Psoriasis

How can I treat Psoriasis?

If you have psoriasis then you know how frustrating it can be to deal with symptoms such as chronic itching, soreness, and flaking. Although there is no known cure for psoriasis, it can be effectively managed and controlled. So if you’re wondering – how can I treat psoriasis, we provide some helpful information below.

What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a common skin disorder that is caused by an overactive immune system. It is characterized by the presence of thick red, scaly patches on the skin, which are usually found around the ears, as well as on the scalp, knees, and elbows. The scaly patches are the result of inflammation, and the rapid multiplication of the skin cells,which eventually build-up on the surface.

How can I treat psoriasis?
The treatment for psoriasis depends on the degree of severity. Treatment options can range from topical treatments such as steroids and retinoid, to laser therapy.

The XTRAC excimer laser system is FDA approved for clearing psoriasis. It reduces the symptoms of the skin disorder, and shortens the length of the outbreak. XTRAC laser therapy can be used to treat various forms of psoriasis that do not respond to topical medications.

How the XTRAC laser treats psoriasis
Psoriasis is an inflammatory condition and the XTRAC laser treats it by suppressing the inflammation. The laser delivers highly concentrated narrow-band ultraviolet light to the affected areas, and this breaks up the cells and clears the patches on the skin.

A single XTRAC laser treatment takes 5-10 minutes, and 10-12 treatments are recommended.
