If you’ve experienced the effects of psoriasis, vitiligo or atopic dermatitis, you know that these skin conditions can be difficult to treat, sometimes with very little lasting relief. Here at Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute, we are pleased to begin offering XTRAC®️ appointments for our patients.

What is XTRAC, you ask, and why are we proponents of the treatment? We’ll walk you through all you need to know about this powerful laser treatment.

What is XTRAC®️?
XTRAC®️ is a laser treatment used to combat and eliminate the symptoms of psoriasis, vitiligo and atopic dermatitis through a concentrated UVB light source to treat only the affected areas on the body. According to, “72% of participants experienced at least a 75% clearing of psoriasis plaques in an average of 6.2 treatments.
