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."

Skin Has an Even Chance
with XTRAC

Before XTRAC Treatment for Vitiligo 6 Months After 48 XTRAC Treatment for Vitiligo More Testimonials

Vitiligo is a skin condition which
involves loss of melanin, the primary
skin pigment, resulting in irregular
white patches.

Vitiligo is not forever.

Fortunately, XTRAC treatments can minimize and, in many cases, even eliminate vitiligo 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 5 to 10 minutes, which is much faster than the duration of conventional phototherapy light sessions. And most importantly, XTRAC treatments achieve complete response rates faster in a higher proportion of patients.

Clinical results

In one clinical study, 32 patients with 55 vitiligo patches were treated with the [XTRAC] 308nm laser. All areas were treated until 75% or greater repigmentation was achieved or for a total of 30 semi-weekly sessions, whichever occurred first.1

The final analyses showed that of 21 facial spots treated, 71.5% achieved 75% or greater repigmentation. The next best responses were attained treating neck and scalp areas, of which 60% benefited with 75% or greater repigmentation.2

Other studies have concluded that when XTRAC is used as monotherapy, repigmentation rates of more than 75% are seen in more than 50% of patients but response rates as high as 95% have been achieved, It has also been noted that repigmentation can be seen in as few as 11 treatments.3
