Our Hand-held n-UVB lamp with Philips PL01 Narrowband 9w Tube treats small patches of psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema etc.The narrowband UVB light source is a 311nm Philips narrowband UVB PL01 9w tube. The unit comes with a removable comb attachment that is ideal for treating the scalp and other small areas. Simply place the light close to the affected area and use 4 or 5 times per week.
This unit is ideal for treatment where the condition is limited to small areas, for example where Psoriasis plaques are limited in small areas such as hands, joints or the scalp, or smaller areas of de-pigmentation in the case of Vitiligo.
However, the unit is not practical for treating larger areas as the unit’s light face is relatively small and you may struggle if large areas of your skin have been affected by your condition, or if any areas are awkward to reach (for example parts of your back or shoulders).
The unit is portable, we specialise in n-UVB phototherapy devices for domestic use, but our other units are designed to be used in your home and are not portable. You will be able to take this unit with you if you are travelling and thereby benefit from continuity of treatment that the n-UVB photo therapy requires.
The unit is discreet, being of a similar size to a pair of hair-tongs and presented in a small carry case, the unit can be discreetly used and stored if you are not at home. For example for Students or friends sharing accommodation.
Narrowband uvb outpatient treatment using hand-held devices is currently used within the NHS. Specifically for Vitiligo, the University of Nottingham under the auspices of the NHS performed similar trials of home based Vitiligo treatment using Hand-Held devices. They produced a sequence of videos which show you exactly how a hand-held UVB device was used to treat Vitiligo at home.
This unit is manufactured in China (we couldn’t find a UK manufacturer of a small hand held unit). However if you do your research you will see that the major players in the market, American & German have their units manufactured in China. This is an excellent unit with a genuine Philips PL01 9w UVB narrowband tube. We have been selling the light for over 5 years and it is one of our most popular products. The lamp comes with a UK plug adaptor, timer and goggles all neatly presented in a solid UPVC black plastic case for easy carrying/ storage.
At MBS we specialise in narrowband UVB phototherapy devices for domestic use. From cabinets designed to replicate those used in Hospitals and the NHS through to these hand-held units, our units will enable to manage your condition with the same treatment you would receive in the NHS in the convenience & comfort of your own home.
