Phototherapy: Narrow Band UVB
Our state of the art TLO1 phototherapy unit is an excellent choice of treatment for many common skin conditions. We accept referrals from dermatologists both within and external to the Skin55 group. If you would like to attend for an orientation session and test dose, please contact your dermatologist for a referral. We can provide a dermatologist on-site if needed.
Treatment is administered and supervised by our specialist nurses, trained specifically in phototherapy. The light used is narrow band ultraviolet B (nbUVB).
Conditions commonly treated with UVB phototherapy:
- Itch (pruritus)
- Lichen planus
