Phototherapy for Psoriasis

Phototherapy is used to help heal psoriasis for many patients. Phototherapy treatment uses light from the sun or more often from special light boxes to treat psoriasis for patients. Types of phototherapy include UVA, UVB, and PUVA. UVA and UVB light treatments involve specific wavelengths of light used either with medications or skin creams, lotions, or ointments. PUVA light treatment involves the use of psoralen taken in pill form or used to soak the skin before light exposure. These are the best two lotions to moisturize psoriasis.

The number of phototherapy treatments per week may be up to five depending on the patient and their doctor. The amount of time per treatment may be seconds or minutes.

Phototherapy is not effective for everyone, as is the case with every psoriasis treatment. The primary benefits of phototherapy include less need for medicine in many cases, a healthy tan, and in many cases complete avoidance of prescription drugs.
