Ultraviolet light treatment makes use of a specific band of the nonvisible light spectrum to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, and other skin diseases. It may be used alone or in combination with drugs applied topically or taken internally. Recent light therapy instruments employ LED technology, making them smaller and more agreeable to users; and we are going to review two UVB lamps so you can decide on which product is best for you.
The Dermalight 80 UV-B Phototherapy Lamp for Psoriasis, Vitiligo, and Eczema is a safe, clinically-proven tool in treating psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, and other similar skin conditions. It uses UV-B/311nm narrowband lamps that have an exact and characteristic spectral energy distribution, with an emission peak at 311nm, minimizing possible side effects, such as itching and redness.
The Dermalight 80 UV-B Phototherapy Lamp may be used on all parts of the body, including the scalp. It comes with a comb attachment especially for scalp use, but may also be put to use as a distance guard when treating other parts of the body. It is lightweight and portable so you can take it anywhere with you. It also comes with good quality UV goggles to protect your eyes and LCD timer for accurate timing of treatments. It is medically certified for psoriasis treatment, and it is made in Germany. The user manual gives clear instructions and it is very user friendly.
The Dermalight 80 UV-B Lamp is a bit high priced. And, because of its size, you can only treat one area at a time. If you have a large part of your body covered with psoriasis, it may take some time to finish with the process. Additionally, it is not programmable; you need to use a separate timer when operating and shut if off manually.
Dermalight comes with a comb attachment, AC adapter, LCD timer, UV goggles, and a user manual.
The Dermalight 80 UV-B Phototherapy Lamp for Psoriasis, Vitiligo, and Eczema can be effectively used to treat the skin and scalp; although it does take some time to make the condition disappear entirely, especially if you are affected in several areas of the body. Still, with patience and proper use of the lamp, it does bring in positive results. Compared to expensive miracle creams, this product will give all your money’s worth.
The DermaHealer UV-B Phototherapy Lamp for Psoriasis, Vitiligo, and Eczema makes use of original Philips™ UV-B/311nm narrowband lamps with a specific wavelength similar to that of the sun’s natural spectrum in treating eczema, hyperbilirubin, psoriasis, vitiligo, and other skin diseases. It is designed for home use, but may come in handy for dermatologists and medical clinics.
The DermaHealer UV-B Phototherapy Lamp has an integrated digital programming timer for precise exposure treatment. It is portable, lightweight, and safe so you can bring it even when you go on out of town trips. You don’t need a prescription to own one. It is reasonably priced, even though it uses Philips, a trusted and top quality brand in lights, for its narrowband lamps.
Like the Dermalight, the DermaHealer UV-B Lamp can only be used at one small area at a time. Though it promises that you only need to use it for a few minutes every few days to treat several areas of the body, you need more patience and more time. Also, its instruction manual is a little less easy to understand for the non-technical user.
DermaHealer comes with a comb attachment, AC adapter, UV goggles, and user manual.
The DermaHealer is much more affordable compared to other UVB lamps. Plus, its integrated digital programming keeps you safe from over exposure. And since it’s using Philips narrowband lamps, you can be assured of its high quality.
