- The Q&A from the flyer
Q. What is Phototherapy?
A. Phototherapy, sometimes referred to as light therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light that have been shown to be very effective. This light occurs naturally as a component of sunlight and is called ultraviolet light.
Q. What is UV Light?
A. The UV Light used in phototherapy is defined as UVB (Medium Wavelength) UV light or UVA (Long Wavelength UV Light) and today UVB Narrow Band is a very narrow band of wavelengths centered around 311 nm which seem to provide the optimal treatment with very little risk of sunburn.
Q. Is UV Phototherapy Safe?
A. At the time of writing there are no documented cases of any skin cancers attributable to UVB or UVB Narrow Band light. Excessive exposure may cause problems but even this is yet to be proven. Indications are that UVB and UVB Narrow Band are very safe when used within the guidelines provided by your doctor.
Q. Which form of UV should I use, UVA, UVB or UVB Narrow Band?
A. Probably UVB Narrowband for most skin challenges. UVA requires the use of Psoralen or Methoxalen taken internally or as a cream to make your skin sensitive to the UVA light. These drugs can introduce other problems such as nausea or other discomfort. PUVA (UVA and Psoralen) requires the patient wear UV blocking eyewear in the 24 to 48 hour period following treatment as the eyes also become extremely sensitive to UV light.
Q. How does phototherapy compare to other forms of treatment.
A. Typically other treatments require prescription steroids or systemic drugs. These alternatives are costly, probably not effective for long term use and have the potential for serious side effects.
Q. Is home phototherapy expensive?
A. Today many insurance companies will cover the majority of the expense. Amjo can help you throughout the insurance claim process.
Q. What’s the warranty on Home Phototherapy Systems from Amjo?
A. The Panosol II Panels, our Hand/Foot II and of course the Foldalite III all come with a limited Three Year in-home warranty, excluding lamps which are warranted for ninety days. Our Handheld wands come with a one year limited warranty.
