Saalux® UV-comb

Many skin diseases occur preferentially on certain parts of the body or are limited in their extent due to their severity. In other cases, it is primarily a matter of treating the skin changes on the parts of the body that are visible to third parties, such as the head, hands or elbows. The Saalux UV comb is designed as a handy irradiation device for this targeted UV therapy. The limited irradiation area also protects healthy skin areas from unnecessary UV radiation.

The Saalux UV comb is not only ergonomically shaped, but also particularly light, weighing only 165 g. This makes positioning the UV comb easy. This makes positioning the UV comb on the skin for the treatment period of a few minutes much more comfortable and easier.

UV-B 311nm narrow band spectrum

The Saalux UV comb emits the so-called UV-B 311nm narrowband spectrum, which uses a therapeutically particularly effective spectral range of sunlight and excludes other rather harmful spectral ranges. The positive benefit/risk profile of the UV-B 311nm narrowband spectrum has been proven in countless studies over the last 30 years for the treatment of psoriasis, vitiligo and atopic dermatitis alike.

Comb attachement

The name UV comb comes from the two rows of comb tines, which are useful in the treatment of the scalp and the parting of the hair, so that the UV radiation reaches the scalp. A no less important function of the comb tines are that of a spacer to the skin to ensure a consistent irradiance.

A special feature of the Saalux UV comb is the transparent, removable comb attachment, which protects the UV emitter from contamination over a large area and is easy to clean.

Operation of the Saalux UV comb

A treatment with the Saalux UV comb usually includes 20 to 30 individual sessions, which are repeated every 2 days. Before a therapy session, the healthy skin areas and eyes must be provided with appropriate UV protection. During the application, the switched-on UV comb lies with the comb row on the skin or is guided in sections over a larger area.

The duration of irradiation depends on the size of the treatment area as well as on the individual UV sensitivity. Based on the individual skin type, a treatment series is started with a short treatment duration. This is then increased from session to session until the erythema threshold (light sunburn) is reached. The corresponding starting values and rates of increase are listed in the instructions for use as time and dose tables for each skin type.

Home use

The Saalux UV comb is a mobile small device, which is easy to use in the home environment compared to the large devices located in clinics and practices. In addition, the Saalux UV comb is a designated and tested home therapy device with simple, safe operation and instructions for use that are self-explanatory for the patient. Over a series of 20 to 30 therapy sessions, a patient can save a lot of time and effort by using it at home.

Scope of delivery

The scope of delivery of the Saalux UV comb includes a short-time timer for controlling the therapy duration. The short-time timer is characterized by particularly large digits and an acoustic signal tone. UV protective goggles for the patient are also included as an accessory. They absorb UV radiation but allow visible light to pass through. In addition to the dose and time tables, the comprehensive instructions for use also include a patient diary for logging the sessions.

Large UV-protective goggles

As optional accessory for professional staff and wearer of glasses.
