PurLight Photodynamic Therapy: A Revolutionary Approach to Light Therapy

At PUR-FORM, we are redefining the possibilities of light therapy with our proprietary PurLight device. This cutting-edge photodynamic therapy activates specific light-sensitive compounds within the body to promote various therapeutic benefits.

What is Photodynamic Therapy?

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a new treatment method that combines light-sensitive substances, called photosensitizers, with specific wavelengths of light (distances the light travels) to selectively target and eliminate unhealthy or diseased cells. When exposed to light these photosensitizers generate reactive oxygen species that destroy these cells while leaving healthy tissues unharmed. The two photosensitizers we currently use are Methylene Blue and Curcumin.

The PurLight Advantage

Our PurLight device is a game-changer in photodynamic therapy. It allows us to directly activate two powerful photosensitizers–Curcumin and Methylene Blue–before administering them to patients through an IV. This direct light activation enhances the therapy’s effectiveness, maximizing its potential benefits.

Also, the PurLight emits multiple light colors, each tailored to activate specific photosensitizers. We are able to control the intensity and strength of the light waves, ensuring precise and targeted activation.

The Benefits of Photodynamic Therapy with PurLight

1. Targeted Treatment: Photodynamic therapy selectively targets unhealthy or abnormal cells, ensuring there is no harm to healthy tissues and reducing the need for more invasive or systemic therapies.

2. Anti-Inflammatory and Antimicrobial Effects: Both Curcumin and Methylene Blue demonstrate strong anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial (ability to inhibit the growth or kill microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites) properties, making PDT an ideal option for treating localized infections and inflammatory conditions–ultimately promoting faster healing.

3. Improved Mitochondrial Function: Photoactivated Methylene Blue and Curcumin can enhance the health and function of our cells (mitochondria), increasing cellular energy production and reducing damage from harmful substances in our bodies. This may benefit various metabolic disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and age-related conditions.

4. Neuroprotective Effects: Studies suggest that photoactivated Methylene Blue may protect neurons from degeneration and death associated with conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and stroke.

5. Enhanced Wound Healing: The antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and tissue-regenerative properties of Curcumin and Methylene Blue, combined with PDT, can facilitate faster and more effective wound healing.

6. Anti-Aging Effects: Photoactivated Methylene Blue may slow down or even reverse certain aging processes in cells by making the energy factories (mitochondria) function better, lowering damage from harmful substances, and supporting the survival of cells.
At PUR-FORM, we are committed to redefining regenerative medicine by exploring innovative therapies like photodynamic therapy with the PurLight. Our approach aims to improve patient outcomes, promote healing, and enhance overall well-being. It’s important to note that while photodynamic therapy shows promising potential, more research is needed to understand its applications and limitations fully. As with any medical treatment, it’s essential to consult a qualified healthcare professional to determine if this therapy suits your specific condition.
