HOW TO USE UV PHOTOTHERAPY?
Step 1: please take a bath for 15 to 20 minutes to remove skin surface skin cells (scales) before treatment.
Step 2: patients need to determine the MED.
1.Intensity of the Brightwand is 7 mW/cm2
2.MED calculation method: irradiation time S = dose (J/cm2) * 1000/7 (mW/cm2)
Step 3: Undergo the first treatment within safe distance between machine and skin lesion is typically 3cm
Step 4: Evaluate the first treatment effect, then adjust the time, and distance for each further treatment.
Psoriasis:3 ~ 4 times / week, (15 ~ 20 treatments) at 40+ seconds per treatment depending on patient response/need.
Vitiligo:2 ~ 3 times / week, (30-50 treatments) at 40+ seconds per treatment depending on patient response/need.
Parapsoriasis: PUVA, UVA/UVB, NB-UVB: 4 times / week, until improvement.
- Although the method that determines radiation dosage by skin type is simple, but not as accurate as MPD or MED.
- Specific drugs may increase the skin sensitivity to light, thereby to affect the determination of skin type.
- It is also important to learn about the patient’s reaction after long-term sun exposure to determine radiation dose. If two patients are the same skin type, the slow to tan one should adopt a lower dose.
1. How to set the treatment time
According to the skin color/change, setup the time and dosage accordingly
First treatment: treat for 40 seconds
After 6 to 8 hours (post-use), if the skin color is a little red, then this is a good sign, and then keep the treatments to 40 seconds for irradiation.
After 6 to 8 hours, if there is not any color change on the skin, then add 10 seconds to the treatment time (so 50 seconds).
Keep increasing by 10 seconds until you experience a nice light red color change after 6-8 hours (post use)
After 6 to 8 hours, if the skin color is very red, reduce 10 seconds.
2. Treatment Time frequency
3 to 5 times every week, Irradiation every two days, for 2 to 3 months. Then pause treatments for 2 weeks. Continued use can be resumed as a repeat to this first frequency
3. Does normal, non-affected, skin needs to be covered?
You can cover the normal skin by using clothing when irradiation. If the normal skin, is not covered, it is also safe and no damage will occur. Only the normal skin maybe has a little red or black, but it will recover well after a certain time.
