A Laser for Psoriasis and Vitiligo?

Posted on: January 24th, 2023 by Our Team

Believe it! It’s true. There is a non-invasive and safe treatment option that doesn’t include medicine that can be systemically absorbed or painful injections. Excimer laser treatment is a phototherapy used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo. It involves using a specialized laser that emits ultraviolet (UV) light at a specific wavelength, which the affected skin cells absorb. This laser treatment is typically administered in a doctor’s office or clinic. It is usually performed in several sessions to achieve the desired results.

Excimer laser treatment is a safe and effective option for individuals with skin conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Targeted treatment: Excimer lasers are specifically designed to target specific light wavelengths, allowing them to selectively target the affected skin cells without damaging surrounding tissue. This makes the treatment highly precise and minimizes the risk of side effects.
  2. Non-invasive: Unlike other forms of treatment, such as surgery or injections, excimer laser treatment is non-invasive and does not require using needles or incisions. This makes the treatment less painful and reduces the risk of complications.
  3. Quick treatment: Excimer laser treatment sessions typically last only a few minutes. This makes the treatment convenient and allows patients to return to their normal activities immediately after the session.
  4. High success rate: Excimer laser treatment is highly effective in improving the appearance of skin affected by psoriasis and vitiligo. In many cases, patients experience significant improvement in the formation of their skin after just a few treatments.
  5. Safe for all skin types: Excimer lasers can be used on all skin types, making them a safe and effective treatment option for many patients.
