Psoria-LightRenowned for his innovation into researching and adopting new skin treatment technologies, Tampa dermatologist Dr. Seth Forman announces he’s added a new technology to his arsenal of treatment options. It’s called Psoria-Light™ and it’s being touted as the latest development in the treatment of common skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.

Psoria-Light harnesses the power of phototherapy, delivering targeted doses of UVA and UVB rays to the affected areas of skin. Forman’s Tampa dermatology practice is the only practice in the world to use the new breakthrough technology to treat eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo and other less common skin conditions.

“The ability to harness UVA and UVB rays into targeted phototherapy is the technological breakthrough that psoriasis and eczema sufferers have been hoping for,” Forman says. “This treatment is more sophisticated and provides excellent results for patients.”

Psoria-Light has been recognized as a Certified Space Technology, a distinction awarded for using technology derived from use in space. Combining this and other patent-pending technological breakthroughs, including advanced safety features and an HD digital camera, allows Forman to easily track a patient’s treatment and progress.

“Psoria-Light features an innovative digital camera that we can use to take high-definition pictures of the treated areas, both before and after the treatment. The ability to track the progress on computers and the use of high-definition pictures allows the patient to get the kind of treatment that will make their quality of life get back to normal,” the Tampa dermatologist says.

The National Psoriasis Foundation describes psoriasis as the most prevalent autoimmune disease in the United States, affecting more than 7.5 million Americans. Treatments for psoriasis usually consist of drugs that have potentially toxic side effects. The treatments issued at the Tampa dermatology practice that use phototherapy eliminate the need for these potentially hazardous drugs.

“Psoria-Light treatments are painless and eliminate the use of other drugs. The treatments are also reimbursed or covered by many medical insurers including Medicare,” Forman says.
