Psoriasis Treatment with Pharos Excimer Laser

Psoriasis Treatment with Pharos Excimer LaserRingpfeil Advanced Dermatology, located in the Philadelphia and Main Line Pennsylvania area, is now offering Pharos laser treatments for psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and leukoderma.

Dr. Franziska Ringpfeil, a board certified dermatologist, says the laser treatment is safe and effective in removing skin plaques that may not respond to gels or creams, which could carry the risk of harmful side effects with long term use.

Typically, remission of psoriasis lasts up to 6 months after 12-20 treatments 2-3 times a week. According to RA medical systems, as few as 6 treatments are required before permanent repigmentation can be observed in some individuals with vitligo.
