Phototherapy is one of the oldest and most common treatments for moderate to severe psoriasis. Today there are many different forms of treatment, which include Narrow band UVB, PUVA, lasers, and natural sunlight. These treatments are also used in combination with other therapies such as topicals, systemic drugs, and biologics.

Casting Light on Phototherapy is a FREE online event that aims to give an introductory overview of phototherapy treatment options and considerations.

Presented by:

Dr. Wilson Liao and Dr. Sahil Sekhon of UCSF in San Francisco, California
