    Role of Ultraviolet Rays in Skin Treatments

    What is PhotoIV Therapy?
    It is true that Ultraviolet Therapy or PhotoIV Therapy, a culprit behind sunburns, wrinkles and skin cancer — does offer goodness for some skin conditions. Under a medical setting, the same UV rays that are emitted from the sun can be carefully used as therapy for certain hard-to-treat skin problems and other medical conditions. Ultraviolet Therapy is a biological healing modality that utilizes ultraviolet irradiation of the blood to produce beneficial photochemical reactions. As the blood is withdrawn it is exposed to UV rays on the way into the bottle. Ozone is then bubbled into the blood and mixed minutely. This mixture is then re-infused using the same needle.

    What are kind of major Ultraviolet rays?
    The major forms of ultraviolet light that reaches us from the sun are called ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB). These have the same wavelengths of light that are used for medical therapies.
    These UV rays cause changes in cell DNA leading to cell damage and possible cell mutations that can turn a natural skin cell into a malignant one. UVB rays are the one responsible for sunburn. UVA rays are known for causing skin cancer since they penetrate skin more deeply. With PhotoIV Therapy, useful aspects of UVA and UVB light are harnessed for good.

    How is this therapy performed?
    The therapy is usually given in a medical clinic, where medical administer UV ray therapy with a variety of devices. Major equipment include larger, full-body units such as light beds and body-sized light cabinets. Smaller equipment may include light cabinets for the hands and feet, combs that emit light from reaching the scalp, and lasers to focus a high-intensity beam of UV light on a small area.

    Are these therapies harmless?
    This treatment is a powerful tool to help in the fight against many chronic diseases. This can address most of the common biological denominators in the disease process at the cellular level. It results in:
    • Increased oxygen carrying capability
    • Corrected hypochondria energy deficits
    • Stimulated lymphatic detoxification
    • Activated immune system cells and cytokine production to aid in destruction of all types of microbes
    • Increased intra-cellular antioxidants against oxidant stress.
    How many sessions are needed and how often are they given?
    Therapy sessions may last from a few minutes to an hour and may take place two to seven days. It may take dozens of sessions to acquire a measured response. For a chronic disease, one to three treatments per week is given until a response is obtained. For instance- patients with chronic fatigue or arthritis, may take two sessions a week for three weeks, and then once a week for another four weeks. In continual genital herpes, a unique protocol is used. It involves daily sessions during an outbreak. The result is that the outbreak is usually much shorter and the patient experiences much less pain. If another outbreak occurs, the treatment is given again.
