We offer treatments with the Pharos excimer laser, a 308nm laser for the treatment of psoriasis, vitiligo, and other skin disorders.
Vitiligo. The Pharos utilizes a specific wavelength of ultraviolet light which stimulates the repigmentation of the skin in patients with vitiligo. Although there is no cure, vitiligo can be treated. Clinical studies with the Pharos have shown that, in some patients with vitiligo, repigmentation can begin within 6 to 12 treatments, and successful repigmentation can often be obtained in 30 treatments or less. The number of treatments needed can vary from person to person based on a variety of factors.
Psoriasis. The Pharos excimer laser can treat scaly skin plaques quickly and effectively often in just 6 to 10 brief treatment sessions. This can provide long-lasting relief, typically several months free of symptoms.
Other skin conditions. Numerous other skin conditions are responsive to the excimer 308 nm laser., including:
- atopic dermatitis
- alopecia areata
- pityriasis rosea
- cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL)
