the science behind luma therapeutics
Narrow Band UVB Light
Shining UVB light on psoriasis plaques can prevent over-active immune cells from releasing growth factors to the skin, which helps reduce psoriasis. The Luma Therapeutics System emits narrowband UVB light, a type of UV light that has been proven to be an effective psoriasis treatment.
Occlusion restores the natural function of the skin by preventing water loss. The Luma Therapeutics occlusive patches increase the temperature, pH, and hydration of the skin to decrease inflammation and restore the skin cells.
The hydrogel helps to keep moisture in the skin while maximizing penetration by UVB light. Our hydrogel is engineered to maximize comfort and light access.
Starting with guidelines set by the American Academy of Dermatology, our connected light quickly customizes the amount of light delivered to each plaque through an app on your phone. Because each person is different and each plaque on your skin responds differently, our app learns over time how you respond to the light treatment.
