We are fortunate in this day and age to have more options for the treatment of plaque psoriasis than ever before. Benefit of this variety is that no two people are exactly alike with the treatments which are offered in our dermatology practices in Plano, Flower Mound, and McKinney. In assembling a diverse collection of treatment options, we are able to help more people find relief from chronic, irritating skin conditions.
Where some people will respond to topical treatments or conventional phototherapy, excimer laser treatment may be more appropriate in some cases. Taking this approach to treating psoriasis carries a time commitment, but one that is less than other traditional treatments.
Other advantages of excimer laser treatment include:
- None of the risks associated with various oral medications
- Decreased or eliminate the need for daily application of topical medication
Every person is different, and may experience individual results from psoriasis treatment. Your dermatologist at the U.S. Dermatology Partners devises a treatment plan after the careful evaluation of your skin, and thorough discussion of your history as well as your goals and needs throughout the treatment. With excimer laser treatment in our Plano, McKinney, or Flower Mound office, our patients may find that effective clearing of plaque psoriasis occurs with fewer treatments, and that remission times are extended. Each treatment session using this innovative technology is completed within just a few minutes, and is quick, convenient, and painless.
Excimer laser is also an innovative solution to vitiligo, prompting the repigmentation of skin through the delivery of precise wavelengths of light. Your dermatologist will devise a treatment plan consisting of the appropriate number of sessions, each lasting only a few minutes. In clinical studies, repigmentation after laser treatment began after 6 to 12 sessions.
