This treatment uses a form of UV radiation spectrum (UVB 311 nm), which is the most effective for the treatment of psoriasis and other skin diseases. It also has the smallest number of negative long-term consequences compared to other UV tanning devices with regards to aging or skin cancer. The UV comes from small short tubes with a photoluminescence layer, which emit the desired wavelength. These are placed in a comb, to allow a comfortable and effective application of the UV onto scalp of the head, which is normally hard to treat, since with normal UV treatments the hair blocks the light.
Duration of treatment: 4 -10 minutes
Doctor's prescription: required Where is it available?
