Monochromatic UVB therapy for Psoriasis and Vitiligo
The 308 Excimer system is a handheld system for intense monochromatic UVB therapy, treating autoimmune diseases of the skin such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Using a 308nm wavelength which replicates the wavelength of the excimer laser, Excimer 308 allows you to treat patients quickly and effectively with the benefits of a lighter weight system that offers greater flexibility, lower investment costs, no consumables and greater ease of use.
- Clinically-proven- with effectiveness matching that of an excimer laser
- Focused treatment- with maximum protection of surrounding skin
- Pain-free with no downtime
- Compact, portable system
- Cost-effective- with low operation costs and maintenance-free technology
The 308 nm wavelength of the 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM is ideally suited for the therapy of UV sensitive skin diseases such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Additionally, the system can be used to treat other skin diseases that are based on a dysfunction of the immune system. UVB radiation has an immune modeling effect, which can normalize pathologically changed cellular activities.
Ideal indications for the 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM are persistent, localized lesions. The variable power density reaches from 50 to 6,000 mJ/cm² and can be adapted to the individual patient and findings.
For psoriasis, the treatment results with the 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM are identical to those of an excimer laser – clinically proven. Thanks to the high power density and the lesion targeting, the 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM is the outstanding treatment solution for therapy of localized, persistent psoriasis plaques on elbows and knees, on hands and feet, and on the scalp. In clinical tests, persistent psoriasis plaques were visibly reduced or even vanished completely after only eight to ten sessions.
Narrow-band UVB light therapy is said to be the most effective approach for the treatment of vitiligo — with the fewest side effects. The 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM gets results for vitiligo treatments that verifiably match those of an excimer laser. The therapy with the 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM leads to a re-pigmentation of the treated skin surfaces. With the selective application of UVB radiation on the lesions, the surrounding healthy tissue is protected.
Other indications for UVB light therapy
Besides psoriasis and vitiligo, other indications respond well to the narrowband UVB light therapy, including
- alopecia areata
- mycosis fungoides
- diverse atopic eczema, atopic dermatitis
- erythema anulare centrifugum (EAC) and much more.
The 308nm wavelength is ideally suited for treatment of UV sensitive skin diseases such as psoriasis and vitiligo. The 308 Excimer system may also be used to treat other skin diseases that stem from immune system dysfunction. UVB radiation has an immune modeling effect which can normalize pathologically altered cellular activities. The ideal indications are persistent, localized lesions.
Narrow-band UVB light therapy is considered the most effective approach for the treatment of vitiligo- with the fewest side effects. The 308 Excimer achieves results that verifiably match those of an excimer laser, restoring pigment in the affected skin. With selective application of UVB radiation on the lesions, surrounding healthy tissue remains unexposed and protected.
Additional indications for UVB light therapy include:
Diverse atopic eczema and atopic dermatitis
Erythema anulare centrifugum (EAC)
With high power density and focused lesion targeting, the 308 Excimer is an outstanding treatment solution for therapy of localized, persistent psoriasis plaques on the elbows, knees, hands, feet and scalp. Treatment results are identical to those of an excimer laser, with persistent plaques visibly reduced or eliminated after 5-10 treatment sessions.
The 308 Excimer system uses a 308nm wavelength to effectively target skin lesions. The 16 cm² spot can be applied directly onto localized plaques, or masks may be mounted to adapt the spot size and shape to smaller areas. A variable power density ranges from 50 to 6,000 mJ/cm² and can be adapted to the needs of the individual patient. The system enables you to apply high, therapeutically-effective doses of monochromatic UVB light while leaving healthy skin unexposed and protected.
The 308 Excimer system:
Is a handheld device that can be stored and transported in its own compact carrying case.
The kit includes accessories such as masks and protective goggles allowing you to administer monochromatic UVB therapy at various locations.
“The 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM revolutionized the therapy of itchy and inflammatory skin diseases! All indications of the excimer laser can be effectively treated with fast, long-lasting results. At the same time it is a small, handy and very user-friendly device.”
Dr. Dirk Gröne,
“Since 2001 we performed more than 10.000 treatments with our excimer laser (…). We can tell that the response time of the clinical effects in relation to the number of treatments of the Quantel Derma 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM is absolutely equal to the excimer laser.”
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Amon,
“In the past I used the excimer laser for vitiligo and psoriasis with good clinical results. Now I use the handheld 308 excimer system because it is much more convenient and gives me the same clinical results. “
