Why Choose UVB Light Therapy For Acne Treatment?

UVB light therapy has been clinically proven to be highly effective in treating acne. It works by targeting the root causes of acne, such as excess sebum production, inflammation, and the growth of acne-causing bacteria. By penetrating the skin’s surface, UVB light helps to reduce inflammation, kill bacteria, and regulate oil production.

Throughout the UK, many people suffer from underlying or severe conditions with their skin. These can be extremely irritating, life consuming and stressful to deal with day-to-day, thus why many people use our range of machines and lamps to help with their skin. Especially with the NHS not providing this type of treatment anymore (years of backlogs), many people have resorted to buying their own device to use at home.

This is why Skin Matters Bristol are here to help the public by providing UVB narrowband light therapy. We offer a wide range of UVB narrowband phototherapy units, all of which we can deliver across the whole of the UK. If your acne falls under the chronic category, we can offer you 20% off our machines and narrowband tubes.

Unlike many traditional acne treatments that rely on harsh chemicals or medications, UVB light therapy is a non-invasive and drug-free approach. It offers a natural alternative for those seeking safe and gentle treatment options, especially for individuals with sensitive skin or those looking to minimise the use of medications.

At Skin Matters Bristol, we understand that each individual’s acne journey is unique. That’s why we offer advice on how often to use your UVB Machine or which option to go for. With our UVB machines, you can enjoy the convenience and privacy of treating your acne in the comfort of your own home. No need for frequent dermatologist visits or costly spa treatments. Our machines are designed to be user-friendly, allowing you to follow your treatment plan at your own pace and on your schedule.

How UVB Light Therapy treats Acne

UVB light therapy can be a treatment option for acne, a common skin condition characterised by pimples, blackheads, and cysts. Here are some reasons why UVB light therapy is considered effective for acne:

Reduces Inflammation: UVB therapy helps reduce inflammation in the skin, which is a key factor in acne development. By reducing inflammation, it can decrease the severity of acne breakouts.

Kills Bacteria: UVB light has antibacterial properties and can kill the bacteria on the skin that contribute to acne formation, particularly Cutibacterium acnes (formerly Propionibacterium acnes).

Controls Oil Production: UVB therapy can help regulate sebum (oil) production in the skin. Overproduction of sebum is a contributing factor to acne.

Promotes Skin Healing: UVB light can promote the healing process of the skin, helping to clear up existing acne lesions and prevent the formation of new ones.

Non-Invasive Treatment: It is a non-invasive and generally pain-free option, which can be appealing for those looking for alternatives to oral medications or invasive procedures.

Reduces Skin Congestion: UVB light therapy can help to unclog pores, reducing the likelihood of them becoming blocked with oil and dead skin cells, which can lead to acne.

Improves Skin Texture and Tone: Regular sessions can improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, which can be beneficial for individuals with acne scars or uneven skin tone due to acne.

Psychological Benefits: Improvement in acne symptoms can lead to enhanced self-esteem and confidence, as acne can have significant emotional and psychological effects.

Complementary to Other Treatments: UVB therapy can be used alongside other acne treatments, such as topical creams and oral medications, to enhance overall effectiveness.

Suitable for Various Acne Types: It can be effective for different types of acne, including inflammatory and cystic acne.

No VAT To Pay

Here at Skin Matters Bristol, we do not charge VAT for those who suffer with chronic conditions. A chronic condition is a human health condition or disease that is persistent or otherwise long-lasting in its effects or a disease that comes with time. The term chronic is often applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months.
