Living “clear” is the hope of every person who battles a skin condition.
Select the phototherapy unit that’s right for you.
Home phototherapy may be a good treatment option for you if…
- Other treatments have failed.
- Phototherapy in your doctor’s office is too inconvenient or unavailable.
- You want to save the cost of office treatment sessions and co-pays.
- You are seeking a long-term, non-drug treatment option.
Clearance rates up to 80%
Phototherapy is very effective in treating psoriasis, vitiligo and other skin disorders but there are no cures for these conditions. Clinical trials using Narrowband UVB have demonstrated clearance rates up to 80% for patients with psoriasis. With any type of treatment, symptoms can reoccur. How long clearance of symptoms will last varies from person to person, but with phototherapy you can easily begin again at any time if symptoms return.
Safety should always be a priority
Phototherapy is a time tested, safe and effective option with generally mild side effects such as sunburn and premature aging of the skin, and without increased rates of skin cancer, compared to the general population. The risks of alternative therapies, particularly the biologics, however, are much more severe. They include infections, immune system suppression, increased risks of lymphoma, brain infections, tuberculosis, and many others.
