Re: UVA and skin conditions

Oh for Gawd's sake already......

Gagoo -- for you and MOST salon owners, know that the most typical, simplistic and long standing relief for psorasis comes from UVB. Without making medical claims, all tanning beds emit some UVB. For those that are primarily interested in getting their psorasis to go away, and not look like beach bunnies, regular use of a low wattage (e.g. Level 1) bed will generally do the trick.

Most our clients with psorasis issues sign up for EFT on Level 1, come sporadically other than when they have an outbreak, then bulk up a little on sessions until it subsides again.

If they want an hour dissertation on it, give them Eileen's number.

Re: UVA and skin conditions

yeah, just get in the bed and tan already. There is no "high UVB" tanning beds. Just tanning beds that meter to 4MED MAX....meaning JUST USE ANY BED THAT YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH.

Re: UVA and skin conditions

Thank you everyone for your replies. Will continue to do research. Have battled palmer pustular psorisis for 10 years. Tanning beds do seem to work. (but I have to admit the dr office light box did better)
Thanks!

Re: UVA and skin conditions

I was going to make the same point that Don Smith has, but he beat me to it. The "new era" lamps such as 9k90, Sig HP's & Sol Glass type lamps have a much lower UVB percent, however that % is lower in the spectrum, closer to the UVC spectrum. So the little UVB there is usually acts much stronger. Also there is much lower UVA˛ & much higher UVAš. Looks like the Sol Glass lamps may be the ideal lamp for such applications.

This thread is hillarious if you all knew what I was thinking it would top it with a cherry.

Re: UVA and skin conditions

The skin is the body's first barrier against bacteria that cause infections. Even though many bacteria live on the surface of our skin, healthy skin can usually protect us from infection. However, bacterial skin infections can affect a small spot or may spread, affecting a large area. They can range from a treatable infection to a life-threatening skin condition.

Any one who has a break in the skin is at risk for infection. However, certain conditions or diseases can put a person at greater risk for infection, including the following:

* diabetes (which causes poor blood flow to the skin)

* acquired immune deficiency syndrome, or AIDS (because of a depressed immune system that is unable to fight the infection)

* skin damaged by sunburn or scratching

There are many types of bacterial skin infections that require clinical care by a physician or other healthcare professional. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.

If you cannot find the information in which you are interested, please visit the Dermatology Online Resources page in this web site for an Internet/World Wide Web address that may contain additional information on that topic.

Re: UVA and skin conditions

I, too, have psoriasis. Tanning has always helped & I did see a dermatologist 14 yrs ago. I stopped seeing a dermaterrorist after his technician FRIED the crap out of me in their photo therapy booth. she was supposed to put me in for 30 seconds & set it for 3 minutes. I was soooo burnt I couldn't wear anything but sweats & sweatshirt for 3 days. Talk about painful!!(was in February-1994). this is one reason derms/dr's get on my nerves w/ skin cancer scares because they are just as responsible as they SAY we/beds are & to heck w/ the facts!!
Anyway, in the last 3 yrs my psoriasis has been under wonderful control. I tan 1 - 4 times a week all year in all my beds/booths. I always use lotion & I use myself as an example to most of my customers w/ psoriasis. Since there is a variety of types, some need the stronger meds. I also use Psorcon E because every now & then I get a small breakout somewhere(face, etc). I like it best as it's not a steriod based cream.
Gagoo-if the booth at dr's office works better, maybe the tanning bed you are using has old lamps or you're not going frequently enough to zap them. Try a stronger bed. Copays are killer at a dr's office-tanning is cheaper.
