With its wavelength of 308 nm, the 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM is an effective treatment solution for autoimmune diseases of the skin such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Monochromatic UVB therapy for Psoriasis and Vitiligo The 308 Excimer system is a handheld system for intense monochromatic UVB therapy, treating autoimmune diseases of the skin such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Compact, portable system. Narrow-band UVB light therapy is considered the most effective approach for the treatment of vitiligo- with the fewest side effects. There is a link between artificial UV light exposure and an increased risk of developing skin cancer. In an open-label randomized controlled trial comparing two established protocols, oral methoxsalen UVA treatments three times per week at home with a portable facial tanning unit were found to be as effective as inpatient, biweekly trioxsalen bath UVA treatments 38. Hofer A, Cerroni L, Kerl H, Wolf P. Narrowband (311-nm) UV-B therapy for small plaque parapsoriasis and early-stage mycosis fungoides. Aetna considers psoralens and ultraviolet A light (PUVA) treatments medically necessary for the following conditions after conventional therapies have failed:. Wolf P. Narrowband (311-nm) UVB therapy for small plaque parapsoriasis and early-stage mycosis fungoides.
In a nonexcimer light study, high doses cleared the most plaques. It has been demonstrated that some lesional tissue (psoriatic plaque for example) can withstand much more UVB radiation than healthy tissue. The apparatus and method of this invention provides targeted UVB phototherapy using a much smaller apparatus and an inexpensive UVB lamp as the radiation source. Narrowband UVB phototherapy for the treatment of psoriasis: a review and update. The Psoriasis Severity Index (PSI) was measured every 2 weeks for 16 weeks.
Little is known about the physiological mechanisms related to low-intensity laser therapy (LILT), particularly in acute inflammation and subsequent wound healing. OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of the 308-nm excimer laser in the treatment of alopecia areata. Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Panonica Adriat 2007 Mar 16(1) 26-30. Targeted radiation with the UVB lamp is effective for the treatment of plaque-type psoriasis, requiring as few as six sessions and achieving moderately long remission. Three different psoriaticlesions were treated with either the xenon chloride 308 nm excimer laser,the 308 nm excimer lamp, or 311 nm NB-UVB three times per week. (59) treated 16 patients with the 308 nm excimer laser orwith the 308 nm lamp with an accelerated scheme three times per week. 308nm Excimer UV-light for Vitiligo and Psoriasis. Big light spot/ High energy. Small Size, Lower Weight, Effective ROI. Portability, pain free, No side effects.
A Review Of Targeted Ultraviolet B Phototherapy For Psoriasis
Bath PUVA treatment for psoriasis was first reported by Fischer and Alsins in 1976. 75 mg/L solution of 8-methoxypsoralen (prepared as above) in a small plastic tub or a basin for 20 minutes and then patted dry. 33 Lichen planusOut of 19 patients with lichen planus in one study, all 16 with widespread papular lesions healed completely with bath PUVA. UVB 308-nm excimer light and bath PUVA: Combination therapy is very effective in the treatment of prurigo nodularis.
