Also, specifically for Vitiligo, the University of Nottingham under the auspices of the NHS performed similar trials of home based Vitiligo treatment using Hand-Held devices. As a consequence they produced a sequence of videos which show you exactly how a handheld UVB device was used to treat Vitiligo at home.
Whilst light therapy for vitiligo is one of the most popular forms of treatment, it is important to note that it cannot cure the condition. This type of vitiligo treatment at home must be performed frequently, between 2-3 times a week to maintain results, and caution must be taken as excessive use can come with some risks such as burning and an increased risk of skin cancer.
Some of the benefits of treating vitiligo with light therapy include:
- Convenience – save time and money by treating your vitiligo at home, no need to travel to appointments.
- Safe – UVB treatment for vitiligo is widely considered to be amongst the safest and most effective ways of reducing symptoms.
- Investment – our range of UV lamps for vitiligo vary from handheld to full body so that you can find a solution, no matter what your budget. They are each built to last for many years, and so make a great investment for long-term treatment.
