Since ancient times, it is known that with some skin diseases there is an improvement in the summer and worse in the cold season. The oldest schools of medicine knew about the healing power of sunlight. Healers of Ancient Egypt and Assyria, Ancient Greece and Rome used sunbathing in their practices; the healing effects of the sun have been repeatedly mentioned in the treatises of Hippocrates.
In our time, scientists have investigated that the reason for such a beneficial effect of the sun is mainly the effect of ultraviolet radiation.
Ultraviolet rays are a component of the spectrum of solar radiation reaching the earth's surface next to visible light and infrared rays. The proportion of ultraviolet rays in the solar spectrum is about 10%.
The spectrum of UV rays is divided into three ranges according to the wavelength, which differ in their effect on the skin:
When passing through the atmosphere, all UVC rays and most of the UVB rays are absorbed and only all UVA and a small part of UVB radiation reach the surface.
Numerous studies, experiments, and the use of emitters of different spectra have led to the conclusion that it is precisely the mid-range (UVB) rays that have the highest efficiency for certain skin diseases, and of these, 311 nm waves. However, the proper use of such rays does not cause a large number of side effects. In terms of safety and efficacy, UVB 311 nm is unrivaled. The efficiency coefficient reaches 0.8 for individual pathologies. This means that in 8 out of 10 patients, a significant improvement is achieved after treatment with UVB 311 nm waves.
Phototherapy UVB 311 nm has an immunocorrective effect, anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous effect, normalizes the balance of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory factors in the affected skin. inhibits excessive cell division, a pronounced antiallergic effect and affects the metabolism of vitamin D.
It is used for procedures a photocabin of WALDMANN company (Germany) with TL-1 lamps generating radiation in the wavelength range 310-315 nm with a maximum emission at a wavelength of 311 nm.
The procedure is carried out 3 times a week.
The duration is from a few seconds to several minutes, which allows you to receive full treatment to patients who lead an active lifestyle.
The course of procedures is determined individually.
Since treatment takes place without taking photosensitizers, side effects are minimal and are associated only with the action of ultraviolet radiation. Numerous domestic and foreign studies confirm the fact that the development of skin tumors after phototherapy does not occur.
The use of UVB 311 nm is the "gold" standard in the non-drug treatment of chronic dermatoses. This is the shortest, safest way to achieve clinical remission and improve the quality of life of our patients.
