Narrow Band UVB Light
UVB Narrowband Lamp Technology
UVB narrow band lamp technology comprises a subset of the UVB wideband, or broadband, spectrum centered at roughly 311 nm. This is less than 1% of total range of wavelengths from sunlight. Skin is most sensitive to erythemic response, (sun burning) at 297 nm, so narrow band phototherapy nearly eliminates this problem as shown in the chart below. Since wavelength is shorter, exposure time can be increased. The result is
powerful targeted treatment. < learn more >
Narrow Band lamp technology is available for nearly all home phototherapy products from National Biological, including the compact 2’ and full-sized 6’
Panosol II® light panels, the full-body folding
Foldalite III®, the hand-held
Dermalight® 80 , and the
- Psoriasis - Research shows that Narrow Band UVB has a therapeutic advantage over traditional Broad Band UVB, providing faster clearing, less sun burning, and more complete disease resolution.
- Vitiligo - Today UVB Narrow Band technology is proving to be very useful in the treatment of Vitiligo. It is replacing traditional PUVA phototherapy treatment. UVB Narrow Band requires no photo-sensitizing agents.
