What Is Phototherapy?
Phototherapy, also known as light therapy, is a medical treatment that involves exposure to specific wavelengths of light to treat various medical conditions. Phototherapy is often used as a treatment for skin disorders because it helps to slow down the growth of skin cells, which can be useful in treating conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo. During phototherapy treatment, you are exposed to a special type of light that mimics natural sunlight, including ultraviolet A (UVA), ultraviolet B (UVB), and narrowband UVB. The specific type of light used depends on the condition treated and will help to reduce inflammation, promote healing, and improve the appearance of the skin.
