Narrowband UVB phototherapy is among the best treatment options for vitiligo patches on many commonly affected body areas, including the face, chest, arms and legs. Exposing vitiligo to therapeutic light rays, either via laser or specialized lamps, stimulates the production of new pigment.
Some patients experience improvement in their vitiligo with phototherapy alone. Others require combination treatment with topical medication. UV treatment for vitiligo can be safely used with topical medications for optimal improvement.
UV treatment for vitiligo requires multiple sessions (usually around 5-10 minutes each), so we’ve developed every aspect of our practice to allow for a convenient and highly supportive experience for our patients. All treatments are administered in a clinical setting by trained nurses to ensure safety and dosing accuracy. Through phototherapy, we have improved the quality of life for thousands of people living with vitiligo.
