New to Phototherapy?
Phototherapy is the use of light to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, and other skin disorders. In treatments, the skin is exposed to a special type of light which comes from a medical device commonly referred to as a phototherapy unit.
Phototherapy vs. Biologics
While biological drug therapies have become popular in the last few years, it is important to evaluate the safety of these medications. Every one of the following drugs has had numerous adverse effects and deaths where the drug was listed as the primary suspected cause.
"My skin is completely healed..."
- Eric, CA

Frequently Asked Questions
Daavlin warrants its lamps for sixty (60) days against defects in material and workmanship and to operate at the time of initial installation in an electrical circuit having the correct characteristics for proper lamp operation. No warranty is made as to useful lamp life or as to reduction in ultraviolet output due to any cause.
It is important to know that some topicals may actually hinder treatment. For example, some lotions contain UV absorbing ingredients similar to those used in sunscreens and may block much of the benefit of phototherapy treatment.
Other topicals and medications may photosensitize your skin. Watch out for lotions containing photosensitizing agents or essential oils such as lime, lemon, or orange. Such ingredients could cause an unexpected erythemal reaction when exposed to the ultraviolet energy delivered during a phototherapy treatment. In addition, coal tar, psoralens, and retinoids will consistently photosensitive your skin to UV light. For a detailed list of photosensitizers, visit this link: https://www.daavlin.com/dont-see-red-know-these-photosensitizers/. We recommend speaking with your doctor about topicals and medications that may impact your phototherapy treatments.
Depending on the device being used, special electrical upgrades such as adding electrical options of 220V or 440V, may be required. Daavlin recommends all electrical work be performed by a certified electrician to ensure it is done safely and adheres to local building codes.
It’s usually best to keep uninvolved skin covered with clothing or sunscreen during your treatments, but follow your doctor’s advice. The most important thing about covering “healthy” skin is to be consistent, and always use the same covering techniques for each treatment. (External genitalia should be covered during PUVA therapy.)
Every Daavlin phototherapy device has a label near the power inlet with a voltage and frequency specification. If the voltage of the country that you are traveling to matches the label, you may use it. If you would like to use your device in countries with a different voltage, contact Daavlin technical support for more information. Depending on the exact machine you have, there are a range of possible solutions.

We understand there is no standard treatment solution for everyone with a photoresponsive disease. That is why we have a multitude of different devices with specific characteristics that make them ideal for a particular scenario.

The length of time varies from patient to patient and between conditions. Typically psoriasis patients will see much faster results than vitiligo patients. The most important thing is to be consistent with your treatments, and to follow your doctor’s treatment plan.
