Dermatology: UVB Light Therapy

Light Therapy, also known as Phototherapy, can be used when simple topical treatments have failed to manage your dermatology condition.

Our Light Therapy service is Consultant-led with the therapy delivered by nurses with a special interest in Dermatology.

The effect of the UVB therapy is to reduce inflammation, which is the major cause of flare-ups, as well as reducing skin cell overproduction. The narrowband UVB avoids delivering the wavelength that is more likely to cause skin damage, making it safer.

Although it is not a long-term cure, it can relieve or even clear up your symptoms for several months at a time. Possible side effects are minimal compared with other treatments for skin conditions and may include red, dry, or itchy skin that lasts a few days, but we will take time to discuss and explain the treatment in detail with you.

We are able to treat the following conditions:

  • Acne
  • Alopecia areata
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL)
  • Eczema
  • Generalised pruritus
  • Lichen planus
  • Mycosis fungoides
  • Other forms of dermatitis including nodular prurigo and itching secondary to renal or systemic disease
  • Parapsoriasis
  • Perforating dermatosis
  • Pityriasis lichenoides
  • Pityriasis rosea
  • Polymorphous light eruption and other photodermatoses
  • Pruritis
  • Psoriasis  - plaque and guttate
  • Vitiligo
