Ultraviolet-B (UVB) Light Treatment
Ultraviolet phototherapy is the specific use of specific wavelengths of the sun’s natural spectrum for the treatment of skin disorders. Our office uses UV-B rays which produces biological reactions in the skin to help clear skin lesions, as well as to promote vitamin D production in the skin, which is essential for good health. We do not use UV-A rays (UV-A rays have a greater risk of producing side effects).
Narrowband UVB Phototherpy Can Treat:
- Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
