Conditions Phototherapy Can Help Treat
Phototherapy is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including:
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin, forming thick patches or scales known as plaques. Phototherapy can be a highly effective treatment in reducing the redness, thickness, and scaling associated with psoriasis.
Eczema is an inflammatory condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, and dry. Phototherapy can be effective in reducing the redness, itching, and inflammation associated with eczema.
Vitiligo is a condition that causes patches of skin to lose color due to the destruction of pigment-producing cells. Phototherapy can be effective in slowing or stopping the progression of vitiligo.
Other Skin Conditions
Phototherapy may also be used to treat other skin conditions, such as cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, chronic actinic dermatitis, and atopic dermatitis.
Types of Phototherapy
There are several different types of phototherapy, including narrowband UVB, broadband UVB, and UVA. The most appropriate type of phototherapy will depend on the specific skin condition being treated and the individual’s overall health and preferences.
Phototherapy is generally safe and effective, but it is important to follow the recommended treatment plan and precautions provided by a healthcare provider to minimize the risk of side effects.
