Excimer Laser Therapy is used to treat skin diseases including psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis. Excimer laser is a gentle and painless phototherapy laser shown to be effective in treating these difficult-to-treat conditions.
The excimer laser is different from cosmetic lasers that are usually associated with pain during treatment and post-treatment downtime for the patient. Instead, the Excimer laser delivers a highly energetic but painless beam of UVB light directly to the psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis patches through a hand piece that rests directly on the patient’s skin. It features advanced technology to precisely target only the affected skin and spare the surrounding healthy tissue from exposure. There is no downtime for the patients.
Excimer laser is changing the way patients manage their psoriasis and is helping them achieve rapid clearing and long remissions. The laser therapy can effectively treat stubborn plaques including knees, elbows, palms, soles, and scalp, even those that have not responded to other treatments. Patients come in two to three times each week for a quick treatment session that usually takes only 5-10 minutes each, for an average of 6 weeks. Patients begin to see results after only a few sessions and enjoy much greater self-esteem and a higher quality of life. Patients usually enjoy several months of treatment-free remission and appreciate being freed from the burden of applying steroids several times everyday.
