    Product family information

    Nowadays the preferred radiotherapy treatment of skin diseases like psoriasis is through the use of the ‘B’ bandwidth of the UV spectrum, since this requires no photo-sensitizing agent. But some patients do not respond to UVB treatment, hence a UV lamp with an ‘A’ bandwidth of the UV spectrum is used, and here Philips offers a choice of either a TL or the more compact PLS/PLL lamps. Both are ideal for when the ‘B’ bandwidth of the UV spectrum is ineffective. These (PUVA) lamps have a wavelength of between 315 to 380 nm and are not only used for the treatment of psoriasis but are also commonly used for more than 20 other diseases.

    Benefits

    Optimal spectrum for PUVA therapy

    Features

    Emission peak at 350 nm

    Applications

    Psoriasis, Parapsoriasis, Vitiligo, Atopic Dermatitis, Mycosis fungoides

    Warning & Safety

    A lamp breaking is extremely unlikely to have any impact on your health. If a lamp breaks, ventilate the room for 30 minutes and remove the parts, preferably with gloves. Put them in a sealed plastic bag and take it to your local waste facilities for recycling. Do not use a vacuum cleaner.
