Narrowband UVB

How Does Narrowband UVB Work?

Narrowband UVB is a form of phototherapy widely used to treat skin diseases. It offers a great alternative to other UVB conditions, as it uses shorter exposure times with higher intensity, resulting in a shorter course of treatment. It is also more likely to clear skin conditions. It is thought that narrowband UVB phototherapy results in longer periods of remission before recurrence of a condition. Narrowband UVB is applied directly to the skin using specialized light bulbs and is a pain-free procedure that requires no recovery time.

Conditions Treated by Narrowband UVB

Narrowband UVB is primarily used in the treatment of vitiligo and psoriasis. It is a preferred treatment for many medical professionals because it can be safely used with children and pregnant women. If you are a patient with vitiligo or psoriasis, and you are interested in exploring your options with narrowband UVB, reach out to your medical professional or dermatologist today to discuss.
