Psoriasis Treatment with Xtrac Excimer Laser

Psoriasis

Millions of Americans have psoriasis, a skin condition that causes raised red patches and a white buildup of dead skin cells in a variety of body areas. There are a variety of types of psoriasis – including plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic – which can manifest on the elbows, lower back, knees, scalp, groin, breasts, or even over the entire body. Psoriasis is a chronic disease caused by the body’s immune system mistakenly commanding the growth of excess skin cells. This condition is not contagious. Psoriasis typically flares up, goes, away, and comes back again on a repetitive basis. Stress, injuries to the skin, medications, and genetics may be contributing factors to the development of psoriasis.

At Silverberg Surgical & Medical Group, we offer multiple psoriasis treatments including Levia, a photodynamic therapy treatment using beams of light to alleviate symptoms. After a series of Levia treatments, patients may see a significant reduction in the discomfort and appearance of psoriasis. Please contact our practice for more information on Levia and the treatment of common skin conditions such as psoriasis.
