XTRAC treatments can minimize and, in many cases, even eliminate Vitligo depigmented patches. The XTRAC 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.
“XTRAC treatment for Vitiligo is one of the most effective and safest treatments for this sometimes emotionally devastating conditions. It uses a safe light treatment applied to the areas of depigmented skin. It is applied to the affected skin twice a week quickly and easily. One of the benefits of the XTRAC is that there is little to no downtime with the treatments. Results are often long lasting and dramatic. Treatment has been FDA approved for almost 20 years and covered by majority of insurance carriers.” – Michael Ebertz, M.D.
