    I purchased my Solarc 8-tube sun lamp back in 2003 when I lived in Canada and it has worked flawlessly since then. The only thing I had to do a few years ago was to replace the UV tubes since they have a limited life, just like any other bulb or tube. I simply ordered those from Solarc and they arrived a few days later.
    Recently, I moved to France and, once settled in, I contacted Solarc to ask if they could help me convert my lamp to 220VAC (since my Canadian lamp operates on 110VAC). I was very pleased and impressed by both the customer and technical support that I received from Solarc so many years after originally purchasing my lamp.
    I then ordered the parts required for the voltage conversion from Solarc and I received them in France about a week later. From there, Solarc gave me lots of guidance by email to help me do the conversion work myself.
    And, after disassembling the rear access panel of the lamp to carry out the conversion, I also had another pleasant discovery. The workmanship
    … More inside the lamp was very professional and the overall design was well thought out and, indeed, easy to upgrade even 19 years after it had originally been manufactured. That’s nice to see in a product, and very unusual in most products these days.
    Overall, I can say that the Solarc lamp has helped a lot in improving my psoriasis for nearly 20 years, and now I look forward to many more years of reliable operation.
    Thank you, Solarc!

    I purchased my system for psoriasis and it works great! I've been using a light therapy hand held unit for small patches on and off for a while, and it was time consuming! but this unit covers a larger area and clears it up much faster. Most creams don't work and injections are dangerous for your health! So this light therapy is the answer! The price seems a little high as my insurance wouldn't cover any of the cost, but it's worth every penny

    Everything is five star about this company. Spencer is EXCELLENT, helping us through the entire process of acquiring a prescription to delivery of a master unit. Customer service is excellent, shipping is excellent, their manual is excellent , everything about this company is perfect. My husband has whole body psoriasis and stopped received photo therapy once COVID hit the USA. He felt it was unsafe being in the light booth at his dermatologist and also hated the 30 minute drive back and forth, not to mention time waiting to even get into the booth. Buying the SolarRx 720M Master was the best investment of our lives. With just 8 treatments, his psoriasis is clearing up and it had been absolutely awful. He doesn't take drugs, and steroid creams no longer work for him.
    Photo therapy has always worked for him. So we tried working with a US company that sells similar units, but the customer service and insurance issues were a nothing but a pain. After one year of dealing
    … More with this BS, I found Solarc online , got the prescription from my husband's dermatologist , and purchased the master unit with our own money. Didn't want to deal with insurance and delays any longer. Thank goodness we did, and we would highly recommended you do the same!! Spencer will make sure that your experience with Solarc is amazingly simple and successful!!

    I have had my phototherapy unit from Solar Systems since 2006. It is 6' panel and has 6 bulbs. It has never, in 17 years, had any issue whatsoever! It's built like a beast mechanically. It has survived years of moving around and nothing has broken or stopped working. I haven't even needed a bulb replaced! I am amazed and thankful for this wonderful light therapy that has helped me with my Psoriasis. Not only does it clear a good deal of spots (with continual regular treatments) it can maintain them if I get lazy and skip a month of a treatment until they flare up again. It has been a true blessing and I also must say that the customer service at Solarc Systems is top notch. They are responsive and friendly! I still remember when my unit was delivered to my door in 2006. I was thrilled that now I didn't have to go to the Derms office 3x a week, and I can do it at the comfort of my home, on my times. We built a cabinet around it with some molding to store … More it, so it appears like furniture. We stained the pine wood, put brass handles on the doors and two small magnets to hold the doors closed. We did this also so it stays protected from potential cat rages when running! LOL When I use it, I use long black socks to cover my arms (where I do not have P) and a wash cloth over my face (over my goggles) for added protection. Thank you Solarc Systems for your amazing and well-built unit! 17 years going strong!

    I started photo therapy at the closest clinic which is one hour away. It was helping but the travel and time costs were too much. I purchased a Series 100 from SolarC and continued my therapy at home. I continue to improve every week. Nick was most helpful in finding the unit when it was improperly scanned at our local delivery depot, but more importantly helped me understand the output of the unit so I could seamlessly continue therapy at home.

    Received my 6 light Solarc System two weeks ago on the recommendation of my dermatologist for the treatment of vitiligo. I had been receiving light therapy treatments at the clinic but that was a 45 minute drive each way. After noticing an improvement at the clinic I decided to purchase my own in home system. The customer service I received from Solarc was outstanding, system was easy to install, easy to use. So pleased I now have the convenience of having my own system and don’t have that drive three times a week.

    Solarc Systems has been amazing to deal with. They were quick, responsive and extremely helpful. The light system was easy to set up and I’m already on the mend.

    Service is always great! We are treated as family, that has no price. Muchas gracias Nick!
  • Avatar Jd Espid ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    The product was as described and at a very reasonable cost. Nicholas was extremely helpful and accomodating. We are very pleased with the service provided and the product purchased.
    We will certainly recommend Solarc Systems to friend, family and anyone out there who may need the products they provide.

    The unit I purchased is exactly as described. It’s well built and simple to use. One of the staff reached out after I ordered to make sure I was getting the correct plug for Canadian outlets as I had mistakenly ordered one for European outlets. He was professional and friendly. Shipping was very fast. I’m very happy with this unit.

Do you know what your local UV index is?

 

UV light is an important way humans generate the Vitamin D that their body needs. If the UV index is low or natural sunlight is not available, such as during winter months in the north, your body may not be getting enough Vitamin D.

The SolRx E-Series offers the perfect solution to increase your Vitamin D levels reliably, safely and without oral supplements.

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.

C

Reduce Topicals

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.

Quick Facts

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.

Low Maintenance

Home UV light therapy units require practically no maintenance. The bulbs last 5 to 10 years or longer.

B

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.

Accurate Dosing

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.

N

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.
