Successfully Treat Psoriasis with UV Phototherapy Lamps

post 95

Ultraviolet light is used in phototherapy lamps to successfully treat psoriasis and many other skin conditions.  Phototherapy, also called light therapy, is proven to provide successful treatment for many health conditions such as:

  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • Vitiligo
  • Jaundice
  • Depression
  • Seasonal affective disorder

Using the right type of UV light therapy lamp is critical to achieving successful treatment. In fact, using the wrong type of lamp could make symptoms worse or not provide any benefit at all. It is important to follow your doctor’s orders and use a UV phototherapy lamp designed specifically for your condition.

The National Psoriasis Foundation endorses the use of phototherapy lamps for effective treatment of psoriasis under the care of a physician. Tanning beds to not provide the right wavelength of ultraviolet light and may damage the skin or make conditions worse.

LightSources Manufacturers High-Quality Phototherapy Lamps

Working with a reputable UV light therapy lamp supplier with in-depth knowledge of UV radiation will ensure that you receive the right type of lamp with the proper wavelength output.  UV radiation is emitted in either UVA, UVB or UVC wavelengths, with UVB wavelengths proven to successfully slow down the production of new skin cells.  This allows the skin to heal and improves symptoms of psoriasis.

UVB wavelengths in a narrow band and UVA emissions combined with a medication called Psoralen also provides relief to some patients suffering with psoriasis and may be referred to as PUVA treatment.  Patients using phototherapy for psoriasis may see an improvement in their symptoms as quickly as a few weeks or up to a few months depending on the severity of their condition.

UV Technology Provides Water Sterilization Solutions


Ultraviolet (UV) technology is proven to provide powerful disinfection and sterilization properties to surfaces, air and water.  Ultraviolet radiation immediately kills viruses, bacteria, germs and harmful microorganisms within seconds upon contact. UV water sterilization systems are utilized worldwide in many applications such as:

  • Wastewater treatment
  • Drinking water for municipalities
  • Aquaculture
  • Ballast water treatment in ships
  • Many other water treatment applications

Wastewater Treatment

UV water sterilization systems are used in water reclamation and wastewater treatment applications worldwide to deliver safe water to cities, towns, villages, rural areas and farms. UV water treatment systems are safe and effective and leave no harmful chemical byproducts.

Drinking Water for Municipalities

UV water sterilization systems treat drinking water for municipalities to remove harmful bacteria and parasites known to cause illnesses. Ultraviolet radiation kills some germs that chlorine doesn’t and leaves no harmful chemical residue.

Ballast Water Treatment in Ships

The Ballast Water Management Convention was recently ratified by enough countries and passed for global enforcement, requiring all ships that sail in international waters to have an onboard ballast water treatment system.  Contaminated ballast water is one of the greatest threats to the sustainability of the planet’s oceans. UV technology is effectively used in onboard ballast water treatment systems and meets all regulations including US Coast Guard approval.

Aquaculture Treatment with UV Systems

UV systems are used in many aquaculture applications to clean and sterilize water for marine life. UV treatment systems are used in many aquaculture applications such as in fish hatcheries and reserves to promote healthy marine life.

UV water treatment systems are an important part of these water applications and many others to effectively kill germs and harmful contaminants in water.

Ballast Water Management Requirements and Treatment Systems

post 110

Ballast water treatment systems which meet US Coast Guard approval are now required on all ships traveling through international water.  The Ballast Water Management Convention was adopted in 2004 in an effort to control the spread of invasive aquatic species. With the continual increase in international trade and the practice of most ships using ballast water in their hulls, contaminated ballast water is causing bio invasions with the introduction of harmful, new invasive species which devastate foreign ports.  

Contaminated ballast water is seen as one of the greatest threats to the sustainability of the planet’s oceans. The most recent global enforcement of the Ballast Water Management Convention (BWMC) took effect September 8, 2017 and affects all ships traveling through international waters.  This is a landmark step towards halting the spread of harmful invasive species which cause substantial economic loss and affect the biodiversity of natural aquatic habitats.

The BWMC enforces standards for all vessels to maintain a ballast water treatment system with all ships required to carry a record book with an international ballast water management certificate.  Ultraviolet (UV) water treatment systems meet the BWMC requirements, US Coast Guard approval and provide many advantages.

Advantages of UV Ballast Water Treatment Methods

UV ballast water treatment systems harness the power of UVC radiation which is proven effective at eradicating harmful microorganisms yet is completely safe to humans.  UV germicidal lamps emit wavelengths at an effective 254 nm which instantly kills viruses, bacteria and harmful aquatic organisms.  There are many benefits with UV sterilization systems such as highly effective germ killing power and long-lasting effectiveness with little to no maintenance.

The LightSources Group offers UVC germicidal lamps proven in demanding water treatment applications. We provide UV germicidal solutions for water treatment and air treatment systems.
