XTRAC – Excimer Laser
The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery is proud to be one of very few dermatology practices to offer advanced XTRAC Excimer Laser treatments to our patients. It is an excellent choice for improving the symptoms of psoriasis and vitiligo, which can sometimes be quite resistant to conventional treatment.
The XTRAC® 308 nm excimer laser delivers an intense beam of focused laser light, making it optimal for targeting chronic hand, foot and scalp eczema and Vitiligo.
The excimer laser is optimal for targeting difficult anatomical areas such as the hands and feet.
The XTRAC laser offers targeted treatment for atopic patients with resistant lesions unresponsive to traditional therapies.

XTRAC/ Excimer Laser – The Clear Choice for Psoriasis Treatment
XTRAC Excimer Laser is the only clinically proven and FDA cleared device of its kind that clear skin of psoriasis. It works quite effectively and many patients see significant improvement with lengthy periods of remission. The XTRAC laser delivers precisely targeted UVB energy to the stubborn psoriatic plaques. Because of the Excimer laser’s ability to treat only affected skin, normal skin remains free of treatment and hence is less likely to incur undesirable side effects that conventional treatment may cause.
Although it may take multiple individual treatments with the Excimer laser, the results can be quite spectacular and can achieve what no topical medication can replicate. The safety profile is outstanding, and, in particular, the Excimer can help to avoid the need for more costly and potentially dangerous systemic treatment. What does all of this mean to you? It means that you can enjoy more good days and fewer bad ones thanks to predictable and constant results.
The benefits of XTRAC Excimer Laser treatment include:
- It is covered under most medical insurance policies
- Treatment sessions are quick, convenient, and painless
- Enjoy relief from symptoms with no cumbersome daily routine or messy creams
- Most patients remain free of symptoms for several months
- Reduction of symptoms is typically achieved with just ten to twelve comfortable treatment sessions
Clearing Psoriasis of the scalp with XTRAC/Excimer Laser
Psoriasis occurring on the scalp does not respond well to therapeutic UVB lamps because the hair acts as a shield. XTRAC allows the clinician to separate the hair manually while directing the light beam to affected areas. This simple technique has achieved excellent results with treatment times averaging just fifteen minutes for the entire scalp.
Backed by science, the XTRAC® laser has been clinically proven safe and effective in patients with scalp psoriasis, who have previously failed intense topical therapy.
Clinical Results showed improvement in all patients:
- 94% of Patients Achieved ≥ 50% Clearance
- 49% of Patients Achieved ≥ 95% Clearance
Enjoy Beautifully Even Skin with XTRAC/Excimer Laser for Vitiligo Treatment
- Safe, Highly Effective, and Virtually No Side Effects
- Does Not Suppress the Immune System Systemically
- Can treat any area on your body including face, neck, scalp, hands, feet, and arms
The depigmented white patches of skin caused by vitiligo can be improved remarkably with XTRAC laser therapy. UVB light is selectively targeted to reach the depigmented skin without affecting the surrounding healthy skin.
The small size (18mm square) of the laser beam enables precision treatment while allowing a large area to be treated in just minutes. There is really nothing as effective as the Excimer laser to treat vitiligo.

Clinical Study Results
A chart review was conducted in June of 2016 of children with vitiligo who received treatment with a 308-nm laser in the first half of the year
In 2021, the long-term outcomes were analyzed through chart review addressing pigmentation retained at later office visits
Average repigmentation was 86.7% for the face, 80% for the body, and 61.7% for the extremities
After an average of 3.38 years of follow-up, repigmentation was noted to be retained in 80% of facial, 40% of the body, and 20% of extremity lesions
