XTRAC Excimer Laser for Treatment of Psoriasis and Vitiligo

The skin is your body’s largest organ, covering and protecting everything vital on the inside. Your skin can be susceptible to certain conditions and diseases that hinder its function and cause you irritation, problems and even embarrassment. Skin disorders like psoriasis and vitiligo can affect your life in many ways, hindering how you live your life and choose certain activities.

Olansky Dermatology Associates, with two locations in Georgia, can provide effective treatment for all kinds of skin disorders. Our talented and experienced team, led by Dr. David Olansky, uses the XTRAC Excimer Laser for the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo. Most treatment for these skin disorders begins with completely noninvasive methods like diet and lifestyle adjustments. There are also medications and skin creams that your dermatologist can prescribe.

If these options do not generate the desired results, the XTRAC laser can work wonders on skin affected by psoriasis and vitiligo. The XTRAC laser works by using highly focused beams of UVB laser light and is the first laser of its kind to be approved for the treatment of psoriasis. Because there are very few risks with the XTRAC laser, patients who are pregnant, nursing or using a variety of medications can still benefit from this treatment. It is even safe for use on children.

XTRAC Laser Treatments

Patients who come to Olansky Dermatology Associates from Roswell and the Atlanta area should expect to undergo multiple XTRAC laser sessions (typically no more than 10) to completely clear psoriasis and vitiligo. Each treatment session lasts about 20 minutes, and they are normally scheduled from one to three times a week. Your Olansky Dermatology Associates practitioner will set your schedule according to your skin type and the severity of your skin condition.

Patients of Olansky Dermatology Associates report feeling no pain or sensations during XTRAC laser treatments. This means that patients need no anesthesia, and there is no recovery time required after treatments. Some patients report feeling a bit sunburnt after treatments, with minimal redness and itching, but this subsides within a day.

While the risks associated with the XTRAC laser are minimal, patients with a family history of skin cancer should be thoroughly assessed by an Olansky dermatologist before treatments. It is possible that XTRAC laser treatments may increase the risk of developing certain types of skin cancer. Your Olansky Dermatology Associates practitioner will discuss the risks and benefits of XTRAC laser treatments in a confidential consultation before any treatments are planned or carried out.

Expert Treatment for Atlanta Area Skin Disorders

The XTRAC Laser is the only Excimer laser cleared and approved by the FDA for the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo. Patients of Olansky Dermatology Associates have seen significant improvement in these skin conditions from XTRAC laser treatments. Remissions are reportedly much longer than with other treatments, up to several months.

Olansky Dermatology Associates is your full-service dermatology solution, with locations in Roswell and Atlanta to serve a large number of area patients. Our skin disorder specialists have the latest training and a wide body of experience treating skin disorders with laser therapy. The XTRAC Excimer laser is the ideal treatment modality for those suffering from persistent psoriasis and vitiligo. Treatments are more precise than phototherapy light sessions and produce better and faster results.

If you are ready for a longer-term solution for your psoriasis and vitiligo skin disorders, call or schedule a consultation online to learn more about the XTRAC Excimer laser and how Olansky Dermatology Associates can help you find relief and freedom from persistent pain and discomfort.

Ashley A.

Mandy Ramer, NP-C was such a pleasure to meet with. She listened to all of my concerns and addressed each one with a plan that fit my needs. I am so glad I picked Olansky Dermatology. Absolutely thrilled with their service from appointment setting through check out.

Kara E.

The appointment process is quick easy and convenient online. Parking is easy enough. I got in basically right at my appointment time. I didn’t have to wait hardly at all. The doctors and nurses are nice, knowledgeable and helpful. The procedure I had was easy and I got out fast and was on my way.

Suzanne H.

This was probably the best experience I’ve ever had going to a dermatologist. Every interaction I had with the staff was pleasant and they were so helpful. I had accidentally cancelled my appointment and the girls at the front desk help me get in so I could be seen and someone could help me. Which I really appreciated, most places would have just turned me away. The doctor or pa I saw that day I can’t remember her name was lovely and took great care of me. I will be going to Olansky’s going forward. You will not be disappointed! The staff is excellent!

Coriana W.

Dr. Bender honestly changed my life around. I had extremely bad hormonal and cystic acne, and have been told for years that there is nothing I can do but wash my face and etc.. Dr. Bender gave me hope that there is hope she helped get my confidence back and now I’m finally free. She cares about her patients and takes her time with you every visit. If you need help in anything derma-logical then you really need to go to her.

Jenny S.

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.

Tamima D.

My husband is a patient of PA Sharon Doering I appreciate all she did for my spouse. She’s very down to earth & made him feel comfortable. Sharon communicated in a way that he can understand.
Thank You

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.

Cheyenne G.

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!
