What is phototherapy?
Phototherapy is a prescribed treatment that uses ultraviolet (UV) light emitted from an artificial light source to treat various skin conditions such as:
- Graft versus host disease
- Granuloma annulare
- Lichen planus
- Mycosis Fungoides
- Polymorphic light eruption
Ultraviolet B (UVB) light is one of the three types of UV radiation emitted by the sun, the Skin Health Insititute has 2 narrowband UVB units, and UVB hand and foot machines available.
This treatment is not a cure but can effectively control or improve the disease to the extent that clearance may be maintained with topical medications at home or no active treatment is needed at all.
Phototherapy treatment appointments are available via referral with appointments scheduled on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Your therapy will be supported by your treating dermatologist and delivered by a specialist trained dermatology nurse.
