Customer Testimonial

before and after

After having chronic psoriasis for the past 8 years, I was really struggling within my own skin.

That’s when I found Skin Matters Bristol and hired the UV light for a number of weeks.

After an 8 week session, I am completely cleared! I highly recommend and commend this company and their products! Thank you Skin Matters Bristol!

What Is UVB Light Therapy And What Are The Benefits?

Narrowband UVB devices can treat a variety of skin conditions, actively helping cure the spread of Psoriasis, Vitiligo, Eczema and Scleroderma. These machines are medically approved, giving you the ability to treat your condition from your own home, whenever you require treatment.

Our range of devices are specifically designed to offer you the most appropriate and sound UVB treatment based on the severity of your condition, giving you clear instructions on how to use and store the machines. From hand held devices that will treat small localised areas of the body (hands, arms, face…etc), through to large units that deliver hospital style full body coverage, we have all the options available at your disposal. Especially if you are local to the Bristol or Gloucestershire area, you can hire out one of our machines over a prolonged period of time for a fraction of the price!

By having these machines in your home, you can avoid the long queues and delays that are expected when it comes to this source of treatment. However, we do advice that you keep your dermatologist or GP aware of any therapy you do choose to complete at home in your own time using your own equipment, as you should always listen to any advice they may have surrounding your condition.

Stress is proven to worsen skin conditions, with many practices still not clear that this is a trigger to auto immune conditions. Having immediate access to a medically proven remediation therapy will undoubtedly reduce your stress levels and in-turn improve your skin.

The narrowband UVB lights emit a smaller range of ultraviolet light, so they are not dangerous for you long term, so you won’t have to consider any side effects from using the machine, with many people associating cancers with using these devices. This is strictly NOT a side effect of using these units.

When using these machines, you take away the stress on having to rely on creams and ointments, which for some can lead to side effects that can make the condition seem worse. This will also mean you do not have to take any drugs or steroids to help combat your condition.

What To Expect After Using UVB Treatment

The treatment using one of our UVB lamps can last anywhere between four weeks through to three months, it completely depends on how quickly your skin reacts to this treatment! In order to allow the skin to get used to the radiation, the initial dose is determined based on the patient’s skin type and is then usually gradually increased. For the first few times using the machines, this might taking place bi-weekly for only a minute, but the aim is to gradually increase the dosage as time goes on.

It is estimated that the symptoms improve noticeably or go away completely for a while in 50 to 90 out of 100 people. Side effects may occur when using the light therapy machines, but this varies from person to person. As the lamps use a concentrated form of UVB, the results are proven to have a 98.8% success rate. Whilst there is no defining cure for skin conditions such as psoriasis or vitiligo, this remedy of using Philips 311nm UVB Narrowband lamps is a well-established therapy, highly recommended by doctors and professionals globally. Most people who use our units see improvements in their skin after using for 6-8 weeks.

How Does UVB Treatment Work?

Psoriasis is a common disorder caused by the rapid production of new skin cells, causing red scaly patches. Up to 3% of the UK population is affected by the non-contagious condition which can cause significant disability. For those who have access to UVB treatment at their local dermatology unit, a course usually entails three visits each week for between eight to ten weeks.

It works by calming down the immune overreaction in the skin. One reason that the treatment is usually done in hospital is because most dermatologists believe that home phototherapy is inferior and that it carries more risks. In more detail, UVB penetrates the skin and slows the growth of the affected skin cells. By doing this on a regular basis (3/4 times a week) and under this medically certified equipment we provide, the skin will heal over a period of time, usually between 6-8 weeks.

These rays produced are responsible for burning and tanning and help reduce inflammation in the skin. The skin is only exposed to UVB light wavelengths between 311 and 313 nanometres. The idea is that limiting the light spectrum in this way reduces the risk of potential side effects.

What are the key benefits of these UVB Light Therapy units?

- UVB light reduces inflammation and slows the production of skin cells, so by having these units in the comfort of your own home, you can access these machines freely when you choose fit, rather than relying on NHS appointments in and around working hours.

- The treatment is usually given three times a week, not affecting your home environment through easy storage options available.

- Phototherapy is seen as the best treatment possible for skin conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo, highly recommended by doctors across the globe.

- You can expect to see results in as quickly as 2-4 weeks, but it depends how your skin reacts to the UVB rays. On average, it can take 6-8 weeks to see vast improvements in your condition using these units 3 or 4 times a week following instructions.

- An estimated 85 percent of people using narrow-band UVB therapy, which is the most common type, will develop clear skin. This will last for at least 6 months.

- Light therapy can treat plaque, palmoplantar, nail, and scalp psoriasis. So no matter where the skin condition is on your body, you can access these machines from your own home in complete privacy.

What to look for, Are the Lamps supplied Philips?

See Video On Home Page “Stop Psoriasis” Beware
The lamps may be imprinted with UVB Narrowband 311 NM but are they the genuine Philips article? The answer in NO. The lamps must be branded Philips Narrowband TL/01, remember these lamps are the only ones that are medically approved.

The lamps MUST be branded “Philips Narrowband TL 100W/01” Remember, these lamps are the only ones that are medically approved. N.B. Philips do NOT supply medical lamps to unqualified traders.

Beware of websites trying to mislead you. Do not be deceived by a photo of a Philips lamp displayed on an unqualified traders’ website. Some traders’ state, that although their lamps are not branded “Philips” they are in fact manufactured by Philips. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS!!

Look for the trademark name, i.e. “PHILIPS” Fake lamps will not reflect this and therefore are not sold VAT free (for chronic conditions)

The one question that MUST be answered PRIOR to purchase is “DO YOUR UNITS COME FITTED WITH PHILIPS TL/01 UVB Narrowband lamps, as used in hospitals Worldwide?” if you phone them & the response is either from an answer machine or call centre, BE ALERT. This should “RING ALARM BELLS” They do not wish to personally answer the question involved, &, if eventually you do receive a call back, probably they will suggest, in addition, that you purchase other unproven health care products from them. All units we supply are fitted with GENUINE PHILIPS LAMPS & are delivered by our courier. NO OTHER PERSON IS IN THE EQUATION, i.e. Skinmatters Bristol = Direct Delivery to the purchaser.

A genuine Philips Lamp is as displayed here, DO NOT ACCEPT ANY SUBSTITUTE, DO NOT COMPROMISE YOUR HEALTH?………

Delivery, our full length Philips UVB Narrowband Units

These units come with free delivery and installation check (UK Mainland)

Delivered by carrier the driver will place the unit where it is required, assemble it and will ensure all lamps are in full working order before departing.

Where is the company based?

Skinmatters is based in Bristol, England. All phone and email enquiries are dealt with immediately by a qualified member of staff (not an EVASIVE answer machine or call centre)

We want you to have 100% full knowledge of our products prior to purchase and would want you to be 100% satisfied that you have purchased the best.

Is the website giving the UVB content of the Lamp? (or is it conveniently left out?)

Most unbranded versions of UVB Narrowband Lamps (311nm) inported from China will not give the UVB content of the Lamp. Why?

A 6ft Philips TL/01 UVB Narrowband Lamp (311 nm) has a UVB content greater than 17%

What is the length of the Lamp?

6ft Lamps are 100 watt in strength.
5ft Lamps are 80 watt in strength.
4ft Lamps are only 40 watt.
2ft Lamp is even less 24 watt.
The shorter the Lamp length, results in reduced wattage and strength.
