Narrow-band Phototherapy

What is UVB treatment and what does it actually treat?

Narrow-band ultraviolet (UVB) therapy is a type of phototherapy that uses a specific wave-length of ultraviolet radiation to treat a multitude of skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema (atopic dermatitis), cutaneous t-cell lymphoma (CTCL)/ mycosis fungoides, and vitiligo.  The benefits of narrow-band phototherapy over broad-band phototherapy include

  • Shorter treatments that have more intensity
  • Shorter treatment cycles
  • Longer periods of remission
  • More likely to clear the skin condition.

We have two options available for UVB therapy:  a hand/foot unit or a full body unit.  Treatment is recommended for 2 to 3 times per week and will be seconds to minutes long.

What People Say

This was the absolute best doctor visit I have ever been to from start to finish.  Very polite and professional staff.  I was in and out of the appointment in less than an hour.  Amazing!

Always excellent service and everyone is so friendly and nice. And I love going to Misty, she always explains things to me and makes you fell special. That means a lot to a just slightly senior person, ha.

She was able to answer all my questions. The money seemed reasonable, which I’ll pay out of my HRA since I haven’t met my deductible this year, and they explained there would also be a lab fee for the biopsy; if they hadn’t explained that lab fee to me beforehand, I think that bill would have confused me. Good job, everybody!
