Psoriasis, vitiligo and atopic dermatitis, among other skin diseases, often require long treatment periods with medications that often cause side effects. Phototherapy can be an excellent alternative for such cases, and may be applied alone or in combination with other topical or oral treatments in both adults and children.
In addition to faster improvement in the patient’s condition, the treatment greatly reduces the sensation of itching caused by dermatitis.
The current Phototherapy technologies are safe, as long as they are applied by qualified professionals after an accurate diagnosis of the patient. Specifically, narrow-band UVB phototherapy is safe for adults and children, as it does not have many contraindications and the likelihood of side effects is quite low.
Sessions are extremely short, lasting from a few seconds to a maximum of a few minutes. Our professionals are qualified to diagnosis and recommend the correct treatment, and to monitor patients to guarantee maximum effectiveness and minimal occurrence of side effects.
