Home Treatment for Eczema

Here at Skin Matters Bristol, our range of UVB narrowband lamps are manufactured to suit the needs of your skin. Made by Phillips, these machines are effective for clearing up both mild and severe cases of eczema. We offer handheld UVB Lamps for Eczema conditions, and also full body machines containing different amounts of UVB output.

Eczema is a dry skin condition, it is not contagious and you cannot catch it from someone else. It is a condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms (full body or parts of the skin). Eczema is also known as dermatitis or atopic eczema.

Dermatitis is a general term that describes a common skin irritation. It has many causes and forms and usually involves itchy, dry skin or a rash. Or it might cause the skin to blister, ooze, crust or flake off. Although atopic eczema can affect any part of the body, it most often affects the hands, insides of the elbows, backs of the knees and the face and scalp in children. Those with atopic eczema usually have periods when symptoms are less noticeable, as well as periods when symptoms become more severe (flare-ups).

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 eczema falls under the chronic category, we can offer you 20% off our machines and narrowband tubes.

How UVB Light Therapy treats Eczema

UVB light therapy is used as a treatment for eczema, a common skin condition characterized by itchy, inflamed, and sometimes blistering skin. Here are some of the reasons why it is effective:

Reduces Inflammation: UVB light therapy helps reduce inflammation in the skin, which is a primary symptom of eczema, thereby alleviating redness, swelling, and discomfort.

Decreases Itching: Regular sessions can significantly reduce the itching associated with eczema, providing relief to patients.

Improves Skin Barrier Function: UVB light can help improve the skin’s barrier function, which is often compromised in eczema sufferers, leading to enhanced skin health and reduced susceptibility to irritants and allergens.

Modulates Immune System Response: Eczema is partly driven by an overactive immune system response in the skin. UVB therapy can modulate this response, decreasing the severity of eczema symptoms.

Non-Invasive and Safe: UVB light therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that is generally safe and well-tolerated by most patients, including children.

Reduces Reliance on Medications: For some patients, UVB therapy can reduce the need for topical steroids or other medications, which can have more significant side effects with long-term use.

Psychological Benefits: Improvement in eczema symptoms can lead to better self-esteem and a higher quality of life, as the condition can be quite distressing.

Suitable for Chronic Cases: UVB light therapy can be particularly beneficial for chronic or severe cases of eczema that have not responded well to traditional treatments.

Convenient Treatment Option: With the advent of home UVB therapy units, treatment can be convenient and fit into the patient’s lifestyle and schedule.

Improves Overall Skin Health: By controlling eczema flare-ups and maintaining skin health, UVB therapy can help maintain the skin’s integrity and prevent further complications.

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.
