Narrow-band UVB phototherapy is a highly effective therapy used in the treatment of Psoriasis and Vitiligo. This therapy does not involve any type of medication. As a result, patients do not need to be concerned with possible drug-to-drug interactions or medicinal side effects. In fact, this treatment may be ideal for patients who are currently taking other medications as there are no drug interactions to be concerned with.
The phototherapy unit is basically a light booth, very similar to a tanning booth, completely enclosed with light bulbs going all the way around. Patients, wearing protective eyewear, stand in the booth for anywhere between one to fifteen minutes.
