Wood lamp skin examination
Use high lightness ring tube, new style electric start-up circuit, turn on power supply then light immediately; coming with anti-light lamp cover, protect machine not disturbed by the lights from the exterior, make the operation more professional and clear. The machine can test and analyse the skin conditions and various different changes on the surface of skin in time, make the beauticians to have a rapid and correct decision and opinion to maintain and treat the trouble skin, make skin smooth and bright and be rich of elasticity.
What is Wood lamp skin examination?Wood lamp examination is a diagnostic test in which the skin or hair is examined while exposed to the black light emitted by Wood lamp. Blacklight is invisible to the naked eye because it is in the ultraviolet spectrum, with a wavelength just shorter than the colour violet. The lamp glows violet in a dark environment because it also emits some light in the violet part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
What is a Wood lamp?A traditional Wood lamp is a low-output mercury arc covered by a Wood filter (barium silicate and 9% nickel oxide) and emits wavelength 320–450 nm (peak 365 nm). The lamp was invented in 1903 by a Baltimore physicist, Robert W. Wood.Modern black light sources may be specially designed BLB fluorescent lamps, mercury vapour lamps, light-emitting diodes, or incandescent lamps. Fluorescent black light tubes have a dark blue filter coating on the tube, which filters out most visible light. There are several models with varying properties.
The medical Wood lamp may include: A variety phosphors with different peak emission Magnifying lens White light Black drape to exclude light Describe a Wood lamp skin examinationExamination using Wood lamp involves the following steps. Ideally, skin to be examined should not have been recently washed or had any makeup, deodorant or moisturising creamapplied, as these can fluorescence causing a false positive result
2. Gentle facial skin cleansing may be required
The Wood lamp is turned on to warm up for about a minute.Room lights are turned off, and window shades are drawn, or black drape used to darken the surroundings completely.After waiting to adapt to the dark, the skin is examined with Wood lamp for a few seconds. The lamp is held about 10-30 cm away from the skin. The examination is painless and safe.
What is fluorescence?Fluorescence is a coloured glow seen when certain substances such as collagen and porphyrins absorb black light and emit it again at a longer wavelength in the visible spectrum. Items on the skin surface such as fabric, topical medications and soap residue can also fluoresce.What conditions are diagnosed using a Wood lamp?A Wood lamp for skin examination may reveal: Increase in pigmentation (eg, melasma, postinflammatory pigmentation) to determine whether the pigmentation is epidermal(pigmentation enhanced by Wood lamp examination) or dermal (pigmentation unchanged by Wood lamp examination). Pigmented lesions have a clear border under Wood light because the light is absorbed by increased melanin Loss of pigmentation (eg, vitiligo, ash-leaf macules in tuberous sclerosis, and hypomelanosis of Ito) to identify affected areas in light-skinned people. Hypopigmented skin has sharper borders under black light and fluoresces bright blue-white (or sometimes, yellowish green) due to accumulated biopterins. In contrast, areas of reduced blood flow are unchanged Pityriasis versicolor—a slightly scaly persistent rash on anterior chest and back caused by Malassezia yeasts. When active, the scale emits a yellowish or orange glow Malassezia folliculitis—hair follicles fluoresce bluish-white Tinea capitis—areas of scale and baldness due to fungal infection. Microsporum species fluoresce blue-green (M canis, M audouinii, M ferrugineum, M distortum); Trichophyton schoenleinii fluoresces dull blue. Fungal infection due to other organismsdoes not fluoresce Head lice and scabies Erythrasma—corynebacteria bacteria cause a pigmented rash in skin folds that fluoresces a coral-pink colour Pseudomonas in spa pool folliculitis and wound infection fluoresces green Acne fluoresces orange-red due to cutibacteria in hair follicles Porphyria causes red-pink fluorescence of the skin (porphyria cutanea tarda), or teeth (erythropoetic porphyria) Porphyrins used as the photosensitiser in photodynamic therapy Drugs on the skin surface—tetracyclines and mepacrine fluoresce after oral ingestion The evenness of application of a salicylic acid-containing chemical peel (this fluoresces green).

Biochemistry laboratory may look for signs of porphyria in red blood cells (erythropoietic protoporphyria), urine and stool (porphyria cutanea tarda) Molecular biology laboratory may use a Wood lamp to detect compounds with a fluorescent tag Aestheticians check for signs of ageing skin and other imperfections Ophthalmologists look for scratches and foreign bodies in the cornea of the eye Veterinary surgeons use the Wood lamp when examining pets for bacterial, fungal or parasitic infection Law enforcement officers examine crime scenes and clothing for semen and urine Pet or rodent urine/faeces is easily detected using a Wood lamp Metal fatigue can be evaluated using a fluorescent fluid and Wood lamp examination Nightclubs use a Wood lamp to check fluorescent re-entry stamps Immigration officers check that passports are genuine Banks check for counterfeit money Mineralogy and gemology Displaying fluorescent paint used in art and sculpture
