Home UVB lamp

Most people get ultraviolet light B (UVB) treatments at doctors' offices or clinics. However,  a person can purchase a home UVB unit.

Home phototherapy is useful for patients who live far from a medical facility or sometimes for people who need maintenance UVB treatments to keep psoriasis at bay.

The treatments depend on the person's skin type, the type of UVB device and its intensity of light. 

A home UVB unit is not the same as a tanning bed.  Tanning beds offer a different form of UV light (UVA).
