XTRAC Laser Therapy is a type of targeted phototherapy that uses a focused beam of ultraviolet B (UVB) light. It has FDA clearance for treating psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis.  Also, it is covered by most insurances! Click here for before and after treatment pictures.

Benefits of XTRAC Laser Therapy

  • Targeted Treatment: The concentrated beam of UVB light affects only the psoriasis plaques, minimizing exposure to healthy skin. This reduces potential side effects compared to broader light treatments.
  • Effectiveness: XTRAC can lead to significant clearing of psoriasis plaques, often within a few treatment sessions. Many patients see a reduction in redness, scaling, and itchiness.
  • Relatively Short Treatment Times: Individual XTRAC sessions are brief, typically just a few minutes.
  • Convenience: While a course of treatment usually entails multiple sessions, the short session times make it easier to fit XTRAC into your schedule.
  • Safety: XTRAC is well-tolerated with minimal side effects. Occasionally there may be some temporary redness or darkening of the treated skin.
  • No Immune Suppression: Unlike some systemic medications, XTRAC does not suppress the immune system.

Side Effects/Risks: XTRAC has none of the drawbacks often associated with other psoriasis treatments-such as premature aging of healthy skin, skin thinning, resistance to medication, or potential negative systemic side effects. Some patients, however, experience a reaction similar to sunburn or blistering at the site of the treated area and in some cases, an increase in pigmentation may occur.
