It is our greatest pleasure to hear the success stories of our customers, and a great source of inspiration. This is a sample of some of the comments we have received in the last few years or so, generally in chronological order. Most of these are “cut & paste” from emails. In some cases, minor editing has been done to remove personal items and improve readability. All initials have been changed in keeping with our privacy policy. Text in [square brackets] was added by Solarc.

SolRx devices are used mostly for the treatment of psoriasis, so most of these comments are related to psoriasis. Where other skin diseases have been treated (such as vitiligo, eczema or vitamin D3), indication is given. 

The SoIarc Home Phototherapy has been a LIFE CHANGER.  Nothing has helped my Severe Psoriasis as much as these light therapies.  All MD’s want to do is give you the newest drug on the market with severe life threatening side effects in the US.  Desperate to get relief from my Psoriasis which covered 80% of my body, I tried a few.  Ended up in hospital with Pancreatitis and nearly died from prescribed drugs.  My wife searched the internet  for help.  God was with her when she found Solarc Home Photo Therapy.  Scales are lessening and skin is actually completely healed on buttocks and lower back which was severe and painful to sit or lay.  Hardly any scales in bed in morning.  Legs have more healing to do, but I know they will be healed in time.  I am so grateful to Solarc Systems.  Thank You!!!

I am happy to report that the Phototherapy lamp unit (1000 series, six foot, 10 bulb panel) has worked very well for me. After receiving the unit in late January, 2015, I proceed to use the unit every other day for a period of time (Feb-Mar). By the end of March, 2015 my condition had improved to the point that for April and May I used the unit only three times per week. May 20th was the last time I used the unit as my condition has cleared. My reason for using the unit was to clear the itchy red bumps called Grover’s Disease. It is a transient disease. In previous outbreaks I had been treated at the doctors (dermatologist) office. However, Medicare refused to cover the treatment this time. Consequently, with my doctors approval, I purchased your unit. I will be going back to the doctor tomorrow for a checkup. However, I’m happy to report that, for the present, I am clear of the problem. I has no problem with the device or the user’s manual. However, the goggles were difficult. The tab on the sides which fit over the nose were painful to the skin. I used the goggles I had received from my doctor for when I was receiving treatments there. I followed the advice in the manual and increased my exposure time gradually to a total of nine minutes. No burns or other problems. So, in summary, the device worked very well for me. You may use my feedback in your marketing.

Transient acantholytic dermatosis (Grover disease) patient

The skin issue seems to be a combination of pruritus secondary to age and medications, and angioedema secondary to one of my drugs (which I stopped). Nevertheless the phototherapy definitely helped the itch, and now I am trying to just use the sun! I shall likely use the device again in the fall, when there is less sun exposure possible.  I am a physician and I have not yet addressed this with my GP.

Your company was suggested to me by a colleague, who herself has Psoriasis, during a morning seminar. 

The areas I have treated are clearly better than those I have not (the worst itch is on my forearms which are well controlled) but I tend to be too lazy to properly treat my back (the wand is a little too small for that, although I get a larger exposure by standing further away and using a longer exposure time.

All in all, I am quite happy with it.

LD1LD2I would like to say that I am very pleased with this device. I have had no problems with this equipment at all and it works very well at keeping my skin condition in check. It has enabled me to treat my condition at home rather than making a two hour trip to the Doctor 2 to 3 times a week. I suffer from a skin condition that the 4 different Dermatologist’s I have seen are unable to determine the cause or even classify it as anything other than some sort of “Dermitits”.
I have included some pictures taken in 2010 when the problem first appeared. Early treatment included different drugs such as High doses Prednisone and Cellcept. I stopped the use of these drugs due to the dangerous side affects associated with them. My doctor then started me on the NB UVB treatment which worked very well after about 3 months.
However, as I mentioned earlier, the drive time was a killer so I stopped after about 9 months hoping the problem had been cured. Not so, the skin lesions returned although not as bad but still bad enough. I then purchased your product and began treatment as soon as it arrived I purchased this device out of my own pocket because my insurance would not cover it (Kaiser Permanente of California). But that’s is ok. It is worth every penny I paid. I followed the user manual guide lines for treatment times and after about 2 months my condition improved by 90%. It is almost non existent with only an occasional outbreak that is very slight. It takes a little longer and I have to change positions 3 or 4 times during treatment than the unit at the doctor’s office, which was a fully enclosed unit. Other than that it woks just as well. I am currently in the maintenance phase of treatment. My treatment time is; 3min 30sec front facing, 3min 30sec rear facing and 2min 40sec side facing(each side). Treatments are 2 or 3 times a week as needed. I have had no burning or discomfort. As I stated before I have had no problems with the device it works perfectly. It was easy to unpack and setup and I am very happy. You are welcome to use any portion of this feedback for your marketing materials including the enclosed pictures.

My treatments are highly successful. In all honesty, SolArc owners manual and sales rep Gary have been more helpful to me than any MD I’ve seen. I believe your home equipment is superior to the National Biological clinical equipment I’ve used at the local University Dermatology Department.

I experienced an ongoing problem with the University Dermatologists and their insistence on treating with a One Size Fits All approach. At the clinic I experienced frequent NBUVB burns and constant bullying for not being able to receive “a full therapeutic dose.” Fortunately, one of the Dermatologists is reasonable and responsive to my treatment concerns regarding CTLC-MF (Mycosis Fungoides) diagnosis. While my regular Dermatologist would like me to accept corticol-steroid and chemo drug treatments, she is supportive in treating with NBUVB only.

Update: I started Psoriasis Protocol from your manual using the Expandable M1 + 2A set up. Exposure time increased much slower than protocol suggests, finally reaching 2:05 two x per week by the end of the second month. By the end of the second month, my skin was 95% clear. While skin will occasionally react to tx with a mild warm reddening that passes within a few hours, I have experienced absolutely no skin burns from home treatment.

I maintain at 2:05 one x per week and my skin is beautifully clear and completely comfortable. I do not see oncologist, but visit my skin doc 2-3 times a year. She is quite impressed with results and recommends that I continue with present protocol.

CTCL-MF patient

I would say my condition has improved about 98%!! I write this with tears of joy! I have worn shorts this summer and a short sleeved shirt to work even!! My husband can’t stop touching my smooth back and legs! BEST THING EVER!! I am approaching my maintenance phase! I am so thrilled by this. 

My nose was getting burned slightly when I would up my time. I have since just increased my time by 5 seconds instead of 10 and this seems to have helped tremendously. I am currently at 2.35 per side, 3 days a week.

My overall experience was amazing!! The gentleman I talked to and asked questions to prior to my purchase was so patient and kind when dealing with me. He even handled my crying like a champ (tears of joy, but still!!). The system came in so quickly and has changed my life and has got me excited about summer for the first time in my life!

I find the unit is doing well for me and improving the pigment in my skin. I still have the problem of being away from home a lot which results in my having to reduce my exposure each time I return. I find its good to have the unit at my home as this allows me to take the treatment at my convenience.

Ryan, CA, USA

Vitiligo patient

I absolutely love my lights would never live without them. My skin has cleared up by 90 percent in a year. Scalp still an issue but not as bad as it was. Need to shave hair off to clear completely lol. Use every second day now, turn four times for 1:55sec. Each turn. So happy with my purchase it may have cost me with no insurance but was well worth the initial price. Thank you so much for your assistance and follow up. Theresa, ON, Canada

From 2003 to 2013, the eczema on the back of my calves was getting progressively worse. At Christmas 2012, living in Toronto, I had to wrap my legs with tensor bandages that went under my jeans before going outside. In October 2013, I began using Solarc’s 6 foot tall UVB narrowband lamps (I have 2) and that winter my skin condition was gone and remains gone! Further, I was doing research on Vitamin D and I got my vitamin D blood levels tested in April 2013 and it was the most deficient possible result: 25 nmol/l. In May 2015, after an 8 month stretch of very consistent Solarc lamp sessions, my vitamin D tested at 140 nmol/l. 140 is considered in the optimal range by many progressive health care practitioners. It represents the vitamin D levels that the remaining hunter gatherers in Africa have. Overall, I am thrilled to be free of my skin condition and to be optimizing the sunshine vitamin which I was so lacking.

I’ve been using the phototherapy for a few months now and have been pleased with the results. Initially there was about 90% clearing on my elbows and ankles which were my worst areas. This happened after about 15 to 20 treatments of 2:30 min.

The Phototherapy System has been working great, I been using it to help control my psoriasis condition. Originally my body was about 50% covered mainly on my arms, legs, rear, and back. My back and rear is now clear, still some on the elbows, and the legs still have the most coverage. Guessing I am down to about 35% coverage of psoriasis on my body, so I’m still in the clearing stage. Been using the system 3 times a week, 3 minutes on the front and back, 2 minutes on the right and left side, totaling 10 minutes each session. No skin burns or anything like that, my dermatologist continues to remind me not to overexpose to avoid future skin cancer or similar conditions. The system has been a blessing, it has been more convenient to use at home, then visiting the doctors office three times a week. My insurance at that time did not cover for it, the reason is that my location to the doctor’s office was close enough that I could use the system there. Anyhow thank you again for providing this wonderful home system at a reasonable price. To be honest with you, the system you build to help people treat their conditions is really priceless. God bless always.

I have had Great success with this unit. I have had psoriasis for 40 years and have not had this much success with topical products. I chose this device as my primary mode of treatment as I do not want to take biologics. Topical treatments were not working anymore. 

I would recommend this unit to anyone who suffers from psoriasis as a possible alternative to topical steroid treatment or biologic.

Psoriasis patient

I am happy to report that the ‘system’ is working just fine. It took several weeks before my skin cleared up. I diligently took the treatment every second day as suggested, working up to 5 minutes each side. I stopped at 5 minutes because I am an impatient person and thought that long enough. Luckily I am not severely afflicted with Psoriasis, mostly my legs are affected with the odd spot here and there on my trunk or arms. Once my skin was clear, I went on the maintenance program, and I was away on vacation for several weeks. But of course it does not take long, and a bit of stress, for lesions to reappear. So now I am getting back into a regular routine again. There have not been any problems with the equipment and the manual is very explicit. We were very impressed with the quality of the equipment and my husband had no problem installing same. I have not had any skin burns, in the beginning a bit reddish, but no adverse effects as far as I am concerned. The product is very solid and well constructed, the service was prompt and excellent.

I bought the 1740 narrowband UVB machine and have been using it in conjunction with Protopic. My main vitiligo affected areas consisted of the abdomen, armpits, neck, legs, and elbows. I found that the Solarc unit and protopic combined have been extremely effective in repigmenting almost all areas. The improvement in the armpits and elbows is much slower than the other areas. I saw the first few dots of colour appear just after two weeks of using the machine. After about 4 months of use, I was at about 50% repigmentation and after 6 months, I was at about 80-90% in all areas except the armpits and elbows which remained at about 50%. Obviously, the solarc unit has proven to be extremely effective on me and I would highly recommend it to anyone. However, I believe its effectiveness depends on which areas of your body are affected by vitiligo and how long you’ve had it, etc. For example, I believe that hands and feet are much harder to repigment. Thanks for your help and for creating a great machine.

Lucy, ON, Canada

VItiligo patient

You wouldn’t believe the remarkable change in my feet and hands. The treatments took about 3-4 weeks before I was able to see a difference, but now I can go barefoot (even outside) and I can wear sandals again. I can also shake people’s hands and receive change from clerks without feeling embarrassed about how my hands looked. I haven’t had any problems with the equipment at all. As a matter of fact, it sits under my computer desk and when I’m working on my computer, I do my treatment and I’m done. No skin burns or adverse effect, only tan feet and hands! It’s a wonderful product and the service that you gave us Steve, was great. We were very successful with our insurance claim. They paid 80% of the charge and we received our check within 7-10 business days after paying Solarc. Our insurance company is Aetna. It is an unbelievable product and I would recommend it to anyone who was having the problems that I was having.

We now own two of your eight bulb therapy lights. My daughter and I are still in the clearing stages but we are both really happy with the results we are getting. I use mine just about every day for six minutes a side. Your lights are a great product so much so that when my daughter moved out and took hers with her I had to buy another one.

Dean, BC, Canada

I have been using the System, almost exclusively to treat the palms of my hands. The treatment has been going well; my skin condition has been as good as it was when I was under a physician’s care. No problems with the equipment or User’s Manual. I have not had any burns or other adverse effects. I was successful with my insurance claim. Thank you for your product.

The light works fine. I found that the therapy time was significantly longer with the narrow band but far less burning to the rest of my skin. I am completely satisfied.

Sandy, AB, Canada

Psoriasis patient

Just wanted to give you an update. My psoriasis is almost completely cleared (I’m the only one that can see it really). I’m so excited. It’s been 2 ½ years since I last saw my skin looking so good. Such a relief and a boost to my self confidence. Up until 3 weeks ago I thought I’d be wearing long sleeves and pants all summer long – not anymore! So as you’ve probably already predicted I’d like to know my options for buying the machine I have or purchasing a new or used one?

Tracy, ON, Canada

Between medicine and light treatments, it made a wonderful difference. Now with summer here, I dress down as much as possible and use sunlight.

Claire, MT, USA

Psoriasis patient

I am doing well and the treatments are working. I have had Vitiligo for about twenty years. It has always responded well to phototherapy treatments, but then returned when the treatments stopped. With my home unit, I believe it is reasonable to expect complete re-pigmentation (which I have attained before). After that, I am hoping to use my SolRx System for maintenance purposes. I am completely satisfied with my unit. My insurance company gave me a quick pre-authorization. This was based upon a letter from my physician indicating the likelihood of me needing treatments for some time to come. In my own letter, I pointed out the cost savings to them. It is far less expensive to make this one-time purchase than to pay for on-going clinic treatments.

Thank you for your follow up. Things are progressing slowly but surely. My type of psorasis tends to take a long time to clear. I look forward to when it does. At that time I believe my home therapy unit will be further appreciated as it will allow me to curb future flare ups before they become so hard to get rid of.

The light works fine. I found that the therapy time was significantly longer with the narrow band but far less burning to the rest of my skin. I am completely satisfied.

Sandy, AB, Canada

Psoriasis patient

Just wanted to give you an update. My psoriasis is almost completely cleared (I’m the only one that can see it really). I’m so excited. It’s been 2 ½ years since I last saw my skin looking so good. Such a relief and a boost to my self confidence. Up until 3 weeks ago I thought I’d be wearing long sleeves and pants all summer long – not anymore! So as you’ve probably already predicted I’d like to know my options for buying the machine I have or purchasing a new or used one?

Tracy, ON, Canada

Between medicine and light treatments, it made a wonderful difference. Now with summer here, I dress down as much as possible and use sunlight.

Claire, MT, USA

I am doing well and the treatments are working. I have had Vitiligo for about twenty years. It has always responded well to phototherapy treatments, but then returned when the treatments stopped. With my home unit, I believe it is reasonable to expect complete re-pigmentation (which I have attained before). After that, I am hoping to use my SolRx System for maintenance purposes. I am completely satisfied with my unit. My insurance company gave me a quick pre-authorization. This was based upon a letter from my physician indicating the likelihood of me needing treatments for some time to come. In my own letter, I pointed out the cost savings to them. It is far less expensive to make this one-time purchase than to pay for on-going clinic treatments.

I am really pleased with the lamp. I did not have any problems in installing it and in using it. My condition improved significantly. My psoriasis decreased 80% which is just great. I’m really pleased with the service I received from you.

Naomi, BC, Canada

Psoriasis patient

We had no problems setting up the unit and the usage instructions were very clear. I was beginning to see some improvement after about a month’s usage. It is typical for me to respond fairly slowly as I have had a VERY long history with UVB therapy (approx 30 years off and on). I was on a three week vacation and am now back at square one in terms of my condition. It is a godsend being able to have the unit at home. Although I currently reside in an area where a therapy unit in a hospital setting is not available, I am a former resident of Toronto and used to lose four to six hours in transit to and from therapy every week, not to mention the time spent lounging in the waiting room if things had fallen behind. This is a much more cost effective solution even with the large out of pocket outlay. I would highly recommend this as a solution to anyone with a history of this being the only effective method of treatment over a long period of time. Thank you for providing the product. The only suggestion that I would make, and it may of course run contrary to your business plan and profit margin, but offering used and reconditioned units could make this a viable solution to those who might not be able to afford a new unit without medical coverage.

My skin was almost completely clear, but my psoriasis has started to come back in the last week or two… I was only doing maintenance treatments. I’ve talked to the nurses where I was being treated and was told to restart daily treatments for a few weeks. Should clear by then. No problems yet with the manual or equipment.

Oliver, IL, USA

Psoriasis patient

Yes my skin improved greatly. Besides a few stubborn, spots my skin is clear. Also, I have made some lifestyle changes which together with light therapy worked well. No problem with either equipment or manual.

Actually, I am using the phototherapy unit to treat my patients here on Guam. I am using it for psoriasis, vitiligo, and severe eczema. It is working great and has made a tremendous difference to the lives of quite a few people. There have been no side effects except for mild redness, ever. Only one person failed to improve significantly with the treatment (psoriasis person). It has been most rewarding to treat these folks, particularly the children, with no side effect and such great results. I am very happy with your unit. I had originally wished for a full box, but the folks come in do one side, turn around and do the other, and out they go. The extra few minutes does not make a difference in my practice.

Just a short note to say that I received a [Canadian] federal tax credit for the unit that I purchased from you. [The amount refunded] depends on a persons income … I saved $ 887.44 which worked out to about 32.5% of 2728.50.

I ordered the system to help me with Vitamin D absorption issues following gastric bypass surgery. I have actually been thinking about your company a lot. I have had a miraculous recovery from bones microfracturing. My family doctor went on this journey with me. He was my sounding board as we tried to figure out the right amount of exposure. In the initial phase, we increased exposure time in 10 second increments and eventually reached 4 minutes or so on the front and then 4 more on the back. Total exposure. I have to tell you that I was not very well initially and did not keep accurate daily records. I had used a walker 24/7 starting in December 2003. I walked without the walker in June 2004. I had been to many specialists, who had left me with no hope. The news for me and my family was so big. I know there must be other gastric bypass patients that might be dealing with this issue. Unfortunately, they are probably disabled and behind closed doors in their homes, unable to live a “walking” life. The only thing I changed was the lights. The lights were the healing.

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with the UVB panel. It’s only been 3 weeks since I have began using it and I am already seeing a significant difference. I no longer have to feel embarrassed about my skin and wear long sleeved shirts in this sweltering heat. This machine is really a blessing for patients like me who cannot try any sort of other treatment because they are trying to conceive. However, despite that, I personally believe that light treatment is the safest, most effective, and most convenient treatment for psoriasis, regardless of the patient profile. I only wish that I had purchased the machine earlier! Thanks again.

There are no problems with the equipment or manual that I am aware of… everything appears to be in order and functioning properly and my psoriasis is being managed very gradually as I am keeping exposure to a minimum. After regular treatments of 5 times per week, I am still only at 1 and a half minutes per side (front and back with face turned away for remaining two sides).

It is the most effective treatment I have used yet (15+ years) for my mild case that normally affects about 2-5% of my skin. Surprisingly, the NUVB seems to be more effective that suntanning for me. I’m now using it two times per week in maintenance mode, along with some occasional steroid cream, and remain almost completely clear. I think it is a great product and the web and e-mail support has been great. I noted that in the latest budget there is a provision for phototherapy devices to be claimed as a deduction. The equipment is a little expensive, but I realize that it is a specialty item and not mass produced. I would have been willing to pay even $5K+ out-of-pocket for a long-term effective treatment such as this. Even a mild case of P has been a royal pain over the years dealing with the soreness and psychological impacts.

S.G.

Psoriasis patient

can’t even begin to express to you how this device has changed my life. Within a few days of treatment I saw a difference. Now, most of my spots have been reduced to just dry or pink patches with little to no flaking. I can wear short sleeved shirts without a second thought for the 1st time in nearly 10 years. My psoriasis had been getting progressively worse (new patches and the old one’s were always growing), but with the UVBNB, many are completely gone with no sign of them returning and others, close to my feet are a bit resistant. Overall, I feel I have my life back, like the sentence of home confinement has been lifted. I feel liberated! Now I pretty much just do maintenance treatments maybe once a week. My insurance company is United Health Care; and after much ado, and many calls, they finally paid 90% of the cost. Phenominal! I was very lucky and very persistant. So, I guess you could say I’m SUPER happy with your product. If I believed in miracles I would have to say this is one. I wish this was the only line of treatment given to psoradics, I mean for 10 years I’ve used steriods that did nothing but aggravate the situation, and within days…DAYS!!! I saw a significant difference. Thanks for checking in, I’ve been looking forward to telling you all Thank you! H.C.

Your lightbox has been wonderful. I only just started using it on a regular basis religiously and have seen a wonderful start to an improvement. My elbows are looking great. It just looks like I have dry skin now, although the “stains” are still there. I am hoping they will go away soon. My legs are taking longer to see improvements, however I do see a difference. Keep in mind I have only been using it regularly for a month now. I believe in another month I should see a major difference. I have a spot on the back of my hand that isn’t improving which is odd because prior visits to my Doctor’s Light Box cleared it up within a week. The unit is wonderful so far. No problems yet. My Husband also built a beautiful Oak box for it with doors on it. So. So far so good. But lots of treatments still ahead for me. I think in a month or two I will have more updates and I am sure they will be all positive! Thank you for a wonderful Light Box. I hope to continue my positive future with Solarc Systems and my light box. B.C.

Psoriasis patient

Thank you for your follow-up. I am very happy with the Solarc-System Home Phototherapy System. My elbows take to it well and are clearing up, the rest of my body is taking longer, however that is due to the fact that I have been away and not used the system the way I should. I plan to get on a regular set schedule in the next week or so now that I am back home. I would say a better, more accurate update would be beneficial in about six weeks. Where I will have more info to tell you and your company regarding any progress. The User Manual was a breeze and easy to navigate. Setup took only fifteen minutes and my Husband built a wonderful dark-walnut Pine cabinet for the until so it looks like a piece of furniture. (which he is proud to say he built!) Other than that, no technical issues so far to report. Just a wonderful, easy unit that I am proud to own. Warm Regards, B.D.

Psoriasis patient

I am almost completely cleared. I only have maybe two or three little pea sized lesions. I have had absolutely no problems with the light box. It has truly made a world of difference. I don’t have to worry about the stresses of going to the Dermatologist for treatment. I can do them in the comfort of my own home. Unfortunately government insurance does not cover the purchases of light boxes, at least not mine. Treatment is available at the hospital where I do my follow ups and because of that my doctor specifically said that the government will not pay for it. It states that on the prescription. Keep doing what you are doing. This was one of the smoothest purchases I have ever done. I was really impressed with your service. I was a little nervous at first; making such a large purchase on line. But you were courteous and the delivery was prompt. I will definitely recommend your company to anyone that that I know that needs therapy

I have been quite successful with the lights. Within a month I saw dramatic results, quite amazing actually! There is some stubborn spots that are staying around on my lower legs and one knee but I am not complaining. I found the lights super easy to use, sure is nice to have a home unit that I can use at my convenience. I would take a bath, put on sun screen on my face, ears, neck, chest and breast and then start the lights. I am doing it about two or three times a week still so that new won’t come back, actually I did get a new spot so figured I should keep up with the lights. I put moisterizer on after every bath, still use some topical on those stubborn spots. Also had hyperpigmentation that is slowly fading, that takes a good three months or more. My skin is super smooth quite incredible actually. I had never done light therapy because of where I lived so was taking a bit of a chance with just going ahead and buying it and thank goodness it worked for me. I am thrilled to know that I have these lights to use for the rest of my life. My insurance company is Manulife. I talked to someone directly and found out exactly what they would require, I mailed out the forms to them on a Monday and by the following Thursday the entire amount was deposited into my account! I was blown away I must say. I really didn’t rely on getting anything back because you hear of so many problems so needless to say I am quite thankful for my work’s insurance company. Your help on the phone was fabulous, so very, very helpful. I also got so much information from the NPF website. They have a place where people can ask questions, get support, etc so that was quite helpful. Your product is mentioned quite often when light therapy is talked about. Great hearing from you J.T.

The treatments worked as I hoped and dreamed they would. Three months of every-other-day treatments, increasing by 10 seconds per treatment up to 3 minutes and then holding at that…. and the psoriasis was 98% gone…..and remained that way for about 4 months. (I’m outdoors a lot in the summer). Restarted treatments October 1, and already the psoriasis has stopped progressing. At present am treating fronts of shins, elbows, and palms and backs of my hands. I hope for cure, plan on repeated remissions. I no longer have to plan my life around painful, cracked and bleeding hands. Thank you. The machine is, so far, working to perfection. The design is practical, the safety features appreciated, the construction solid. The users manual is clear, concise, and literate. Again, thank you. Thank you so much for the follow-up. Do wish all my business dealings could be so satisfactory and so pleasant.

Jim’s skin condition has improved dramatically since starting his treatments. It is hard to know whether it is a combination of the treatments along with the natural sunlight but his skin is now about 90% improved over when he started his treatments. I believe the real test of the equipment will be in the winter months when Jim isn’t exposed to as much natural sunlight. Everything is fine with the operation of the system. The only challenge will be for him to get enough treatments in the winter months while he is working away from home and the system is not portable. I didn’t submit a claim to our insurance company as they indicated they would not cover the cost of the equipment. The great news was the skin condition improved very quickly, within 2 weeks there was a noticable difference, within 4 weeks he was 90% improved. Thanks for checking in. M.G.

I am very happy with the equipment and manual as is. I started treatments on receipt of the equipment and continued for two months until going on vacation and have since been taking natural light, thanks to our great summer. I see in your manual you suggest 1 min.10 sec. to start for psoriasis, however, since I had treatments previously at Brampton Hospital and burned at 10 sec. initially, I started at 10 sec. with this equipment and eventually reached 4 min. front, 4 min. back and 2 min. each side. It certainly did improve my over-all condition significantly, but my ankles (which are a problem area) did not quite clear. My dermatologist suggested starting treatments again as soon as I see any outbreaks, so I imagine I will be starting again in about a month’s time. It is a real blessing having this equipment at home and so handy, instead of having to travel 2-1/2 hours to Brampton three days per week and usually during the winter. Unfortunately, we do not have insurance coverage, but will claim it as Medical Expenses when filing our Income Tax Returns. Many thanks to you and Bruce for your time spent with us on the phone and in person, and all the good advice received. We really appreciate it. C.N.

Everything is going well with the light. I am slowing regaining some pigmentation in my skin but it’s very slow. I use it every other day.Hopefully by next summer all of the pigmentation will be back.

The treatments worked as I hoped and dreamed they would. Three months of every-other-day treatments, increasing by 10 seconds per treatment up to 3 minutes and then holding at that…. and the psoriasis was 98% gone…..and remained that way for about 4 months. (I’m outdoors a lot in the summer). Restarted treatments October 1, and already the psoriasis has stopped progressing. At present am treating fronts of shins, elbows, and palms and backs of my hands. I hope for cure, plan on repeated remissions. I no longer have to plan my life around painful, cracked and bleeding hands. Thank you. The machine is, so far, working to perfection. The design is practical, the safety features appreciated, the construction solid. The users manual is clear, concise, and literate. Again, thank you. Thank you so much for the follow-up. Do wish all my business dealings could be so satisfactory and so pleasant.

i am extremely happy with the results. my skin is pretty much clear except a few small areas that i am tackling. as a result i have been able to confidently enjoy this wonderfully hot summer we have had. i am now on more of a maintanence shedule 2 – 3 times a week for a few minutes. the system is easy peasy, no problems and very convenient to have in my home. sunlife is my insurance. they rejected the first go around. i have not had a chance to reapply. stephen, thanks very much for dealing with my questions back in april, as you know it is a big purchase. the fact that it works is a great comfort, making it all worthwhile. i don’t take clear skin for granted anymore. thanx and sincerely

The light system has done wonders for my skin, and the manual was clear to read and use. I would like to say thanks again to Stephen Bagnell for working with me and being so nice and helpful. The system was covered by my insurance co. after I payed the bill and sent them the information. Unitedhealthcare. Thanks again form a happy camper!! N.T.

Psoriasis patient

Yes the unit is definitely working well for me!! I haven’t been using it so much in the warmer weather since I’m out in my pool every day, but it worked awesome up until that point! Thanks for the follow-up, and thanks so much for building such an awesome product!!! K.T.

Psoriasis patient

My treatments worked well. I had a flare up prior to receiving my machine and it took 6 to 8 weeks to clear (same lapse of time as at the hospital). My skin condition has improved significantly and my quality of life has improved. Since I have my Solarc/SolRx Phototherapy System, I have control on what works for me. (eg: it it rains for a week and I notice that my psoriasis starts to appear or feel it, I will use my machine when I cannot be exposed to the sun. By doing this, it prevents my spots to worsen or new spots(I don’t have too many). I will find out during the Winter months how it will really work for me. There is no problem with the equipment nor the user’s manual. I was surprised on how it is easy to set up and use. It is no more complicated than plugging a microwave or set a timer. There is even a safety feature (key). The service is great. I made the request for payment for the equipment to Medavie Blue Cross in the past (a few years back) and it has been denied. I prepared a file for the Benefit Review Committee (Blue Cross) and to my surprise they paid 80% of the costs. Your website was very helpful. I prepared a lenghty letter (file) using your examples. It is true that I started treatments in January 2004 and I was still going to the hospital (288 KM round trip) in March of 2005. I also printed photos from the internet showing the insurance company to what level I was when I started my treatments. My dermatologist and technicien were very suprised they paid because this company has been the only one they knew who were not assisting. Hoping this is helpful.

I have seen significant improvement since purchasing my unit and would highly recommend it to anyone with simliar type skin problems. I was very fortunate as my insurance carrier (Manulife) covered the cost of my unit. The service from your company was excellent and I have not had any problems with the unit. With much thanks, E.N.

I am very happy with the phototherapy unit. I have almost complete clearing, and I stopped taking treatments until it recurs. My insurance, Healthnet, didn’t pay for it, which I knew when I bought it. The convenience of not having an hour’s round trip drive to the Doctor’s office somewhat makes up for having to pay for it myself.

Hey Steve, I never got your email until now, I am so sorry for not responding, and I have thought about calling you. Yes, of course we received the booth and in perfect shape, thank you so much. Pete has been using it and is doing very well, it is working so nicely. I just can’t thank you enough for all your help and promptness. You have been awesome. I hope all is well, and hope Canada is great and take care and email whenever. Your California friend and customer. S.T.

Phototheraphy is working out well, my skin condition has improved drastically, yes the insurance company Manual Life payed me the cost of the unit, it is working well and I am pleased with the results.

Stephen, you are professionals at what you do and sell great job and many thanks,

Hi Stephen, I have been pleased with the system. The skin condition has improved somewaht and I am continuing the treatments as recommended by my physician. The convenience of treating myself, on my own schedule is wonderful. The system has worked well with no difficulties understanding its operation. K.E.

Psoriasis patient

Hi Steve. I’ve been using my phototherapy machine since January and am really pleased with it. My skin was almost completely cleared up by the start of April. I can hardly wait to wear skirts and short sleeve tops this summer. Last summer was spent wearing pants and long sleeve blouses, not very comfortable on hot August days. I can honestly say, with the improvement in my skin I’m back to my happy self again. The psoriasis really got my spirits down when nothing I was trying (before my light machine) made any improvement in my condition. My dermatologist was quite impressed. There have been no problems with the machine or the manual.

Of course to no surprise to you this machine has been awesome. I received my machine in December and by February I am 95% clear, I have cut back on my treatments considerably and only do a minimal treatment to keep any new flare ups under control. I did not pursue reimbursement from my insurance company, the investment to me is well worth the money spent for something I will need for the rest of my life, a small price to pay for self confidence and wearing shorts again. Thank you for a wonderful product I recommend this to anyone that suffers with psorasis. Amazing!!!

I’M DOING FINE AND THANK YOU FOR ASKING. MY PSORIASIS HAS CLEARED WITH ONLY FEW SPOTS LEFT. IT’S REALLY HELPED ME A LOT AND IS SO CONVENIENT. I STOPPED USING IT FOR NOW BECAUSE OF THE SPRING WEATHER, I SPEND MORE TIME OUT IN THE SUN. I PLAN TO USE IT AGAIN WHEN WINTER COMES. I MOUNTED THE LIGHT ON A CORNER WALL IN MY BASEMENT AND AM COVERING IT WITH A CLOTH WHEN I’M NOT USING IT TO PROTECT THE BULBS. I HAVE NO OTHER SUGGESTIONS TO IMPROVE IT, IT REALLY WORKS WELL FOR ME. THE USERS MANUAL IS A GREAT HELP, I READ IT AND WAS EASY TO FOLLOW. C.H.

Psoriasis patient

I think I purchased my unit from you around 1993. It’s a 6-ft/6-bulb UVB unit. Amazingly, not one bulb has burnt out. I use it mostly during the winter, whenever I get a bad flare-up. I start at around 30 sec and work my way up to about 3 minutes. The highest I think I’ve got it up to was 5 minutes per side, but that was a long time ago. I use it around 1 month at a time. That usually helps although never truly clears up my skin. I don’t want to over-do it because I’m concerned about long-term side effects like skin cancer. Thus, I only use it when I really need it. I’m very satisfied with the UVB unit. Thanks S.N.

Psoriasis patient

it’s working very nicely. I use it 3 or 4 times a week. I’m about 95 % clear.

I had great success with your unit and am thoroughly grateful. After 6 weeks with 18 treatments my psoriasis was completely gone. I was covered over my whole body. I am now doing a treatment once a week under advice of my dermatologist. I’ve had 34 treatments to date. I waited till I was cleared up before requesting reimbursement from my Insurance company Blue Cross Blue Shield. I felt that by waiting with proven results it would increase my chances. I wrote an full page letter explaining why I thought I should be reimbursed and my doctor also sent an excellent letter. They covered 90% of the cost. S.G.

It’s great! It’s been working! I have a few trouble spots on my elbows and knees, but every where else has either cleard up or is clearing up. I figure 2x a week works best for me, sometimes 1x week depending how things are looking. I wish my dr. would have told me about this treatment years ago. It would have saved a lot of money in dr. appts, tanning and medication. It’s very easy to use! Thank you for all of your help! D.A.

My psoriasis problem still persists although it has improved somewhat. I think that my dosage is too low especially for my persistent and long standing plaques. On the iother hand I do not want to get burnt. I am dosing 6 minutes on my back and 4 minutes on the front. The secret is continuous use and gradual improvement over a few months. K.M.

M.I.

Psoriasis patient

Thanks for the note, and thanks again for your help in making the purchase. No problems with the equipment or the manual. The machine has been a cinch to install, and has worked flawlessly since day one. The treatment has been going well. I was already doing UV treatments at the Dermatology Centre, so the toughest part has been trying to judge the dosage to maintain the same level as the circular booth that I was used to. For the first month or so, I was just doing my front and back, 2 to 3 times a week. I noticed that my sides were worsening, so I switched to all four sides, but not as long on the sides. I usually go 2 or 3 treatments at a certain time, and then increase by 10 seconds once the skin is used to it. Of course, one of the greatest benefits is the time saved not having to travel out of my way 2-3 times a week to go to the derm centre. This, to me, is invaluable. S.L.

Psoriasis patient

Steve, Yes, the lamp is helping very much. I was on methotrexate for years and had to get off. I am quite satisfied with the results and I am sure that with time it will prove invaluable. The insurance coverage I have is with Manulife Ins. and they were very good with coverage (100%), but it took a better covering letter from Dr. Robert Jackson. The one improvement I think would be beneficial is better eye goggles. I’ve had to repair them a couple of times, the strap isn’t that durable. I am more than satisfied with the results.

Hi, Stephen. Thanks for your interest. I’m doing well – equipment is working great and giving me great results (psoriasis & vitiligo). Instructions were clear & I installed unit with no trouble at all. One of my keys didn’t work and you were kind enough to send me another one, which I really appreciated. Thanks again for your support and interest. (can’t think of any improvements Solarc needs to make!) E.G.

Psoriasis patient

Just a note to let you know I have had great success with my phototherapy sessions. My skin is about 90% clear….just a couple of small patches remain. They are improving daily and I expect to be free from psoriasis soon. (after 20 years) The equipment is trouble free and the literature was easy to follow and understand. I am a satisfied customer

Dear Bruce, I thank you for your consideration. I just stopped the treatement now. I did it every 2nd day for 10 minutes each side. My skin is cleared completely, except in my ears. Now I will take the treatement once a week for the next month. Everything is working perfectly well. I never ask for insurance. I do not know if Medicare pays. The insurance I have pays 20% from Medicare . D.W.

I am very pleased with the results of having my own UVB unit in the comfort of my own home. Since the only place on my body I did not have psoriasis was the palms of my handa, soles of my feet and my face I am very impressed with the results. Although I do have a couple of trouble spots yet my dermatoligist believes that within 6 months to a year I will have no noticable areas. My time is presently 3 minutes and have been there for about a month. My dermatoligist says that if am exposed to a lot of sunlight on my affected areas I should miss the treatment because of possible overexposure. It has made my life so much easier than driving 40 minutes one way to the hospital, getting undressed for treatment, dressing , driving home, undressing, applying oitments, dressing for work and then missing 1 hour of work 3 to 5 times a week. I do not have any insurance coverage but will use the cost as a tax deduction for medical expenses. Over time the lost wages alone not even considering the wear and tear on my vehicle let alone myself will pay for the unit. L.I.

Doing very well thank you. Much improved and easy to use and very safe. Insurance covered 90% so that helped me financially. No suggestions to be made at the moment, product is very good and I am quite happy. Thank you very much.

My “Sun Machine” (as I call it) has cleared up my psoriasis like magic. My hands have been unsightly for twenty years…after six weeks with Solarc, the white patches are almost completely invisible….my nails seem to be improving too. Great results on the outside of my calves also…no more scratching till they bleed. I’m using a maintenance schedule of two to three 5 minute exposures per week. N.C.

Steve, Thanks for caring, and trying to help me, thats really nice of you. I’ll keep the doctors list with me for reference, and try to go down there… it’s also nice to know theres people like you in this world….Thanks again

Dear Bruce, I thank you for your consideration. I just stopped the treatement now. I did it every 2nd day for 10 minutes each side. My skin is cleared completely, except in my ears. Now I will take the treatement once a week for the next month. Everything is working perfectly well. I never ask for insurance. I do not know if Medicare pays. The insurance I have pays 20% from Medicare . D.W.

the phototherapy equipment has worked very well and really cleared up the areas that the light reaches. i still have areas where the light does not reach ex. inside ears, around eyes (because of goggles) on my forehead because my hair line covers it, in my groin area. other than those few spots im very happy with the photo system there has been no problems with the equipment or the manual. my insurance Blue Cross (hmo blue) paid upto $1500. for the machine, so overall im very satisfied with the machine. THANKS S.L.

Dear Mr. Bagnell, Received delivery of equipment model 1740UVB. I am pleased with the prompt service and ease of installing the light. Seems like a real quality device and I look forward to the convenience of home photo-therapy and will recommend your company to others.

I am 23 and have had psoriasis for 12 years. Over the past 5 years it has become very severe and I had started wearing long clothing to conceal it. I had done UVB treatments at the hospital for about 7 weeks and then I was discharged because my skin had cleared. These treatments were time consuming and the scheduling was difficult. Over the next 2-3 years my psoriasis worsened to the worst it had ever been. I had psoriasis everywhere-from head to toe. Approximately one third of my skin was affected. I was very excited when I found out that it was possible to obtain a home lamp for treating my psoriasis. First, I had to get a doctor on my side. I was able to find a doctor that would help me with Solarc’s assistance. When I spoke to my doctor, he was excited to prescribe a home unit to see the results for himself. I have now been using my SOLARC 1760 UVB-NB lamp for 16 weeks. It takes me about 6 minutes a day and the results have been fantastic. After just 4 weeks of treatment, my first spot had vanished. After 6 weeks of daily treatments, about half of my spots were starting to show significant improvement. At the start of week 13 all of the spots were flattening and I knew it wouldn’t be much longer. At week sixteen, all of the spots on my body are gone and I am going to be starting maintenance treatments to prevent a relapse. I also must include that Bruce is an excellent man to work with. His personal touch really helps when dealing with such a personal issue, like psoriasis. I would recommend the product to anyone that I thought it could help. Thank you for proving world-class service. S.T.

I couldn’t be happier with the results I’ve had with the light machine. I fastened it to the wall in the bedroom and started treatments the day it arrived and have had no problems with the machine. Other than the treatments taking twice as long as in the doctor’s office because they have a machine that surrounds your whole body the results are the same. As in the doctor’s office I started seeing a big improvement after about fifteen treatments and by the time I completed thirty treatments my skin had pretty much cleared up. I discontinued the treatments after the thirty and about three weeks later the psoriasis started coming back so I resumed treatments and within two weeks it had pretty much cleared up again. What a pleasure it is to have the light machine right in my own home, no more having to get pre approval from the insurance company for treatments and best of all as soon as the psoriasis starts coming back I can resume treatments immediately and keep it under control. After a couple letters to my insurance company from my doctor, they felt it was medically necessary and reimbursed me 80%.

Thanks for your email, it’s great to know that you follow up on your equipment. I have had great success with my machine – my skin has honestly never been better – I am almost clear – which has not happened in my life before – 34 years and counting – but I do think that with the help of my narrow band unit I will be clear this summer. I have been being followed by my dermatologist – and feel good about how often I check in with her – approximately every 3 months now. I was also impressed by the speed of your response to my order and the delivery of the unit – I thought I would be in for a several week wait and was pleasantly surprised by how fast you responded! Keep up the good work -if you have any other questions please feel free to email me.

The unit has performed flawlessly. It cleared up my psoriasis to a point that I did not know that I had it. I recently have restarted treatments as winter time my skin gets its worst, but I had a two month break. This is the best option I have had for treatment of my psoriasis so far. Thank you F.K.

The machine is a dream come true! I have my skin under control (about 95%) for the first time in 5 years! With my own machine, I get to use it every other day, which seemed to do the trick. I have had no problems with the machine, the manual, or service. Your service was outstanding. We received the equipment within 3 days of our order with you. I wish I would have had this equipment many years ago. It would have saved me years of suffering, wasted time, and doctor’s visits. I wish that the doctor’s office would have made your services known to me earlier. Thank you so much!! S.C.

The machine is great, and my skin has almost cleared. I am at 40 seconds front, 40 seconds back, then 22 seconds each side. At first I only treated my front and back in hopes that reflective UVB would treat my sides, but with shadows from my arms, etc. that was not the case. The front and back had almost completely cleared before I started assign sides at 2 sec. and increasing from there. Sides are almost all cleared now. Only trouble spots are below the knees – I have several tooney sized spots that are being stubborn (probably due to the light intensity decrease near the end of the tube). I will probably wait until my sides are clear, then start using a stool to treat my calf areas. The manual was great, seemed complete. I had already done some treatments at the local hospital about 3 years ago, so it was familiar to me. The only suggestion on the manual would be to elaborate a bit in the area of skew or side treatment – how to introduce it, e.g. timing, and how to start treatment for “stubborn” areas. e.g. in my case, how to start adding time to lower legs (wear shorts, etc. and use stool – introduction times, increase times, etc.) All in all, I am 110% satisfied and am glad to be finally almost psoriasis free! My doctor will probably have a heart attack when he sees me next! Thanks again, and if you have any other questions, or want more info on my experience, please let me know.

Thanks for the follow up, I am extremely pleased with the unit for several reasons: 1. Ease of Use, the unit was extremely well shipped and very user friendly to set up. The controls are very simple and easy to manage. 2. Home Control, although I coordinate my treatment with my Dermatologist the unit is not bound by some arbitrary control that limits my treatments without updating or getting a code from the Dermatologist (this was a key deciding factor in my purchase) 3. The ability to plug into a standard 120 outlet. The system works just fine and I have not experienced any problems with powering the unit using a normal household plug (this was also a key deciding factor in my purchase) 4. Cost. Hands down the unit looks as solid and reliable and even more so than some of the other units that were a lot more expensive. The Treatment: I have always responded extremely well to PUVA, my psoriasis condition is severe and extremely chronic. PUVA, however would clear my skin 100% in a matter of weeks. The UVB NB is not as successful as PUVA, but it is a dramatic improvement over any other treatment. At least 75% clear, I must continually use the instrument but the trade off of convenience and ease of use is worth changing from PUVA to UVB-NB. Especially in my case as I live outside a major area and do not have ready access to a Dermatologist who specializes in Psoriasis Light Therapy. I experience minor side effects like extreme itching and my skin turns a patchy lobster red, but again, It is a minor inconvenience compared to any other available treatment. I am still experimenting with treatment methodologies to discover what will work best for me. Suggestions: God bless you man! Seriously takes a psoriasis survivor to offer a quality product to others, I really appreciate your entrepreneurship and would certainly be willing to recommend you to anyone who was researching their purchase. Purchase of the Solarc UVB NB machine has allowed me to lead a normal life, far from a metro area or Psoriasis Treatment Facility. I coordinate with my dermatologist regularly for check-ups and skin exams but all-in-all, I gain one entire work day (8 hours) a week in commute time by not having to drive to a treatment facility. If there is anything I can do to support your business please don’t hesitate to let me know Very Sincerely, T.B.

Psoriasis patient

The treatments have been very successful. For the first time in 24 years, I am not suffering through the winter. I saw my dermatologist, and requested a prescription for a topical ointment so that I can use both the light therapy and the ointment together in the treatment of my eczema. I use different strengths of sunblock lotion for areas that require little or no exposure to the UVB. I have learned how to regulate the time spent before the lights; i.e., sometimes I just need to maintain healthy skin, at others I need to increase exposure due to flare-ups. And if I should go awhile without light treatment, I need to start the routine all over again; i.e., begin with a short period of exposure time, and gradually build it up again. My doctor was very pleased with the results, as well as with my personal plan for treatment. As an added bonus, I find that the lights are keeping me acne-free. (Even at xx years old, I tend to break out once in a while … when the time comes, I will probably be the only senior citizen requesting a wrinkle cream with acne control!) I do find, however, that my skin dries quite easily as a result of the lights and cold weather. Unfortunately, the lights cannot replace wintertime’s lack of humidity! Therefore, I maintain a regular moisturizing routine, including Doak Oil baths, which help. This was an expensive investment for us. However, finally enjoying eczema-free skin makes it worthwhile. I am very pleased with the results, and only regret that I did learn of phototherapy sooner. Thank you for your interest.

I am very pleased with the Solarc equipment. The manual is clear. I have had no problems with the machine whatsoever. I can’t express enough how this machine has helped fade my psoriasis patches. Almost non-existent. My self-esteem has been restored. (that’s saying a lot) Even my daughter says “I have a new mommy.” Life is good. The insurance company was Manulife. They covered me 100% They accepted my claim immediately. I had no problems with coverage from them at all. I was worried that I would have to continuously send letters but that was not the case. The letter guideline example your web site provided was very helpful. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I was excited to receive my machine that I wanted to start my treatments right away. The machine is amazing! Thanks so much. I’m so glad I saw your ad in a medical magazine in my doctor’s office. You need to advertise more. Let people know that this machine is available for home use. I’ll keep you posted. Sincerely,

Bruce and Stephan, Regarding the purchase of my phototherapy unit, I must say I am overwhelmed by the results, extremely happy with the product, and thankful for the outstanding, kind, and considerate service. When I first looked into purchasing a unit, the information on the web site and the package you sent to me had more than enough information for me to make the right decision. The machine arrived quickly with absolutely no missing parts, information, or damage to the unit. It was very easy to set up and I started treatments the same day that it arrived. Within a month my psoriasis was 90% clear. The only evidence was a little bit of discoloration around the once affected areas. I cannot think of anything you need to do to improve your product or your service. I happened to stumble across your web site by accident, otherwise I probably never would have pursued the possibility of an in home phototherapy unit, so maybe some different areas of marketing and advertisement need to be explored. Thanks guys for everything. Keep in touch. D.H.

For about 6-7 years I have had no control over this condition [psoriasis – ed], and expecially dreaded Autumn when it really flared off every year. As soon as I started the narrow band treatments with Solarc, I immediately began to see results. I mean as soon as I got thru the first week of the cautious ramp up in time. By week 2 I noticed a lot of reduction of itching, and could see the promise of this treatment method. I have only noticed even the slightest overexposure one time. It was odd because it was not a great increase in time. I think I had waited more days between treatments, and had soaked in the tub and used some soap or something that sensitized me. Other than that, it seems like the UVB narrow band is more forgiving and less prone to burn [than UVB Broadband – ed]. I am taking about 2min 50 sec. per side, mostly on my legs. I then cover up, and add another 50 sec. on the lower part of my legs. I do this about 1 time a week now. I still have resistant patches on my lower legs, but can live with it and probably should ramp up a little to see if I can clear it up. I am just trying to minimize my exposure while achieving some control. I tried for years to use Ultravate, and other topicals on large areas of lesions, and it was hugely time consuming. Your machine is amazing. I saw a dermatologist in NC for 2-3 years and took light treatments in his office 2 times a week at great cost, and never, I mean never saw the results I am getting with Solarc. Thinking back, I don’t know how I took so much time in his light booth without getting results. I did get approval from my insurance. Of course I paid my deductible, but this is the best investment I have ever made as far as my psoriasis goes. Thanks so much to you and Solarc. It is amazing to me how many people must be struggling with this condition, and they could be helped by home treatment. There is nothing out there that even approaches the relief this home treatement offers. I had to try something. The improvement in quality of life is huge! For 7 years I was miserable. It’s not gone but I can live with it now. S.N.

All is great although I’m sick of lying about where I went to get such a good tan. I haven’t had to use it very much to stay clean 2x per week and not every week. My insurance covered 100% Manulife. The equipment seems great – no worries.

For about 6-7 years I have had no control over this condition [psoriasis – ed], and expecially dreaded Autumn when it really flared off every year. As soon as I started the narrow band treatments with Solarc, I immediately began to see results. I mean as soon as I got thru the first week of the cautious ramp up in time. By week 2 I noticed a lot of reduction of itching, and could see the promise of this treatment method. I have only noticed even the slightest overexposure one time. It was odd because it was not a great increase in time. I think I had waited more days between treatments, and had soaked in the tub and used some soap or something that sensitized me. Other than that, it seems like the UVB narrow band is more forgiving and less prone to burn [than UVB Broadband – ed]. I am taking about 2min 50 sec. per side, mostly on my legs. I then cover up, and add another 50 sec. on the lower part of my legs. I do this about 1 time a week now. I still have resistant patches on my lower legs, but can live with it and probably should ramp up a little to see if I can clear it up. I am just trying to minimize my exposure while achieving some control. I tried for years to use Ultravate, and other topicals on large areas of lesions, and it was hugely time consuming. Your machine is amazing. I saw a dermatologist in NC for 2-3 years and took light treatments in his office 2 times a week at great cost, and never, I mean never saw the results I am getting with Solarc. Thinking back, I don’t know how I took so much time in his light booth without getting results. I did get approval from my insurance. Of course I paid my deductible, but this is the best investment I have ever made as far as my psoriasis goes. Thanks so much to you and Solarc. It is amazing to me how many people must be struggling with this condition, and they could be helped by home treatment. There is nothing out there that even approaches the relief this home treatement offers. I had to try something. The improvement in quality of life is huge! For 7 years I was miserable. It’s not gone but I can live with it now. S.N.

All is great although I’m sick of lying about where I went to get such a good tan. I haven’t had to use it very much to stay clean 2x per week and not every week. My insurance covered 100% Manulife. The equipment seems great – no worries.

The unit has worked great. After an initial treatment for about one month, I now only use it sporadically whenever problems flair up. S.G.

I have done so well, I am anxious for others to see the results. Of all the medications that I tried and couldn’t get any results, the UV machine was the answer to it all. I just can’t believe the difference.

The light has worked wonders for my husband. I would say his skin is probably 85-90% cleared up. It has been wonderful for him. He doesn’t itch all over like he used and he is not using a “ton” of lotion every day just to keep his skin from cracking. He does notice that if he skips a couple of days though his skin tends to start flaring up again. F.K.

My Phototherapy equipment works great. I have had several UVB broadband treatments over the years in a hospital setting with total surround units and find my unit [UVB Narrowband – ed] works quite well in comparison. I used the unit from April until mid July. My Psoriasis was cleared quite nicely except some areas on the lower legs which have always been difficult to clear completely. I was successful with my insurance claim thanks to your suggestions. I am very happy with that. My insurance company is Canada Life. I have extended group coverage with them through my Employer. Thank you for your interest.

My husband is doing great with the home phototherapy unit. It works wonders. Even though our insurance company wouldn’t cover the unit we fell it was definitely worth the money to gain my husband’s self confidence back.
