It does work when provided incrementally and safely by trained nurses.
Ordinary tanning machines won’t work the same way, it must be narrow band uvb.

I've got a sun bed with the medical UVB tubes fitted and it helps me to keep it under control.

Yes. Very effective. Cleared up totally and stayed clear for 3 years. If your insurance will pay for it definitely give it a try.
