Monochromatic UVB therapy for Psoriasis and Vitiligo
The EXCIMER 308 system is a handheld system for intense monochromatic UVB therapy, treating autoimmune diseases of the skin such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Using a 308nm wavelength which replicates the wavelength of the excimer laser, EXCIMER 308 allows you to treat patients quickly and effectively with the benefits of a lighter weight system that offers greater flexibility, lower investment costs, no consumables and greater ease of use.
- Clinically-proven- with effectiveness matching that of an excimer laser
- Focused treatment- with maximum protection of surrounding skin
- Pain-free with no downtime
- Compact, portable system
- Cost-effective- with low operation costs and maintenance-free technology
The 308nm wavelength is ideally suited for treatment of UV sensitive skin diseases such as psoriasis and vitiligo. The EXCIMER 308 system may also be used to treat other skin diseases that stem from immune system dysfunction. UVB radiation has an immune modelling effect which can normalise pathologically altered cellular activities. The ideal indications are persistent, localised lesions.
Narrow-band UVB light therapy is considered the most effective approach for the treatment of vitiligo- with the fewest side effects. The EXCIMER 308 achieves results that verifiably match those of an excimer laser, restoring pigment in the affected skin. With selective application of UVB radiation on the lesions, surrounding healthy tissue remains unexposed and protected.
Additional indications for UVB light therapy include:
Diverse atopic eczema and atopic dermatitis
Erythema anulare centrifugum (EAC)
With high power density and focused lesion targeting, the EXCIMER 308 is an outstanding treatment solution for therapy of localized, persistent psoriasis plaques on the elbows, knees, hands, feet and scalp. Treatment results are identical to those of an excimer laser, with persistent plaques visibly reduced or eliminated after 5-10 treatment sessions.
