What is the Pharos Excimer Laser?
The Pharos Excimer is an FDA-approved laser treatment that can be used to improve a broad range of skin conditions. These include:
- White scars
- Skin lightening
Over two million Pharos Excimer treatments have been performed by dermatologists all around the world, and have brought patients long-lasting skin improvements.
How Does it Work?
During a Pharos Excimer treatment, laser light is concentrated at the patient’s specific desired treatment areas. Concentrating laser energy exclusively at affected areas prevents healthy parts of the skin from being adversely affected, and contributes to the quick treatment and recovery time associated with this laser.
Once the laser energy has been directed at the treatment area, its specific wavelength of healing light acts as an inflammatory agent for the skin, calming the irritation responsible for psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo symptoms. This laser energy also jumpstarts the body’s healing process. Over time, this results in skin that is visibly smoother and more even in tone.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
No anesthesia or numbing cream is applied to the treatment area before a Pharos Excimer treatment session — treatment is just that painless! Each session can take as little as 10-15 minutes to complete, with patients experiencing no side effects or discomfort both during and after the procedure. While improvements can be seen in as little as three treatments, we typically recommend that patients undergo between six and ten sessions to see dramatic results.
Am I a Candidate for a Treatment with the Pharos Excimer Laser?
Nearly anyone suffering from psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo, white scars, or skin lightening that they would like to improve is a potential candidate for Pharos Excimer laser treatments. Before beginning treatment, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of River Region Dermatology & Laser’s medical staff. During this appointment, one of our medical professionals will examine your skin and help you decide if this treatment is right for you.
