It has a light face of around 22inches and contains two 311nm Philips PL01 medical UVB narrowband lamps (these are a smaller version of the TL01 lamp and have the same properties in terms of light therapy as all Philips 311nm UVB narrowband lamps.

This unit is also excellent for helping improve Vitamin D levels.

The unit comes on an adjustable tripod with a light face and uses 2 Philips PL01 36w narrowband lamps (it looks like 4 lamps as each PL01 tube is a double). This is a superb unit with 2 genuine Philips 311nm PL01 medical UVB narrowband lamps making it much more effective than hand held models for larger areas of affected skin.

The swivel stand allows you to use the unit at different angles, standing up (for hands, arms, body), over a chair (for knees/ legs/ feet) or over a bed (the tri-pod stand can make it difficult to use over some divans). The unit is black with 4 minute timer and total usage counter. Can be easily taken down and stored in a cupboard when not in use.

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 after Philips produced their 311nm narrowband UVB light therapy lamps in 1988.

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 light therapy involves extremely short exposures of the skin (between 30 seconds and Max 4 minutes) to this therapeutic light, using UVB narrowband lamps to treat disorders such as Psoriasis, Vitiligo and Eczema. The same exposure regime using narrowband lamps also triggers increased Vitamin D production.

Why UVB Phototherapy at home rather than via the NHS?

UVB light therapy uses narrowband lamps to expose the skin to therapeutic n-UVB 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.

  • A UVB Light Therapy unit enables you to treat yourself at home very 4 times per week very simply.
  • 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.

10 reviews for UVB Mini Light Therapy Unit – Partial body narrowband UVB treatment for Psoriasis at home – n-UVB Phototherapy with Philips UVB 311nm narrowband lamps

  1. Jon

    I don’t want this review to be about nUVB treatment but more about the actual unit itself.

    My wife and I suffer with eczema and psoriasis respectively. No, we didn’t meet on DermatologyDating.com! We already have a 9 tube canopy at home, so we’re already familiar with the benefits of nUVB. We wanted a smaller unit for our holiday home so we could treat particularly problematic areas whilst away.

    This mini unit is ideal. It dismantles and can be stored out of the way very easily which is important as we’re short of space. The unit is built like a Sherman tank, reassuringly weighty without being heavy, and we have no doubt that it’ll be just as reliable as the canopy has been.

    The usage counter is a particularly good feature as it saves us keeping a running total on notes on our phones. By our calculations the tubes will outlive the pair of us in any case.

    The light face is very adjustable for height and turns 360 degrees both vertically and horizontally. The feet of the tripod stand can make it difficult to get close enough to sofas and beds. MBS states that some divans might be problematic but it’s worth mentioning that the issue isn’t confined just to divans. That said, I can’t think of an alternative stand.

    There was a problem with my order which was resolved courtesy, professionally, and promptly. So why mention it? Because the exemplary customer service from Roy really changed a potentially negative experience into a positive one, and only increased my already high opinion of MBS.

    All in all, I would highly recommend this unit and have no doubt that it’ll be a very formidable weapon in our arsenal against our skin conditions.

    My daughter has been suffering from severe eczema which lead to infections from scratching and scaly skin that flaked all day. We had not luck with the hospital appointment after 6 months wait. I came across this UV lamp so decided to experiment- bought a small one as we didn’t expect much. We used this in sections to cover the entire body every second day for 3 months and I can’t say how please we are with the improvements it made. Flakiness all gone and red patches diminished. Itching still persists but nothing compared to what it was before. The only thing I would criticise is the stand- very unstable and not at all flexible. It can only go up and down and no rotation is possible. We have to hold the panel up lose to my daughter’s body instead of using the stand to suit where we want to expose the skin to. Better design or buy option without the stand needed.

  3. Robert Corbett

    I have suffered with psoriasis for many years and it has always responded well to uvb light i can honestly say that this has been a great buy for me and its been even better being able to treat my skin at home highly recommended
    Thanks Rob.

  4. Michelle Jones

    The item arrived damaged (so not a good start) but the problem was quickly solved and I had a replacement cover sent to me within 5 days of raising the issue. Since then I’ve had no problems with the unit and it works well treating psoriasis both on my elbows and hands.

  5. Julie Brean

    Good morning, I purchased a UVB mini unit from you on 18 January 2018. A previous blood test in January revealed that my vitamin D level was 8.5, it should be over 50. I have been using the UVB mini unit since January according to manufacturer’s instructions. I have just had my blood re-checked for vitamin D levels. They are currently at 32, which the doctor said was remarkable. 32 is still too low, so I will have my blood re-checked at the end of June to see where the vitamin D level is. The increase is purely due to the UVB lamp. The weather to date has not been in any way amenable to getting any vitamin D from the sun. I do not have any vitamin D in my diet. So thank you very much for selling this UVB lamp. Best wishes, Julie Brean

    I ordered a mini unit on Friday Jan 26th 2018 and had received it by Monday 29th January. The light unit and stand are securely packaged in separate parcels . The sales paperwork, receipt and warranty and extra goggles are shipped separately and I received those on Saturday Jan 27th. What super fast and efficient service! Brilliant..!!

    The unit itself is very portable and on its tripod stand does not take up too much space. The manual is easy to follow and the unit has a timer and total time spent. The unit required minimal assembly and I had it assembled within 5 minutes of unpacking it, with no special tools required other than a large Philips screwdriver its pretty much a one person job to get it together.

    My psoriasis responds very well to UVB and I’m delighted that the unit comes bona fide Philips TL01 tubes as used in previous hospital prescribed treatment. I’ve already had my first 30 second use last night and I’m looking forward to the benefit of being able to manage my condition as and when it flares within the comfort of my own home.

    Thank you!.

  7. Laura

    I’m sure you receive lots of photos but just wanted to show you the progress already in just a couple of weeks of using the lamp. I’ve attached a photo of my elbow.

    The best money I’ve ever spent! I’m so happy knowing I’ll be able to attend my friends wedding in February and actually wear a dress!

    Thank you and have a merry Christmas.

  8. Alan
