Phototherapy

Phototherapy, also called light therapy, means treatment with a special kind of light. It involves exposing the skin to ultraviolet light on a regular basis and under medical supervision. At Radix Healthcare, we use Phototherapy to treat eczema, reduce itching, calm inflammation, increase vitamin D production and to ramp up bacteria-fighting systems in the skin. The key to success with light therapy is consistency. We are consistent with the technology we provide to our patients. We use "narrow band" UVB which is the latest development in UV treatment of skin disorders. All treatments are nurse supervised and given in stand up cabinets surrounded by fluorescent lamps.
