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?
Hi Martina, i'm taking UVB for just under a year for my back and hands. I have heard it works well on the face. I'm in Canada and go to a dermatologist who provides it. Quite lucky really has i believe there's only 2 locations in the city that provide it. The UVB starts off with just a few seconds and increases. i'm up to 2 mins 3 x wk and don't want any more increase in minutes than that as it could burn. I pay $20.00 a month. You could also think of purchasing too.
Thank you for this information. I am tight with cash but it doesn't seems too expensive, definitely making an appointment with dermatologist to check this up maybe I can apply it around my lips as you can see in my photo. ☺️
Hello! 🙂 Martina.
Yes Check with your insurance to see if they will cover your UVB.....
If you have insurance it should cover the UVB treatment. I only go 1 x a week because I’m 45 min away . It has made a big difference and has helped keep it at bay .
