XTRAC Excimer Laser

What is the XTRAC Excimer laser?

We’ve recently replaced the old Excimer laser here at Dermatology & Skin Health with a state-of-the-art XTRAC Excimer laser, which will help us to more effectively treat psoriasis, eczema and vitiligo. This FDA-cleared laser uses a sophisticated liquid light guide system to deliver a targeted, super-narrow UVB band to affected areas of the body. Treatments are highly effective, safe and painless.* The concentrated light allows the healthcare technician to deliver high doses necessary for rapid therapeutic clearing without the worry of harmful side effects of invasive, systemic agents.*

How does the XTRAC Excimer laser work?

*Individual results may vary; not a guarantee.

The XTRAC Excimer laser works by penetrating the patient’s skin and breaking up the cells that form harmful, unwanted plaques.* The treatment is proven to allow long periods of comfort and remission between outbreaks.* The working laser component of the XTRAC concentrates a single band of ultraviolet B (UVB) light ray on the patient’s psoriasis lesions. The ray penetrates the skin and “breaks the DNA of the T cells, which are what have multiplied to create psoriasis plaques.* The 308-nm wavelength is found to be the most effective in clearing psoriasis lesions.*

What are the benefits of XTRAC therapy?

  • Each treatment takes only minutes, right in our office
  • The surrounding healthy skin isn’t affected
  • In general, fewer sessions are experienced than some of the other treatments on the market
  • The therapy clears up mild to moderate plaques from psoriasis faster than natural sunlight or artificial UV light

Because of XTRAC’s concentrated light source, the XTRAC laser can focus only on the affected, plaque-laden area. As mentioned, this means that it does not affect the surrounding, healthy skin. It’s known to make it much easier to provide a remedy for hard to treat area, such as:

  • Knees
  • Elbows
  • Scalp

What can I expect from the results?

Symptoms are generally reduced within 10-12 treatment sessions.* As with any laser-based procedure, mild to moderate side effects are entirely possible when utilizing XTRAC laser therapy. Potential side effects you may notice around the treated area include:

  • Redness
  • Blistering
  • Itchiness
  • Burning sensation
  • Increase in pigmentation

But don’t let the side effects deter you; XTRAC patients by-and-large have no documented side effects, and the good news? Patients achieve almost a complete clearance with 10 in-office treatments.*
