What is XTRAC?
XTRAC light treatment is the only FDA-cleared laser that is clinically proven to slow and reverse the growth of psoriatic cells. With XTRAC psoriasis treatment, patients achieve more than 95% clearance in just over 10 treatments. It only takes approximately 6 treatments to see 75% clearance.
XTRAC has proven to be effective in treating thick and scaled plaques on both the kneed and elbows. These areas are often resistant to conventional treatments. XTRAC can also treat psoriasis on the scalp, common in about 80% of psoriasis patients.
This psoriasis treatment is usually performed three times each week at Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York. Dr. Quintana will discuss the best treatment program fit for you.
