“Psoriasis” is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages (about 2% of the population). There is a genetic predisposition
to psoriasis (it tends to run in families). It presents as chronic red scaly plaques with well-defined edges that can involve any part of
the body, usually the scalp, knees, and elbows.
Monochromatic UVB light has established itself for the treatment
of various autoimmune skin diseases. The EXCIMER 308 SYSTEM is small, handy treatment solution for intense monochromatic UVB phototherapy. With 308nm, it applies the same wavelength as an excimer laser and achieves identical results1, but without expensive, bulky laser technology. Treatments with the EXCIMER 308 SYSTEM are especially intense and effective. The powerful system with its 16 cm2 spot precisely targets the lesions, leaving healthy skin unexposed.
The EXCIMER 308 SYSTEM achieves excellent results for psoriasis, identical to those of an excimer laser which is clinically proven. The targeting of localized, persistent psoriasis plaques allows high dose treatments for fast visible results and high patient satisfaction. The surrounding, healthy tissue is spared.
Monochromatic UVB light is described as an effective approach for the treatment of vitiligo with few side effects.3,4 The handheld EXCIMER 308 SYSTEM gets results in vitiligo treatments that match those of a laser.
