Psoria‐Shield™ Launches Psoria‐Light™

Written by: developer

Psoria‐Shield™ Launches Psoria‐Light™ Psoria‐Shield™ Inc., has launched sales for its flagship medical device, the  deep UV LED targeted phototherapy device for treating psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo and other UV‐treatable skin disorders.

Recognized by the Space Foundation as a Certified Space Technology™, the Psoria‐Light™ patent‐pending innovation uses advanced deep UV LED technology originally developed for NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the U.S. military for photoelectron generation as part of the charge management system for gravitational wave measurement systems.

Psoria‐Shield™ was established in 2009 to create less toxic non‐invasive treatment options for patients suffering from UV‐treatable skin disorders. President and Founder Scot Johnson, a medical device design engineer, has been developing cutting‐edge medical devices within the Tampa Bay area for over 16 years.

Targeted UV phototherapy generally facilitates clearance of skin conditions within six to ten treatments, and up to five times faster than non‐targeted UV phototherapy treatment currently available. Targeted UV phototherapy has only a local effect on the skin, and is a less toxic treatment option than many of the biologic and systemic treatments currently being utilized to treat psoriasis, eczema and vitiligo. Psoria‐Light™ is sold to dermatologists and qualified healthcare providers.
