Light Box Treatment Could Help Mend Your Skin In A Flash

What is light therapy? And could it be the secret to better skin?

Can you imagine treating skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo while getting a nice golden glow at the same time?

“We use a light box that use a narrow band UVB, which is the safest possible, and it targets inflammation of the skin. People come in, take in the rays, and leave with better skin and a glow,” says Whitney P. Bowe, M.D. of Advanced Dermatology in Briarcliff Manor and New York City.

UVB Narrow Band phototherapy has become the gold standard for the treatment of a wide variety of skin diseases,” she adds. “Some patients come to me with chronic skin conditions requiring constant use of greasy ointments every few hours that stain their clothes and affect their quality of life. Other patients come to me using strong systemic medications that suppress the immune system and expose them to numerous side effects. I’ve been able to wean many of these patients off of their topical and oral therapies after only a handful of sessions in the light box. It’s a real game-changer for people who have been suffering for years. I’m thrilled to be able to offer this technology to my patients, many of whom weren’t even aware that light therapy was an option. It requires two visits to my office per week at the beginning, but, once the skin condition is under control, most patients come to see me only once every week or every other week to maintain the benefit.”
