UVB Lamp for Psoriasis on Hands

 

Psoriasis on the hands can be painful and incredibly difficult to control purely due to the amount we use our hands in everyday life. For this reason, many of the common psoriasis treatments such as topicals, fall short of the mark when it comes to treating psoriasis of the hands. Light therapy is a proven method of treatment for pustular psoriasis on the hands, as well as other types of psoriasis, which is why we offer the highest quality UVB light technology available on the market.

Whilst there is no cure for psoriasis on the hands, here at MBS, we supply therapy units for domestic use which utilise the same market leading technology that you will find in hospitals or care centres, offering you effective treatment which will enable you to take control of your condition. Our range of Philips Narrowband Tubes are medically approved to offer those struggling with psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema and scleroderma the opportunity to benefit from some of the best treatment for psoriasis on the hands – all from the comfort of your own home.

We provide UVB lamps in the form of hand held devices and mini units, full body coverage UVP canopies for moderate to severe cases of psoriasis, and hospital style UVB cabinets for the most severe cases – so there is something for everyone at MBS.

Like all forms of psoriasis, psoriasis of the hands is not contagious. In fact it works just like any other form of the condition, and is caused by a malfunction in the body’s immune system.  Essentially the body triggers an autoimmune response incorrectly, which activates a repair mechanism. In normal circumstances this response would be activated to heal the skin, say for example in the event of sustaining a lesion or cut.

However, in the case of psoriasis, this response throws up new complications. Skin cells are normally produced by the body in a process in which the new cells develop at the deepest (innermost) layer of the skin. As a new cell develops, cell layers above are pushed upwards towards the uppermost layer of the skin. When skin cells reach the uppermost layer, they die and flake off, and this is how skin is grown. This process takes between 3-4 weeks from the new cell developing to the cell dying and flaking off on the outermost layer

 

With psoriasis the immune system goes into hyperdrive and this process of cell regeneration completes in 3-7 days rather than the normal 3-4 weeks. The psoriasis skin cells reaching the surface do not have time to mature properly, and as a result build up swiftly on the surface as patches of inflamed flaky skin, easily susceptible to irritation.

 

Due to the amount we use our hands in everyday life, psoriasis on the hands can be painful and more difficult to manage than when it flares up on other parts of the body. For this reason, many of the common psoriasis treatments such as topicals, fall short of the mark when it comes to treating psoriasis of the hands. Light therapy is a medically proven method of treatment for psoriasis on hands, it’s well established and effective.

Psoriasis is not a curable condition; however, the symptoms can be treated, and in some cases, psoriasis can be controlled with the correct remedy. There are in fact a number of possible psoriasis treatments on the market, including lotions, tablets and injections, but by far one of the most popular treatments for psoriasis on the hands is light therapy.

If you’re looking for reliable home treatment for psoriasis on the hands, please consider our hand held units,  which use the market leading Philips Narrowband UVB tubes.

It’s important to understand that whilst psoriasis can spread from one part of the body to another, including the hands – it is not a contagious condition. Psoriasis is an immune system disease, which means that it can get worse, especially without treatment, and this can lead to the condition spreading to new parts of the body.

Psoriasis cannot be spread through contact, including itching, and so those who develop psoriasis on their hands, or any other part of the body have not done so through contact with another psoriasis sufferer or through contact with a part of their own body affected by the condition.

When your condition flares, having one of our hand held units enables you to treat yourself immediately. Treating the flare as swiftly as possible can dramatically improve your management of the condition often resulting in the psoriasis spreading less and reducing the time that the flare lasts.
