Does UV Light Treatment Help Psoriasis – A Psoriasis 
Phototherapy Guide 
UV light treatment has been helping people get rid of their psoriasis for 
a very long time. Sunlight is the original psoriasis treatment and is still 
one of the most effective ways to treat this autoimmune disease. 
What is UV Light Treatment for Psoriasis? 
UV light treatment (also known as phototherapy) is done by simply 
exposing the part of your skin affected by psoriasis to ultraviolet light. 
The process is done over and over until the psoriasis clears up. 
UV light treatment has actually been shown to be very effective in 
treating a wide range of inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and 
vitiligo, on top of psoriasis. 
Phototherapy is the treatment that many dermatologists prefer over 
other methods. Despite this fact, it still isn’t widely used because home 
UV light treatment can be expensive and sometimes isn’t understood by 
patients.

How Does UV Light Treatment Get Rid of Psoriasis? 
Psoriasis is caused by an abnormal reaction between immune cells and 
normal skin cells. Applying UV light to the area can kill those immune 
cells or disrupt the abnormal interaction between immune cells and 
skin cells. 
By disrupting the abnormal interaction between the cells, UV light 
treatment reverses the inflammation of the area and allows for normal 
healing. 
Where is UV Light Treatment Done? 
In the past, UV light treatment has normally been done in a doctor’s 
office and usually involved stand-up, full body length lamps to treat the 
area. This has the side effect of exposing the entire body to UV light 
instead of just the area that you need to target and it doesn’t on areas 
that are covered, like psoriasis on the scalp.

Today’s UV light treatment is moving from the doctor’s office to the 
home. This allows patients to treat themselves in privacy, makes it less 
expensive because they don’t have to pay for a doctor’s visit every time 
they go for treatment, and allows them to fit it into their already busy 
schedules. 
Home treatment is also great for anyone with mobility issues or 
transportation problems.

Types of UV Light Treatment 
UV light treatment comes in three forms with Narrow Band Ultraviolet 
B Light (NB-UVB) being the most common these days. NB-UVB systems 
try to produce a narrow band of light only in the ranges that are 
effective in treating psoriasis. 
NB-UVB is also preferred because it causes side effects in fewer people, 
is easier to use, and has a wider range of uses in treating skin 
conditions. 
How Effective is UV Light Treatment? 
UV light treatment has been very effective in a wide range of patients. 
Studies show that 60-75% of people that try phototherapy achieve at 
least a 75% improvement in around 20 sessions! This success rate has 
led to quite a few hand held NB-UVB units being made for home use. 
These handheld units are great for treating scalp psoriasis as well as 
other areas of the body.

Excimer laser treatment is another light therapy that is showing a lot of 
promise. It’s basically a high energy NB-UVB laser that can be very 
effective in treating areas with heavy plaques. 
Since these areas need more light to effectively treat than other areas 
the laser is able to use more energy in these areas to get rid of 
psoriasis. The downside is that it isn’t very effective over large areas of 
the body. 
Remission from laser treatment is generally longer than with NB-UVB 
treatment but cannot be done at home.

Can You Use Tanning Beds for Psoriasis Treatment? 
Tanning beds often produce carcinogenic light and the power and 
frequency of commercial tanning beds vary wildly. If you want to try UV 
light therapy ​it is suggested that you only use a device designed for the 
task​ and only after consulting a physician. 
Does Normal Sunlight Help? 
Regular sunlight has been used for centuries to treat psoriasis and 
other skin conditions. Some people suggest using a sunblock on 
unaffected areas then covering the affected areas about 10 or 15 
minutes after you’ve been in the sun. 

http://psoriasiszap.com 

You just have to be careful since sunburn can actually have the opposite 
effect on psoriasis and actually make it worse. Short exposure times are 
key. 
Make sure you talk to your doctor before you decide to try sun 
exposure just to make sure it’s right for you. 
Conclusion 
UV light treatment for psoriasis is quickly gaining traction as modern 
home UVB lamps become less expensive than they have been in past. In 
fact, a modern UVB lamp suitable for home treatment is actually much 
less expensive than a full course of biologics.
