    XTRAC Laser for Psoriasis, Vitiligo & Eczema

    Two of the most emotionally debilitating skin diseases for patients are Psoriasis (red, inflamed patches on the skin) and Vitiligo (a depigmentation of the skin made famous by Michael Jackson), both of which affect millions of people in the US alone. We are thrilled to be able to bring a new treatment to our patients - the XTRAC Laser - which has a success rate of 95% clearance.

    Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

    Eliminate crinkling skin, stimulate hair growth and rejuventate your collagen. It's not magic - it's harnessing your body's own plasma to restore itself.

    There are no side-effects, because PRP uses your body's own resources to rejuvenate itself. The procedure itself causes minimal swelling that is gone within hours and results that can be seen in as little as one week and that last up to 18 months.
