One therapy among those possible for treating medium to serious psoriasis without causing secondary effects on the system is to use balneophototherapy which is also offered by us at Hautcentrum Wiesbaden.
Patients have a bath in warm water containing a photosensitizer for approx. 20 minutes, and then step into a modern UV-A booth in order to receive an increasing dosis of UV-A irradiation.
After 25 or 35 sessions lasting about half an hour each, about 85% of these patients report a dramatic improvement and even complete healing for various months. Experience shows that psoriasis patients are highly satisfied by this treatment.
