The skin is the largest organ of the body, and it dynamically responds to different wavelengths of light. Many common skin conditions such as eczema, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, vitiligo, and some types of alopecia can be successfully treated or controlled with light treatments. Knowledge of the photo-biological interactions between the many types of light and skin conditions allows dermatologists to treat these conditions non-invasively, while avoiding the side effects and interactions of many traditional medications.
We have a number of phototherapy units at Kessel Dermatology, and make light treatments of all types fast, convenient, and readily accessible for all our patients. Many patients visit the office regularly and complete their treatments within less than fifteen minutes.
