This is a step-by-step manual of protocols for ultraviolet light therapy in the dermatologist's office. It provides complete technical information for UVB, PUVA, outpatient daycare (Goeckerman and Ingram), RePUVA, UVA/UVB combination, hand and foot therapy, scalp treatments, and hydrotherapy. It also contains examples of patient education handouts, consent forms, laboratory flow sheets, forms for insurance companies, tools for the quantitative measurement of psoriasis severity, and other useful information sheets. An especially valuable set of appendices provide information about skin type, histopathologic evolution of the psoriatic lesion, differential diagnosis, agents that may cause photosensitivity, equipment, letters for home UVB unit, and the use of ultraviolet light treatment in other conditions. Includes bibliographic references and index.
Photobiology integrates a wide variety of scientific disciplines. As more people become aware of the many ways light interacts with chemical and biological systems, the need for a concise treatment of photobiology has become more critical. Kohen "et al." Have written just such a book, intended both as a textbook and as a reference. The authors begin by providing a brief description of the nature of light, how it affects matter, and the means and methods of measuring it. A major section of the book is devoted to how light influences living systems, including discussions of photosynthesis, bioluminescence, regulatory mechanisms, and visual transduction of light. The last half of the book is devoted to the biomedical aspects of light, including photoimmunology, photoallergic reactions and other forms of light sensitivity, the optical properties of skin, and various ways that light can be used in therapy treatments. Useful to photobiologists as a comprehensive overview, this book should also appeal to biomedical researchers and advanced students of photobiology.
A true story of two women in midlife, their joys, their sorrows, their sagging skin--.and, most important Their Attitude: Life is too short to be miserable! It's a sweltering summer but no vacation for Sal & Deb: pregnant daughters, weddings (in that order), elderly parents, teenagers, grandchildren--and that's the boring part! Fall emerges, the season where we reap what we have sown: Deb, overwhelmed with tending aging parents, collapses into clinical depression. Armed with her own previous experience with depression/anxiety, Sal lights a candle for her friend and they begin an inspiring journey together out of the darkness. How do they do it? Drugs? Therapy? Prayer? Humor? ABSOLUTELY!!! Take notes!!! Time to celebrate the holidays! The dialogue is uplifting: breast biopsies are treated with wine and chocolate chip cookies; a true tale of a serial killer bird entertains them while awaiting test results and tiny granddaughters to be born. Finally, the fattening feasts are over, but life doesn't slow down. Enjoy the ride as Sal & Deb careen on hormonal roller coasters through midlife (sometimes accompanied by their raging counterparts: adolescent children). It's a wild ride, with a soft landing. Hop on and buckle up!
Dpl therapy is proven to reduce wrinkle and fines lines by stimulating fibroblasts which produce collagen and elastin. it’s safe, fast, affordable. as you age, collagen and elastins decline causing the appearance of wrinkles, creases, folds and fine lines. this natural breakdown of collagens is accelerated by sun exposure, pollution, smoke and nutrition causing even more dramatic skin damage. the latest technological breakthrough in cosmetic science: led light therapy clinical studies have shown that skin cells grow 150-200 percent faster when exposed to certain led light wavelengths, delivering powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue. the energy delivered by dpl therapy treatments enhances cellular metabolism, accelerating the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulating the production of collagen and elastins with no pain or downtime! tests have shown that both visible red and infrared light affect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level. the dpl therapy unit combines both light wavelengths creating a highly-effective method of assisting in the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. skin layers, because of their high blood and water content, absorb light very readily and can deliver energy to stimulate a response for the body to heal itself. within weeks, you can see the benefits of healthy regenerated skin with reduced fine lines, improved skin tones and smooth skin texture. all natural, non-invasive and no downtime.
