"The excimer laser is very efficient"

"Patients who are excellent candidates for the excimer laser are patients with more localized plaque psoriasis of elbows, knees, buttocks, or as an add-on adjunctive therapy after full body NB UVB exposure in our phototherapy box. The excimer laser is very efficient in clearing flexural crease psoriasis, as well as resistant psoriasis of the scalp and genital areas. We often use it in combination with an optimized topical regimen such as steroids and vitamin D3 foams."
