Frequently asked questions about Philips BlueControl

We understand that you have questions about Philips BlueControl as it is an innovation in psoriasis treatment. At Philips, we have invested many years into research to develop a Blue LED Light Therapy system to treat plaque psoriasis – without the potential side effects of other medical treatments.
How does Philips BlueControl work?
Philips BlueControl is a clinically proven Blue Light LED Therapy for mild to moderate plaque psoriasis without the use of UV light and other chemical ingredients like cortisone. The treatment works by reducing the production of certain skin cells (keratinocytes)2, and by helping to control inflammation in affected skin areas3. It therefore reduces the symptoms of plaque psoriasis: redness, itchiness and scaling5
Can I use Philips BlueControl for severe psoriasis?
Philips BlueControl is clinically proven for mild to moderate plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris) patients. In a clinical investigation, 84% of patients showed improvement in their plaque symptoms5. The medical device is our first phototherapy innovation and was specifically designed with psoriasis patients in mind with localized plaques on their body. We want to offer a wearable device that is both effective and safe and that fits comfortably into daily routines. The device is small and can be held in the palm of your hand and is secured to the body using a textile strap. Each plaque should be treated daily for a 15 minute period when using Philips BlueControl Advance. If you are using Philips BlueControl then each plaque should be treated daily for a 30 minute period7.
Is it safe to use Philips BlueControl?
Studies have shown that UV-free blue LED light at a wavelength of 453 nm is non-toxic when used on the skin as recommended6. Blue LED light does not use any chemical substances, and thereby avoids the side effects medications may have. As it is UV-free, it does not have the potential risk that UV radiation has. Blue LED light stimulates natural processes in the skin2,3 and supports the body to help itself. Directly after using Philips BlueControl, it might be that the plaque and/or the skin surrounding the plaque turn a little reddish in color. This effect is due to an enhanced blood flow and is intended as it means that relief processes have been initiated in the treated skin area. In some cases, you might also experience a slight tanning of the plaque and/or the surrounding skin. This is a known possible effect and should disappear after you have stopped the treatment with Philips BlueControl.  In case the tanning disturbs you, please stop the treatment and consult your doctor.
Can I use Philips BlueControl for other skin diseases than psoriasis, such as eczema?
The special blue LED light of Philips BlueControl induces natural processes in your skin, which help to decrease inflammation, and the too rapid cell growth that is associated with plaque psoriasis2,3. The device has been clinically tested with patients suffering from plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris) on their body but not for other conditions such as eczema5.
Does Philips BlueControl work for guttate psoriasis?
The special blue LED light of Philips BlueControl induces natural processes in your skin that help to decrease the inflammation and the too rapid cell proliferation associated with plaque psoriasis2,3. The device is clinically tested with patients suffering from plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris) on their body but not for other conditions such as guttate psoriasis5.
Can Philips BlueControl be used in conjunction with Dovonex or Dovobet (or steroid creams in general)?
Please read the list of contraindications carefully in the user manual, which you can download here for Philips BlueControl and download the user manual for Philips BlueControl Advance here. It is also advisable for you to consult with your doctor before stopping or changing any current treatments or commencing with our Philips BlueControl products.
Can I use Philips BlueControl on my neck?
Philips BlueControl is designed  to be used on the extremities of the body. In several clinical investigations, 84% of patients showed an improvement in their plaque symptoms, where the device was used on their arms and legs5. The treatment on the neck was not tested. Furthermore, the strap is designed to enable the device to fit comfortably around arms and legs, this means that to attach the device around the neck could be rather difficult. To find out more have a look at our handling video above.
Can I use Philips BlueControl on my face?
Philips BlueControl is designed to be used on the extremities (arms and legs). Should you want to use the treatment on other body areas, please consult your doctor first.
Does Philips BlueControl work for the head/scalp as well?
Philips BlueControl is designed to be used on the extremities (arms and legs). In several clinical investigations, 84% of patients showed improvement in their plaque symptoms, the device was used on arms and legs. The treatment on the scalp was not tested5.
Can I use Philips BlueControl on the back?
Philips BlueControl is a UV-free Blue LED Light Therapy to treat plaque psoriasis on the body. The efficacy of the home treatment device is proven in clinical trials4,5. It is a wearable device and can be applied to the body using a textile strap. This ensures that you stay mobile during your treatment when wearing the device on your arms and legs. Should you want to use the treatment on other body areas, please consult your doctor first. You can try the device at home with the 90-day money-back guarantee.
Psoriasis also affects my joints. Can I use Philips BlueControl for that?
We are sorry to hear that your joints are affected. The special blue LED light of Philips BlueControl induces natural processes in your skin which help to reduce inflammation and the rapid skin cell growth associated with plaque psoriasis.2,3 The device is clinically tested with people suffering from plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris) on their body and no other conditions such as psoriasic arthritis5.
Can I use Philips BlueControl on my foot soles?
Philips BlueControl is designed to be used on the extremities (arms and legs). In several clinical investigations, 84% of patients showed improvement in their plaque symptoms, the device was used on arms and legs. The treatment on the soles of the feet was not tested5.
On which skin types does Philips BlueControl work?
Philips BlueControl has been clinically proven to be efficient on skin types I-IV.
Can I use Philips BlueControl while also treating another disease?
Philips BlueControl is designed for mild to moderate plaque psoriasis for usage on extremities (i.e. legs and arms). Please refer to the Philips BlueControl user manual or the Philips BlueControl Advance user manual and read the list of contraindications.
