As with any form of treatment, the best regimen of phototherapy varies for each patient and is greatly dependent on skin type. “Narrow-band UVB is effective for the treatment of psoriasis.” The complexity of dosing should not be a barrier that prevents patients from receiving an extremely beneficial form of therapy. Therefore, Alice Do and John Koo compiled the most current protocols for prescribing narrow-band ultraviolet with the aim of providing confidence and support for dermatologists as they get more comfortable introducing this treatment modality to patient cases.
