About Psoriasis Lamps
Red, flaky, itchy skin is enough to drive you off the deep end and into outright insanity. If common psoriasis creams and ointments do not solve the problem, a psoriasis lamp may be just what you need to end your suffering. These lamps use UV phototherapy or UVB narrowband technology to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, and eczema. Often referred to as heliotherapy, the technology incorporates exposure to specific wavelengths of light using fluorescent lamps, light-emitting diodes, lasers, polychromatic polarized lights, or dichroic lamps. A psoriasis lamp targets specific areas of the skin to treat other disorders, as well, including jaundice and acne. Psoriasis is a type of inflammation caused by the immune system, and ultraviolet radiation helps reduce that inflammation by suppressing the immune system. Thanks to the vast inventory on eBay, you can find a psoriasis scalp lamp or a body lamp to help with your skin problems. The lamps use timers to help you easily monitor treatments, and each treatment only takes a few minutes, possibly even seconds for lamps with higher intensities of light.
