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.
I purchased 2 panels early march and have been increasing my ultraviolet light time. each week. and my skin has healed almost 100%. These are before photos and after photos.
Hi Solarc Team,
I am using your full body system for treatment of psoriasis mainly. However I must admit, it has helped my joints immensely as well. I am still in the clearing phase.
I really haven’t any real issues with the unit, only slightly burn once, I simply dialed back to the prior setting and all was well. I went as high as 2:36 but I’m now dialed back to 2:14 and seem to be okay, I use the unit three times a week as requested by the doctor.
Manulife Financial was actually great to deal with, and I received 100% coverage with my plan.
Solarc Systems team was wonderful and I’ll be honest one of the best companies I’ve ever worked with. I would highly recommend them and the Philips Bulb system. I haven’t felt this good in years.
I am thrilled with the unit and am very pleased to have rid myself of the tedium of applying ointments that don’t really work over the long term. I’ve been dealing with this disease for over 30 years, generally with progressively worse symptoms. This is the next best thing to a cure, as far as I’m concerned, and wish I would have done this long ago.
Improvements were seen within the first couple of weeks of use, with dramatic improvements after 2-1/2 months. I am currently in the maintenance phase of treatment.
I was initially treating for 3:20 per side, as per the recommendations, then continued at 4:00 minutes per side after about one month. I was completing 4 or 5 treatments per week. I recently went on a business trip for a week and have noticed that the psoriasis is still under control (just starting to come back), so will start a maintenance phase once per week.
I purchased your handheld device to treat my psoriasis. I have patches on my elbows, shins from the top of the foot to my knees on both legs and a few spots on the back of the legs, a small patch on my back and scalp.
My elbows are clear and the back patch is almost gone. I’m so thrilled ! My legs are still a work in progress though. Although my legs have improved they are no way cleared like my elbows.
I should have listened to you. You recommended I go with a full-body unit and I wished I had. I find it very difficult to treat my legs so as to not overexpose where I have already treated. Do you have any recommendations?
Otherwise, I am very pleased with your UVB therapy unit.
I’m confident that I would be in total remission now if I had purchased your larger unit.
My psoriasis is gone! Best money I have spent! I had on 70% of my body, it was mentally affecting me at that point. I started using and it is gone in 1 month! I now use only 1 once a week or as needed if stress brings a flair up. My dermatologist was amazed at the results.
I live on a small island outside Vancouver so traditional light therapy was not an option because of travel. Thank you!
For the first month, I used 3 to 4 times a week for 1.5 minutes front and back and 30 seconds on each side. Now just 2 minutes preside once a week.
I used the device for psoriasis which I have had since 1981. I have used photo-therapy for 38 years (PUVA and UVB). UVB only for last 23 years. My skin condition has improved dramatically with the home unit because I am not missing any treatments as I was when I had to attend at a Dr.s office (45 miles away).
I am currently in the maintenance phase, which is one treatment every 4 days for 2 minutes per side. I do 4 sides, front, back and two sides. If I was not stopping my treatments to go to Hawaii for two months, I would gradually reduce my treatment to once every 10 days or so and eventually stop until the psoriasis returned.
I have had no issues with the unit at all, I have had no adverse effects. I have had 26 treatments since I received the device. I started at 45 seconds per side and have worked up to 2 minutes which I have been at for the last 6 treatments. I am going to Hawaii for two months so will not have any treatments while I am away. I will wait for my psoriasis to return before starting up with treatments again. I expect I should be good for the next 6 months or so based on past experience with my skin.
I had no insurance help. Paid for the unit myself. It was costing me $20 in gas and three hours of travel time to attend a session in another city (closest available to where I live) before I got the unit. I have saved over $500 in gas if I had had to travel 26 times so far plus three hours of my day. I expect the unit will pay for itself within 3 years.
I am completely satisfied at this time and my overall experience is I should have gotten a home unit years ago. Skin has never been clearer, no missed treatments anymore and I’m saving money and time.
I see my dermatologist once a year and she is aware I have a home unit.
Feel free to use my feedback as you wish.
Very satisfied customer,
I am happy to give you feedback after using the unit for a year. I love my Solarc Phototherapy Unit and my quality of life has improved so much after using it. I use it for psoriasis and am now about 90% clear right now.
That is from using the unit all last winter, 3‐4 days a week, beginning at 1.5 minutes and going up to 5 to 7 minutes on my worst areas. I did have some redness and then just cut back on the time. So far, I haven’t had any problems with the unit.
For the first time in 15 years, after using the phototherapy unit all last winter, when May arrived, I started going out in the sun and swimming in the ocean and was about 90% clear by mid‐June and could stop using the unit for the rest of the summer. (Except for my back areas, which I still did but only about twice a week for a short time ‐‐‐light maintenance.
I am back using the phototherapy unit now about 3‐4 times a week, for about 5 minutes front/back and each side. I’m about 85% clear as it comes back in the winter, but really, it is 50/50 clearing/maintenance.
I play tennis and wear skirts now and no one stares at my legs because they are pretty much clear except for a few stubborn spots on my knees, which, after the past 15 years, I can happily live with.
I would recommend this unit to anyone with any skin issues. It works and I love it and am so thankful for your company. I wish I knew about it years ago. So, yes, you may use my response in any way you like as I hope it helps other people with skin issues learn of your product.
I can’t think of any improvements.
Thank you again,
- Much improved. 90% clear
- No problems with instructions.
- No burns or anything. I started with very short sessions and have not had to increase them
- 1 minute and 25 seconds per side
- I made a block out board for the top half of the light because my problem was from the waist down. It hangs on the hooks.
- If you made a block‐out board that would hang on the hooks and was foldable to different lengths, it would be a good accessory.
- Very satisfied. Best skin I’ve had in years and I save on prescription ointments
- 9/10 satisfaction. Consider me a promoter
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.
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.
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!!!
My hands before and after narrowband UV Light therapy using the Solarc Systems 550 hand and foot machine. These results are after a mere 7 weeks of treatment.
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.
I 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.
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!
