Psoriasis occurs when the life cycle of skin cells malfunction. Instead of the cells living, reproducing, dying, and shedding off, the cells focus on uncontrolled reproduction. As a result cells begin to rapidly accumulate, creating thick, scaly rashes that can become quite irritating and unpleasant to look at. The most common type of Psoriasis is Plaque Psoriasis. This condition features white or red scaly rashes that can be itchy and painful. These symptoms are chronic and often vary in severity from time to time.
So what can be done about Psoriasis? Unfortunately Psoriasis has no established cure that will permanently stop the condition but there are various treatment options available. Since Psoriasis can be so diverse from case to case, treatment effectiveness will vary. Some of the most common Psoriasis treatment options include: topical creams, prescription drugs, and old home remedies. These treatments are more traditional and can often be ineffective and costly. Plus many treatment options have harmful risks like: premature aging of the skin, skin thinning, or systemic side effects. One of the new rising treatments now available is the XTRAC Excimer laser treatment. This treatment uses UVB photo therapy to deliver fast, long term relief to Psoriasis symptoms without the risk of many harmful side effects.
What is XTRAC Excimer Laser Treatment?
The XTRAC Excimer laser system uses concentrated light beams to deliver monochromatic UVB light. The intense UVB light is produced through a handheld device that is gently navigated over the affected skin. As the XTRAC laser penetrates the skin it creates a warming sensation that soothes the symptoms of Psoriasis. This revolutionary phototherapy approach has been shown to dramatically improve Psoriasis in only a few sessions, as well as providing some patients complete remission within 10-20 treatment sessions. Some remissions have even lasted for up to 6 months.
Benefits of XTRAC Excimer Laser Treatment
There are few treatment options available that can deliver the fast, effective results that are commonly seen with XTRAC. This FDA approved treatment has been proven to work in over 45 clinical trials and has been performed more than 2 million times around the world. Plus, XTRAC is pain free aside from potentially causing a sunburn-like sensation. If you have been battling Psoriasis and are looking for the one treatment to bring order back to your skin for long durations of time, ask your dermatologist about XTRAC Excimer laser treatment.
