  • Photo-therapy

     

    Treatment for certain skin conditions using ultra-violet radiation. This can involve UVA, UVB, shorter wavelengths, or both. A combination of UVA and an oral psoralene (a photo-sensitizing agent - increases sensitivity to UV) is known as PUVA therapy. PUVA therapy is an effective treatment for psoriasis and some other skin conditions. Photo-therapy may be indicated for atopic dermatitis in older children, adolescents and adults who have not been improved by more common treatments. UVB is most commonly used, or a combination of UVA and UVB. Photo-therapy is generally well tolerated but must be carefully supervised. All kinds of photo-therapy are medical treatments that require special equipment and are carried out by dermatologists. UV treatments used for esthetic results (such as sunbeds) are not medical and are not recommended. Exposure to UV increases the later risk of skin cancer, which is why it should only be carried out under medical control.
