacteria, but all bacteria, and not just bacteria, but viruses and fungi?
FotoSan® is such a product - of course with the limitations of the application technology:
1) The photosensitizer must be able to reach the target
2) The light must be able to reach the photosensitizer.
If you have optimal conditions, you will see the results!
Drugs are generally dose-dependent, but in this context, it means that with LAD, without side effects or risks, you can treat until the desired effect is achieved. All microorganisms are (of course) not equally sensitive to LAD treatment. Larger and more complex cell structures need more treatment (i.e. higher dose). However, the basic principle remains - as long as you treat long enough, all microorganisms will die.
Treatment can be repeated indefinitely
This property is a logical consequence of the above properties but deserves to be highlighted. Why? Yes, you may choose to treat a PA patient with systemic antibiotics, but what about next time? Will you repeat it every 3 or 6 months for the rest of your life, if necessary? No, of course not - nor should it be necessary with LAD. BUT you can choose to treat as often as required without side effects or risks.
No development of resistance
One of the biggest challenges in healthcare is the development of 'superbugs'. Genetic conditions dictate, in principle, that bacteria develop resistance to all antibiotics over time. But when the destructive effect occurs in a fraction of a second, this is not a risk.
No side effects
No side effects of any kind have been reported from the treatment. This is because the photosensitizer does not bind to the surface of normal human cells, but rather to all types of microorganisms. The reactive oxygen compounds (ROS) produced have an extremely short lifetime (nanoseconds). The photosensitizers used have a much lower affinity for mammalian cells, so no negative effects are seen on them, and hence no side effects in practice from the treatment.
