Narrowband UVB

If you suffer with a skin condition such as psoriasis, eczema or vitiligo you may be a great candidate for Narrowband UVB Phototherapy. This treatment has become one of the most popular types of phototherapy treatments for those who suffer from an array of skin conditions. Narrowband UVB phototherapy uses a specific wavelength of ultraviolet radiation which is nearly harmless.Narrow Band UVB

There are many perks to choosing this form of phototherapy to help clear your skin, including shorter treatment courses, higher intensity with shorter exposure time, and longer periods of remission before your condition occurs again. Many patients have even found  that their skin condition has cleared completely!

Narrowband UVB Phototherapy has been proven to help patients who suffer from other skin conditions such as pruritus, lichen planus, polymorphous light eruption, early cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and dermographism.

What Does the Narrowband UVB Procedure Entail?

This form of phototherapy can be performed on small areas of the body using a portable UVB light or on large areas of the body with light boxes for full body exposure. Your treatment will take about 1-10 minutes and the length of your sessions may increase week to week. We usually require 2-3 treatments per week over the coarse of 12-15 weeks. After your 15th week we recommend weekly maintenance. Following your therapy session we ask patients to wear UV-absorbing sunglasses for 24hrs after your treatment.

Are There Side Effects With Narrowband UVB Phototherapy?

Narrowband UVB phototherapy has been shown to be less risky than other forms of phototherapy but with more benefits. You may experience a sunburn effect which can be treated with lotions or steroids.
