Initially, we were using broadband UVB, but currently, we provide narrowband UVB phototherapy (311nm). Increasing doses of UVB are given by each exposure (three to five times weekly until the skin condition is cleared, failed to respond, or it is a pre-determined maximum number of treatments). The aim is to make the skin slightly pink but not to burn it.
Ultraviolet B, which is a component of natural sunlight, is an effective treatment for psoriasis. UVB penetrates the skin and slows down the growth of affected skin cells. Treatment involves exposing the skin to an artificial UVB light source for a pre-defined timespan following a certain schedule.
* Phototherapy is very effective in treating the symptoms of psoriasis, vitiligo and other skin disorders. However, there are no cures for these conditions, so as with any treatment, flare-ups can still occur.
