Nowadays, UVA, UVB and VUV are the three main types of UV light that are generally used for certain skin disorders, such as psoriasis, acne, eczema, vitiligo, etc.
UVA can help with some skin conditions by combining with a drug called psoralen, which is applied or taken orally to sensitize the skin. Therefore, PUVA (psoralen and ultraviolet A) treatment may make you feel sick for a few hours after you take psoralen and you may have itchy skin for a few days after the treatment. What’s more, you may experience sunburn more easily than usual and suffer from permanent eye damage like cataracts.
There are also some UVB light therapy devices on the market that can help with some skin conditions. The ultraviolet radiation from these UVB light devices may damage the skin, cause premature aging and increase the risk of skin cancer.
Many users report side effects associated with UVA and UVB. Fortunately, there are no known side effects and complications of VUV light therapy.
UVA and UVB may penetrate the dead skin cell layers to damage the DNA of normal skin cells, and eventually form a mass of cancerous cells. However, the dead skin on most of the human body can absorb VUV radiation almost completely. With the protection of dead skin cell layers, VUV light will not harm normal skin cells.
VUV can create proper nitric oxide within your tissue, which is considered to safely clear bacterial, viral, fungal, parasitic infections and cancer cells. The therapeutic effects of nitric oxide depend on the amounts generated and the local concentrations achieved. Proper amounts of nitric oxide can treat skin disorders safely and effectively. Excessive nitric oxide may damage healthy skin cells. VUV, proven to create proper nitric oxide, is the most suitable and effective UV light therapy for skin disorders.
Additionally, VUV light can induce the production of ozone in cells. Healthy cells thrive on oxygen and can’t live without it. However, disease-causing nasties like bacteria, fungi, parasites and microbes are anaerobic, and die in the presence of oxygen. Ozone is a powerful, activated form of oxygen. The ozone produced by VUV light can kill anaerobic organisms, without affecting the healthy cells.
In short, VUV light used by Flash may be safer and more suitable for the treatment of skin disorders than other popular UV light therapy.
