Psoriasis is a non-contagious skin disease that affects millions of North Americans. It causes the development of various sizes of red patches covered with dry, silvery scales.
Those suffering with this illness experience inflammation during different times and presently there is no known cure.
Our Phototherapy service offers an Ultraviolet (UV) booth; UVB PUVA booth; and the PUVA Hand and Foot unit -- forms of artificial light used to treat psoriasis.
This service is unique to the GHC and Sault Ste. Marie. Prior to introducing our Phototherapy service, residents with this illness had to endure numerous trips to Sudbury per week to receive this service that usually takes seconds per treatment!
Appointments are by referral from a dermatologist/dermatopathology.
