Could your pet benefit from Phovia Fluorescent Light Therapy?

Skin conditions, like hot spots, infections and even wounds, can be both uncomfortable and painful for your pet. At Live Oak Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to delivering the most innovative and effective treatment options to our patients. Phovia Fluorescent Light Therapy is a non-invasive way to speed healing and provide much-needed relief for a wide variety of dermatological ailments.

What is Phovia Fluorescent Light Therapy?

Phovia therapy consists of a two-part process which includes the use of an LED lamp and a special chromophore gel. Unlike traditional laser therapy, this clinically proven system produces fluorescent light energy at multiple wavelengths, allowing it to trigger deeper beneficial responses at several skin layers. The result is enhanced collagen production, reduced inflammation, and faster healing of dermatological issues.

What Can Phovia Therapy Be Used For?

Phovia Fluorescent Light Therapy has shown to be effective in speeding the resolution of both acute and chronic skin concerns including:

  • Hot spots
  • Bite wounds
  • Lick granulomas 
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Skin infections
  • Surgical incisions

Benefits of Phovia Fluorescent Light Therapy

Phovia therapy offers a number of benefits to pets and their owners, including but not limited to:

  • Reduced Pain and Inflammation
  • Faster and More Complete Healing
  • Non-Invasive
  • Easy and Convenient
  • Cost-Effective Alternative to Surgery

What Does a Phovia Session Consist Of?

Phovia Fluorescent Light Therapy sessions are quick, easy, and completely painless for your pet. We’ll start by cleaning the treatment area and then we’ll apply the special chromophore gel. The doctor will then activate and apply the Phovia light to the affected area for a period of about two minutes. Once the session is complete, the skin will be cleaned, and your pet will be ready to go home! 

The number of recommended sessions your pet will need will depend on his or her unique circumstances. Once the doctor has had the opportunity to evaluate your pet, you will be provided with an individualized treatment plan.

If you have questions about Phovia or have a case you feel may benefit from this innovative therapy option, contact the team at Live Oak Veterinary Hospital today. We’re here to help!
