Your skin is one of the first aspects of your appearance someone notices during a first impression. Unsightly skin conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo and eczema can cause you to feel subconscious and treatments often involve messy topical ointments. The XTRAC® Excimer Laser can clear your skin of psoriasis lesions and other conditions through a series of laser treatments at our Manhattan dermatology office.
The XTRAC® laser is FDA-approved to treat psoriasis, as well as vitiligo and certain variations of eczema. XTRAC® treatments can successfully clear patches of your skin affected by your condition without damaging adjacent healthy skin. The laser uses a focused beam of light dispensed through a fiber-optic delivery system. The concentrated light involves a band of ultraviolet B (UVB) decrease inflammation and resolve psoriasis plaques. XTRAC® laser therapy uses 308-nm of UVB light to effectively clear skin.
This laser treatment allows our dermatologist to utilize focused phototherapy and achieve great results quickly, while conserving nearby skin tissue. The hand-held device makes it easy to target hard-to-treat areas such as your knees, elbows and scalp.
The XTRAC® Laser offers an array of benefits including:
- Clear skin with long-lasting results
- Treatments are done within 10-20 minutes
- Visible results in 10 sessions or less—some patients could see a noticeable improvement after just one session
- Fewer sessions required than other laser treatment options
- Little to no discomfort during treatment sessions
- Insurance plans typically cover the cost of XTRAC® laser therapy
