Important Information

Important Information

Important information which not all websites tell you, make an informed decision before purchase.

If you are currently receiving treatment in Hospital & are considering the purchase of your own home Phototherapy unit, look at the Hospital Lamps being used. Ask your dermatologist which Lamps he/she would recommend for the unit being purchased. I think the answer will be Philips in both instances.

Do not settle for substitute lamps, insist on Philips.

Some websites will give medical research quoting Philips Lamps. At the same time they do not offer these Lamps in the units they sell. Ask yourself WHY?

Some websites will claim to offer the identical treatment as Hospitals. Hospitals only use Philips Lamps. If the units they supply do not contain Philips Lamps how is this possible? All Lamps made by Philips are branded Philips Lamps. Insist on Philips, the only UVB Narrowband Phototherapy Lamps that are certified to be the safest on the skin. Hospitals would never use unbranded, unproven Lamps. N.B. Philips do not supply medical lamps to unqualified traders.

If a website claims to supply Hospitals ask them to name one Hospital as an example.

You may find a DUBIOUS website offering UVB Narrowband Lamps, quoting Hospital specification, Hospital standard or medical Lamps. (You may even see a video showing a¬†picture of a Philips Lamp) They may even state working in partnership with Philips and say words like “Philips Electronic Ballasts” thus misleading people to belive that they also supply Philips Lamps. Do not assume these units/Lamps will be Philips. Be aware, There are on the market, cheaper imported, unbranded substitute Lamps with an unknown UVB content, which are not to hospital specification. Do not compromise insist on Philips Lamps with proven technology.

More than 400 independent clinical studies around the world have shown that Philips UVB Narrowband (TL/01) Phototherapy Lamps are the most effective Lamps currently available for the treatment of Psoriasis & Vitiligo as well as less common skin diseases.

If you have any questions always make sure you speak personally with a consultant. Do not settle for an answer machine; call center or leaving messages on line, BE ALERT. This Should “Ring Alarm Bells”, see FAQ If you ring Skinmattersbristol a member of staff will always answer your call or email if preferred. If you ring a company that never answers the phone, or you email a question but they never reply, ask WHY?

Answer: They want you to order on line without you having full knowledge of the product you are about to purchase.

Invest in a specialist product, it can be tempting to buy cheaper.

Why gamble with your health?
