What is UV photo-therapy?

 

UV Phototherapy is the use of ultraviolet light, prescribed by a physician, for the treatment of skin disorders such as Vitiligo, Eczema and Psoriasis. The treatment may consist of ultraviolet in the UVA, Narrow-band UVB, or Broadband UVB wave ranges.

What is the difference between UVA, Narrow Band UVB, and Broad Band UVB?

 

UVA is the range of ultraviolet that is most commonly used in conjunction with the drug Oxsoralen in PUVA therapy.

Broadband UVB, highly effective in the treatment of psoriasis, has been used for years, often times in combination with skin preparations such as crude coal tar. UVB is about 1000 times more likely to cause sunburn than UVA and UVB is the reason that you must be careful on those hot summer days.

Narrow-band UVB is relatively new. Its ultraviolet output is concentrated in a very narrow range that many scientists believe is the most effective range for treating many skin diseases. While a number of studies have been done using Narrow Band for the treatment of psoriasis, it also shows promise as an effective modality for many other skin diseases as well such as Vitiligo and possible Eczema.
