XTRAC® in Miami, FL
If you are suffering from psoriasis, you may want to consider XTRAC®; one of the newest laser treatments available, and the only one specifically designed to treat psoriasis. At Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute, Melissa Troha, a board-certified physician assistant, administers XTRAC® treatments to patients from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Kendall, and the surrounding areas.
What is XTRAC®?
XTRAC® is a laser therapy device that delivers targeted beams of UVB light to skin affected by psoriasis. This treatment is popular for providing long-lasting relief of psoriasis symptoms without the daily requirements that most other treatments require. This treatment works by breaking down the DNA of T cells, which are the cells responsible for creating psoriasis plaques.
Benefits of XTRAC®
In addition to providing relief to those suffering from psoriasis, XTRAC® treatments offer the following benefits:
- Treatments only takes minutes
- The surrounding skin is unaffected
- Takes fewer sessions than other treatments
How is the XTRAC® Treatment Performed?
This non-invasive treatment uses only rays of UVB light, so it is completely pain free. During your treatment, the XTRAC® applicator is placed on the skin to be treated as the light energy is delivered to the skin. This procedure is relatively short, often being completed in under 30 minutes.
What Should I Expect from an XTRAC® Treatment?
After your treatment, you can expect a redness that resembles a sunburn that lasts approximately 24 hours. These treatments immediately begin reducing symptoms of psoriasis, although some patients need as many as 10-12 treatments to achieve their desired results.
Am I a Good Candidate for XTRAC®?
If you are suffering from psoriasis or vitiligo, you may be a good candidate for XTRAC®. This is also a good treatment for those who have tried other treatments without significant results, and are looking for a way to get relief without daily use of creams and other skincare products.
