Phototherapy uses ultraviolet light to treat skin disease.
Many skin diseases are treated with phototherapy. Some of the most common are:
- T-cell lymphoma (a type of cancer)
- Vitiligo (pigment loss)
Medical phototherapy differs from tanning booths in that phototherapy is treatment under medical supervision to maximize its effectiveness and safety.
If you need this service, you have the confidence of knowing our staff delivers thousands of ultraviolet light treatments each year at Maine's only hospital-based phototherapy treatment unit.
You must have a dermatologist's referral to take advantage of phototherapy.
At MaineGeneral, we believe you should have accurate information to help you choose a health care provider or medical practice based on the quality of care you can expect to receive.
