Phototherapy Lamps for Effective Psoriasis Treatment

post 114

Phototherapy is using light to provide a therapeutic treatment and is proven to be highly effective at treating and curing many medical conditions.  Light therapy is used worldwide to help patients suffering from a host of various ailments.  It is important to know which type of light works best for specific conditions, as the wrong lighting may not help at all or could worsen some conditions.

Working with your doctor and respected lighting and phototherapy lamp providers can provide assurance that you are receiving the right type of treatment for your condition.

Phototherapy Successfully Treats Psoriasis and Other Skin Conditions

The National Psoriasis Foundation endorses the uses of phototherapy to treat psoriasis when under a doctor’s care.  Indoor tanning beds do not provide the same effective wavelength of UV light to treat psoriasis and can further damage skin.  It is important to use the right type of phototherapy lamps when treating psoriasis.

UVB light is effective in treating psoriasis by slowing down the production of new skin cells which allows the skin to heal. Patients may be sent home with a special phototherapy lamp which emits the proper amount of UVB rays.

Light therapy is also highly effective at treating other skin conditions such as eczema, acne, vitiligo and jaundice.

Light Therapy for Jaundice Treatment

UV light is used in hospitals in the newborn unit to treat jaundice in newborn babies.  Jaundice occurs when the liver does not break down toxins like a fully developed or well-functioning liver would.  UV light effectively breaks down bilirubin in the blood which is why these lamps are often referred to as ‘bili’ lights.  Phototherapy lamps used to treat jaundice may even be sent home with new parents to help nurture their baby’s liver to a healthy state.

LightSources and our valued partners represent the leading high-tech lamp designers and manufacturers available in the lamp industry today.  We provide lamps and lighting solutions to a multitude of applications including patented products for light therapy treatment.  Contact us today to learn more about our proven solutions with phototherapy lamps.

UV Lamps Provide Effective Acne Treatment


Acne is a widespread problem in the United States, with at least 85% of the nation’s adolescents suffering from this troublesome skin condition.  In some cases, acne continues into adulthood and leaves millions of people scarred when the condition is severe.  Conventional treatments might work for some, but they are not without complications and mixed results.  Antibiotics can be helpful but may build up an antibiotic resistance which has become an issue in the United States.  Topical treatments can be harsh leaving the skin feeling very dried out.

Light Therapy Proving to Be Effective on Acne

Light therapy, also known as phototherapy, is proving to be a solution for many that have been waiting for a safe, clean and effective acne treatment.  Combining blue light therapy with red light therapy is proven to effectively treat acne, bringing relief to long time sufferers.  Light is broken down into colors, then measured with wavelengths, known as nanometers (nm).  Blue light emitted at 415nm has strong antibacterial effects and is very effective at killing the bacteria causing acne to prevent breakouts.  Red light at a wavelength of 600nm to 700nm is proven to soothe inflammation while stimulating cell regeneration, healing and repair.

LightSources is a Leading Supplier of Phototherapy Lamps

The LightSources group is recognized around the world for developing high-tech, high-performing lamps and lighting solutions for a multitude of applications, including our phototherapy lamps.  Phototherapy is proven useful treatment for a variety of ailments, especially skin conditions.  Light therapy is used to treat acne, psoriasis and eczema to name only a few conditions.

How to Find the Best Mercury Lamp Supplier

post 100

Mercury lamps are proven to be cost effective with energy saving efficiencies, saving energy when compared to incandescent and fluorescent lighting.  LightSources and European partner, LightTech, are leading suppliers of a wide variety of lamps used in specialty applications around the globe.  We have developed patented products with proprietary technology designed to provide longer lasting life with high performance in all lamps, including our low-pressure mercury lamps (LP Hg lamps) used in various germicidal applications.

LP Hg lamps developed by the LightSources group convert up to 40% of electrical energy into effective ultraviolet (UV) energy in short wavelengths providing maximum UVC germicidal sterilization.

Powerful Mercury Lamps Developed by LightSources and LightTech

An electric arc used with vaporized mercury is used to produce light in mercury lamps, usually in a phosphor coated lamp.  The phosphor blend coating the lamp helps to offset any blue green tint that the mercury vapor creates, which casts an unflattering illumination in many public places.   The phosphor coating assists in emitting a whiter light that is pleasing to the eye in public places, so it is often used in large arenas and venues.

Long-Life™ Proprietary Technology

Long-Life technology developed by LightSources and LightTech extend lamp product life with a specialty coating, providing high performance up to end of product life cycle, extending the operating life of your UVC mercury lamps.

LightSources and LightTech supply OEMs large and small with a wide variety of innovative lighting technologies.  Our low-pressure mercury lamps are available in quartz or soft glass, with either ozone free or ozone generating lamps, custom designed for your unique application.

Our experienced and skilled engineers work closely with customers to assist with development of proprietary lamp components to increase your brand awareness.  We provide high performing long lasting lamps used in germicidal applications for air, water and surface disinfection, UV curing processes, fluorescent lamps used in signs and industrial applications, and phototherapy lamps providing several health benefits.

Innovative Supplier of Quartz Lamp Products


The LightSources group consists of recognized global leaders in the lighting industry, providing proven solutions for any lighting application including soft glass, quartz lamps, fluorescent lamps and UV lamp solutions.   Our experienced team of valued partner companies provide the most innovative solutions with proprietary and proven technologies available in the lighting industry today.

Our Quartz lamp solutions are available in either ozone free or ozone generating technologies, with standard or high output models.  Our mercury vapor lamps offer powerful UV germicidal technologies, emitting precisely 253.7 nanometer (nm) wavelength for the most effective germicidal applications.

Quartz lamps are proven to be stronger and more resistant to breaking over glass or soft glass, delivering added strength and protection against breakage.  Quartz is resistant to solarization, which happens when UV radiation changes the ability of lamps and optical components to transmit UV light.  Quartz allows for the most UV transmission with minimal absorption, providing long lasting high performance with maximum quality output.

Quartz remains cooler than glass lamp products, which provides added transparency in many applications allowing for maximum UV transmittance with higher luminous efficacy.  The LightSources group provides patented products designed for maximum operating life with proprietary technologies.

The LightSources group consists of the most innovative and technologically advanced companies in the lighting industry, employing knowledgeable fluorescent and UV experts along with highly skilled design engineers for any lighting application.  We understand the technology behind the products.

Our Quartz halogen lamps are incandescent lamps enveloped in quartz instead of glass with a filament in the bulb surrounded by a halogen gas which is typically iodine.  Quartz iodine lamps contain a tungsten filament that reacts with the iodine to allow for maximum lumen output without blackening of the bulb.

LightSources, along with our valued partner LightTech, offer the most advanced lighting solutions available in the industry.  We provide quick turn around with rapid prototyping, satisfying the demanding requirements of OEMs worldwide with quality lamps, delivered on-time.   If you are searching for a high-quality supplier of lamp products and components, including fluorescent, UV, glass, soft glass or quartz lamp products, contact us for the most advanced products available today.
