UVA-1 light therapy

Has anyone ever heard of uva-1 light therapy? It seems to show good results for the "butterfly" effect and skin erythematosis in lupus. I wonder if any of the photo rejuvination lights emit this type of lighting?
I wonder if there are any connections in the way rosacea worsens with sun exposure and the erythematosis in lupus? Any thoughts? Has anyone here ever done much research into lupus?
