The revolutionary 308 Excimer System is the only handheld, highly effective Excimer System for monochromatic UVB therapy 308 Excimer System
308 – Wavelength Optimal wavelength for UV-therapy is 300-310 nm UVC: higher risk of skin cancer UVA: more skin aging effects, effective on Psoriasis and Dermatitis, not so effective on Vitiligo NB UVB: effective and safe 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 A B C 280 320 Safety UV VISIBLE IR Efficiency 300-310nm = best ratio Efficiency / Safety
308 – UVB Phototherapy – Spectral Targeting Excimer lasers and excimer systems emit narrow-band UVB Only Excimer systems are optimal for spectral targeting ! 308 Excimer systems Filtered narrow-band light Broad-band systems
308 – UVB Phototherapy – Lesion Targeting The Excimer system offers lesion targeting UV booths for the entire body, expose healthy skin to UV light. This can result in over-exposure to certain areas. With the 308 Excimer System treatment is focused on lesions only, no healthy skin is exposed to UV radiation.
308 Excimer System Impressive Effects UVB radiation on the skin has a stimulating effect on the skin’s immune system. This makes it possible to successfully treat skin diseases that are caused by disruptions of the immune system.
