What Happens During an Excimer Laser Treatment at NY’s Hudson Dermatology?

During your session, a provider will carefully guide a handheld wand over the treatment area. The device emits an intense, focused blast of ultraviolet light of a special wavelength proven not to cause skin cancer. A typical treatment lasts just 10 to 15 minutes, and the experience is painless. Depending on the severity of the condition, we may recommend additional sessions—and potentially multiple appointments in the same week—to thoroughly address your symptoms. Patients typically begin to see results after the first few sessions.

The wand can be applied to a wide variety of areas of the body, including the face, elbows, soles of the feet, knees, hands, and scalp. There is no recovery or downtime necessary after a session, allowing patients to resume their usual activities as soon as they’d like following an appointment. Additionally, most insurance companies cover excimer laser treatments. The Hudson Dermatology team is happy to work with you to determine whether your insurance will cover the costs of your treatment.

What Conditions Does an Excimer Laser Treatment Address?

Excimer laser treatments can be utilized to address the symptoms of several conditions that have historically been difficult to treat.

Psoriasis

This chronic skin condition is characterized by inflamed, itchy, thickened, and red patches of skin. Breakouts are most likely to occur on knees, elbows, trunk, and scalp. Although there is currently no cure for psoriasis, excimer laser treatments can help reduce symptoms.

Eczema

Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is a result of an overactive immune system that causes immune cells to attack healthy skin cells. Symptoms include patches of cracked, swollen, inflamed, and itchy skin that can appear anywhere on the body. The condition is characterized by flare ups that can be triggered by fragrances, pollen, smoke, and soap. Excimer laser treatments target the problematic immune cells, causing the condition to go into remission.

Vitiligo

This long-term skin condition occurs when the cells that produce melanin stop functioning, causing blotchy patches of skin with no color. While the cause of vitiligo is currently unknown, the UVB light in excimer laser treatments can help stimulate re-pigmentation of the skin.

A consultation at Hudson Dermatology can help determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.
