Phototherapy UVB/PUVA

Many skin disorders can be treated with light.

Phototherapy PUVA and UVB


PUVA or photochemotherapy is a type of UV treatment consisting of taking a Psoralen (a medicine making your skin more sensitive to UV light) followed two hours later by exposing the skin to very low doses of UVA radiation.

Narrowband UVB phototherapy is a type of UV treatment where the most beneficial component of natural sunlight (with high anti-inflammatory properties) is used. It has the advantage that no psoralen needs to be taken.

Phototherapy with UVA and UVB are used for treatment of psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, vitiligo, sun allergy and other skin disorders.

A phototherapy cabin for both UVA and narrowband UVB therapy is available at our practice. This treatment usually requires 2 or 3 sessions per week during 4 to 8 weeks.

During the COVID-19 pandemic we don't use online booking.
