Can My Psoriasis Be Treated?
Your treatment options for psoriasis depend on how long you have lived with the condition, as well as the severity of your psoriasis. Some patients may require multiple treatments for best results, including shorter follow-up treatments to help boost the effects of the laser procedure. Recent published research performed at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists documents the unique efficacy of using the excimer laser for the treatment of hand and foot psoriasis.
Who is a candidate for treatment?
This treatment is best for mild to moderate psoriasis. The laser is effective in treating more difficult-to-treat area such as the knees, elbows and scalp. Dr. Goldberg and his world renowned research team just published a study showing how effective this laser can be in treating difficult hand and foot psoriasis.
How does treatment compare with other psoriasis treatments?

The laser may have fewer shortcomings than many common psoriasis treatments. Due to the targeted nature of laser therapy, the healthy skin’s exposure is limited.
What can I expect during treatment?
