XTRAC Laser Therapy is an advanced treatment technique for treating the skin conditions of psoriasis. The therapy uses targeted laser energy to treat specific skin areas.
It focuses upon areas requiring treatment and helps improve troubled regions of the skin.
Would I benefit from XTRAC Laser Therapy?
If you are suffering from mild to moderate psoriasis, you may see improvement from treatment with XTRAC. It can also offer hope to those who have not responded well to systemic or topical medications.
Even those who have been using biological forms of medications often gain more control over their condition using laser therapy.
It can help clear stubborn patches of plaque psoriasis that has not been helped with medications.
How does XTRAC Laser Therapy work?
XTRAC Laser Therapy was developed by PhotoMedex to help treat patients who suffer from skin conditions like psoriasis. It was first introduced in 2000 for skin therapy.
It is the first FDA-approved laser system for treating the skin condition of psoriasis, as well as vitiligo and the atopic form of dermatitis.
Some patients may experience some warmth at times during the procedure. Patients may experience a temporary side effect similar to a mild sunburn in the hours after their treatment.
Depending upon the severity and extent of your psoriasis, treatment time may vary.
You can expect to see improvement in your psoriasis within a few treatments.
Many patients experience significant improvements in their condition with a few treatments, and remission times can last several months or longer.
XTRAC Laser Therapy can also treat parts of the body that are often hard to treat, like the knees, elbows, and scalp.
XTRAC has proven to be helpful in cases of psoriasis that extend to up to 20 percent of the skin surface.
One key to the success and importance of the XTRAC laser in treating psoriasis is that it does not involve the too frequent hazards of other forms of treatment such as an increased risk of developing malignancies and tuberculosis, and premature aging of otherwise healthy skin.
Is XTRAC Laser Therapy safe?
XTRAC therapy is quite safe compared to other forms of treatment.
There is also no skin thinning, which is typical for topical drugs. No dangerous health hazards are present, like tuberculosis and cancer.
