Psoriasis is a chronic, recurring skin condition with no known cure. It produces red, scaly skin plaques that can cause discomfort, disfigurement and embarrassment. The lesions appear most often on the scalp, knees, elbows and on the chest, back and buttocks. Sometimes the nails are affected. The disorder can occur at any age, but is most often seen in persons 20 to 50 years of age. Social withdrawal and even depression are not uncommon among psoriasis sufferers. The second most common skin disorder in the United States, psoriasis affects an estimated 7 million Americans. The cause of psoriasis is unknown. It is not an infectious disease and cannot be transmitted from one person to another, but does tend to occur in families.
What treatments are currently available for psoriasis?
Until now, finding an effective treatment, or combination of treatments, has frustrated patients and physicians alike. You have probably tried topical medications, such as coal tar and steroids. You may have even experienced brief remissions, with lengthy sessions of phototherapy or medications.
Today, psoriasis sufferers have new hope in the XTRAC™ excimer laser treatment system. The first FDA approved laser treatment for this inflammatory skin condition, XTRAC™ is the most exciting breakthrough in years. It's a psoriasis treatment that really works and works fast.
How is the XTRAC™ excimer laser system different?
The XTRAC™ excimer laser system is light-years ahead of other psoriasis treatments. Using a carefully focused beam of laser light delivered through a sophisticated fiber-optic device, the XTRAC™ system can treat unsightly psoriatic skin plaques quickly and effectively. Because it concentrates light on active lesions, XTRAC™ delivers high-exposure doses, necessary for rapid clearing without risk of damage to healthy skin.
Who is a candidate for treatment?
Individuals with mild to moderate psoriasis can often obtain relief in just four to ten brief treatment sessions. Many patients see results after just one treatment.
How long do treatment sessions last?
Most treatment sessions last only a few minutes; in fact, less than five minutes, compared to rigorous daily skin care regimens, or weeks of phototherapy sessions.
How long will I stay free of outbreaks?
Each case is unique, but many psoriasis sufferers who have experienced XTRAC™ treatment have found that relief usually lasts for several months and is expected to last up to six months. Often remissions last as long as with conventional phototherapy, but you will probably need fewer treatments per year to remain free of symptoms.
What happens during an XTRAC treatment?
First, we test your skin to determine your optimum dosage level. Then the XTRAC™ hand-piece is moved over the affected area, applying laser light at your determined dose. Depending on the area to be treated, this only takes a few minutes.
Does it make any difference where my lesions are?
Due to its “site-specific” fiber optic delivery system, the XTRAC™ system can be used successfully on hard-to-treat areas of the body such as elbows and knees.
Is XTRAC™ treatment safe?
XTRAC™ has fewer drawbacks often associated with other psoriasis treatments, such as premature aging of healthy skin, skin thinning, or resistance to medication.
Stop suffering and start living free of psoriasis symptoms. Just a few minutes with XTRAC™ could change your life.
