What is Eczema Treatment?
Eczema treatment is a solution to uncomfortable eczema symptoms in patients of all ages. Narrow band ultraviolet light is used to help reduce symptoms, without the side-effects of other eczema treatment options.
I’ve been a patient here for about 4 years, and I couldn’t be more pleased. The staff is really nice, and appointments are 90% on time, and the doctor is really great. He doesn’t over prescribe/offer unneeded treatments, and he is really just a nice guy. 10/10, 100% recommended.”
Who is a Good Candidate?
Any individual with eczema may benefit from this treatment option. There are multiple types of eczema that can come in waves lasting for a short period of time, or be long-lasting. Common symptoms of eczema include:
- Swollen, red, and scaly skin
- Itchy patches of skin
- Rough, leathery patches of skin
- Dark colored patches of skin
- Areas of swelling
A consultation appointment with Dr. Baird can help to discuss your symptoms, the types of skincare products you use, and family history to best determine if this treatment is right for you.
How is Treatment Done?
Eczema is treated in Farmington Hills using narrow band ultraviolet light. Treatment is done in office and does not require any type of anesthesia. During treatment, patients will stand inside a special light box which emits UVB light. This type of light helps to reduce symptoms of eczema, including itching and inflammation, as well as increase vitamin D production and increase bacteria-fighting systems in the skin.
Eczema Treatment Recovery
There is no downtime associated with narrow band ultraviolet light treatments. Patients commonly require 2-3 treatments per week to see effective results. After several months of treatment, frequency of visits can often be reduced. Some patients may experience a remission of their eczema with a halt to symptoms.
