Advice & Tips: The main thing you need is patience, I have a daily shower with the dermasun fitted to the back wall. It is a treatment I look forward to using every day, how easy is it to turn the dermasun and the shower?? Benefit is that my skin is repairing slowly, but a big marked difference. Looking in the mirror I am now looking at patches that have lost all their fire and now not needing steroidal creams. The dosage is daily or as often as you like.People have commented about how good my skin looks as I have never hidden the fact I have eczema. Now we look forward to letting my 17 yr old daughter use this treatment. Forgot to add my skin is also very smooth, can't remember the last time my skin was like that. The unit cost us £3400 as we went for the deluxe which gives you a tan over a couple of months.
