This is a classic treatment using ultraviolet radiation (UV broad spectrum) which mimics solar radiation in high mountainous regions. It uses a special high pressure mercury vapour lamp which contains the entire width of the spectrum of ultraviolet radiation, UVB and UVA. It is prescribed to stop excessive segmentation of the cells of the skin which is associated with psoriasis. It is applied from a distance of 110 cm and the light is emitted from a single lamp which covers the whole body. The length of treatment session depends on the type of skin and starts at one minute. During the treatment the guest slowly rotates to ensure treatment of the entire body. It is necessary to use special protective glasses and skin spots have to be covered by zinc paste. Combining UV radiation and natural sun is prohibited, because it significantly increases the risk of burning and skin cancer.
