Excimer Laser

Psoriasis and Vitiligo Treatment

Laser therapy uses a pinpoint laser light to target psoriasis lesions without affecting the surrounding skin. Lasers use an intense light source that penetrates deeply into the skin and delivers more energy. This means each treatment is fewer treatments are required to get the results delivered from other forms of phototherapy, such as UVB or PUVA. Lasers are particularly helpful for the treatment of psoriasis on the hands and feet, and thickened localized plaques that may be slow to respond to topical treatments, such as corticosteroids. The Excimer laser targets an intense beam of ultraviolet B (UVB) light on the lesion, triggering a slowdown in skin cell growth and inflammation.
