XTRAC® Excimer Laser
The XTRAC® excimer laser is the first FDA-approved laser treatment available for inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo, offering patients a safe, effective and minimally invasive solution to red, itchy skin caused by outbreaks. This advanced system delivers targeted beams of laser light through a liquid light guide to clear lesions without damaging nearby healthy skin for significant relief.
Each XTRAC laser treatment session takes only a few minutes to perform in the office, with no anesthesia needed. The laser energy can be precisely delivered to lesions nearly anywhere on the body, including previously hard-to-treat areas such as the elbows and knees. Most patients can achieve symptom relief in four to ten treatment sessions. Treatment is often covered by insurance.
Many patients are choosing XTRAC to manage their psoriasis symptoms to avoid messy topical creams, lengthy phototherapy treatments and rigorous daily skin care regimens. There are no side effects associated with this procedure, so patients can receive treatments at their convenience and return to work or other regular activities immediately after.
The results of the XTRAC treatment can last for six months or longer, with fewer treatments needed over time in order to maintain the same level of relief. We are proud to be one of the few practices in the area equipped to provide this state-of-the-art treatment option for psoriasis.
