Have you been diagnosed with psoriasis? If so, then your dermatologist may recommend that you try light therapy as part of your psoriasis treatment plan. Light therapy involves the exposure of skin to specific light wavelengths for a certain amount of time. For example, Pharos EX-308 excimer laser can be used to deliver narrow band UVB wavelengths to promote fast and effective improvement with a low chance of harmful side effects.
Designed to reduce inflammatory responses, this therapy can be ideal for addressing psoriasis, as well as for use in vitiligo and acne treatment. Typically, light therapy for psoriasis involves 2 to 3 sessions per week, each with short exposure times. Patients often experience noticeable results after the first 4 to 6 treatments.
