I have done the light therapy for approximately the same amount of time on 3 different occasions when my Psoriasis was particularly bad. Each time it cleared the lesions nearly 100%.

I can confirm it did help me 7 weeks of treatment two time a week but still got a big patch on my leg I shouldn't say this but it I get the light treatment again I will be going to the sun beds after the treatment to see if that helps keep it away

Hello, Yes I tried and it didnt do anything except give me burns. Ouch. I am happy it has helped you!

Uvb light treatment should be given in short bursts over a number of week.. it shouldnt burn you. Sunbeds in salons etc wont help much as they are uva rays .. save money for uvb treatment..or you can actually buy handheld lamps off amazon and ebay for around £140 .. small price to pay

hi Caroline - I had 40 sessions in total through my private health, although I got a lovely tan :-) I found it helped a little but didn't clear it and then it come back twice as bad.
