0:06
for me this this treatment 0:09
has changed my life completely i mean 0:11
I struggled with this for nineteen years 0:14
and this is a big deal to me this is my body and along with my body is my heart and
0:18 my mind and my soul and and
0:21 being able to look at in the mirror and and
0:24 not be sad about this is a wonderful thing
for me 0:37
the emotional impact of psoriasis and vitilgo in the life is significant
0:40 skin diseases unlike internal conditions are
visible to everybody 0:45
psychologically when you walked into an interview or a high-pressure situation
0:49 and you’ve got to be in your skin’s but it’s
quite bothersome 0:52
I’ve had vitiligo for about eleven years now
0:56 uh… I was as diagnosed at age eighteen
0:58 of course with just a couple of spots I believe
on my hands and 1:03
And around my eyes at that point 1:08
And uh I guess it was kind of hoping for the first year so that would go away but of
1:11 course it’s a progressive disease
1:13 And uh kept getting worse. One of the joys
of dermatology is the ability to 1:18
practice phototherapy 1:20
And a number of patients who came in after many sessions Jessie was in tears the first
1:25 Time she started phototherapy and after 15-20
treatments 1:29
I came in to see how she was doing 1:30
she jumped up out of the chair showed me her tummy and said look it’s all gone
1:34 You need to be able to get up in the
1:36 morning and get out of the shower and look
at myself in the mirror 1:40
And to see nothing but smooth skin no red splotches and to be able to touch my skin
1:46 And have it be soft and not be bumpy and red
1:49 These things for me are
1:52 has changed my life and he’s really truly
changed my life i think we’re without 1:56
having psoriasis or vitiligo it’s impossible to understand what these
2:00 people go through
2:01 It’s terribly emotionally trying for them
2:03 and for the first time in their life their
skin is clear it’s 2:08
all the same color and uh… they can walk around in bathing suits seeking
2:12 they can wear
2:13 fancy prom dresses they can go in the swimming
pool 2:20
Phototherapy is basically using different types of ultraviolet light
2:24 To treat the skin
2:25 and there are three types the oldest is broadband
uvb which has been 2:31
Out there for years it can treat psoriasis and vitiligo but it can cause a redness takes
2:36 many sessions to work
2:38 It doesn’t work in the patients with hard
to control diseases that’s the oldest type 2:43
The second type is PUVA 2:44
which is a new modallity that is derived from ancient Egyptian technology
2:50 where you take a pill
2:51 and then you’re exposed to ultraviolet a type
of light 2:55
it was very quickly works very well however over several treatment sessions
3:01 You do increase the chance of developing premature
aging and skin cancer 3:06
the third option is the cutting-edge type of phototherapy
3:11 called narrowband
3:12 phototherapy
3:13 Narrowband phototherapy combines the benefits
of PUVA and rapid clearance and 3:18
working very well with patients 3:20
with the benefits of broadband UVB where you don’t have as much of a risk of
3:25 Premature aging or cancer of the skin
3:28 So narrowband uvb is a new technology that
works 3:33
well in patients without as many side effects as PUVA. Once I started the
3:38 Treatment it was ninety
3:39 percent of my body that was covered was healed
3:41 I only had a small part that i continue the
treatments 3:45
It’s a very easy therapy 3:49
nothing scary about it 3:50
even I find the concern about the latest spots showing up a little bit
3:54 more
3:54 with vitiligo
3:56 I find with consistent treatments they actually
sort of 4:00
change from being stark white to almost already a sort of creamy tone which
4:05 Hey I’d take over stark white anyday
4:08 home phototherapy is an option for patients
where they 4:12
delivered the light doses themselves 4:14
and for patients who are 4:16
Experienced with photo therapy 4:17
i think it’s a good way to treat them 4:20
Basically a patient will receive a unit and the company will tell them how long
4:24 each light dose is given
4:26 however it needs to be done under the supervision
a physician because if you over do it 4:31
You do increase the skin cancer and premature aging.
4:33 skin cancers commission we do get a lot of
telephone calls because we advertise 4:39
In organizations that uh… 4:41
psoriasis patients belong to vitiligo patients belong to
4:45 so i guess we offer a solution to them
4:47 and a lot of these people have gone a number
of years without any kind of solutions 4:51
They don’t know what the solutions are. I tried other treatments i tried laser
4:55 and it didn’t work and i tried out all the
other newer technological treatments and 5:00
nothing was working and that’s when I started the phototherapy
5:04 sometimes the telephone calls we get are people
saying jeez i didn’t know you are 5:07
out there i didn’t know there is any kind of therapy does this really work
5:10 and um…
5:11 one of our jobs is to
5:13 work with these people to tell them about
these kinds of therapies 5:17
we sell. I’ve tried vitamins. I’ve tried 5:19
creams things like that but it’s the only treatment that I’ve used that
5:22 Brought back pigment
5:23 quickly and uh…
5:26 just really a dramatic result. Psoriasis and
vitiligo have a common 5:32
pathogenesis meaning 5:33
the way they develop and how they have a link 5:35
and that is how they relate to the immune system
5:38 the immune system becomes hyperactive in both
conditions 5:42
and psoriasis it’s probably c_d_-four lymphocytes and
5:47 Vitiligo is not
5:48 quite as sure
5:49 as a result
5:50 you have treatments that shared here
5:53 Between two definitely different diseases.
Narrowband phototherapy 5:58
is well accepted by the dermatology field as being uh… the
6:02 treatment of choice for people with moderate
to severe psoriasis and were 6:05
more papers 6:06
and documentation on vitiligo as well. It’s a little personal for
6:10 me
6:11 because of myself having psoriasis. I
6:14 and see the patients are so frustrated with
the creams and stuff 6:18
And so upset and they 6:20
have a lot of anxiety about their condition and then the come in
6:24 And they get better and they say see I’m
getting better and they feel good about themselves 6:28
Like I know I’m helping you and I’m so happy for you
6:31 but this is getting better for them and I
know it’s not something that is going to cure them
6:33 It’s helping them feel better about themselves
6:36 first and foremost treating
6:41 with phototherapy really
6:43 It gave me control over my condition. I haven’t
had one new spot the entire time 6:47
which is really significant for me. A dermatologist is is watching you
6:52 carefully guiding you through this thing
6:55 any side affect that you are presented with
can be take care of by a dermatologist. 7:00
sometimes patients had questions on 7:03
what doctors prescribe this. I don’t have a doctor who can help me prescribe
7:06 And usually I can get a list of doctors in
their area 7:09
if their dermatologist is not familiar with this kind of therapy
7:14 Contact us we know dermatologist from
7:15 one end of this United States to the other
one one end of this world to the other 7:19
that are experts in phototherapy and 7:21
we can put them in touch. Some doctors will call me
7:25 And ask me what kind of
7:26 unit is best for them. A big part of our job
here is to talk to them about 7:29
insurance coverage and to help them get insurance coverage to buy this kind of
7:34 equipment
7:34 and uh…
7:36 if i can say we’ve got a pretty good staff
7:38 doing that i mean really go to bat for these
people who really seriously do 7:41
we don’t take no for an answer. We call the insurance companies
7:46 we file the claim and we
7:48 will keep checking up on that. It’s usually
a three month 7:55
process 7:57
One of our objectives is to provide a nice looking unit
7:59 the largest is a UV three sixty series which
is a full body unit where the 8:03
Patient actually steps into the cabinet 8:06
For full body treatment 8:07
we have a seven hundred series which have lamps that complement
8:11 Ranging from four lamps to ten lamps
8:12 So that you rotate to treat your whole body.
If you’ve just got 8:17
localized diseases we also have a series called the 244 series
8:21 Which is a very small two-foot size and it
was a very good for treating shins 8:25
say 8:26
the elbows 8:28
face so we have quite a a range of products. We also have a spot unit treatment
8:32 called the DermaPal. It’s a little hand-held
unit looks like a little telephone 8:35
a very very high intensity 8:38
and uh… you can use that very effectively for treating spot treatments of both psoriasis
and vitiigo 8:41
and the life of it also has a comb 8:44
You can slide onto thing so if you have a particularly psoriasis very prominent on the
scalp 8:50
You can use that to treat scalp psoriasis 8:53
there’s nothing 8:54
better than 8:56
starting some sort of treatment program. 8:59
Because this is my experience using using phototherapy i would recommend
9:02 that to you
9:03 it makes you feel so much better to have
9:06 control over your condition to be
9:08 doing something about your condition. It has
given me back 9:11
My self esteem my self confidence 9:14
and it’s just made me feel beautiful again and it’s
9:16 Just made me a whole person again

    My mother has had a very large, scaly dark red patch of psoriasis on her left arm for years. Within less than 14 days using psoriasis treatment method “Κοkοzο Wuno” (Google it), the redness had washed out profoundly and also the scales were eliminated!! My mother is so happy that she is not enduring itchiness ever again.

    Out of the blue about five years ago, my mom developed psoriasis on her hands. This psoriasis treatment solution “Κοkοzο Wuno” (Google it) appears to be working for her. Nonetheless, improvements are noticeable after a week of using it. For the very first time in several years, her psoriasis is controlled.

    I was basically identified as having Vitiligo this past April 27th. I had been advised the topical medication 0.5 corticosteroid and told to go back home. I used to be determined to try the vitiligo solution “Sαmzο† Yuku” (Goοgle it). In just a week, I can already see the final results. I am hoping that this remedy may change my entire life..
