Autumn is the gateway to stressful events such as going back to school and the busy holiday season.  Consequently, psoriasis flare-ups may be more common during this time of year.

"During the colder months the air can become drier, and thus dries out skin as well. The XTRAC laser provides that much needed dose of ultraviolet light to patients while also offering safe, effective and lasting results."

    The XTRAC Excimer Laser, developed by PhotoMedex, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHMD), an innovator of medical devices, is the only clinically proven, FDA-cleared dermatology excimer laser with independent safety and quality certifications.
