    I am 24 years old and have been struggling with psoriasis for years. I tried many different creams and medications but nothing seemed to work. After getting a Solarc light system I have seen drastic improvement with my skin and can't imagine getting through a winter without it.

    I purchased 2 panels of Solarc systems early March. I have been faithfully using it for at least 4 to 6 days per week. This has changed my life without having to use prescription drugs or steroids or travelling to get this treatment. I have psoriasis all over my body...and my psoriasis is almost gone in a month and a half. I have soft skin and the scales are smooth and just look a little pink now. I will be able to wear shorts this summer unlike last summer.Thankyou Solarc this is a game changer.

    My dad and I have loved using our Solarc machines the last 6 years. For my dad it literally has changed his life. He used to have to drive with gloves on due to the sun and would never have had any sun exposed to his skin without having crazy reactions... probably due to the liver toxicity from taking prescriptions medications for many years. So he didn't go out into the sun for around 20 years. He uses his Solarc machine daily and the last few years we have traveled to Thailand twice, Mexico twice and Cuba... and each time he swam in the ocean and was able to be out in his swim shorts and in the sun and ocean without any problems. He would not have ever even dreamed of being able to do that before... so yea, your machine has literally changed his life! Thank you for making such amazing products!!! For me it has helped with depression over the long rainy Vancouver winters. Everyone in Canada should have one of these!

    My hands which were cracked, dry, thick, and peeling, sometimes bleeding when I finally saw a dermatologist, was diagnosed with psoriasis, used steroid creams which helped but not much, then I began photolight therapy at the Pasqua Hospital in Regina. I did two treatments a week for a long time. When I had done 350 treatments, working up to 10 minutes,which always helped a lot, I was plain tired of going for these treatments. I often travelled for a month in winter and other shorter trips during these years and so, when I returned had to start over at 3 or 4 minutes so my hands would not burn. The benefits of the light therapy would go up and down. Then I found the ad for Solarc and bought a five bulb unit so I could do it at home. I began doing treatment 3 then 4 then 5 minutes (I never went higher) every two days consistently, no breaks for 6 months from December to June. My hands got better and better and better and are now clear of psoriasis. If other factors are involved, … More I cannot know but a home unit with more frequent treatment definitely was part of my cure. I understand psoriasis can "just go into remission". Why it comes and why it goes, no one really knows. I really "look" cured, my hands are soft, the skin no longer thickens. Phototherapy gives a really good chance of improvement and possible clearing. I have no need to see my dermatologist and I have not even used the unit for 4 months now. I'll keep it. Any sign of return and I will use it again. (I only ever hand it and used it on my hands)

    Je suis très satisfait de mon appareil. Je suis enfin en mesure de contrôler mon psoriasis !
  • Avatar Jim Burnham ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    I purchased my SolRx 100 in April 2019 on the advice of my Dermatologist and after only three 40 second treatments the results were dramatic. I am eczema free for the summer but expect to continue maintenance treatments in the fall. I don’t anticipate using any prescription medication other than a good over the counter moisturizer. Unfortunately my insurance company Blue Cross Michigan didn’t cover the equipment but the cost was worth every penny. I only regret I didn’t know about this treatment sooner!

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.

“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.”
