The team at DSA Dermatology in Plano, Texas, reinvests into the practice to ensure patients have access to state-of-the-art solutions available for their skin and body. This includes the inclusion of the XTRAC Excimer laser treatment readily available in our facility. Our doctors can discuss with patients the benefits of this service and offer it as a solution for a myriad of skin concerns.
The XTRAC Excimer laser treatment is an FDA-cleared, clinically proven treatment for conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo. The XTRAC laser uses ultraviolet B (UVB) light to target and treat the affected areas of the skin. The XTRAC laser is safe and effective and has been shown to provide significant relief from the symptoms of various skin conditions that can impact the body.
Below are just a few of the more common conditions addressed using the Excimer treatment:
This device is recommended for smaller, localized areas. It is a smaller device that the operator can point and shoot to the spots such as the scalp or areas difficult to reach, such as in body folds and more. Patients are treated two to three times a week and must have a full day in between treatments. Progress should be seen in eight to 12 treatments or four to six weeks, but for very resistant conditions, the treatment can continue for six to 12 months.
For many of our patients, insurance plans will cover treatments. However, those without medical insurance or who need to pay out of pocket will be happy to learn that we provide a wide range of financing plans and payment options to ensure these treatments are attainable.
If you are struggling with certain conditions like vitiligo and psoriasis, treatments using our XTRAC Excimer laser may be recommended. Call our practice today at (972) 362-9567 to request a consultation visit with our team. Our office is located at 5072 West Plano Parkway, Suite #150, and is open to new patients.
