What is narrowband UVB (nbUVB) phototherapy?
Narrowband phototherapy utilizes a specific wavelength (311nm) of ultraviolet-B light.
Research has shown to have the greatest anti-inflammatory properties and yet the lowest side effect profile amongst all phototherapy light sources.
By filtering out other wavelengths, the result is increased efficacy, convenience and safety.
Our narrowband UVB device emits a high intensity, precise dose of the light in gradual increments individually prescribed by your dermatologist for your specific condition.
Treatment ideally involves 3 sessions a week. Duration of each treatment starts at under 1 minute and progresses to a few minutes.
Flexible treatment schedules enable patients to present for treatment between 8am and 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday.
Your dermatologist will assess your suitability for phototherapy and personalise a treatment program for your condition and skin-type.
