Since receiving FDA clearance the VTRAC Excimer treatments have come to be recognized by dermatologists worldwide as the market leader for the treatment of Vitiligo and Psoriasis.

VTRAC produces a highly effective, safe, and painless therapy by delivering a targeted, narrow UVB light to affected areas, resulting in effective and rapid improvement without the worry of harmful side effects of invasive, systemic agents.

Specifically VTRAC provides several key advantages when compared to other available Vitiligo and Psoriasis treatment options:

Scientific Proof

For decades, dermatologists have used ultra-violet light therapy for the effective and safe treatment of many skin disorders, including Vitligo 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 treatments to produce a monochromatic wavelength (308nm) of ultraviolet light known to positively impact the Vitligo and Psoriasis action spectrum.

Photomedex excimer treatments have has been cited in over 45 clinical studies and research programs with findings published in peer-reviewed medical journals around the world and endorsed by the US National Psoriasis Foundation.

** Side Effects/Risks: VTRAC has none of the drawbacks often associated with other Vitiligo and Psoriasis treatments-such as premature aging of healthy skin, skin thinning, resistance to medication, or potential negative systemic side effects. Some patients, however, experience a reaction similar to sunburn or blistering at the site of the treated area and in some cases, an increase in pigmentation may occur.


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."
