After successfully treating hundreds of psoriasis patients with the Excimer laser, Lehigh Valley Dermatology is proud to announce the addition of the next generation of this device, the PHAROS EX-308.
The Pharos is a high powered and versatile excimer laser designed to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and leukoderma.
The EX-308 excimer laser creates a concentrated, but painless, beam of ultraviolet light that is delivered to psoriatic lesions through a handpiece. By targeting only active lesions and limiting exposure to healthy skin, the laser delivers high-dose treatment for fast clearing and long remission.
The laser is ideal for treating mild to moderate psoriasis. Traditionally hard-to-treat areas such as knees, elbows, and scalp are easily treated, thanks to the laser’s aiming beam and adjustable spot size handpiece. The targeted high-dose therapy can treat stubborn plaques, even those that have not responded to other treatments.
For patients who have failed traditional psoriasis treatments, laser is often the last hope. A customized series of treatments are painless and take only a few minutes, twice a week, for a few weeks. Many insurance companies cover the laser treatment, but coverage levels will vary by plan. Please ask us about yours.
Additionally, Dr. David B. Vasily serves as a luminary to the company that makes this device and has contributed scientific data that has helped optimize these treatments.
