No one should have to deal with skin conditions like Vitiligo and Psoriasis, and at Metro Dermatology, we want you to know that there are solutions that can help you manage these conditions. One of these is the Excimer Laser, a cosmetic laser that uses specific ranges of ultraviolet radiation to help treat these conditions.
If lotions and other treatments have been doing nothing for your skin conditions, contact us in multiple locations in New York and ask about the Excimer Laser. This form of light therapy could help to restore a youthful and lustrous appearance back to your skin.
What Is The Excimer Laser?
The Excimer Laser is a form of phototherapy that uses a specified amount of ultraviolet radiation, set at a specific frequency, in order to treat skin conditions. The intensity of the laser will set on a basis of the severity of the skin condition that needs to be treated. Multiple sessions will be need in order to achieve the greatest effects and each session should take less than an hour to be completed.
You may experience a sensation comparable to that of a mild sunburn after the treatment is completed, but it should subside within a few days. After a session is over, you’ll be free to return home or to work. It is recommended that you avoid unnecessary exposure to the sun after the treatment is over.
What can the Excimer Laser Treat?
The Excimer Laser is able to treat a variety of skin conditions with its specific range of ultraviolet frequencies, including but not limited to:
- White Scars
Patients who cannot undergo surgery will be glad to know that the Excimer Laser requires no incision into the skin. This laser can also treat areas that many other lasers cannot, such as the ears and genitals. The Excimer Laser is also available to patients of all ages, including small children.
How Do I Know If I’m Qualified?
The only way we can make sure of your qualification is through a consultation appointment, which will involve the discussion of your medical history as well as your current state of health and other information. If the practitioner performing your consultation discovers that the Excimer Laser is not for you, they’ll discuss alternatives.
