1) THE UV-B

The use of UV-B light in phototherapy is considered as the most ancient and competent treatment in the case of Psoriasis, as the UV-B light rays easily infiltrate the skin surface to act on the abnormal skin cells, thus slowing down their irregular development. The phototherapy treatment, in this case, consist of exposing the affected skin zone to an artificial UV-B light source, usually emitted from products, for a controlled period of time at a controlled dosage. In some cases, the skin condition may worsen for a very short period of time before starting to effectively show positive results. The amount and dose of the treatment hence must be correctly decided so as to avoid overexposure of the UV-B light rays. 

The UV-B phototherapy treatment consists of either the UV-B narrowband (TL/01) or the UV-B broadband (TL/12). In this case, the UV-B narrowband (TL/01) is much easier, smaller and more convenient to use, as it eliminates the risk of overdose or any side effects as compared to the broadband. However, both UV-B light therapies have been medically tested and are in practice all over the world.

2) PUVA Therapy


The PUVA therapy consists of a combination of systemic treatment along with UV-A light therapy so as to treat skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Vitiligo, acne, amongst others. This therapy helps to bring results that cannot be seen in merely using systemic medications of light therapy alone. Nevertheless, both these methods have been found to be very competent given the right time and dosage of the treatment are maintained.

PHOTOTHERAPY for Vitiligo Treatment

Light therapy is very beneficial in the treatment of Vitiligo as it can help in the re-pigmentation of the affected skin. Despite this treatment may be a slow process until the results are clearly seen, it effectively starts with the re-pigmentation of the outer edges of the affected zone to slowly treat the whole area. Phototherapy in the treatment of Vitiligo has proven to be safe for adults and children alike for over 10 years now. It is considered to be safer as compared to the PUVA therapy which includes systemic medications. Phototherapy thus helps in the improvement of the appearance of the skin by restoring its normal complexion.
