How does phototherapy work for specific skin conditions?

Melanocyte Growth

Ultraviolet light stimulates melanocyte activity.

Melanocyte Migration

Ultraviolet light encourages melanocytes to move to depigmented areas.

Melanin Production

Ultraviolet light activates melanogenesis.

Immune Regulation

Ultraviolet light moderates immune response helping with vitiligo's autoimmune aspect.

How It Works

DNA Synthesis Inhibition

Ultraviolet light slows skin cell growth by altering cell DNA.

Reduces Inflammation

Ultraviolet light decreases specific cytokines and modifies T cell activity.

Apoptosis Induction

Ultraviolet light prompts cell death in abnormal psoriasis cells without causing necrosis.

Immunomodulation

Ultraviolet light reduces the overactive immune response associated with psoriasis.

Skin Barrier Restoration

Ultraviolet light can improve skin barrier function, which is often compromised in eczema.

Reduces Inflammation

Ultraviolet light helps reduce eczema's characteristic skin inflammation.

Antipruritic Action

Ultraviolet light therapy can relieve itching associated with eczema.

Immunomodulation

Ultraviolet light modulates the immune system to decrease the intensity of the overactive response seen in eczema.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition characterized by the rapid buildup of skin cells, leading to scaling on the skin's surface. These scales often appear as thick, silvery patches and can be itchy and painful. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder, meaning the immune system attacks healthy skin cells by mistake. The exact cause is unknown, but it is believed to involve genetic and environmental factors.

Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a condition where patches of skin lose their pigment. This occurs because the cells that produce skin color, called melanocytes, are destroyed or stop functioning. The exact cause of vitiligo is unknown, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, autoimmune, and environmental factors.

Eczema

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a condition that causes the skin to become inflamed, itchy, red, and cracked. It is a chronic, relapsing disorder often associated with allergies and a family history of similar conditions. The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors that affect the skin's barrier and immune response.

Targeted Phototherapy

What is it?

Targeted phototherapy, also known as light therapy, is a medical treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to manage and treat various health conditions. This non-invasive therapy has been proven effective for a range of dermatological issues such as vitiligo, psoriasis and eczema.

How does it work?

Targeted phototherapy works by exposing the skin to specific types of light. The light emitted during the therapy is typically in the ultraviolet (UV) area of the spectrum. The light penetrates the skin and causes biological changes at the cellular level. These changes can lead to the reduction of inflammation, control of cell growth and other beneficial changes.
