The Rhinolight® intranasal phototherapy
Different phototherapies have been used successfully in dermatology (psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, eczema, etc.) for decades. Scientific facts prove that inflammatory processes are very similar in the nose and in the skin. Therefore the inventors had the idea to experiment the efficient light composition to be used in the nose which treats allergy by reducing allergic complaints such as runny nose, sneezing, the annoying nasal itching, unbearable blockage and the complications like sinusitis and nasal polyposis.
During the initial research drugs and phototherapy were combined. After that symptoms of patients had significantly improved, Rhinolight® was applied in itself. Rhinolight® has a beneficial effect on a number of immunological processes in the nose. This therapy is recommended for everyone not satisfied with the current medication or those looking for an alternative treatment. The intranasal Rhinolight® phototherapy is effective for any kind of allergic rhinitis regardless of the type of the triggering allergen.
