How Can Lasers Treat Psoriasis?

Olansky Dermatology Associates logo

If you suffer from psoriasis, you are probably quite familiar with how frustrating this skin condition can be. Many patients fight an uphill battle to find what works to relieve their psoriasis symptoms and which treatments they can tolerate. There are pills and injections that can alleviate psoriasis, but they often come with worrisome side effects, potentially harming the liver and immune system. Topical creams, such as high-potency steroids, can bring relief for some, but they require inconvenient and messy application on a daily basis or more.

Now there is new hope for psoriasis suffers. Xtrac is a high power laser that can rapidly and effectively treat psoriasis. The following benefits can be gained when choosing Xtrac laser therapy:

  • Effective treatment: In as little as 10-12 treatment sessions, patients gain effective clearing of their psoriasis. Significant improvement can often be seen after 6 treatments.
  • Long-lasting: You can expect several months of symptom-free relief after Xtrac laser treatment.
  • Convenient treatment option: No need to deal with messy creams or follow a disciplined skin care regime each day to get the relief you need.
  • Simple, comfortable treatment: Xtrac is known for its painless and very short treatment sessions.
  • Safe: Not only is Xtrac highly effective, but it is also very safe. It can be used on patients of all ages and all skin types. FDA cleared the Xtrac laser technology for skin treatments in 2000, and it has since become worldwide market leader for psoriasis and vitligo treatment. There are no harmful side effects like those associated with invasive, systemic agents.

How does it work?

Olansky Dermatology is proud to offer the Xtrac laser to patients in the Atlanta area. Xtrac laser therapy delivers a targeted and super-narrow laser light beam (UVB band) to the areas of skin that are affected by plaque psoriasis. Since it focuses light on active lesions, Xtrac allows us to deliver the necessary therapeutic doses for rapid clearing without any risk to your healthy skin. It is effective for all affected areas of the body, including the scalp, knees and elbows.

To learn more about how you can send your psoriasis into remission with just a handful of painless laser treatments, please call our office. Most major insurance companies cover the Xtrac laser for psoriasis treatment.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I have had excellent experience at Olansky Dermatology. Dr Burger is meticulous and thorough and has a most pleasant and calm manner. I have every confidence in her and this office.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
