    I have been dealing with psoriasis for quite some time now. After using the light I can say with the utmost confidence that it works and would suggest it to anyone who is suffering from a similar condition. Could not be happier with the product as well as the service that was provided for me. All around, exceeded my expectations and I now have clear skin.
  • Avatar Graham Sparrow ★★★★★ a month ago
    I have mild eczema, and bought an 8 bulb system 3 months ago.
    I was taking phototherapy sessions at a clinic, and found it helpful ,but travel, and wait times took a lot of time, and now with Covid-19, the phototherapy is closed
    These units are well made, reliable, and safe when exposures are monitored by a dermatologist.
    They arrive ready to use, and attach to the wall easily and only 6 inches deep. My skin is almost clear, and the itch is almost all gone....
  • Avatar Eric ★★★★★ 2 months ago
    We have been using our 8 bulb vertical wall unit for several years. The results my wife has experienced have been a godsend to her MF diagnosis . She was diagnosed with mycosis fungoides ( form of cancer) which has caused her remarkable red spots over much of her body and it was freighting to us all. Initially and for the previous 5 years was diagnosed as eczema! that changes once she seen a proper dermatologist. These red blemishes left untreated could become tumours - we initially contacted Solarc about replicating hospital treatment at our home.....what we got from Solarc was more information and links to information the led us to better understand what we were dealing with - we cannot say enough good things about these people - the information provided also help us decide what equipment we needed and would be best - we reviewed all that was sent to us with our specialist assigned to my wife case. They fully endorsed our plan and reviewed all the specifications which added to our confidence … More - today we are happy to report that she is near free of any blemishes and stays that way with regular exposure to the light treatments - All i can say is that we are glad we picked up the phone and called Bruce and company at Solarc - these people are game changers and could not say enough good things.

    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.
  • Avatar Kathy D ★★★★★ 3 months ago
    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.
  • Avatar Ali Amiri ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    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!

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.

Thankyou. I’m so happy
And that’s was only a month

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.

Thanks

Psoriasis patient, SolRx 1790

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.

Laurie M., ON, Canada

Psoriasis patient, SolRx 100-Series Handheld

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,

Hello

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.

Thank you,

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,

Karen R., NS, Canada

  • 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

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 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 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.

David, Ohio, USA

Transient acantholytic dermatosis (Grover disease) patient

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.

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.

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.

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.

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, totalling 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.

Randee, ON, Canada

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.

Gwen, NY, USA

Psoriasis patient

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.

Wendy, BC, Canada

Psoriasis patient

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.

Roger, UK

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.

Pat, CA, USA

Psoriasis patient

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.

Miley, SK, Canada

Psoriasis patient

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.

Edward, MI, USA

Just wanted you to know that I received the bulbs today. Everything was in excellent condition. Thank you for including the goggles with the order. I forgot to order them when I ordered the bulbs. Again, thank you for your excellent personal and professional service.

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.

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.

Dear Mr.Bagnell Thank you for your follow up. Im glad to hear from you again, you have been extremely helpful. The 120UVB-NB Solarc/SolRx is very effective and im quite satisfied with it. However, im using the UVA instead of the UVB as recommended by my doctor. I am being cured from Alopecia Areata/Totalis, my skin condition is improved significantly, and new hair is regrowing extensively, the treatment has been 100% effective. I am so happy and will recommend this to all patients suffering from Alopecia. In regard to the user’s manual or equipment, these are so user friendly thus no problem is experienced. Thank you for your email. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Best regards,

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.

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.

We just set up the unit. We’re using it for correction of Vit D deficiency. We’ll recheck our serum Vitamin D next month after about 10 treatments. We’re taking 2 treatments/week. The manual and setup were straightforward.

Ruth, VT, USA

Vitamin D patient

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.

I 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!

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

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 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.

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

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’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.

The photo therapy light worked beautifully. It cleared up nearly 90%. We went south in October and I could actually wear shorts without feeling like a freak! Thank you I do have some “hot spots” coming back and I have been back in “therapy” again. Thank you again, it has been a lifesaver.

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!

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.

Hi Bruce: The machine is working very well. I was in such agony and now I can even wear sandals. My feet rarely split and I feel, in time, that I may get even better control. I tell most everyone about you folks.

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.

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.

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 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!!

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

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

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.

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.

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.

The light is working perfectly. My psoriasis has responded as expected with the lesions reduced by over 50%. I didn’t try to get the insurance company to buy it. I used my Flexible Medical Spending Account to get it with before-tax income. I expose myself in 4 positions, front, left sided, back and right side at 1-1/2 minutes each. I am very happy with the product. The quality is excellent, the components are conservatively sized, and the price is reasonable. It was not damaged in shipping which is a major issue with me because I have no patience dealing with that kind of problem. I certainly will recommend your product without reservation.

C.O,

Psoriasis patient

On the treatment front, I couldn’t be happier. After initial ramp, I was using the lights for 6:00 per side on a daily basis for approximately 3 months and my psoriasis has essentially cleared (with the exception of some remnants of stubborn spots on my ankles). I ramped down over 2 weeks and am now taking a break from the lights over the summer. My experience with the equipment and manuals has been flawless. The installation was very straightforward and I was happy to see the manuals included well researched, relevant information for patients with psoriasis. Many thanks for the first-rate customer focus and attention. All the best,

I have been using the Solarc lamp consistently since it was purchased and it has performed flawlessly. My skin condition (pruritus nodularis) has been steadily improving since I have been using the Solarc – after about five years of the condition getting steadily worse not withstanding a parade of different topical medications. Thanks for providing a great product.

I want to report that bulb replacing the one broken in shipment arrived today, and everything is OK. The lamp has been installed and now the machine is working on all six bulbs. Thank you for your quick response: I think your company is wonderful to work with and have already recommended you strongly to my doctor, who is one of the reputed psoriasis specialists in the city. With best wishes,

This time last year, my husband and I were leaving the dermatologist’s office feeling very frustrated and scared. He had only been off the Methotrextate drug for about six weeks and his psorasis had come back full force, perhaps worse then ever. It was so bad that his lesions were becoming arthritic and this really started to interfere with his life. When he told me he was quitting hockey I knew this was serious!! He had no choice but to go back on the drug and because of this it interfered with our plans to have a family. We were faced with looking at having to go to a fertility clinic because of the length of time he was on the drug and the three month waiting period we had to wait after he stopped taking the drug, didn’t leave us much of a chance in starting a family. We became completely overwhelmed. I became devestated. Having been brought up with faith and determination I prayed for a miracle and I received one. Today, I am happy to say that he has only been taking the treatments for about three months and his skin is unbelievable! This really has been a true blessing for us and especially for my husband. You have know idea the relief and peace of mind this has brought to the both of us. Although, there are no pitter-patter of tiny little feet running around yet, I am sure that will happen if and when it is to be. My husband goes to see his dermatologist in February. He has not seen him since he started the treatments and I can’t wait to see the look on his face when he sees his skin. As I mentioned to you in a recent e-mail we were fully re-imbursed 100% as well for the machine by Maritime Script and the machine itself has given us no problems. Thank you for your interest and I will keep you posted on his progress.

On the treatment front, I couldn’t be happier. After initial ramp, I was using the lights for 6:00 per side on a daily basis for approximately 3 months and my psoriasis has essentially cleared (with the exception of some remnants of stubborn spots on my ankles). I ramped down over 2 weeks and am now taking a break from the lights over the summer. My experience with the equipment and manuals has been flawless. The installation was very straightforward and I was happy to see the manuals included well researched, relevant information for patients with psoriasis. Many thanks for the first-rate customer focus and attention. All the best,

Dear Mr.Bagnell Thank you for your follow up. Im glad to hear from you again, you have been extremely helpful. The 120UVB-NB Solarc/SolRx is very effective and im quite satisfied with it. However, im using the UVA instead of the UVB as recommended by my doctor. I am being cured from Alopecia Areata/Totalis, my skin condition is improved significantly, and new hair is regrowing extensively, the treatment has been 100% effective. I am so happy and will recommend this to all patients suffering from Alopecia. In regard to the user’s manual or equipment, these are so user friendly thus no problem is experienced. Thank you for your email. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Best regards,

My name is Karl and I have been using a Solarc Systems UV light box for the past ten years. I am currently 27, and have had psoriasis since as long as I can remember. I have used just about every cream or lotion that you can imagine. Finally my Dermatologist suggested I start taking UV treatment. I was going to his office five times a week, traveling from Elmvale to Barrie every morning. I found that it was just too much time and expense so my Doctor suggested buying my own box. He gave me the phone number for Solarc Systems and the rest is history. As mentioned earlier I have been using this UV light for the past ten years, and I swear by it. In fact, at one point my psoriasis was so bad that I would not even go swimming is public because I was afraid what people might say. Today, I no longer have this worry. Solarc Systems UV light has allowed me to manage my psoriasis to the point that I have regained my confidence. With the exception of a couple months during the winter you wouldn’t even know that I have this skin disorder. In fact, in the ten years that I have owned a Solarc Systems light box I have had no major repairs/expenses. My light box has more than paid for itself over the years. If you have ever felt like me where you were afraid to even swim in public than I totally suggest that you contact Solarc Systems for your UV light box today. I swear by mine and I know that you would not have any regrets if you purchased one. Sincerely, Karl Loyal Solarc Systems User

At this point I am free of any signs of psoriasis. I am continuing to do daily exposures and have started cutting back on the time to try to figure out what a maintenance exposure time, should be. To me these lights are the only sensible way to cure psoriasis. It works and I have not had any signs of burning. The unit has performed perfectly. I remember being surprised to see significant healing within the first three weeks, when I first started. My doctor had told me that the skin takes six weeks to grow from the inside out. That is why I was not expecting anything for six weeks. I have had this condition for 32 years. I have seen a multitude of dermatologist and have come to believe that they are more interested in repeat business than curing people. My MD was the doctor that wrote the prescription for your system. I don’t see skin doctors anymore. Years ago, they had taken me all the way to tissue paper thin skin, with cortisone treatments.

Hi Stephen, I highly recommend your product for anyone with persistent psoriasis!! I can’t believe more people with skin disorders aren’t using your product, especially for the convenience of light-therapy treatment in your own home. I will certainly share my story with others!! I honestly thought I would never be rid of this horrible ailment, and I was afraid that I would have to take liver-damaging medications forever! Hopefully, I have seen the last of psoriasis!!

I was just cleaning up my e-mail inbox and came across your e-mail address. I wanted to tell you about my psoriasis-free skin! If you recall, I have plantar/palmer psoriasis, and have been using the Solarc system since I received it at the beginning of June. I saw my dermatologist on August 21st and she was very pleased with my progress! She has reduced my medication, and told me to continue to use the light therapy 3 times a week. I thought you would be interested in hearing about my amazing progress while using your system!!

Although I bought the unit in July last year I was sitting in the sun and away a fair bit in the summer and didn’t start using the unit until Oct. My skin had improved significantly with the sun, although some patches were still slightly itchy. The light panel continued to improve the patches. I stopped using the panel in Feb and have been totally clear since. Wonderful!!! Good instructions, I like the time and key lock. The fact that the timer has a memory from one session to the next is great. I have it mounted behind the door in the spare bedroom so it takes up very little space. Thanks so much for the unit. The help with dealing with the insurance company was invaluable, and your prompt processing of the order so that I could get the claim in on time was wonderful.

I have been using the Solarc three days a week for about 20 seconds a treatment, and am thrilled that my hands have improved to the point that I can keep my house clean and tie my kids’ shoes. My hands were so cracked and painful before, it was keeping me from doing all the things I loved. I’ve been able to completely get away from the steroid ointments that were thinning my skin so badly.

I am happy to report that the UVB-NB phototherapy treatments have been wonderful in their results. The psoriasis cleared at least 95 percent in about 2 months. Your equipment is terrific. I wish I had discovered it years earlier.

V.D.

Psoriasis patient

Thank you for checking as to how things are going. In the 1st place, I could not be happier with the results I’ve witnessed and neither could my dermatologist whom I just visited this A.M. I am a good 90% clear of plaques and look like my old self again. There are some spots left but they will be gone. My psoriasis has virtually disappeared. The equipment works perfectly as advertised. I am taking it slowly and am at 4:00 min front and 4:00 min back. I have avoided any skin burns. I do this 3-4 times per week and the convenience of having this at home is great! I am scheduled with my dermatologist every six months. He was impressed with the results and that I took the initiative to do the research. He asked for your spec sheets and asked a lot of questions. I will deliver to him some spec. sheets of your product. I am the only one in my small town of 30,000 with a Narrow band. Also of interest, the dermatologist stated that I was on the cutting edge and chose the right treatment especially after I told him I was considering Embrel. The side effects of this drug are potentially bad (suppression of the immune system) and are extremely expensive. Before I left his office he introduced me to all the nurses and mentioned that I was using UVB NarrowBand with great results.

Hey, I’m S.R., and I’m so completely impressed with your product! I was suffering from pretty severe psoriasis, and the treatments have improved my skin almost completely! No problems with the equipment or manual. Yes, you can use my feedback in marketing materials, actually, please do, I want everyone suffering from psoriasis to know that this product is available. It truly amazed me. I can never thank you enough. Sincerely,

HI STEPHEN,THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN.I HAVE BEEN TREATING PSORIASIS, THE LIGHT TREATMENT HAS BEEN GREAT. IT HAS GREATLY IMPROVED. I CONTINUE TO DO THE LIGHT TREATMENT 3 TIMES PER WEEK. WITH ALL THE MEDS I’M ON AND THE LIGHT, MY PSORIAIS IS COMPLETLY GONE. THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR CONCERN.

All in all,the treatments are working well. Even got a bit of a tan. Looking good. Also I am making sure to drink a lot of water and moisturizing my skin. I may be able to cut back on the treatments now that summer is here. Still using sunblock as I spend a lot of time outdoors. I wholeheartedly love the lamp. What an outstanding product you have developed. Great service from you and your staff. This has been a long awaited and great aid in easing my long time suffering with this disease. Thank you so much to all of you. Humble Regards,

Hello, I am very happy with the Solarc Home Phototherapy System, and you may tell anyone who wants to listen. It arrived safely and was easily installed. My psoriasis has improved greatly, without any burning or adverse effects. Thank you, Stephen, for your prompt attention to my initial inquiry. I was suffering so much, and I can not adequately describe the relief the home phototherapy has given me. Without this system, I would be fighting traffic and taking up a large part of the week traveling to the hospital for treatment. I will let you know how I fare during the summer without the unit at my disposal.

Just received your email, and to be honest my machine has been a god send! I am still in the maintenance stage, but they are 90% gone. I have had no problems with the machine at all, the set up instructions where clear and precise. My Dermatologist is amazed as to how well they have cleared. I have recommended this machine to my brother as he has psoraisis as well. I thank you again for providing such a AWESOME machine for home photo therapy treatment. Again it has been a god send for me. Sincerely,

The Solarc/SolRx is fantastic! The instructions were easy to follow and the Unit is designed perfectly. I do like the black gate that protects the bulbs and the reflective backing surrounding the lights. It’s very straightforward, efficient, convenient, safe and compact. Also, the packaging of the unit for shipping was awesome! I’m amazed at how quickly my pigment (vitiligo treatment) is coming back, especially since I have been using the phototherapy moderately. I have not burned myself at all because I keep the timeframe low and follow the chart in the manual accordingly. Actually, I feel really healthy. I am so impressed with it that I am considering the feet/ hand unit. I would definitely recommend the Solarc/SolRx from this company to others. I am impressed and thankful for your email follow-up. At this time, I can’t think of any other ways to improve the Solarc/SolRx because I am thoroughly impressed. Possibly including a storage cover to cover it up when not being used similar to a sewing machine jacket, is a suggestion. I think the Solarc/SolRx home therapy is an effective way to treat these skin conditions instead of patients having to make frequent hospital visits. Here is a small recap of my vitiligo voyage: I am very thankful and grateful that I could be prescribed this derma light since it took 4 months to see a dermatologist in order to be referred to the Ottawa Civic Hospital Derma Clinic to then be put on a 6 month waiting list for Vitiligo treatment. However after patiently waiting, two years later, I find out by diligently calling to be told that there are too many patients to treat and the hospital cannot accommodate everyone and therefore will no longer take any patients. I was very frustrated to see great results in other people with vitiligo whom luckily were treated sooner and to know that there was effective vitiligo treatment available in Canada. My Family Physician was amazed to see pigment results already. I will be seeing a dermatologist at regular 6 month intervals to monitor me. I will ask the specialist how to maintain my pigment once and “IF” I return to one pigment color. I’m unsure once the results are final, how often i will then have to treat myself for maintenance purposes. I’m assuming its less than the initial treatment. Again, thank you for your considerate email.

J. is treating psoriasis. All I can say is Wow and Thank you. He started on 11/8 at 4 min total time every other day and worked his way up to 12 min on 12/8. By 1/8 the psoriasis was completely gone. He never once burned. It even got it out of his scalp. He is only doing maintenance treatments now for 8 min. every week to 10 days. This is so much better than the Dr’s office unit. Their full booth at 10 min per side burned a few times. After 6 months of appointments, 2 times a week, still had all of the psoriasis patches. Must be better bulbs. And no driving and doing this on the Doctors schedule. (the $445 (1720 miles) gas savings alone has helped pay for the unit.) This treatment should be more readily available to patients. Thanks so much.

I purchased the Home Phototherapy System for the severe psoriasis I have had on my hands for the past 8 years or more. The machine was very expensive but I am happy I purchased it as it has helped me a great deal. Since I started using the system my hands do not break out in cuts and bleed. Although it hasn’t totally cleared up my psoriasis it has relieved it immensly. Before there were times when I could not use my hands because of the deep openings in them, I haven’t had that problem since I started using the phototherapy machine.

Most defintely! Because of the forms and direction I received from Solarc, it was so much easier and less stressful than if I’d had to stumble through the process on my own.

The 550UVB-NB Phototherapy System is the best thing I’ve ever done for my psoriasis! I found it to be very well constructed equipment, easy to understand instructions and I even liked the packaging it was shipped in. The best part is, it worked for my psoriasis! I am basically in my maintenance stage now. Overall I am happy with my unit. I recommend anyone looking for treatment of psoriasis to get one. Thank you.

Thank you for your kind concern for my patient. He has been using the Solarc 1780 for a few months now. The machine arrived very promptly in perfect condition. Set up was fast and easy. He has had small plague psoriasis for 10 years and has never been so lucky as to have a remission from local, photo, retinoids or herbal treatments. We think the machine is great. It has saved my patient a lot of time and money. There hasn’t been any problem so far. Everything considered, we think it’s the best on the market. Yours sincerely,

I started my treatments at the beginning of May, this year. My psoriasis responded very well to the treatments, prompting my dermatologist to say that I showed some of the best response he had ever seen. The condition did, indeed, improve significantly after about five to six weeks. The User’s Manual was very informative, and I found no errors or incomplete information. (I write user manuals for a living.) Thank you for your interest. And thank you for the unit. It has made a tremendous difference in my day-to-day life.

There is only one word I can say. Success. I had psoriasis covering probably around 80% of my body. It was so severe. It is now gone. Shortly after receiving the light, and a couple weeks of religious use, the marks were starting to fade. Now they are completely gone, except for a couple dry skin looking spots on my elbows. To be honest, I haven’t even been doing maintenance for some time now; still nothing has come back. There were no problems with the user manual. Your service has been fantastic. Nothing I can think of to improve. So, to sum it up. The use of the light was SO easy. We mounted it on the back of my closet door. It cleared my psoriasis up so quickly. And ive never been happier. I can move easily, I’m not itchy, not bleeding.. I’ve worn shorts for the first time this summer in 3 years. I can’t thank you guys enough Thank you again!!

YES, MY WHOLE BODY SKIN CONDITION HAS IMPROVED SIGNIFICANTLY. UVB PHOTOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY T REATMENT THAT IS EFFECTIVE WHEN COMPARED TO TOPICAL HYDROCORTIZONE PRESCRIPTIONS OVER THE LAST 25 YEARS. UVB PHOTOTHERAPY HAS SIGNIFICANTLY CONTRIBUTED TO THE CONTROL OF MY PSORIASIS.

I purchased my 1760UVB-NB Phototherapy System 4 months ago because my psoriasis no longer responded to the creams and ointments prescribed by my dermatologist. I am extremely pleased with the equipment. I have not achieved full clearing but I am having very good results. I never had UVB phototherapy at a clinic or hospital before but I received very good advice from the prescribing dermatologist and your very well written User’s Manual gave me the additional information I needed to start my treatments safely. At the start of my UVB treatments I had psoriasis lesions on my knees, the front of my lower legs, my left calf, top of my left foot, the front of my right thigh, the side of my left thigh, my lower back, both elbows, left forearm, top of my right hand, etc. After 40 treatments most lesions were completely gone but the spots on my knees and lower legs only improved very slightly. I then realized that when I stood with my stomach 10 inches away from the bulbs my knees and lower legs stood 15 inches away and I think that’s too far out. So now I block the light from the upper half of the machine and I treat the front of my legs only at a distance of 10 inches. After a total of 55 treatments (40 frontside and backside + 15 just the front of my legs), the spots on my knees and lower legs are flattened and fading away slowly. With any luck I should be in maintenance phase soon. My insurance did not reimburse me but I really don’t mind paying for it myself considering the huge positive impact it brings to my quality of life. To me, it’s well worth every penny. The equipment was delivered at my door in perfect condition, it is top quality, it functions flawlessly and is safe to use. I am truly impressed with your prompt service and professionalism. I cannot think of anything you can do to improve your equipment or your service as you already are way up there. Best Regards,

Hello Bruce It’s been a few months since I purchased the Solarc equipment and had my husband install it in my walk in closet. Bruce, I can’t begin to express my delight in making this purchase. I thank you so much for working with me until we found a suitable application. After 27 years of misery with psoriasis and from being covered approx 50 per cent, I am ecstatic to report that it has disappeared. With the exception of a few spots on my hands and feet my body has finally recovered. Where have you been all my life!?! I feel emancipated and am able to show my legs after all these years. I am so amazed by my results that I can’t believe it’s me when I look at my legs and arms. My deepest appreciation for all you have done. I will never forget you as you have been the integral part in my recovery. Thank you so much.

The treatment was indeed working to treat my vitiligo. I was noticing considerable improvement in pigmenting of my skin. My vitiligo is quite intensive, however, so there was still going to be quite a bit more treatment required. As for the lights and manual, I have had no problems.

I am being cured from Alopecia Areata/Totalis, my skin condition is improved significantly, and new hair is regrowing extensively, the treatment has been 100% effective. I am so happy and will recommend this to all patients suffering from Alopecia. In regard to the user’s manual or equipment, these are so user friendly thus no problem is experienced.
