UVB Light Treatment for Psoriasis
For many who suffer with psoriasis, effective treatment is a huge part of everyday life, and so here at MBS we pride ourselves on being one of the few UK suppliers of the market leading UVB light treatment for psoriasis at home. All of our light therapy units use the Philips TL01 Narrowband tubes, which are also commonly used in hospitals and speciality clinics as they are the most effective on the market.
Psoriasis affects 2-3% of the population, and although there is currently no cure for the condition, there are a range of treatments available that aim to control the psoriasis. The type of psoriasis you have, and the severity of it, will determine the best kind of treatment for you – so speaking with your GP before commencing with any UV light treatment for psoriasis is always advised.
Narrowband UVB Phototherapy (or n-UVB light therapy) for Psoriasis describes the most widely used phototherapy treatment. Just a small part of the UVB spectrum (light emitted largely at 311nm wavelength) is used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
n-UVB is widely accepted as being more effective and safer for treating severe psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo & polymorphic light eruption.
Phototherapy has been considered as one of the most effective treatments for psoriasis, particularly when used in conjunction with other treatments, and has a 50-90% efficacy rate in reducing symptoms in the vast majority of users. For this reason, here at MBS we supply a variety of unit options to suit all budgets and requirements, so no matter what your situation – you can benefit from some of the best treatments for psoriasis.
