Additional topical or oral medicines are not required for the efficiency of UVB radiation.
The diseases amenable to phototherapy with UVB are however chronic and continuous but ultralight phototherapy may be needed to maintain remissions.
For this treatment you simply expose yourself to Narrow Band 911 Nm UVB rays for a relatively short time on a periodic basis either daily in some cases or 2-7 times a week as prescribed by your doctor.
Benefits are usually perceptible in 2-3 weeks.
Narrow Band 311 Nm UVB phototherapy has consistently achieved over 90% repigmentation within a year for most patients.
For an effective cure, start with very short exposure periods of 30 seconds maximum per area per day during up to 7 days (as prescribed by your doctor), then, according to the results, keep or increase gradually the exposure time up to 60 seconds maximum per area per day: goal is to find the minimum daily exposure time needed to solve the skin disease.
As already stressed: treatment by short exposures on a regular basis give the best results.
The treatment should never exceed 2 weeks uninterrupted, then stop during 1 week and start again this cycle.
Treat only the areas impacted by Vitiligo.
