UVB Philips Narrowband Lamps

Be Alert:

Important information which not all websites tell you, make an informed decision before purchase.

If you are currently receiving treatment in Hospital & considering the purchase of your own home Phototherapy unit, look at the Hospital Lamps being used. Ask your dermatologist which Lamps he/she would recommend for the unit being purchased. The answer will be Philips UVB narrowband lamps in both instances.

Do not settle for unknown, unbranded lamps, insist on Philips UVB narrowband lamps for your home treatment.

Some websites will give medical research quoting Philips Lamps. At the same time they do not offer these UVB light therapy lamps in the units they sell. Ask yourself WHY?

There are traders claiming to be health specialists who retail their own herbal remedies in conjuction with NON PHILIPS LAMPS for the treatment of Psoriasis

There are traders who offer a 24 hour delivery service using unbranded psoriasis lamps. Do not compromise they are not medically approved.

The light therapy lamps may be imprinted with UVB Narrowband 311NM but are they the genuine Philips article? the answer is NO. The lamps must be branded PHILIPS Narrowband TL/01, remember these UVB lamps are the ONLY ones that are medically approved.

Some websites will claim to offer the identical UVB light therapy treatment as Hospitals. Hospitals only use Philips UVB narrowband lamps. If the units they supply do not contain Philips Lamps how is this possible? All Lamps made by Philips are branded Philips Lamps. Insist on Philips, the ONLY UVB Narrowband Phototherapy Lamps that are certified to be the safest on the skin. Hospitals would never use unbranded, unproven Lamps.

You may find a DUBIOUS website stating "working in partnership with Philips" but surprisingly NOT supplying Philips Lamps. They may even quote "UVB narrowband 311 Lamps for psoriasis, & say words like "philips electronic ballasts" thus, misleading people to belive that they also supply Philips lamps. They also state hospital results & providing quality brand names such as Philips" Note carefully" Dictionary definition of the word SUCH specific but not known or similar! (You may even see a picture of a Philips Lamp on the website or a video stating UVB Narrowband Philips TL/01 alongside the video) BEWARE! Do not assume that these units/lamps on offer will be Philips. There are many imported versions without Philips proven technology. CLARIFY BEFORE PURCHASE. Also, why consider an extended 2 year warranty ? Genuine Philips lamps have a life expectancy of 2000 hours before there is any decline in efficiency. Why take risks with unknown, unbranded substitute lamps? There are no bargains to be had with these offers! .N.B. Genuine Philips lamps are sold VAT FREE. See “HOSPITAL LAMPS” to ascertain the “True” & "Fake” lamps

More than 400 independent clinical studies around the world have shown that Philips UVB Narrowband (TL/01) Phototherapy Lamps are the most effective currently available for the treatment of Psoriasis & Vitiligo as well as less common skin diseases.

If you have any questions always make sure you speak personally with a consultant. Do not settle for an answer machine; call center or leaving messages on line, BE ALERT. This Should "Ring Alarm Bells", click on to the video above. "Stop Psoriasis" & "FAQs", "Philips Phototherapy Video" If you ring Skinmatters Bristol, a member of staff will always answer your call or email if preferred. If you ring a company that never answers the phone, or you email a question but they never reply, ask WHY?

Invest in a specialist product, it can be tempting to buy cheaper.

Why gamble with your health?
