Phototherapy, also known as heliotherapy—is based on contact to daylight or to definite wavelengths of light by use of polychromatic polarized light, lasers, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps, light-emitting diodes, or very bright, full-spectrum light. The light is dispensed for a stipulated amount of time and, in some cases, at a particular time of day. Phototherapy is a process which uses light to treat medical conditions. Sunlight has been recognized to be very useful for particular skin diseases and the UV part of the radiation emitted by the sun is used in phototherapy, specifically the ultraviolet B (UVB) and ultraviolet A (UVA) wavelengths. The light is administered for a specific amount of time and of a specified wavelength. There are four main types of phototherapy broadband UVB (290 nm-320nm), narrow band phototherapy (311nm-312nm) and PUVA (Psorlaen UVA) and UV A1 (340nm-400nm). UV B is the most common type of phototherapy for treatment of skin related diseases. Atopic eczema, generalized itching, psoriasis, lichenoides, dermatitis, T cell lymphomas, vitiligo PUVA (Psorlaen and UVA) is indicated for chronic plaque psoriasis and atopic eczema whenever UVB is not able to treat effectively.
