The 311 narrowband uvb photohtherapy is a physical device, which is irradiated by uvb light of a specific wavelength, and irradiates a skin lesion by uv light to treat vitiligo,psoriasis and eczema, thereby achieving the purpose of treating skin diseases. Narrowband UVB has proven to be the most effective phototherapy solution for thousands of psoriasis patients worldwide. Therefore, 311 narrowband UVB emission of light in the 311-312 nm wavelength range is considered to be the safest and most efficient light. The emergence of narrowband UVB has made it possible to greatly improve the irradiation intensity and shorten the treatment time, which has greatly improved effect of various skin diseases.

Most hospitals use PUVA technology, which requires simultaneous exposure to UVA uv light and oral photosensitive tablets. However, the side effects caused by UVA and the side effects caused by photosensitive tablets are obvious. The narrowband UVB illuminator solves the problem of excessive UV exposure. Not only can the patient fully receive the light of the narrowband UVB emission in the range of 311-312 nm (this range is the most beneficial part of natural sunlight), while UVB treatment does not require other auxiliary medicines. The side effects of using photosensitive medicine in traditional PUVA methods are avoided, and these features make narrowband UVB increasingly popular among patients and doctors. With more research done daily under conditions such as eczema, vitiligo and mycosis fungoides, narrowband UVB continues to show its versatility and its promising results.

Traditional broadband UVB lamps emit light in the wavelength range of 280-330 nm, and clinical studies have shown that light below 300 nm can cause severe burns and increase the risk of skin cancer. Therefore, 311 narrowband UVB phototherapy emission of light in the 311-312 nm wavelength range is considered to be the safest and most efficient light.

The benefits of narrowband phototherapy
UVB has an immunosuppressive effect, which protects melanocytes that migrate and proliferate from damage. NB-UVB irradiation treatment is divided into whole body irradiation and local irradiation, and the former or the latter depends on the type of the disease. At the same time, the irradiation process can be supplemented by other treatments, such as injection of Chinese and Western medicine preparations, oral, topical and epidermal transplantation.
Eliminating UV light with wavelengths below 311 nm results in higher intensity and longer exposure times, so patients can get the most benefit from phototherapy. This increased effectiveness allows for a more aggressive treatment regimen, resulting in a shorter treatment process.

The emergence of 311 nm narrowband UVB has made it possible to improve the irradiation intensity and shorten the treatment time, which has greatly improved the treatment effect of various skin diseases. 311 narrowband uvb is also a new method for the treatment of vitiligo. After UVB phototherapy, the skin lesions in the patient can increase the tyrosinase activity in the skin, which promotes the synthesis of melanocytes, thereby achieving the purpose of cure. Clinical practice shows that the 311nm narrow spectrum The efficacy of UVB is superior to traditional phototherapy. In clinical practice, we also found that before the application of 311 narrowband  UVB treatment, such as combined with traditional Chinese medicine fumigation treatment system or medicated bath therapy will achieve better therapeutic effect.
