“Inflammation is a common side effect of all aesthetic procedures, whether they be facial laser treatments, injections or surgery,” said Michael Harter, CEO and president of UVLrx. “By immediately reducing inflammation caused by an aesthetic procedure, our technology will minimize pain and accelerate healing, which in turn will lead to better results and a more satisfied post-op patient.”

“Beyond aesthetic procedures, chronic inflammation can occur due to pathogens in the bloodstream and just everyday stress,” commented Rowland Hanson, chairman of UVLrx. “Left untreated, chronic inflammation accelerates the aging process and has been linked to heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. This is why UVLrx is an essential adjunct therapy for physicians practicing both aesthetic and anti-aging medicine.”

In addition to its exhibitor booth at the Congress, UVLrx has secured an adjacent private salon for physician and distributor on-site demonstrations of its CE-marked UVLrx Station™ Model UVL1500. Moreover, UVLrx Chief Science Officer, Ryan Maloney, has been asked to speak at a special session at noon on Friday, April 1 st, about the efficacy of ultraviolet light and UVLrx technology for both anti-aging and aesthetics purposes. To ensure that Congress attendees are aware of UVLrx Therapeutics’ participation at AMWC, the company has secured inside front cover advertising, as well as a two-page promotional article, in the March/April issue of PRIME Journal, which will be distributed to all Congress attendees as well as the publication’s nearly 100,000 additional print and online subscribers.

“We look forward to sharing our technology with the global aesthetics and anti-aging community at AMWC 2016 and demonstrating, in person, how the UVLrx Treatment System will benefit all physicians practicing in this field,” added UVLrx CSO Ryan Maloney. “We are especially excited that the theme of the Congress this year is prevention, given the clinically proven ability of the wavelengths utilized by the UVLrx Station™ to immediately reduce inflammation caused by such things as pathogens in the bloodstream, stress and a wide range of aesthetic surgical procedures.”

Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) has been used for over a century to treat bacterial and viral infections and was awarded a Nobel Prize for treating lupus in 1903. Routinely used in hospitals around the world, this form of light therapy fell out of prominence in the U.S. with the advent of antibiotics in the 1950s. With the recent expansion of drug-resistant infections, blood irradiation offers significant advantages to pharmaceutical therapies. Furthermore, UVLrx’s intravenous system is superior to existing ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) in that it does not require removal of blood from the body.

The UVLrx Station™ Model UVL1500 is not available for sale in the U.S.
