Excimer laser (Xtrac®)

An alternative modality of treatment for psoriasis and vitiligo is the excimer laser which delivers a carefully focused beam of light guided to reach a specific area. This technology concentrates light focally on psoriasis plaques or areas of depigmentation (vitiligo), allowing the operator to utilize the highest doses of light necessary for rapid clearing while minimizing exposure to healthy skin. During treatment, some patients feel warmth depending on the dose setting; however, the heat is a non-burning temperature. The feeling of heat dissipates after the laser completes the treatment in each area.

Excimer laser is particularly effective for treating difficult psoriasis areas, such as elbows, knees, and scalp. Individual results will vary depending on the body surface affected. Most patients experience significant improvement in as few as 6 to 10 treatments, and clearance in 10 to 20 sessions depending on the severity. Average remission times for psoriasis have been reported for 3.5 to 6 months.



Excimer laser treatments can minimize, and in many cases eliminate, vitiligo depigmented patches. Relatively large, discrete areas can be treated in just 5 to 10 minutes. Clinical analysis of vitiligo showed that 71.5% of facial spots, and 60% of neck and scalp areas treated, achieved 75% or greater repigmentation.
