Psoriasis affects approximately 1% – 3% of the U.S. population.* The condition occurs when skin cells multiply at a rate much faster than normal. According to recent research, an abnormality in the immune system could be the cause of psoriasis. The abnormality can run in families and may skip a generation.

Characterized by raised, red plaque and white scales, psoriasis can occur on elbows, knees, scalp, the torso, palms and the soles of the feet. The visible symptoms of psoriasis can spread from a small area to cover much of the surrounding tissues. The condition can come and go. Emotional trauma, such as the end of relationship or the loss of a loved one, as well as certain medications can trigger an outbreak.

Moderate psoriasis covers 3% of a patient’s body. Severe cases cover more than 10% of a patient’s body. Regardless of the severity, the red, thickened skin of psoriasis can lead to other problems. In many cases, the disfigured skin can impact a person’s self-worth and cause them to avoid social interaction and even intimacy.

There is no cure, but treatment is available. The Excimer 308 has already helped countless patients around the world keep psoriasis symptoms at bay.

Heralded as the only handheld, monochromatic UVB therapy system worldwide, the Excimer 308 gives your practice numerous advantages:

  • Optimal wavelength of 308 nm with clinically proven effectiveness
  • More flexible than excimer lasers
  • 16 cm2 spot size for quicker treatments of large areas
  • Variable power densities
  • Treat any area of the body

Until a cure is found, patients struggling with psoriasis can rely on caring providers who possess the knowledge and technology needed to improve one’s quality of life.
