Phototherapy Patient Information
Phototherapy for Psoriasis
Psoriasis develops because the outer layers of skin cells reproduce too fast. UV Phototherapy, exposes the T-cells, causing them to die. In this way, the phototherapy psoriasis light reduces psoriasis inflammation, and slows the rate of skin cell production.
During the psoriasis phototherapy clearing phase, Phototherapy for psoriasis entails exposing affected skin to light of specific wavelength. Phototherapy treatments are 3 to 5 times a week for psoriasis with increasing exposures. Phototherapy typically clears skin in 20-25 sessions. Long-term remission occurs for 90% of psoriasis patients. UV Phototherapy treatment is generally well-tolerated in both adults and children with psoriasis.
