Home UVB Phototherapy Benefits
Save Travel Costs
Eliminates time consuming trips to the phototherapy clinic. Stop driving, parking, and waiting.
Efficient & Private
Go directly from a shower or bath to your UVB-NB lights, in the privacy of your own home, anytime you want. UVB Narrowband treatments are only minutes long.
Accessible & Affordable
Provides access for those too far from a clinic. The government’s own “formulary” says that phototherapy is to be tried before resorting to expensive and risky biologic drugs.
Stay On Schedule
Compared to phototherapy at a clinic, home phototherapy makes it much easier to keep your treatment schedule. Fewer missed treatments means much better results!
Health Insurance Coverage
Many private insurance plans will cover the purchase, or you can claim it as a Medical Expense Tax Credit on your Canadian Income Tax return.
Safe & Effective
Many decades of use has shown that UVB phototherapy has minimal risk of skin cancer. It’s drug-free and safe for children and pregnant women.
Can reduce and often eliminate the use of messy topical creams and ointments; saving time, money, and hassle.
A Long-Term Solution
Can be safely used to control your skin disease for many decades, with the bonus of keeping your Vitamin D at significantly elevated levels for other health benefits. Most people with skin diseases are also Vitamin D deficient.
Best of the Sun
It is the naturally occurring UVB in sunlight that heals psoriasis and makes Vitamin D in the skin. SolRx devices make this same UVB using special medical fluorescent lamps.
Skin Better in the Summer?
Many psoriasis sufferers find that their skin gets better in the summer. This is a great indication that UVB phototherapy will be effective.
Home UV light therapy units require practically no maintenance. The bulbs last 5 to 10 years or longer.
Boost Your Vitamin D
UVB light makes large amounts of Vitamin D in your skin. Not surprisingly, most people living far away from the earth’s equator are Vitamin D deficient, especially in the winter.
With their digital countdown timers and predictable lamp output, SolRx devices provide much more consistent UVB dosing than natural sunlight. It is important to avoid skin burns.
Clinics Prove It
Phototherapy works – there are over 100 government funded clinics in Canada. They can be found in hospitals, dermatologist’s offices and some physiotherapy clinics.
Compatible With Other Treatments
UVB can be safely used in conjunction with most other treatments including topicals and biologics.
Only the Best Wavelengths
SolRx Narrowband UVB devices provide only the most therapeutic wavelengths of UV light, while minimizing the potentially harmful non-therapeutic wavelengths.
“The gentleman who answered the phone when I called once was great! Based on use from March to December it has improved about 50%… I am so pleased SOMETHING is working. It is easy and chemical free! I am hopeful that one day all the spots will fill in and that I won’t have to use it other than for maintenance. Sure, it’s a great system.”
Tiffany, ON, Canada – Vitiligo patient
“My chronic eczema has improved to a state of being a manageable condition. My overall satisfaction level with this product is excellent. I previously needed to attend the dermatologists office x3/week. To be able to achieve this therapy at home is very convenient!“
Steve, BC, Canada
“My condition has improved 100%. I am 100% satisfied with the product and wish I had done this years ago. Not only do I feel better, I save a lot on prescription cost. More people should be aware of this method of treatment.“
