Rediscover Your Life Without Psoriasis or Vitiligo
Today, tens of thousands of psoriasis and vitiligo patients in the United States as well as internationally have benefited from treatment with the painless XTRAC® Excimer Laser. Numerous clinical studies have shown the dramatic difference that 308nm laser light can make in enhancing patient outcomes, reducing diseased areas and improving quality of life.
Introduced in 2000, the XTRAC is the first FDA market-cleared excimer laser system for the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo. It is also cleared for treatment of atopic dermatitis and leukoderma.
Using a carefully focused beam of light delivered through a sophisticated liquid light guide device, the XTRAC excimer laser system allows the physician to deliver high dose of monochromatic UVB right to the spot of the problem for fast, effective treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo while minimizing the risk of exposure to healthy skin.

THE HISTORY: Harnessing the Natural Power of Ultraviolet Light for Effective Therapy
Psoriasis sufferers often notice that there is an improvement of their dry, scaly skin in the summer months, especially with exposure to ultraviolet light rays from the sun.
Capitalizing on this phenomenon, in the 1920’s the prestigious Mayo Clinic first introduced UVB "phototherapy" to control psoriasis. Many of the early UVB systems were primitive, time consuming and treated the whole body, including healthy skin, not just the affected area. Today, UVB therapy continues to be a standard treatment. Conventional UVB phototherapy may be used alone or in conjunction with other topical medications such as coal tar or anthralin.
UVB phototherapy has been shown to provide relatively long remission times, but the real quest was to find a way to deliver the UVB in a precise, fast manner that was easy for the physician to use and easy for the patient to undergo, within the convenience of the doctor’s office. . . and most importantly, minimizes the number of treatments required to achieve an excellent result.
Responding to this need for safe, effective and convenient therapies for skin disorders, the medical engineering and research teams at PhotoMedex worked with leading laser experts, including Dr. Rox Anderson at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, to develop the XTRAC excimer laser, a sophicated medical grade Xenon Chloride pulsed excimer that can produce a very high UVB laser output.
