Video launch: Photonics PPP project PHOS-ISTOS develops laser fabric that cures skin diseases

Chronic skin conditions such as Actinic Keratosis, acne, and psoriasis can now be treated in a single 150-minute appointment, thanks to a new wearable laser that blasts the skin with light.

French scientists at 'Texinov Medical Textiles', have developed a knitted laser fabric that blasts the skin with light, giving treatment to enflamed skin or lesions over a 2-and-a-half-hour appointment.

The PHOS-ISTOS project is funded by the European Commission under the Photonics PPP.

Photonics21 has produced a video which explains the treatment in detail.
