About the illuvinate™ System

The FDA-cleared illuvinate System is an innovative treatment
designed to provide lasting relief from psoriasis symptoms. Inspired by
the Goeckerman Regimen, a 100-year-old proven therapy that results in
long periods of remission lasting over a year.1 However this
treatment is only available at a handful of specialized centers and
often requires multiple day-long clinic visits over a period of weeks,
creating barriers to widespread adoption. Luma Therapeutics has
redesigned the key elements of the Goeckerman Regimen to make it
available to patients in their own home.

Illuvinate has been demonstrated to reduce local inflammation, rehydrate
the skin and restore normal skin cells. The system includes patented
hydrating technology, a narrowband UV LED light system, and a
proprietary app-based dosing algorithm. The therapy is applied for just
minutes each day over a six-week period from the comfort and convenience
of home. The system can now be prescribed either by a dermatologist or
via Luma’s telehealth provider, HealthLens.
