by | Sep 20, 2023

Living with psoriasis can be challenging. The persistent, itchy, and sometimes painful skin plaques can take a toll on your self-esteem and overall well-being. If you’ve been seeking relief from this chronic skin condition, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there’s a ray of hope: UVB lamps.

Our range of UVB Light Therapy provides the most effective treatment of Psoriasis, no matter where it is on your body. Our aim is to provide you with the best UVB technology available, treating skin conditions such as psoriasis from the comfort of your own home. In fact, just from Psoriasis alone, 2% of the world’s population suffer from it, effecting hundreds of millions across the globe, so let’s better understand the condition.


Understanding Psoriasis

Before we delve into the benefits of UVB lamps, let’s briefly understand psoriasis. This autoimmune disorder causes the skin cells to multiply at an accelerated rate, leading to the formation of thick, red, scaly patches. Psoriasis isn’t just skin deep; it can affect your emotional and mental health as well.

On brown, black and white skin the patches can look pink or red, and the scales white or silvery. On brown and black skin the patches can also look purple or dark brown, and the scales may look grey. These patches normally appear on your elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but can appear anywhere on your body.  Most people are only affected with small patches. In some cases, the patches can be itchy or sore.

Psoriasis affects around 2 in 100 people in the UK. It can start at any age, but most often develops in adults between 20 and 30 years old and between 50 and 60 years old. It affects men and women equally. The severity of psoriasis varies greatly from person to person. For some it’s just a minor irritation, but for others it can have a big impact on their quality of life. Psoriasis is a long-lasting (chronic) disease that usually involves periods when you have no symptoms or mild symptoms, followed by periods when symptoms are more severe


The UVB Solution


1. Targeted Treatment

UVB lamps emit a specific wavelength of ultraviolet (UV) light known as UVB. This targeted approach slows down the excessive growth of skin cells, reducing the thickness and redness of psoriasis plaques. The result? Clearer, smoother skin.

2. Safe and Effective

UVB therapy is widely recognised as a safe and effective treatment for psoriasis. Unlike some other treatments, UVB lamps don’t involve the use of chemicals or medications, minimising potential side effects.

3. Convenient Home Use

Imagine the convenience of treating your psoriasis from the comfort of your own home. UVB lamps are available for home use, allowing you to fit treatments into your schedule. No more frequent trips to a clinic!

4. Customised to Your Needs

Not all cases of psoriasis are the same. UVB lamps can be customised to match your skin type and the severity of your condition. Your treatment plan is tailored just for you.

5. Controlled Exposure

UVB lamps provide controlled exposure to UVB light, minimising the risk of sunburn and other skin damage. Modern UVB lamps come with safety features to ensure your treatment is both effective and safe.
