Excimer Laser Therapy

At Beacon Dermatology, we’re proud to offer cutting-edge treatments for a wide range of skin conditions, including psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, and more. One of our leading-edge technologies is Excimer Laser Therapy, a highly effective treatment option that delivers targeted phototherapy for precise and efficient skin clearance.

What is Excimer Laser therapy?

Excimer Laser Therapy harnesses the power of a precisely focused beam of narrowband ultraviolet B light to target specific areas of the skin affected by various dermatological conditions. By delivering high-energy light to affected areas while sparing healthy surrounding tissue, Excimer Laser Therapy promotes reduction of skin inflammation resulting in improvement of skin rashes and skin pigmentation.

Conditions treated with Excimer Laser therapy

  • Psoriasis: Excimer Laser Therapy effectively targets localized psoriatic plaques, reducing inflammation, and promoting clearer skin with fewer treatments compared to traditional phototherapy.
  • Vitiligo: Excimer Laser Therapy stimulates melanocyte production in depigmented areas, helping to restore skin pigmentation and improve the appearance of vitiligo patches.
  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis): Excimer Laser Therapy can provide relief from symptoms of stubborn focused eczema, including itching, redness, and inflammation, by targeting affected areas with precise doses of UV light.

Benefits of Excimer Laser therapy

  • Precision: Excimer Laser Therapy allows for precise targeting of affected areas, minimizing exposure to healthy skin and maximizing treatment efficacy.
  • Fast Results: Many patients experience significant improvement in their skin condition after just a few sessions of Excimer Laser Therapy, with visible results often noticeable within weeks.
  • Minimal Side Effects: Excimer Laser Therapy is well-tolerated by most patients and typically involves minimal discomfort and downtime.

How many phototherapy sessions are needed to achieve my desired results?

Excimer laser therapy can be used any part of the body and is especially helpful for difficult locations, such as the scalp, elbows and knees.
