Clinical Studies on XTRAC

XTRAC has been cited on over 45 clinical studies and research programs with findings published in peer-reviewed medical journals around the world. Two specific studies about XTRAC:

Efficacy of the 308-nm excimer laser for treatment of psoriasis:
Results of a multicenter study

From the Departments of Dermatology and Public Health Sciences, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem; Dermatology Associates, Encinitasc; Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, New York City; Lehigh Valley Dermatology, Bethlehem; and Johns Hopkins at Green Spring, Lutherville.

Published by the American Academy of Dermatology

Of patients meeting clinical study protocol requirements:

  • 84% reached improvement of 75% or better after 10 or fewer treatments
  • 50% reached improvement of 90% or better after 10 or fewer treatments

"The XTRAC appears to have considerable advantages over other available treatment modalities for psoriasis, including fewer treatments to achieve results, and the added safety of site-specific dosing without exposure to healthy skin. In addition, this study has shown the XTRAC to be well tolerated and effective in treating thick, scaled plaques on the knees and elbows, which are often resistant to treatment."

Scientific Proof

For decades, dermatologists have used ultra-violet light therapy for the effective and safe treatment of many skin disorders, including psoriasis. The medical engineers and research teams at PhotoMedex in coordination with Rox Anderson, M.D. at Harvard Medical School and Wellman Center of PhotoMedicine in Boston, created the XTRAC to produce a monochromatic wavelength (308nm) of ultraviolet light known to positively impact the psoriasis action spectrum.

XTRAC has been cited in over 45 clinical studies and research programs with findings published in peer-reviewed medical journals around the world and endorsed by the National Psoriasis Foundation.

Psoriasis patients only.

*Side Effects/Risks: XTRAC has none of the drawbacks often associated with other psoriasis treatments-such as premature aging of healthy skin, skin thinning, resistance to medication, or potential negative systemic side effects. Some patients, however, experience a reaction similar to sunburn or blistering at the site of the treated area and in some cases, an increase in pigmentation may occur.

**Results may vary, talk to your doctor about the right treatment protocol for you.
