IV Lamp Or Laser

IV Lamp Or Laser

Does anyone use a IV lamp or laser phototherapy at home? Has it been successful? Which one do you use? Can you please share a link
I looked into the clinics that does the laser but it’s so expensive and my insurance doesn’t cover it

Saw this post from 3 months ago but didn’t see any responses. Very interested as I recently got diagnosed

I do light therapy treatments twice a week for the past 1.5 yrs and it’s worked great ! My face was my main concern and area who he’d cleared up better than it was ! NO white patches .. but consistency is the KEY and I also used tacrolimus ointment and some new cream that was prescribed combined with them light treatments and WOW🤩

I am light so I started with 30 seconds on the softer areas and increased by 10 secs the next two days if not pink. Bony areas like my knees and hands i started at 50secs.
Just be careful and be consistent. I do the treatment every three days and have been noticing many areas of freckling after about 20 treatments.
Be patient, it takes time

Hi
I use the narrow band 311 usb lamp at home and have been getting freckled areas. The key to this treatment is consistency.

It will be ok! Just start with a few seconds at a time to test how your skin reacts. There should be slight pink but not burning. Always start slowly, you can add more time but you cannot subtract burns to your skin!😊
