What is XTRAC Laser Therapy?

XTRAC is a narrow-band UVB laser that is FDA approved to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, and eczema. This is a safe and effective treatment, with minimal to no pain for the patient. The XTRAC can relieve symptoms such as plaque build-up and itching, and provides long-lasting relief. Patients can expect 10-20 minute treatments, two to three times a week, for maximum results. The treatment is effective and safe, being backed by the American Academy of Dermatology and the National Psoriasis Foundation.

Our well trained and specialized laser treatment team will be happy to provide a consultation to ensure we can provide the right treatment for you and your individual needs. Please give us a call at (858) 397-5755 with any further questions or to schedule an appointment.

Am I a candidate for XTRAC?

Adults and children who have mild to moderate psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo are strong candidates. Often patients who have not seen success with topical treatments or medications are encouraged to also consider XTRAC laser therapy. This can be a great alternative option to injectable medications, although XTRAC can be used simultaneously with injectable and topical medications. Our providers will always ensure you are receiving the correct treatments. XTRAC is safe for pregnant and nursing women and children. Our providers will always ensure you are receiving the correct treatments. 

How effective is XTRAC?

Depending on the severity of the patient’s conditions, treatments will range from twenty to thirty brief treatment sessions. Patients can expect clear or significantly reduce the symptoms of the affected area. Patients may experience relief or see some results in as little as three to four treatments. The results should last several months without remission.

What are possible side effects of XTRAC lasers?

Redness, itching and warmth are possible side effects. The XTRAC is safe for patients of all ages, including kids. All side effects will be covered with you by our providers before and after treatment.

Does My Insurance Cover XTRAC Laser Therapy:

XTRAC is covered by most insurances, including Medi-Cal plans. Your insurance may require you to do step therapy first for plaque psoriasis or eczema, which may include trying topical or oral medications before being approved for XTRAC. Vitiligo is often considered a tier-one therapy, which means vitiligo patients can receive treatment without having to try other topical or oral medications. Our staff will always perform a benefits check to let you know the amount that your insurance covers, and what your exact cost for the treatment will be prior to any treatment.
