Narrowband Ultraviolet B (NbUVB) light is a specific frequency band of light (311 – 313 nm) which is clinically proven to help many common skin disorders such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and vitiligo. Treatment is fast and convenient, with flexible hours.
Sometimes combination therapy is used with UVB and calcipotriol, anthralin, tazarotene, tar, and/or emollients to promote faster resolution of psoriasis. Your provider may also combine oral agents, especially retinoids, methotrexate, and the newer biologic agents to your UVB regimen for severe, difficult-to-control psoriasis.
NbUVB is also effective in other conditions that we treat here, such as cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (mycosis fungoides), polymorphic light eruption (PMLE) and other photosensitivity disorders, pityriasis lichenoides, pityriasis rosea, idiopathic pruritus, and eosinophilic pustular folliculitis.
