Clinical Phototherapy:
The use of ultraviolet light in the treatment of photo-responsive skin diseases is safe, highly effective and time tested - making it an essential tool in dermatology offices of the 21st century. Dermacare has consistently led the clinical market place with innovations such as integrating dosimetry, built in treatment protocols, a patient database and EMR compatibility to make the delivery of phototherapy safe for patients and trouble-free for physicians and their staff.
Photoresponsive Conditions of The Skin:
Due to research in the field of photomedicine, the list of diseases that are effectively treated by ultroviolet light continues to grow. It is well known that psoriasis, vitiligo and atopic dermatilis respond favorably, but studies now show that UVA1 is effective for scleroderma and psoriasis in HIV+ patients and visible light works well for acne and actinic keratoses. Physicians trust Dermacare to design light-based medical devices so that their patients can reap the benefits fo the latest research.
Photoresponsive Diseases of the Skin:
Although sunlight has an association with medical treatment from at least as far back as the classical Athens era of ancient Greek medicine, including favorable mentions from Herodotus and Hippocrates, a scientific approach to photomedicine is a relatively recent development dating to Niels Finsen’s work in the late 19th century. Finsen won the 1903 Nobel prize for his work using arc lamp sources and to treat lupus vulgaris and small pox, which was followed by a steady stream of phototherapy developments over the remainder of the century: broadband mercury lamps, FS fluorescent lamps, Psoralen+UVA (PUVA), and Narrowband UVB.
Currently, with some 40 years of experience with PUVA, 25 years of narrowband UVB, and 20 years of UVA1, a large variety of diseases have been successfully treated with phototherapy, ranging from the very common such as eczema and psoriasis to the very rare such as cutaneous GVHD. 

Ultraviolet Phototherapy:
Since the earliest of times, when sunlight was the only source, it has been recoginized that light can heal. Over time, researchers were able to mimic specific wavelength in order to safely harness the therapeutic rays while eliminating the damaging ones. Phototherapy is the use of these therapeutic rays to treat specific skin conditions.
 A). Whole Body Chamber:

The apparatus have computerized systems which calculates required amount of light therapy and gives customized treatment.

Conventional UVA & latest narrow band UV B (NB UVB):

Narrow Band UVB is a proven apparatus in the treatment of psoriasis and the most effective phototherapy treatment. The promising results are obtained in the treatment of Psoriasiswhich makes it as best option of choice in the phototherapy treatment.. 
Why Narrow Band UVB is different...
A conventional broad band UVB lamp emits wavelengths ranging from 280-330 NM. And narrow Band UVB virtually eliminates superfluous and harmful UV wavelengths 311-312 NM.
The Clinical studies shown that for the therapeutic effectiveness of UVBthe range of 295-313nm have to be maintained as the wavelengths below 300 NM causes erythema or severe burning increasing the risk of skin cancer.
Benefits of Narrow Band Phototherapy…
Higher intensities and longer exposure times
Maximum benefit from phototherapy to the Patient
Shorter course of treatment
Avoid the danger of serious burning from sub-erythemal exposure Longer remission periods after treatment no therapy required up to 12 months.
