Our clinic gets results with UVB
We have had amazing results with the Pharos laser and narrowband UVB with patients with psoriasis and vitiligo. Dermatology of Seattle has created an entire department dedicated just to UVB. Patients are seeing results in as little as one month and even faster when using both narrowband UVB and Pharos together. Please contact the office to schedule your consultation to see if this treatment is right for you. We are happy to contact your insurance to verify coverage prior to beginning treatment, just ask us.
Benefits of Narrow Band Phototherapy
Eliminating UV in wavelengths below 311 nm permits higher intensities and longer exposure times, so our patients can get the maximum benefit from UVB phototherapy. This increased effectiveness allows us more aggressive treatments, resulting in a shorter course of treatment.
