Interesting blog I read today in one of the medical journals . It read that Phototheraphy is used to treat jaundice to reduce the serum bilirubin levels . Amazing is’nt it ? Jaundice is yellow appearance of the skin with deposition of bilirubin in the dermal and subcutaneous tissue . Now ,doctors have started using light theraphy to reduce this formation of bilirubin.
Phototherapy (light treatment) is the process of using light to eliminate bilirubin in the blood. Your baby’s skin and blood absorb these light waves. These light waves are absorbed by your baby’s skin and blood and change bilirubin into products, which can pass through their system.
