UVB light therapy

Posted Fri 17 May 2019 8.37pm by Stargirl


I know that sunlight is the best way to heal my psoriasis and I have gone through cycles with the dermatology team which have proven effective but the psoriasis does return. I’m considering hiring or buying a uvb sunbed and I wondered if any of you have done this and can recommend a supplier or model? I’m based in north Worcestershire.

Thank you for reading!

I’m not to far from you, I bought a philips TL01 narrowband from much better skin MBS up north. 9 tubes cost r round £1400.00?

The guy was really helpful spoke to him several times before I committed, this is the phone number 08006120954, google them. I was very impressed with how I responded

Give them a call, and take it from there

All the best.

Hi summer,

Thank you for your reply and the information. I’ve been having a look and saw the mbs website and that the Philips tubes are good.

I’ll look into them further. Lovely to hear you had a good response.

I have just been looking at the narrow band UVB sunbed on MBS also.

Have you gone through with the purchase? I suffer with scalp psoriasis.

Kind Regards

I have invested in my own uvb sunbed having found it to be the only thing that works for me. Unfortunately in my experience the p does come back eventually but it is good to have that period of solace and feel normal for as long as it lasts. I am considering hiring out the sunbed I own for the periods that I am not using it myself. I live in Bristol and own a van so can deliver if anyone is interested
