WHAT IS PHOTOTHERAPY?
Phototherapy – also known as light therapy – is a medical technique involving exposure to specific wavelengths of light. It is used in dermatology clinics around the world to treat various skin conditions. Exposure to UV-B light is often used to treat conditions such as psoriasis, alopecia areata and vitiligo.

SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
UV-B light can be either broadband or narrowband, with narrowband being the beneficial light found naturally in sunlight. The Dermalight 80 UV-B produces narrowband 311nm UV-B light, the safest, most effective wavelength for treating skin conditions.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY
The Dermalight 80 UV-B is part of Dr Hönle’s state-of-the-art Dermalight range of phototherapy products. Developed with user-friendliness in mind, all the machines in the range are easy to use, featuring simple controls and a clear text LCD display.

TREATS PSORIASIS, ALOPECIA AREATA AND VITILOGO WITH UV-B LIGHT
Medically certified, the Dermalight 80 UV-B is designed to effectively treat localised psoriasis, alopecia areata and vitiligo all over the body with 311nm narrowband UV-B light.

SPECIAL ATTACHMENT FOR SCALP TREATMENT
The Dermalight 80 UV-B comes with a special comb attachment to help treat skin above the hairline, which is so often a problem area. With its gentle round bristles, the UV light is projected through the patient’s hair directly onto the scalp, delivering a much more effective treatment.

IDEAL FOR TREATMENTS AT HOME
The Dermalight 80 UV-B is ideal for home use. Its superior lightweight construction provides a wide treatment area across short time periods, making it ideal for home-based phototherapy treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS PSORIASIS?
Psoriasis is a non-contagious, chronic skin disorder that often causes red patches to appear on the skin, commonly on the elbows and knees, but they can also be found within the hairline, on the face and in the fingernails. These patches of skin are often inflamed, and subject to excessive skin production, which can lead to severe itching, social embarrassment, and low self-confidence. If topical treatments such as ointments or creams have not proven successful, UV-B treatment is considered the next step, as it is known to have excellent results in reducing psoriasis symptoms.

WHAT IS VITILOGO?
Vitiligo is a condition that causes de-pigmentation in patches or areas of skin. It is caused when the cells which control pigmentation die, become damaged or malfunction.  As opposed to cosmetic camouflage which merely covers up the problem areas, UV-B treatment has been shown to be exceptionally successful in treating the condition, as it actually regenerates the damaged cells, enabling the re-pigmentation of the skin.
