These non-surgical laser procedure is a highly effective treatment for a number of unsightly skin conditions, including vitiligo, psoriasis, and dermatitis, and can treat these conditions without the need for messy topical ointments or creams.

How Does the XTRAC Laser Work?
This incredibly precise laser treatment is one of the most exciting new ways to treat a variety of troublesome skin conditions, and we’re excited to offer it here at JUVA Skin & Laser Center in NYC. A fiber-optic delivery system is used to pass a highly focused beam of ultraviolet B (also known as UVB) light into the skin, with such precision that the treatment area will be impacted, but nearby skin cells will be left untouched.
A highly specific band of UVB light is then used to reduce inflammation in the skin, while also resolving psoriasis plaque and helping to clear up the skin. The device is hand-held, meaning it’s easy for us to reach areas that might normally be tougher to reach, such as the elbows, the knees, and the scalp. The process is quick and mostly painless, and only takes about 10 to 20 minutes to complete.
Most patients see their best results after about 10 sessions or less, and we typically recommend spacing treatments out by about two weeks. Some patients even see results after their very first session, and all with little to no discomfort and no downtime. You’ll experience some light redness in the treatment area, and will need to be careful with sunscreen and UV exposure.
What Can the AURORA Laser Treat?
The FDA cleared Aurora diode laser helps to treat conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, and other UV disorders. This laser uses UV phototherapy to emit uniform energy to the treatment area to help destroy abnormal proliferation of skin cells. It also helps to stimulate melanin production which is most beneficial for increasing skin pigmentation for patients with vitiligo.
