Phovia® is healing with the speed of light.
Phovia LED Lamp & Gel
Phovia works with the skin’s natural healing response to help skin and wounds heal more quickly.
The Phovia kit has two components:
The combination of light and chromophore gel helps speed up cell regeneration and growth. This leads to a quicker, and more complete, healing time.1

When & Where to Apply Phovia
Phovia treatment can be used to help heal canine, feline, and equine dermatological conditions including:
*As part of or in support of treatment protocols or program.
Phovia can be used with other treatments
Phovia can work in conjunction with additional at-home treatments for the specific skin condition as required and recommended by the veterinarian. Phovia treatment has been proven to speed healing time when compared to antibiotic and topical treatments alone.2
The effectiveness of Phovia used alone or in combination with systemic antibiotics to manage deep pyoderma has been demonstrated in a prospective, blinded, randomized controlled trial.3
How Phovia is different than laser therapy
Traditional therapy laser requires very precise positioning to ensure optimal beam delivery intensity and often covers a smaller treatment area.4 In addition, lasers require more frequent and longer treatments, up to 15 minutes each.
While most light therapy systems are limited to a single wavelength, addressing at most one level of the skin, the Phovia chromophores release FLE at multiple wavelengths, giving multiple beneficial cellular responses simultaneously.
The safety of Phovia
Despite exerting a biological effect, the Phovia system is generally very safe for users and pets when used according to instructions or as directed.5,6 However, any intervention with an impact on an animal’s physiology can have side effects.
Phovia is not indicated for use in photosensitivity conditions (where additional light energy may trigger recrudescence), such as porphyria or medication with photosensitizing agents (particularly antimicrobials in the tetracycline class, clofamizine, dacarbazine, dapsone, griseofulvin, coal tar, or topical retinoids).
When they occur, side effects could include hair color change, erythema that regresses within 6-12 hours, skin hyperpigmentation, and/or transient pain at the wound site.
