Phototherapy involves exposing the skin to ultraviolet light on a regular basis and under medical supervision.

At Wake Forest Baptist, we provide a broad array of phototherapy treatment options for patients with skin disease, including:

  • NarrowBand ultraviolet B (NBUVB) phototherapy
  • Combination ultraviolet A/B (UVA/B) phototherapy
  • Systemic psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA)
  • Broadband ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy
  • Localized delivery of ultraviolet B (UVB)
  • Xtrac excimer laser

In conjunction with dermatology clinical studies, we also conduct many clinical trials of new agents designed to treat psoriasis and other skin disease.
