BENEFITS OF OUR LAMPS AND UV B TREATMENT.
PLEASE TAKE FEW SECONDS TO READ:
> SAVE MONEY !
Buying a lamp will save you a lot of money as it proves to be less expensive compared to cabin UV treatments that are hardly refunded and limited in numbers by Social Care.
> STAY AT HOME !
This treatment can be done at home when you want and at your rhythm.
No need to go to the clinic or to your dermatologist to make UV in cabins. No more wasted time in car, mileage or money for gas.
Young and old people not / no more driving or depending on public transportation can do their own treatment at home.
No more appointments to schedule in advance or endless phone calls to book them !
> NO MORE CONSTRAINTS !
UV B treatment is done without taking any photosensitive agent (like psoralens), therefore no reminders or treatments missed.
End of digestive troubles, headhaches and interdiction to expose your body to the sun for 24 hours...
> SAVE TIME !
UV B treatment needs less exposure time compared to UV A.
The UV B rays penetrate exactly at the relevant skin depth and are much more effective than UV A for the treatment of Psoriasis and Vitiligo.
> INTELLIGENT AND TARGETED TREATMENT !
With our lamps, only the areas to be treated are exposed to UV.
The treatment will illuminate only the parts that are impacted by Psoriasis or Vitiligo, unlike cabin treatments in which all your body takes UV, even where not needed.
UV B at 311 nanometer wavelength (311 nm narrow band) is the most adapted treatment for Psoriasis and Vitiligo: your skin takes only UV B (exit the A and C) and only the wavelength useful for the treatment.
> SECURITY !
The lamp itself and the UV B tube have CE marking and are cerified CE (EC). Warranty is 1 year. Safety full anti-UV goggles are included whatever product bought.
We use "Philips" UV B tubes in all our products. Philips is the most worldwide recognized brand in this industry for treatment of these skin diseases.
The narrow UV B spectrum at 311 nm limits the risks of sunstroke / skin problems compared to full UV, full UV A or full UV B spectrums.
Thus, UV B at 311 nm do not limit your sun capital as much as UV A and are much less harmful than the latter which pose the most problem for premature ageing of the skin.
> COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER TREATMENTS IN PROGRESS !
Any local treatment based on creams, ointment, oils... can be continued.
Just proceed with UV exposure before applying any local treatment like a cream as it can stop penetration of the rays.
> EASY TO USE:
All our lamps are delivered with a ONE PAGE quick-start guide to read to be able to start your treatment as quickly as possible.
The full manual is also included.
The lifetime of the tube is several thousands of hours, so much more than necessary to any treatment.
Tubes of replacement are sold exclusively to our customers if those inopportunely broke the tube by making it fall.
> QUICK DELIVERY:
All our products are in stock. We dispatch the next business day if your order is paid before midday.
Fast delivery is guaranteed in Europe and is quick for rest of the world. Few days can sometimes apply for treatment by local customs outside European Union.
3 copies of customs declaration and invoice are included in any shipment outside the Euopean Union.
All our lamps are delivered in a white hard-bound sealed parcel, without any indication of its content, therefore non identifiable by anyone from the post office employees to roommates or any person receiving the parcel for you.
Home UVB phototherapy for Psoriasis :
Present in natural sunlight, UVB is an effective treatment for psoriasis.
UVB penetrates the skin and slows the growth of affected skin cells.
Treatment involves exposing the skin to an artificial UVB light source.
There are two types of UVB treatment, broad band and narrow band. The major difference between them is that narrow band UVB light bulbs (311 Nm) release a smaller range of ultraviolet light.
Studies indicate that narrow-band UVB clears psoriasis faster and produces longer remissions than broad-band UVB or standard PUVA-therapy.
More effective but also faster, less time consuming and safer. Treating psoriasis with a UVB light unit at home is an economical and convenient choice for many people.
Like phototherapy in a clinic, it requires a consistent treatment schedule.
UVB is light with a short wavelength that is absorbed in the skin's epidermis. An artificial source can be used to treat psoriasis.
A newer type of UVB, called narrowband UVB, emits the part of the ultraviolet light spectrum band that is most helpful for psoriasis.
Narrowband UVB treatment is superior to broadband UVB. It is gaining in popularity because it does help and is more convenient than in-clinic UVB or PUVA.
At first, patients may require several treatments of narrowband UVB spaced close together to improve their skin.
Once the skin has shown improvement, a maintenance treatment once each week may be all that is necessary.
For an effective cure, start with very short exposure periods of 30 seconds maximum per area per day during 7 days, then, according to the results, keep or increase gradually the exposure time up to 60 seconds maximum per area per day: goal is to find the minimum daily exposure time needed to solve the skin disease.
As already stressed: treatment by short exposures on a regular basis give the best results.
The treatment should never exceed 2 weeks uninterrupted, then stop during 1 week and start again this cycle.
Treat only the areas impacted by Psoriasis.
