Narrowband UVB (NB-UVB) Phototherapy

Narrowband UVB (NB-UVB) Phototherapy

I have not discussed this with any doctor because it scares me. However I have the question of whether this is to return the skin color and is it an ongoing treatment? Is it expensive treatment?

Thank you,
Martina.

If you have insurance it should cover the UVB treatment. I only go 1 x a week because Iโ€™m 45 min away . It has made a big difference and has helped keep it at bay .
