iTAN Client Stories & Pictures by Monica B on her Skin Condition.

In October 2018, I was diagnosed with guttate psoriasis shortly after having strep throat. I felt defeated, as this was my second time having the skin condition. The last time I had it was in 2014 and it took over 6 months for the flare to settle. I was using many ointments that my dermatologist recommended, but that was all I was using to treat it. This time, I knew that 6 months would be unbearable. The skin condition was impeding every aspect of my life. I felt humiliated to leave the house unless I was covered almost completely with clothing and makeup. My confidence was at an all-time low. I tried many herbal medicines, anti-histamines, an immunosuppressant (Prednisone), and countless expensive topicals. All of these treatments caused no change in my skin and left me feeling hopeless. I began to see a new dermatologist who specializes in psoriasis. She recommended that I try to get some sun or UVB exposure. Immediately, I went to iTAN. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and empathetic. They were extremely knowledgeable about each one of their beds, knowing exactly which ones were only UVB (versus UVA). They helped me to choose the most cost-efficient way to help my skin the most effective. After only a few short sessions, my skin improved dramatically. After a few weeks, almost all of my spots had disappeared. My confidence and overall quality of life had improved dramatically. Even my friends noticed the change in my attitude and outlook. Now January, I still visit iTAN every so often to keep my psoriasis in check. I am so thankful for the staff and the way they helped to improve my life. There is absolutely nothing I would change about my experience at iTAN as they are excellent at what they do.

 

At iTAN Studios we love the benefits that the sun and UV light have tooffer. Anita Vallati, CEO and Founder, believed so strongly in these benefits she founded iTAN Studios 20 years ago. (having been diagnosed herself with a weakened immune system and low energy at a young age, Anita Vallati turned to UV beds to improve her health) iTAN is not making any medical claims, please seek the advice of a medical expert first. iTAN always recommends following tanning guidelines. iTAN Disclaimer
