What is Phototherapy? Phototherapy   or   light   therapy,   involves   exposing   the   skin   to   ultraviolet   light   on   a   regular   basis   and   under   medical   supervision   to   treat certain medical conditions. Phototherapy   is   the   use   of   specific   wavelengths   of   light   that   have   been   shown   to   be   very   effective   in   the   treatment   of   serious   skin diseases like psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis or eczema, generalized itching, lichen planus and other photoresponsive diseases. This light occurs naturally as a component of sunlight and is called ultraviolet light (UVB, UVA) Our   medical   center   has   two   types   of   UVB   treatment,   broad   band   and   narrow   band.   The   major   difference   between   them   is   that   narrow band   UVB   light   bulbs   release   a   smaller   range   of   ultraviolet   light.   Narrow-band   UVB   is   similar   to   broad-band   UVB   in   many   ways.       It   has been   known   for   many   years   that   UVB   light      slows   abnormal   growth   of   normal   skin   cells   which   is   associated   with   psoriasis.   Narrow   band UVB   (light   energy   which   is   emitted   in   a   narrow   band   portion   of   the   UVB   light   range,   311-312   nm)   is   often   used   to   start   the   repigmenting process for vitiligo and slows growth of psoriasis lesions. Broadband   UVB   phototherapy   (290-320   nm)   is   another   form   of   phototherapy   that   is   used   less   frequently   in   treating   eczemas,   but   may be used in certain circumstances. Phototherapy appears to work in several ways: It directly reduces itch It has an anti-inflammatory effect It increases vitamin D production It appears to help increase bacteria-fighting systems in the skin Is Phototherapy Safe? The   safety   of   ultraviolet   phototherapy   has   been   proven   for   over   100   years.   Recent   studies   show   that   narrowband   UVB   lamps   (UVB-NB) have virtually NO incidence of causing skin cancer. Ultraviolet   phototherapy   in   general,   and   particularly   narrow   band   phototherapy   light   has   been   proven   for   long-term   use   and   for treatment of children with minimal side effects. Ultraviolet phototherapy has been shown to be an extremely effective treatment for controlling psoriasis and vitiligo. With   guidance   from   your   physician,   you   will   find   that   using   UV   light   will   keep   you   in   almost   complete   remission   with   minimum   side effects. Is   preferable   to   use   narrow   band   UVB   (UVB-NB)   light,   since   there   is   no   need   for   systemic   drugs   and   treatment   times   are   short.   Recent studies   show   that   the   use   of   UVB   narrow   band   light   (UVB-NB)   results   in   faster   responses   and   longer   remissions   than   with   UVB broadband (UVB-BB). Using narrowband UVB, results are similar to a PUVA treatment without the adverse effects of the drug. UVB-NB   is   generally   considered   to   be   safe   for   children   and   lactating   mothers.   Many   practitioners   have   noted   a   significant   reduction   in psoriasis   scaling   after   the   first   3   to   6   treatments   and   improvement   may   be   noted   after   6   to   9   treatments.   Repigmenting   vitiligo   is   a longer process. Do I need to do anything before or after treatment? You   do   not   need   to   do   anything   before   or   after   treatment;   however,   if   you   are   going   to   be   doing   outdoor   activities   such   as   playing   golf or   tennis,   boating,   or   just   going   to   the   beach,   please   apply   sunscreen   to   the   exposed   areas.   We   recommend   a   sunscreen   containing titanium or zinc oxide, which will help prevent sunburn and reduce your risk of skin cancer. You   may   experience   “sunburn”   like   feelings,   that   is,   you   may   see   your   skin   become   pink   or   red   in   color,   possibly   tender,   about   12   hours after   a   treatment   in   the   UVB   light   box.   This   may   not   happen   after   the   first   few   treatments   but   it   may   occur   as   we   continue   to   increase your dose in order to clear your skin.  If you are just pink and have no discomfort, we would like you to come in for your next scheduled treatment. Can phototherapy cause skin cancer? NB-UVB   light      has   not   increased   the   incidence   of   skin   cancer.   However,   because   excessive   natural   sunlight   and   tanning   bed   exposures are associated with skin cancer, we recommend prudent sun exposure with use of sunscreen and avoidance of tanning salons. What reasons might prevent you having phototherapy? If   you   are   unable   to   attend   regularly   for   treatment:   courses   of   phototherapy   are   much   more   effective   if   administered   without interruption. So, attend every appointment and avoid arranging a holiday during a phototherapy programme. If your skin condition is made worse by natural sunlight. If    you    have    xeroderma    pigmentosum,    Photosensitive    dermatoses,    such    as    lupus    erythematosus,        Pemphigus    and    bullous pemphigus If you have had skin cancer, especially melanoma If   you   are   taking   a   medicine   which   suppresses   your   immune   system   (Immunosuppressive   medication),   such   as   ciclosporin   or methotrexate. If you are taking medicines that make you more sensitive to sunlight. Previous history of intense exposure to solar light If you have reached the maximum number of light treatments in a lifetime. Albinism Previous use of arsenic or exposure to ionizing radiation Past history of cataracts or aphakia Hepatic or renal alterations Do I need to avoid anything whilst having phototherapy? Medicines   that   make   you   more   sensitive   to   ultraviolet   light.   You   should   inform   us   of   any   new   medicines   prescribed   or   purchased, including herbal preparations. Additional sun exposure or the use of sunbeds. Excessive   quantities   of   foods   such   as   celery,   carrots,   figs,   citrus   fruits,   parsnips   and   parsley;   these   can   make   you   more   sensitive   to ultraviolet light. Perfumed products. Creams, ointments and lotions other than moisturisers Short haircuts, as they may result in burning of previously covered skin. What are the potential side effects of phototherapy? The short-term side effects of phototherapy include: Redness and discomfort (sunburn). Dry and itchy skin: UVB light does tend to dry the skin but this can be easily alleviated by applying a moisturizing cream. Folliculitis   –   inflammation   of   the   hair   roots   may   occur.   This   does   not   cause   discomfort   and   usually   require   no   treatment   or interruption of the UV therapy. A sunlight-induced rash called polymorphic light eruption may develop whilst receiving ultraviolet light. Cold   sores   –   if   you   are   prone   to   these   it   is   advisable   to   cover   the   area   usually   affected   with   sun   block   when   having   ultraviolet treatment. Blisters in areas of psoriasis. Worsening of skin disease. Eye damage: This problem is completely preventable by wearing UV-opaque goggles during the treatment.
