Psoriasis

Psoriasis appears as itchy, scaly patches (or plaques) that can get inflamed. You’ll find them most commonly on your knees, elbows, hands, feet, scalp or back, but they can show up anywhere. You might also notice it affecting your toenails and fingernails.

Our Solution

To treat psoriasis, we suggest topical corticosteroids, oral medications such as Soriatane and Methotrexate, injectable “biologics”, light therapy, and many other modalities.

XTRAC Excimer Laser

PhotoMedex developed the XTRAC® Excimer Laser to offer new hope to patients experiencing psoriasis, vitiligo, and other skin conditions. The XTRAC Laser focuses an intense beam of light on the targeted area without damaging the surrounding healthy areas. The XTRAC Laser effectively and rapidly clears the results of psoriasis, with few of the drawbacks that are common to most psoriasis treatments. A typical treatment takes just a few minutes as opposed to hours. You won’t have to apply topical creams on a daily basis or take oral medication either. Your healthy skin won’t be exposed to UV rays, so you won’t experience thinning skin or stretch marks.

Available Products

These products are offered as over the counter product for treatment of psorasis which can be purchased in our online store or in the skin care boutique at Helendale.
