Targeted phototherapy is also known as concentrated phototherapy or focused phototherapy or micro phototherapy. In this ultraviolet radiation is focused and delivered with specific wavelength directly on the affected area or patch of the affected skin. It involves laser or non-laser technologies. There were few disadvantages of conventional phototherapy that these treatments gave a slow delivery of light, sometimes surrounding skin was also exposed to the rays. This treatment was very difficult to perform in children. Due to this, a new and advanced technology was introduced that is called targeted phototherapy. In this different technologise are used such as excimer laser, intense pulse light system (IPL), photodynamic therapy and ultraviolet (UV) light source.What are the indications?
