UVB Treatment From

Your Own Home

Instead of making appointments with doctors and having to wait in queues of people, home treatment is a viable option that we, ourselves, recommend highly. Especially for skin conditions such as Eczema, Vitiligo or Psoriasis (specialist light treatment for psoriasis), home treatment is just as effective and safe as in the ward of a hospital, said by many researchers and doctors worldwide.

Light therapy for psoriasis at home is a common solution that thousands of patients have trusted, with incredible results expected in just 4-6 weeks. Phillips UVB Lamps are the perfect remedy for helping you feel comfortable in your own skin again.

2 Tube UVB Narrowband Phototherapy Compact Unit

The 2 tube uvb Narrowband compact unit is for localised skin problems for use on the face, hands, legs, back and arms. It complies with the latest British and European standards, and offers the same results as the larger foldaway unit. These phototherapy lamps will target specific areas, as we understand that skin conditions can be better or worse in different areas of the body.

Home Treatment of Recurring Skin Conditions 

Phototherapy using UVB light is rarely used in the UK because of limited availability and the number of hospital visits required (the backlog with the NHS can leave you waiting a long time). But a study of 200 patients found the same results with home treatment. One UK expert said the British Medical Journal study highlighted an important treatment gap in psoriasis care. In this area of work, there are very large numbers of people who don’t have access to phototherapy, which is a shame as it’s a very effective and safe treatment. Especially in built up areas such as Cheltenham, Bristol and Gloucester, finding hospital bookings can be hard to come by. Psoriasis light treatment is the solution for you.

Gladys Edwards, chief executive of the Psoriasis Association, said “the guidelines on treating psoriasis should be reviewed in light of the new research. Patient choice is important and for some patients managing their UV treatment at home would clearly be preferable. It is crucial, however, that there is absolutely clear guidance and information on when this is appropriate and how it should be managed for patients and doctors alike.”

This is why we offer home treatments, as this is available for you to use 24/7 for the duration of your hire, or if you buy the appliance completely. This takes away the struggle of balancing appointments with doctors or experimenting with other methods such as using sunbeds. Sunbed skin damage is a real factor as to why you should NEVER use these as a skin remedy source.
