Are you seeking a solution for repigmenting vitiligo? Welcome to Daavlin!
Vitiligo has been treated with light for decades and it continues to be one of the most effective forms of treatment available today, and Daavlin is a world-wide leader in the phototherapy industry. We’re here to help!
Phototherapy works by exposing vitiligo to a special kind of light ( Narrowband UVB ) which repigments the skin over time. Treatments are usually required two to three times a week, for a few minutes each session, over several months. Patience and consistency are critical when treating vitiligo. Many people see a 25% improvement in their condition after 3 months and 50% after 6 months. The average patient might take a year or longer to achieve full repigmentation of vitiligo.
Because of the time commitment needed to treat successfully, many patients choose to purchase a their own phototherapy unit and administer therapy in the convenience and comfort of their homes. A prescription is required for a home phototherapy device, and there are several types of devices available to meet each patient’s needs.
Spot or Scalp Treatment:
The DermaPal is small enough to discreetly carry anywhere you go and plugs into any standard electrical outlet, so you’ll never miss a treatment. The scalp is one of the most difficult areas for skin treatment as the hair hinders the direct effect of UV irradiation. The specially designed DermaPal scalp comb allows deep parting of the hair for better penetration but can also be used to treat small spots.
Larger, but Localized Treatment:
The 1 Series is a small, portable unit designed for the treatment of localized areas of the body. It can lie flat making treatment of the hands comfortable and can also be positioned vertically to treat the face or other localized areas of the body.
Full Body Treatment:
The 7 Series is a 6-foot panel with optional doors that open to maximize body coverage. Highly efficient, it offers full body treatment in a space-saving design that tucks easily into the corner of a room.
While some insurance companies cover the cost of these units, some do not and may have medical policies that exclude vitiligo treatment from being covered at all. Our experienced insurance processing team can offer advice and verify insurance benefits with no cost or obligation.
