Duration Of Photizo Treatment:
The patient had to stay in the hospital during the week and was scheduled for a final skin graft. The home care nurse suggested to the surgeons to treat the patient with the Photizo® device during the weekend and postpone the surgery. The doctors agreed and waited for the results. The first Photizo® treatment (once a day for 6 minutes) was started on 29 October 2005. The base treatment was L-Mesitran Soft. Treatment results 2 days later show already a remarkable improvement. The patient was sent back to the hospital after the weekend and there was no Photizo® treatment for the following two weeks.
