Age Defy now offers a clinically proven laser therapy, the XTRAC® Excimer Laser system, for the treatment of psoriasis. Having psoriasis can be frustrating, irritating and embarrassing. We offer an approach for lasting, effective relief from the painful, unsightly symptoms of psoriasis. Many patients who have had XTRAC Therapy experience months of relief with as few as 6-10 brief treatments. The laser is effective in hard-to-treat areas such as the scalp, hands, and feet. The benefits of XTRAC Laser Therapy are superior to conventional psoriasis treatments:
- Shorter treatment time is needed – minutes instead of hours
- There is no direct UV light exposure to healthy skin
- Unlike traditional topical creams, daily care is not required
- There is no risk of the skin thinning or developing stretch marks as with steroid use
Start Living Free of the Symptoms of Vitiligo
The XTRAC® Excimer Laser system is clinically proven for the treatment of vitiligo. An estimated 1 to 2 million Americans have vitiligo. Approximately half notice some pigment loss before the age of 20. Although there is no cure, vitiligo can be treated.
The XTRAC utilizes a specific wavelength of light which stimulates re-pigmentation of the skin in patients with vitiligo. Treatment sessions last just a few minutes. The number of treatments required varies from person to person. Clinical studies with the XTRAC have shown that in some patients re-pigmentation can begin after as few as 6 to 12 treatments and successful re-pigmentation can often be obtained in fewer than 30.
Many insurance companies cover XTRAC® Excimer Laser Therapy for the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo, including Medicare, BlueCross/BlueShield and United Healthcare.
Age Defy is proud to be a leader in offering state-of-the-art technology to our patients. The availability of XTRAC Excimer Laser Therapy is the latest example of Age Defy’s commitment to medical excellence.
