How Daavlin UV Phototherapy Can Help Clear Your Psoriasis

As an autoimmune disease, psoriasis can affect your quality of life if not properly treated. The condition, which can cause itchy and scaly patches of skin to form on the scalp, knees, and elbows, can flare up when you least expect it. This not only can become physically disruptive to your life, but psoriasis symptoms can also influence how you feel about your appearance.

Board-certified dermatologist David Bushore, MD, at Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics, understands how psoriasis can interfere with your skin health and self-confidence. He offers several innovative treatments to address psoriasis symptoms, including Daavlin® UV phototherapy technology.

What causes psoriasis flare-ups?

Psoriasis results from a dysfunction in the immune system. This dysfunction causes skin cells to develop more rapidly than normal. This overproduction of cells can cause scaly patches of skin to grow.

Sufferers of psoriasis can also experience chronically dry skin that’s susceptible to cracking, bleeding, and burning. Dry skin can become incredibly itchy and increase your risk for infection and skin damage from scratching.

The condition, which is usually tied to genetics, can appear as early as the teen years or later in adulthood.

If you have psoriasis, you should seek treatment from board-certified dermatologist David Bushore, MD when flare-ups begin to interfere with your life. While there’s no cure for the disease, UV phototherapy, and other treatments can help you manage any symptoms.

What to expect from Daavlin UV phototherapy

The Daavlin system uses ultraviolet (UV) light energy to trigger the normal production of skin cells. Without excess cell production, the scales and other symptoms of psoriasis should begin to disappear, and your risk for future flare-ups should fall dramatically.

Phototherapy is quick and noninvasive and may be the ideal alternative to medications. Board-certified dermatologist David Bushore, MD, will customize your treatment plan to achieve the best possible outcome.

The many benefits of Daavlin UV phototherapy

Daavlin UV phototherapy offers many benefits over traditional psoriasis medications. Some of the biggest benefits of UV phototherapy include:

Safe for all skin types

The Daavlin system is safe and effective for treating psoriasis. Additionally, the technology can treat many other common skin conditions, including eczema, without side effects. Its safety makes UV phototherapy a good choice for kids, pregnant women, and people with underlying health issues.

Get results fast

Many medications for psoriasis can take months to become fully effective. Daavlin UV phototherapy can ease your symptoms and clear your skin in just 4-5 weeks.

Enjoy long-lasting benefits

Daavlin UV phototherapy offers long-term results. Many patients treated with the system have less frequent psoriasis flare-ups than they do with oral medications or topicals.

Treatment is affordable

Professional UV phototherapy sessions are not only carefully supervised by board-certified dermatologist David Bushore, MD, but they can also be more affordable than long-term medications and are generally covered under insurance.
