Psoriasis Laser Therapy

Inflammatory in nature, psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder that produces red, itchy patches marked by silvery scales. It can flare up unpredictably and cause considerable social inhibition and lowered levels of self-confidence. The most common areas affected are the scalp, elbows, knees, hands and feet. Psoriasis is also linked to arthritis and joint pain. Although there are many creams, gels and ointments prescribed to contain the ailment, few of these are effective enough to provide significant relief.

Psoriasis sufferers have good reason to be hopeful of late, however, thanks to the groundbreaking technology of the XTRAC Velocity Laser. In just 8-16 sessions over the course of 4-12 weeks, the XTRAC can reduce or even eliminate the debilitating symptoms of psoriasis for months at a time. The procedure entails focusing UVB energy rays on the target skin regions while completely sparing healthy nearby tissue.

Vitiligo Laser Therapy

The loss of one’s skin pigment can trigger immense disorientation and distress, as it may cause one to stand out for excessive scrutiny. Vitiligo is a disorder in which the body’s melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) die, resulting in patches of white skin covered by white hairs. The progressive disease affects roughly 50 million people in the world and does not discriminate along the lines of age, gender or ethnic background. At PPSD, we offer XTRAC Excimer laser therapy, one of the most promising treatments for Vitiligo on the market. Over the course of 6-30 ten-minute sessions, selective light wavelengths are employed to stimulate melanocyte pigment output, resulting in a reduction, and in some cases, total reversal, of discoloration and irregularity.

Spider Vein Therapy

Spider veins get their name from their resemblance to arachnids’ long, spindly legs. These unsightly and sometimes painful branched capillaries appear mostly in the legs and thighs, and are increasingly present as an individual ages. Because of their dark appearance, they are quite difficult to conceal and may cause social discomfort or embarrassment. Common risk factors for spider veins are genetics, standing for long periods of time, and hormonal changes. Laser therapy is among the most successful and popular methods of treating spider veins and has been in use for over three decades.

During the procedure, beams of focused energy are directed at the veins, obliterating their pigment while preserving the integrity of surrounding skin tissue. In time, the entire vein is reabsorbed into the body, leaving the surface skin beautifully smooth and attractive.

The spider vein laser procedure takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes per session, with 2-5 being the average number of treatments needed to see significant improvement. Treatment is virtually pain-free and requires no downtime.
