Light Treatment

Light Treatment

I'm having light treatment at the end of the month and I'm really scared my anxiety is through the roof at the moment with everything going on I'm just so scared.

Sorry its been so long... I didn't end up having light treatment in the end and that he put me on some medication and it's worked wonders for my skin I got to take my meds every Sunday but I'm literally so happy with my skin at the moment I still have flare-ups and when they hit the hit bad

I bought a $300 home use hand held UV wand and used it for a month. I noticed marginal improvement, but not enough for the 15 min it took to administer each day.

I’ve been receiving phototherapy for several months...both the laser on specific areas, (fingernails, ears, scalp) and the booth/cabinet for my back. It goes very quickly, painless...and, hopefully, successful!....I wear safety goggles into the booth...and always put the fan on for the heat generated by the lights...I’m up to about a minute and a half each session. I hope that this can help you a little...and might lessen your anxiety. Deep breaths..hang in there...take care!...oh, and I found the nurses to administer the treatment to be such blessings...kind, supportive and knowledgeable!...a plus!

Light treatment is kind of like using a tanning bed. Anxiety is not easy to get through but just breathe. We’re here for you and if we can help just ask. Take care
