Hand and Foot Narrowband UVB Therapy
GK Dermatology offers Hand and Foot narrowband UVB therapy in Weymouth MA as part of our Photo Therapy services.
What is Hand and Foot Narrowband UVB Therapy?
Hand and Foot narrowband UVB therapy is an advanced phototherapy option. It is very effective in clearing a number of inflammatory conditions including, among others, hand and foot psoriasis, eczema (atopic dermatitis), and vitiligo. The narrowband bulbs emit in the 311-313 nm range which allows for the lowest effective dosage of light with the least erythema (redness).
