When vitiligo took away coloring in his chin, a 45-year-old man turned to Tampa dermatologist Dr. Seth Forman for help. With regular Psoria-Light™ treatments, the spot on the man’s chin began to regain its coloring.
Now, a few years later, the man has returned to Forman when his vitiligo had caused his skin to lose pigmentation yet again.
“Unfortunately, recommended follow-up appointments were missed,” says the Tampa dermatologist. “We are able to repigment his skin with Psoria-Light™ thought, just like the first time.”
Psoria-Light™ is a groundbreaking UV LED medical device that has been used to treat psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo, alopecia areata and other UV-treatable skin disorders. Originally developed for NASA and the United States military, the Deep UV LED technology allows doctors, like Forman, to provide less toxic and noninvasive treatment options for common skin conditions.
Currently, the Tampa dermatologist is the only doctor in the United States to use the technology.
“To be able to help individuals living with difficult and hard-to-manage skin conditions is incredible,” says Forman. “With the right treatment and proper follow-ups and care, it is possible to control skin disorders like vitiligo and psoriasis.”
The Tampa dermatologist’s patient undergoing another round of treatment with Psoria-Light™ for his vitiligo is already seeing results.
