Narrow Band UVB Home Phototherapy for Psoriasis
We encounter UVB every day when exposing our skin to the sun, without even knowing that it has a particularly good influence on our health. It is now a well-known fact that UVB literally cures psoriasis, retarding the diseased cells tanks to its penetrative capabilities. Modern psoriasis treatment widely uses UVB lamps with great success. If you ask “would a person who owns a UVB lamp psoriasis buy another device?” the answer is “no”.
What you most probably didn’t know is that there are two kinds of UVB treatment – broadband and narrowband. UVB narrowband psoriasis treatment is considered more effective because it practically cures faster.
There’s no secret at all – experiments have shown that broadband UVB works as well, but nothing beats 311 Nm light bulbs in terms of skin disease treatment.
Here’s the whole list of advantages:
- Faster than any other treatment
- Less energy- and time-consuming
- More effective and safer than other devices
As you can see, UVB lamp psoriasis treatment is the best choice for people who value their time and like to save money. With this device, you can cure skin disease yourself at home.
Keep in mind, though, that you can only achieve the highest efficiency of treatment by strictly following the schedule.
General facts on UVB sun lamp psoriasis treatment
The epidermis of the human skin has the ability to absorb light of certain wavelengths. This peculiarity is found to be extremely useful when treating skin disease. A newer type of UVB, called narrowband UVB, emits the part of the ultraviolet light spectrum band that is most helpful for psoriasis.The UVB psoriasis lamp uses that feature and affects the skin on the cellular level. It emits light from the very part of ultraviolet spectrum that stops the diseased cells growth.
Broadband UVB treatment has been cancelled in most clinics because narrowband is a lot more effective. It is also easy to use, so anyone can cure psoriasis at home with just one device.
The process is usually divided into two phases:
- Patients need a few consecutive daily treatments with narrowband UVB to bring their skin into the desires state.
- Only weekly treatment is required then, to maintain the treatment effect and ensure that the disease doesn’t come back.
To reach the fullest effect, you should start with a week of minimum exposure to the light – no more than 30 seconds for each affected area per day. After reviewing the results, you can gradually increase this time up to one minute. Your main goal should be in finding the minimum exposure time for the best effect – it’s a peculiarity of UVB narrowband psoriasis treatment.
- Only the affected skin areas must be exposed to UVB lamp light
- One must not undergo more than 2 weeks of treatment without breaks
