Phototherapy for Treatment of Pruritus, Eczema, Vitiligo, and Psoriasis

Phototherapy is an effective treatment option for various inflammatory skin conditions, including pruritus (itch), eczema, vitiligo, and psoriasis. This therapy uses controlled exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light to reduce inflammation, slow down cell turnover, and alleviate itching. At True Dermatology, we offer comprehensive phototherapy services tailored to the specific needs of each patient.

Excimer Laser for Psoriasis

The excimer laser is a specialized form of phototherapy particularly effective for treating localized psoriasis. This laser delivers targeted UVB light to affected areas, minimizing exposure to healthy skin. Excimer laser treatments are often covered by insurance for psoriasis but not for eczema and vitiligo. However, True Dermatology offers affordable self-pay options for these conditions, making treatment accessible for patients with limited affected areas.

Hand and Foot Phototherapy Device

For inflammatory diseases affecting the hands and feet, such as hand and foot eczema or psoriasis, a specialized hand and foot phototherapy device can be used. This device targets the affected areas without requiring full-body exposure, making it a convenient and efficient treatment option for localized conditions.

Full Body Phototherapy

Patients with widespread inflammatory skin conditions, such as full-body eczema or pruritus, can benefit from full-body phototherapy devices. These devices provide uniform UV light exposure to the entire body, effectively managing symptoms and improving skin health. Full-body phototherapy is especially beneficial for patients with extensive skin involvement who need comprehensive treatment.

Side Effects and Safety

Phototherapy is generally safe, with mild tanning being the most common side effect. Importantly, phototherapy does not increase the risk of skin cancer based on current literature. However, it is crucial to discuss your medical history with your provider, as certain medications and conditions can increase photosensitivity and the risk of sunburn. Phototherapy is a very safe alternative to systemic therapies, avoiding the risks of steroid atrophy, withdrawal, and other side effects associated with oral medications for inflammatory skin diseases.

Patient success stories

Evlyn O.

As a teenager, I suffered from cystic acne which left some indented acne scars behind. I often felt self-conscious about those scars and decided to make an appointment with Dr. Sung after reading all his amazing reviews. I saw Dr. Sung for a cosmetic consultation and he attentively listened to all my concerns and recommended we try using fillers to fill in the small pits.

Dr. Sung and his wonderful assistant Mary made my first time getting fillers as comfortable and painless as possible. It has only been a few days since the procedure but I can already see a huge improvement in the appearance of my scars. I can finally feel confident in my own skin! Overall, I had a great experience at True Dermatology and would definitely return for all my skin needs. Dr. Sung is a kindhearted and highly-skilled dermatologist who really cares about his patients and I would highly recommend him to all my family and friends.

I am an ER physician and a couple of weeks ago my nephew developed a skin condition that I had not seen before. I consulted Dr. Sung right away and sent him a picture. He replied in less than a minute with the diagnosis and treatment. I sent it to my nephews doctors who also didn't know what it was. They were able to confirm the diagnosis and start treatment right away.

Without Dr. Sun's quick diagnosis there would have been a delay of treatment and the infection could have spread to my nephews brain. Luckily it didn't and my nephew is back at home now laughing and playing as before. I went to medical school with Dr. Sung. He was the top student in our class all 4 years and I knew if there is anyone who would have an answer it was going to be him and he did. I knew that he is still the best and is always studying the latest research papers. This is the kind of dermatologist you want taking care of your skin.
