"The excimer laser, best know for its use in eye surgery is now being used to treat psoriasis. Of those who complete the study 84% showed at least a 75% improvement in 10 or fewer treatments."

"The new news is the VTRAC Excimer laser which is a targeted beam of light which allows for precise phototherapy of the psoriatic plaque."

How It Works

Using a precise wavelength excimer lamp the VTRAC system is designed to treat Psoriasis patches quickly and effectively. Because it concentrates light on patches, VTRAC allows your health care professional to deliver the high therapeutic doses necessary for rapid clearing without risk to healthy skin.

The Development of VTRAC

For decades, dermatologists have used ultra-violet light therapy for the effective and safe treatment of many skin disorders, including Vitiligo and 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, developed the excimer technology to produce a monochromatic wavelength (308nm) of ultraviolet light known to positively impact the Vitiligo and Psoriasis healing processes.

Backed by Science

VTRAC has been cleared by the FDA and cited in over 45 clinical studies and research programs with findings published in peer-reviewed medical journals around the world. PhotoMedex Excimer therapies are also endorsed by the National Psoriasis Foundation and the technology is part of the approved clinical protocols recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. Over 2 million excimer treatments have been performed by leading dermatologists around the world and with excellent patient results.

Clinical Studies on VTRAC

VTRAC 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 VTRAC:

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 VTRAC 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 treatment to be well tolerated and effective in treating thick, scaled plaques on the knees and elbows, which are often resistant to treatment."

Effective treatment of scalp psoriasis using the excimer (308nm) laser From Johns Hopkins at Green Spring Station

Published by the Journal of Photodermatology, Photoimmunology & Photomedicine

"The VTRAC is a successful approach to treatment of psoriasis of the scalp in that it is a simple treatment that can be performed in a short period of time and which has a high rate of effectiveness. All patients in the study noticed improvement in their scalp psoriasis and 49% of the patients obtained a greater than 95% improvement."
