UV Phototherapy is a Safe, Effective, and Economical Psoriasis Treatment
How UV Phototherapy works
Phototherapy works by exposing the skin to specific segments of UV light. Treatments are quick and painless. A doctor prescribes the
form of ultraviolet light such as UVA, UVB, or
narrowband UVB light, as well as length of exposure time, number of sessions, and frequency of sessions. Compared to topical treatments or ointments, UV phototherapy is effective treatment for psoriasis, vitiligo, and other skin disease, with home treatments clearing in 24 to 36 sessions.< learn more >
UV Phototherapy is a Safe Psoriasis Treatment
UV light therapy has been studied for over 100 years. The
phototherapy safety record has been proven in children and for long-term use.
Conversely, research into safety of oral, IV or IM medications is limited and a
Clinic study suggests a link between new biologic treatments and cancer. Side effects are minimal, though you do need to follow your doctor’s prescription to avoid sunburn. Our phototherapy units are equipped with
numerous safety features including a controlled prescription timer, child-proof key lock switch and more. < learn more >
UV Phototherapy is an Effective Psoriasis Treatment

Success rates and remission rates are higher than for any oral medication or biologic on the market. < learn more >
UV Phototherapy is an Economical Treatment
Many skin conditions are chronic, genetic diseases. Research
studies have shown that home phototherapy is often less costly
than either long-term medication or regular office visits for treatments. < learn more >
