Topical PUVA: Topical application of Psoralen lotion & UVA exposure.

Both Psoriasis and Vitiligo can be treated and cured successfully by photo therapy or PUVA therapy. PUVA therapy also helps in improving the skin conditions by adding an extra factor and resistive power to skin.
At Dr Thaj Laser Skin-Hair clinic, we mostly apply targeted photo therapy rather than the conventional phototherapy. Targeted photo therapy targets the specified areas of Psoriasis and conducts the treatment accordingly without causing damage to neighbouring tissues. This leaves the health condition incredibly safe. davlinThis targeted approach allows the delivery of higher doses of UV light to the required places and as a result, the cumulative dose of UV light required for disease remission can be delivered in fewer treatment sessions.
Photo therapy applicable for:
- Atopic Dermatitis
- Andalopecia areata
- Seborrheic dermatitis
