Get Daavlin Narrow Band Ultraviolet (nbUVB) Phototherapy With DHS

Phototherapy is a painless therapy in which affected areas of your skin are exposed to light. A common treatment plan consists of about three treatments a week over a span of several weeks. Treatment times are typically brief, usually lasting only minutes. We may suggest the use of petroleum jelly, mineral oil, or other agents to make your skin more responsive to the light. Most of our patients find Daavlin phototherapy treatments much less burdensome than applying and reapplying messy topical medications or using injectable drugs.

Daavlin is a specific narrow-band UVB phototherapy treatment for psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, and other skin conditions. It takes advantage of a very specific anti-inflammatory wavelength of light in the UVB spectrum and has been used for decades. Narrowband UVB has proven to be one of the most effective phototherapy treatment options for thousands of psoriasis patients all over the world. It’s a very popular option because it’s safe and easy. Clinical trials using Narrow Band UVB have demonstrated high clearance rates for psoriasis patients.

Why Consider Targeted Phototherapy Treatments for Your Skin Condition

Phototherapy is said to be very effective in treating the symptoms of psoriasis, vitiligo, and other skin disorders. But unfortunately, there are no cures for these conditions, so flare-ups can still occur with any treatment. How long the clearing of symptoms will last can vary from person to person, but phototherapy treatments can begin again at any time if your symptoms return. Once your skin is clear, a "maintenance" program will be recommended to you to keep you clear longer. Maintenance treatments are typically once a week but can be as infrequent as once a month.

Frequently Asked Questions About Daavlin Phototherapy Treatment

Q: What can I expect during treatments?

A: During treatment, your skin is exposed to a special type of light from a lamp called a phototherapy unit. These units come in many shapes and sizes and range from hand-held and table-top models for spot treatment of small areas, to large "walk-in" units for a full-body treatment. We will determine which type of phototherapy treatment will work best for you.

Q: What can I expect from the results?

A: The length of results varies from patient to patient, and between treatment indications. While there are some cases where psoriasis and eczema patients see much faster results (a few weeks) than vitiligo patients (a few months), the most important thing is to be consistent with your treatments and to follow your treatment plan so you get the best results possible.

Q: What can I expect for the costs of my treatment?

A: Daavlin phototherapy can be reimbursed by Medicare and most insurance companies, as it’s classified as a medical treatment for skin conditions. While the exact reimbursement costs may vary depending on your provider, you can expect some financial assistance with the overall pricing for your treatment.
