Ultra Violet Phototherapy
Philips lamps for Phototherapy treatment. More than 400 independent clinical studies worldwide indicate that the Philips UVB Narrowband lamps are safer and more effective than any other lamps in their class. Our lamps emit only a very narrow wavelength band which peaks at 311 nm: the most effective waveband for the treatment of psoriasis. This results in much shorter exposure times and less potential side effects as itching and reddening of the skin. All of this makes them ideal for phototherapy treatment of diseases such as psoriasis, parapsoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and mycosis fungoides.
