Most skin disorders are primarily due to infectious, genetic, and dermatological factors in the epidermal surfaces of the human body. In the medical field, the most common means of treatment of these skin diseases is through phototherapy. In this phototherapy technology, the procedure is mainly focused on the use of artificial ultraviolet B (UVB) light to stimulate skin healing through immune responses of the human body. Recent developments in the field of phototherapy have opened up new frontiers in medicine through the creation of nanoscale drugs that are capable of killing, regenerating, and repairing infectious skin cells. Despite the benefits of these nanoscale drugs, the development of nanoscale devices using nanomaterials that offer similar benefits is limited. The aim of this chapter is to review the role of different biocompatible nanomaterial devices with enhanced narrowband UVB emissions for treatments of infectious skin diseases in phototherapy.
