9 Tube Philips TL01 n-UVB Phototherapy Unit



This full length 9 Tube Philips TL01 n-UVB Phototherapy Unit provides full body coverage, enabling whole body, home treatment of Psoriasis, Vitiligo and other conditions that may be treated with UVB Phototherapy.

In the UK, Doctors and Dermatologists will commonly refer you for UVB therapy as it is accepted as an extremely effective therapy for treating these conditions and is the second line of treatment when topical creams and steroids fail to work.

Utilising the same Phototherapy lamps used in hospitals, UVB Phototherapy is now available for you to use in your own home.

Using 9 Philips 311nm TL01 narrowband tubes this Canopy delivers the same light therapy that mirrors treatment of Psoriasis, Vitiligo, Eczema, Scleroderma, Acne and vitamin D deficiency in private and public healthcare practice.

Our full-length Philips UVB Phototherapy Unit is designed for home use, to enable you to treat large areas of Psoriasis over your whole body.

This powerful Phototherapy Unit sits on a metallic swivel stand, is slightly curved to fit the contours of your body and can be tilted to use at any angle, allowing you to use it over a bed, sitting or standing up. It features twin safety timers to ensure that a maximum exposure time of 4 minutes is not exceeded and is manufactured in the UK.

What is UVB Phototherapy?

UVB Phototherapy is an established and effective treatment that has been used in the NHS and globally since the 90’s. Research prior to this established the most therapeutic (and safest) form of UVB to be “Narrowband” UVB (NB-UVB, n-UVB) which is light in the 311nm-313nm spectrum.

n-UVB Phototherapy exposes the skin to this therapeutic light to treat disorders such as Psoriasis, Vitiligo and Eczema.

These disorders are recognised as immune mediated conditions, triggered when the body’s immune system does not function “normally” and becomes overactive.

  • For example, in the case of Psoriasis, the normal skin cell life cycle is accelerated from 4 weeks to 3-4 days resulting in immature skin cells being pushed to the surface of the skin.
  • Or, with Vitiligo, where the immune system is similarly triggered into overactivity, which ultimately causes the destruction of melanocyte cells. Destruction of these cells results in the depigmentation of the skin.

UVB Phototherapy works by affecting a number of biological processes associated with these skin conditions. UVB Phototherapy has a mediating effect on the immune response in the skin, moderating the immune system response to “normal levels” resulting in reduced inflammation, a return to “normal” pigmentation, reduced itchiness and scaling.

Why UVB Phototherapy at home rather than via the NHS?

UVB light therapy involves exposing the skin to the light for very short periods of time. Typically, this exposure will be between 30 seconds and a maximum of 4 minutes, 2-3 times each week, typically seeing results within 4 to 8 weeks. Please note these estimations carefully.  UV Phototherapy is extremely effective, but only if you stick to the treatment regime rigorously.

Contrasting NHS Phototherapy treatment appointments with UVB Phototherapy at home.

  • If you have a n-UVB phototherapy device at home, treating yourself 4 times per week becomes very simple.
  • You do not need to allocate any time for the treatment. You can integrate your 30 second – 4-minute exposure in your daily schedule, after a shower in the morning or your bath at night.
  • No time off work. No awkward conversation regarding your condition.
  • No problem sticking to the treatment schedule. You only have to find a spare 4 minutes somewhere in your day.
  • No travelling to a treatment centre.
  • No costs associated with attending a hospital appointment.
  • UVB Light treatment at home puts you permanently at the front of the queue for treatment.
    • If you miss a few sessions – Not a problem, just restart the course!
    • If your Psoriasis flares up – You can treat yourself immediately!
    • You can take control of the management of your condition!
    • Knowing that you can control your condition reduces the amount of stress associated with a flare. This can break the vicious circle where stressing exacerbates Psoriasis.

At MBS we have endeavoured to make the same n-UVB Phototherapy that is available to patients in a Hospital available to patients at home.

Our most popular selling unit.


Having either been prescribed or, in many cases, having experienced Narrowband UVB therapy in the NHS, our customers come to us to replicate the treatment that they have received.

None of our competitors offer the extensive range of UVB devices that we offer to mirror treatment regimes in Private & Public healthcare practice.

Customers who have been prescribed or experienced UVB Phototherapy in the NHS in recent years will recognise that the n-UVB light therapy is well established and highly effective.

However, the treatment requires absolute consistency. In order to be effective, typically, light therapy requires exposure to n-uvb light for very short periods of time (between 30 seconds and a maximum of 4 minutes) 2-3 times each week, over period of 8 weeks or more.

If the prescribed regime is not followed rigorously (i.e. consecutive sessions are missed) the results are drastically less effective. With long waiting lists for NHS treatment and limited resources, some health care trusts will caution patients that they will not be able to offer treatment if appointments are missed. UVB Phototherapy at home enables patients to schedule treatment sessions at their own convenience in their own homes. No time off work, transport costs, parking charges to attend hospital sessions.

Home UVB light therapy enables you to easily and effectively manage your condition, which, in turn, will change your quality of life.

Before you make your purchase, we would love to speak to you to address any questions, concerns or issues that you may have.

Our customers are generally extremely well informed about n-UVB Phototherapy, but we like to talk to our customers to offer a more personalised service.

28 reviews for 9 Tube Philips TL01 n-UVB Phototherapy Unit

  1. Sharon Shazam

    Top marks for MBS. Roy was firstly able to offer me lots of advice on the unit I was buying and made it clear he was available anytime to go over any queries . The unit arrived sooner than he stated and we were able to use it immediately. My son’s psoriasis responds very quickly to light treatment and after two weeks there were noticeable signs of improvement. He has been using it for a month following the guidelines for use, and he is delighted with the results. He has previously had treatment through NHS, but this is not available when you most need it. Although this was a big cost to us, I am absolutely happy we afforded it as we are now able to keep on top of future breakouts. And thank you Roy for a follow up call and great customer relations.

  2. Kate Barry

    I have had my lamp for about 6 months. I’m only just leaving a review as I wanted to give it time to see any results. Firstly, customer service was 5*. I purchased the lamp to help with my vitaligo. I wasn’t expecting miracles and wasn’t even sure if anything would change. Just thought it was worth a try. However, I have been pleasantly surprised. Very slowly and slightly repigmentation has started to happen. Now i am wishing I would have purchased the lamp years ago!

  3. Ellie E

    I’ve suffered from Psoriasis for over 40 years; I had a major flare up a few months ago after contracting Covid (the sore throat which accompanied this was a trigger). After trying the usual steroid ointments and various creams nothing was really helping and by this time 75% of my body was covered in painful plaques and the itching accompanying this was unbearable and it his severely impacted my life.

    I had previously had UVB treatment at my local hospital which had been very successful in alleviating my condition, however this option was not open to me due the length of the waiting list and I was told I would have to wait until early next year to have more phototherapy. I did some research online and found Much Better Skin; after a call to Roy who was very helpful I ordered a unit and it arrived a couple of weeks later.

    Approximately 8 weeks later my skin is now completely clear – I felt the benefits after just a few sessions and the awful itching had lessened considerably.

    I honestly can’t recommend this unit highly enough – it’s given me my life back and although the canopy isn’t cheap it is worth every penny paid. I now have the peace of mind that when I have an inevitable flare up in the future I’ll be able to treat myself at home right away.

  4. Julian Armytage

    I have suffered with psoriasis for 45 years I am now 75 I wish I had found this treatment years ago ! I would have avoided many useless & unpleasant treatments. This really works, after
    two months I am free of body psoriasis just my knees & elbows continue to persist I can live with that. Many thanks MBS

  5. Frances Robertson

    Delivered quickly and efficiently. The equipment was the best value for money. It was not cheap but the way it quickly fixed my husband’s psoriasis was beyond value. He has suffered physically and mentally with his self esteem for his whole adult life and what a difference now. Clear skin after 3 treatments , so convenient in our own home and not having to take time off work to go to the hospital for a 30 second treatment. I can’t recommend it highly enough it’s a life changer .

  6. Red Frankie

    I have hired from MBS on two occasions – the professionalism and friendliness is simply exceptional – Roy is one of the nicest people I have come across and always kind, informative and helpful – never pushy – a pleasure to deal with. However , it is the results I want to talk about specifically – I have suffered from psoriasis for 20 years – sometimes its quite mild – other times its awful. I have covered up for years and felt very self conscious – had a lot of discomfort and things like sunbathing/swimming have been an absolute no – no. Every cream has been tried and a lot of dietary adjustments – all with limited or zero success. Then I tried one of the UV units – very short sessions ie 30 seconds front and back , alternate days for a few weeks. The results were astonishing – completely cleared my psoriasis – arms, back, legs all cleared up.I am able to go swimming and wander round with shorts and short sleeve tops for the first time in literally decades. I cannot speak highly enough of the whole experience and urge anyone – if you have any doubts – to try an initial hire period and watch for the results – it has literally changed my life.

  7. Jon

    I’ve had my canopy for 6.5 weeks. To say it has changed my life would be an understatement.

    I’ve done 25 sessions in total and my skin is completely clear of the psoriasis that ruined my quality of life for years. I hope I spend a long time in remission but I know the psoriasis will return eventually. It’s such a relief to know that I have a lifeline sitting in the corner of my spare bedroom that I can use whenever I need to.

    Service from MBS was excellent and the canopy was delivered very quickly. The canopy is extremely well made and high quality.

    The canopy wasn’t cheap but undoubtedly one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Hopefully, psoriasis is more or less a thing of the past.

  8. Jess

    I hired one of these machines from Roy last year and was so amazed with how it cleared my skin up, I bought one!
    This machine is exactly the same as the ones you get in the hospital, but buying or hiring one in the comfort of your own home and not having to take time off work or drive to the hospital. It comes with goggles and an information pack.
    I dealt with Roy through the whole process and he was helpful, kind and his customer service is second to none, this guy is like the salt of the earth. I am so grateful for this machine it has given me so much more confidence, going into the summer knowing I don’t have to cover up any more because of my psoriasis. It’s a real game changer!

  9. Sue Rudman

    We hired a 9 tube bed from the very knowledgeable and helpful Roy for our teenage son who has Psoriasis all over his arms, torso and back. After having tried various creams prescribed by our GP – which work like a miracle while you use them, but only for the Psoriasis to come back with a vengeance the minute you stop, we were looking for a better solution. So after some research we decided on trying UVB. The results after 15 weeks of usage have been remarkable! – about 98% of the patches have gone. We just wish we had known about the success rates sooner.
    The instructions given were very clear and the service provided by Roy has been exemplary. I would recommend UVB treatments and MBS to anyone with Psoriasis.

  10. Andy

    I have suffered from psoriasis for about 25 years. It has massively effected my life. So to be brutal I could not dream of being naked in front of anyone.
    I ordered this after a flare up. It did take a while to be delivered. But I was kept up to date all the way.

    Installation was excellent. He got lost & was lovely.

    So it has made so much difference. My skin is better than ever. Still a few problems. I think next week I may be brave enough to go to the gym or even swimming.

    So thank you. It’s made a massive difference to my life😀

  11. Thea

    This has changed my life completely and given me my confidence back. I hired this canopy from MBS as I had pretty severe painful psoriasis and to my surprise I was completely clear within 6 weeks. 5 months on from treatment, I am still pretty much clear (barring a couple of tiny patches). I have just purchased my own canopy from Kevin at Much Better Skin and will use this when I get my next flare up. Amazing product, thorough knowledgable staff and good customer service. Many thanks!

  12. Amber

    I have had P since I was a child, I’m 43 now so have tried everything. I have had light treatment and M****trexate treatment on the NHS, which both worked well for me, but recently had to come off M****trexate.
    Because of Covid the outpatient waiting list for light treatment is 6 months locally with not much prospect of it getting shorter in the future.
    I took the plunge and placed an order for one of the Canopy units back in March. Kevin at MBS explained that because of a combination of Brexit and Covid their manufacturing had been seriously disrupted and that there was an 8-12 week delivery. But he has been absolutely brilliant on keeping me informed and I actually took delivery slightly sooner than planned mid-May. I also had peace of mind knowing that I could get a refund up to delivery. Anyway the service has been great and I’m now seeing the results of being able to treat myself at home. I can recommend these units to anyone who has had good results with light therapy. Kevin, I can’t thank you enough for all your help. Best Amber

  13. C Ruby

    I’ll start by saying I can’t believe how good this uvb sunbed is. Normal tanning units do nothing for my psoriasis (guttate, extremely aggressive, covering 95% of my body), however this has cleared my skin up within three weeks to 95% clear. Communication with the company has been 10/10 and delivery was excellent. Thank you – no more m****trexate for me 🙂

  14. Aaron James

    Had psoriasis since I was 5 or 6 now 22 I had my skin all under control and between stress and the fact i work in fridges it had a flare up back to the big flakes on snow on the carpet long story short I’d had uvb treatment at the hospital and high it’s 6-8 month waiting list so I came to these awesome guys and within the week or so the chap had drove all the way to the north of Scotland to drop it off and set it up now a few month later of using it now and again my skins nearly 100% clear again so thanks again guys you rock best £1600 you’ll ever spend I can guarantee that first hand 🤘😎


    I have suffered with psoriasis on and off for over forty years. I had narrowband treatment at hospital two years ago and I was psoriasis free.
    Sadly a couple of months ago it has flared up again…. and after reading about a narrowband canopy from MBS on the psoriasis forums I decided to give them a call.
    I spoke with a man called Kevin who was very helpful and explained about the canopy beds, the tubes and delivery. After consideration I placed my order for the PHILLIPS 9 TL01 TUBE canopy and it was delivered the following week by a man( sorry forgot his name.) anyway he too was very helpful in carrying my canopy upstairs and demonstrating how it worked for me.
    I am currently up to the tenth session on my canopy and my psoriasis is clearing fast.
    Many thanks to MBS and highly recommended.

  16. Daren

    I have had psoriasis for over 15 years and have tried all the creams and potions under the sun and nothing worked…. then I came across this light treatment and I’ve never been so clear in 15 years 75% of it has completely gone !! I’m still using it twice a week and reckon in a few more weeks it will be completely gone. This light treatment is trury AMAZING !!

    If your a psoriasis sufferer I would highly recommend getting one.

  17. Jason Nemits

    Canopy delivered early December and I’m clear already. Amazing results.

  18. Denise

    Well you may remember I bought one of your machines my son Noel dealt with yourselves. Anyway can I just say a huge thank you to you all, purchase and delivery all went well. As for helping my skin well wow what a difference. As someone who suffers with my skin the effects it has on my confidence and well being is considerable, so just seeing improvements is such a boost. So many many thanks.
    Kind Regards

  19. Sarah

    Hi Kevin,

    Just a note to say thanks very much for organising the delivery of the uvb lamp to St Mary’s in the Isles of Scilly. It was a bit of a hassle but we got there in the end! Ian has starting using it and is seeing some improvement already.

    I’m happy to recommend your services if required.

    Kind regards,

  20. H Pearce

  24. M

    Quick & very safe delivery, contacted me to arrange a suitable day, brought the unit into my house (up the stairs) and offered to set it up for me. Also gave a demonstration and decent explanation of the product. Would highly recommend, thank you.

  25. Janette Walters

    Item as described, exelent service quaulity product

  26. john orr

    If you need this type of product you can buy with confidence from Much Better Skin

  27. Kevin W

    Excellent in everything

  28. Spyros

    My son has benefitted tremendously from the daily exposure to uvb narrowband.
    Before I bought this excellent product, we had to go twice a week to the hospital for one minute sessions.
    Now I have it in my bedroom, at a corner and it is very easy to use.
    The packaging made the transport cost very expensive but worth the money, the wooden box provided an excellent protection.
    I would prefer a digital timer for better accuracy.
