Phototherapy

What is Phototherapy?

Phototherapy is the use of light to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, and other skin disorders. In treatments, the skin is exposed to a special type of light which comes from a medical device commonly referred to as a phototherapy unit. These units range from hand-held and table-top devices for spot treatment of small areas to cabinet or “walk-in” units for patients requiring full body treatment. The medical lamps in these phototherapy units emit ultraviolet (UV) light in a wavelength that creates changes within the skin cells. The cells in most patients then begin to behave normally, which reduces or eliminates the symptoms of the skin disease.*

Daavlin 3 Series: Full Body Cabinet is a two-door design that has a large and comfortable interior. This machine is wheel chair accessible and has two quiet, yet powerful fans that are mounted at the top of the unit for comfort.

Daavlin M Series: Hand/Foot Unit is designed for effective and efficient treatment of the hands or feet, the M Series is a perfect complement to the 3 Series Cabinet.
