In brief: Photodynamic therapy

Photodynamic therapy (pdt) involves activation of a photosensitizer by visible light in the presence of oxygen to produce reactive oxygen radicals which selectively destroys the target tissue.
It is an effective therapy to treat certain conditions. However it is not full proof. However practically no therapy is full proof . It's usefulness depends on what you want to use it for example ablation.
