Date:5/18/2011

MONTGOMERYVILLE, Pa., May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With XTRAC® Excimer Laser (www.XTRACLaser.com) treatments, psoriasis patients can say goodbye to the red, dry patches of scaly, thickened skin they have been covering up all winter. Developed by PhotoMedex, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHMD), an innovator of medical devices, the XTRAC laser offers new hope to the 7.5 million Americans suffering from this embarrassing and socially isolating disease. Broad coverage of the XTRAC treatments for psoriasis by Medicare and all major insurance companies now provides greater access to care for psoriasis sufferers who have spent their lives covering up the embarrassing symptoms of psoriasis.

According to a report from the National Psoriasis Foundation(1), 73 percent of psoriasis sufferers reported feeling self-conscious about their psoriasis with, 68 percent reporting it as embarrassing and 54 percent stating their psoriasis was disfiguring.  For the first time, those who suffer from these physical and emotional side effects can get relief with the XTRAC Laser. The XTRAC laser is the only clinically proven, FDA-cleared dermatology excimer laser with independent safety and quality certifications. It provides targeted phototherapy treatment for psoriasis, offering safe, effective and lasting results.

Depending on the extent and severity of the patient's psoriasis, each procedure requires only about five minutes. Noticeable improvements are usually seen within three or four treatments, with many patients seeing 75 percent or more improvement in as few as six to 10 treatments and average remission periods lasting 4-6 months, often longer.  The laser is effective even in areas that are difficult to treat, such as elbows, knees and the scalp.  XTRAC Laser trea
