XTRAC Laser for Psoriasis, Vitiligo, Atopic Dermatitis
For our patients who suffer from mild to moderate psoriasis, vitiligo and atopic dermatitis (eczema), we have a treatment at Southside Dermatology in Jacksonville FL to significantly improve the appearance of the skin with XTRAC laser. The XTRAC laser is FDA cleared to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis. It is a safe and effective treatment that targets skin lesions to heal the skin and prevent future outbreaks. It uses a targeted wave length of 308nm to effectively clear the skin while leaving healthy skin undamaged.
How does the XTRAC Laser Work?
The XTRAC laser directs concentrated laser light directly into a targeted area. The high-exposure energy from the laser treats only the affected area and will not damage the surrounding area. Treatment times can vary from 5-30 minutes depending on the amount of damaged skin that needs to be treated. The procedure is generally free from discomfort. After the procedure, your skin may feel as though you have a mild sunburn, or may be red and itchy. These side effects will subside within a few days. You will start to see your results after just a few sessions.
Candidates for XTRAC Laser treatment are typically those with mild to moderate psoriasis and vitiligo that have been previously treated, unsuccessfully, with topical of systemic medications. Dr. Mary Pentel at The Spa and Laser Center in Jacksonville FL can tell you whether you would be a good candidate for XTRAC Laser Treatment.
