Vitiligo is a medical condition in which the skin loses pigment. While some patients have minimal loss of color in just a few areas, others experience a more extreme loss of color in many areas of the body. Vitiligo can occur in any area of the body, hair may also lose pigment. While sometimes the skin may return to normal on its own, others may need intervention. At Skin MD we offer XTRAC laser treatments to help repigment the skin and return color. Call us today for a private consultation to see how this treatment may benefit you.
XTRAC treatments can minimize and, in many cases, even eliminate Vitligo depigmented patches. The XTRAC [308 nm] excimer laser delivers a targeted beam of UVB light and only the areas of skin affected by Vitiligo receive the laser energy.
Though the laser spot size measures only 18mm x 18mm, due to rapid exposure times, relatively large, discrete areas can be treated in just five to 10 minutes, which is much quicker than the duration of conventional phototherapy light sessions. And most importantly, XTRAC treatments achieve complete response rates faster in a higher proportion of patients.
