Psoriasis, dermatitis, neurodermatitis, vitiligo, etc. are carried out in the MC "Bogolyuby" by the method of narrow-band medium-wave phototherapy.
A photobooth from WALDMANN (Germany) is used for this with TL-1 lamps, which generate radiation in the wavelength range of 310-315 nm with maximum emission at a wavelength of 311 nm.
This method allows you to achieve positive results in most cases without the use of drug therapy.
The photo booth also helps to cleanse the skin in case of atopic dermatitis, cathedral dermatitis, acne, alopecia areata, lichen planus. Treatment is carried out in courses of 10-20 meanings 1-2 times a year. The number, duration and intensity of therapy is determined by the doctor.
Papillomas, warts, nevi and other skin neoplasms removal carried out by the apparatus SURGITRON (EllmanInc, USA).
Surgitron, which is used in Bogoliuby MC, is the only one in the region with the possibility of precise electronic power control in each mode of operation.
Dermatoscopy in our medical center is carried out with an innovative digital dermatoscope DERMASKOPE polarizer HR 200 (DinoLiteEurope, Netherlands), which allows you to examine neoplasms at different degrees of magnification (from 10x to 200x) and in special anti-reflective polarizing illumination.
Digital technology allows you to save dermatoscopic images in an individual database of each patient, print them, and, if necessary, consult with leading specialists in Ukraine and the Netherlands (KSYOSTeleMedicalCentre, Antwerp, Netherlands).
Сургітрон (Surgitron)- - This is a radio wave surgery apparatus manufactured by the American company "ELLMAN International". Used to remove warts, papillomas, nevi, areas of dysplasia (erosion) of the cervix.
The method of treatment for Surgitron is called radio wave surgery, radio wave coagulation, or radio wave excision..
The basis of Surgitron's work is high frequency radio waves (4.0 MHz). Such waves cause evaporation of liquid inside skin cells or mucous membranes. That is, the cells themselves actually evaporate. In this case, the surrounding cells, to which the radio wave is not directed, are not injured. Therefore, the consequences are milder - the incidence of scars on the skin after exposure to a radio knife is much less than after exposure to a laser or other methods.
This is why radio wave treatment is often used on the face, cervix and genitals, especially in women who have never given birth. That is, where there is very delicate and thin skin or mucous membrane, and where scar formation is undesirable.
- - When using an electrocoagulator, we also get a burn of the surrounding tissues (high temperature of the working element, a long time of its contact with the skin) and, as a result: long-term pain in the places of removal, a long healing period, a high probability of scar formation.
- - When using liquid nitrogen (cryosurgery), a blister (often with blood) is formed at the site of exposure, severe pain after removal for up to two days, long-term healing, scarring.
- - When using a laser, the wound heals a little longer, there is a greater likelihood of scarring, but the most important thing is that there is no precise control by the doctor regarding the depth of the effect.
