Light Therapy for Psoriasis
Support and advice about light therapy for psoriasis.
I had both types of light treatment on my skin, TLO1 and TLO2. It was amazing my skin completely cleared and I had no spots, no scabs or anything for weeks but, unfortunately because it's so intense that you are only allowed 200 treatments in your life time 😣😣. Really worth it if your hospital offers you the treatment. 👌
UVB Light has been, out of all of the treatments/trials/tribulations of psoriasis, the best thing that has happened for my skin. It's targeted treatments of blue light that only take 2-3 minutes each and after a few weeks you are virtually clear (well at least for me). I used to go to my gp for treatments but I ended up buying a small hand wand for home and I maintain my clear pretty well that way. I am looking for a new system now but don't know what the "newest" or best out there is--hand wand is great I just want something more!
Hi I had the light treatment and it worked and completely cleared up. I was also warned that it can come back even worse. I had my light treatment over three years ago now and although my P has come back it is nowhere near as bad as it was before the light treatment.... so hold on in there ... there is hope

Light therapy is a well-known treatment option for psoriasis. Treating your psoriasis with light therapy or phototherapy involves exposing the skin to ultraviolet light on a regular basis under medical supervision. The key to success with light therapy is consistency: it reduces inflammation and slows the rate of skin cell production. What is your experience with light therapy for psoriasis?
