Laser for Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a very common skin condition. When mild to moderate cases don’t improve with topical medications, treatment with an Excimer
Laser is an excellent alternative. Psoriasis is an inflammatory condition. Ultraviolet light treatments have been improved over the
last few decades to suppress this inflammation. Delivering this specific form of light (“narrow band ultraviolet B 308nm) with a laser
only to the affected areas allows for faster treatments and fewer treatment sessions. Side effects are diminished as normal skin is
spared (unlike full body treatments). Treatments take 5-10 minutes, are pain free, and optimally are performed 2 or 3 times a week.
Many patients have significant improvement in several weeks with remissions lasting several months or more. Excimer laser treatments are often covered by insurance. To find out more
