-- EU treats baldness with photo-therapy Phototherapy (a kind of radiotherapy) practiced by Ege University Faculty of Medicine Dermatology Major Branch prevents hair loss, according to the written statement of the university on Thursday. Explaining that two kinds of rays are used in phototherapy, Ege University Faculty of Medicine Dermatology Major Branch Lecturer Can Ceylan said in the statement: “Some group of patients receives therapy with the ray we call ultraviolet A. These patients use Psovaleren, which increases their sensitivity to light. Two hours later they receive the rays in a special chamber. This treatment is repeated two-three times a week. The same method can be used for psoriasis patients. If positive responses are received, we can continue for some more time. On the other hand ultraviolet B is again applied in special cabins yet this time the patients do not have to use any medicines for the light to be received. While the rays can be applied to the body as a whole, the local application is also possible. By this method, the cells that cause baldness are destroyed and the hair is stimulated.” Stating that baldness can have many different reasons, Ceylan said: “Hormonal factors, stress, wrong choice of cosmetics are among them. Among men baldness due to hormonal factors in young ages is more widespread. Among women baldness usually appears due to pregnancy and menopause. Again in childhood local baldness can be observed. Psychological support is an important part of the therapies applied to the children.”
