The Vitilox® UVB Home Lamp is the latest addition in our UVB lamp products.
This new product is similar to our UVB Pro Lamp, with the exception that the timer unit is situated on a new design 'Base Unit' that has the advantage of making the physical UVB Lamp lighter, and of course the lamp is very well priced!
It is easy to use, compact, and it’s quick access to the ‘Timer’ control and the ability to clip on the ‘Comb’ for distance control, is a huge advantage to both Vitiligo, Eczema, Psoriasis and Pityriasis Rosea users.
Phototherapy is an established treatment option that typically provides positive results in at least 80% of the cases. Prescription drugs, on the other hand, are suitable for fewer people, and produce results that only provide clearance of about 45% to 60%, plus some severe side effects.
UVB Phototherapy is one of the least costly treatments in terms of attaining treatment success, and possibly the safest way to manage your condition. Furthermore, home UVB phototherapy is suggested to patients who need long-term UVB as a maintenance treatment to eliminate most of the main inconveniences of phototherapy, like costs for each treatment session, frequent travel to the phototherapy center, and lost time from school or work.
In general, phototherapy shows improvement in your Vitiligo, Eczema, Psoriasis, or other skin condition in just a few sessions. And, with a portable UVB lamp, you can treat your skin disorder in the convenience of your own home
The first step is to do the calibration.
You need to take one (neutral) area of your body, like the underarm, chest, or an area where the skin is not too thick or too thin.
The underarm works well. Note that you would calibrate the lamp on an area where you have the Vitiligo spot or patch.
Apply our Vitilox Cream onto that area, and wait 5 minutes for it to absorb.
The lamp can then be place over the white patch, and the distance kept constant with the comb. The comb should be touching the skin.
Put the goggles on, and set the timer on the lamp to 30 seconds to begin with. Switch the lamp on and keep it on this one patch or spot.
Once it switches off, wait 12 hours. The white area you treated should turn a slight reddish colour. If not, repeat the exercise on ANOTHER area, raising the time up by 10 seconds until the reddish colour is realized.
Once you see the slightly pinkish colour, your calibration is complete and you will then treat the rest of your body in the same way.
If you are treating your face, you would need a second person to help you. They would wear the goggles, and you would need to make sure your eyes are fully closed. Don’t look directly at the light without goggles as it may damage your eyes.
After treating an area of your body, you need to wait 3 days before returning to that area with the lamp. The skin needs to recover from the treatment.
