The Excimer Laser offers a revolutionary new treatment for patients suffering from vitiligo, white scars, lightening of the skin from previous laser treatments, trauma, or other causes. This laser uses a carefully focused beam of light delivered through a sophisticated fiber optic device. The Excimer system allows the practitioner to use high doses of UVB light necessary to only treat the lighter skin, while minimizing the risk of exposure to the healthy, pigmented skin. Remissions are expected to last months to even years.
The excimer laser system is light-years ahead of other vitiligo treatments. Using a carefully focused beam of laser light delivered through a sophisticated fiber-optic delivery system, the Excimer system is designed to repigment unsightly lighter skin tones.
Narrowband UVB is now the most common form of phototherapy used to treat skin diseases (2008). Narrow-band refers to a specific wavelength of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, 311 to 312 nm. UVB phototherapy was formerly provided as a broadband source (290 to 320 nm). This range of UV radiation has proved to be the most beneficial component of natural sunlight for psoriasis.
Patients attend two to five times weekly. The patient is placed in a specially designed cabinet containing fluorescent light tubes. The patient stands in the centre of the cabinet, undressed except for underwear, and wears protective goggles. Usually the whole body is exposed to the UVB for a short time (seconds to minutes).
