Important: UVB device orders shipped within the USA require a prescription.
Dermfix Inc. needs to receive a copy (not the original) of your prescription written by a doctor, nurse, dermatologist or other qualified health professional before we can despatch your order to you within the USA.
We can accept this copy during the order process (there is a link to upload at the end of the ordering), and we do also send a link for uploads with your order confirmation. But you can alternatively directly email a copy before or after ordering to:
We can accept most popular file formats such as PDF, Word, JPG, PNG, TIFF etc but we advise keeping these below 10Mb to ensure delivery. You can even WhatsApp a photograph to us. Once received and accepted we will confirm receipt.
The prescription can be from a doctor’s pad, headed notepaper, or using our enclosed sample below. Note: We only require a copy.
There is no exact required wording required (that is up to your doctor) but ideally this should include as a minimum:
Name of the Patient
e.g. Mr. John Doe
Brief Device Details
e.g. “UVB Phototherapy Device for Home Usage” or the model name such as “Dermfix 6000B-T UVB Device for the Home”.
e.g. Home UVB Treatment for Psoriasis, Vitiligo or other skin disorder etc
Example Prescription wording on Headed Paper or Doctor’s Pad:

The Patient understands that they must read the instructions manual before using the device, and that they should undertake a skin examination at least once per year after commencing treatment.
