The Visible Signs

As with psoriasis elsewhere on the body, scalp psoriasis can be mild, with slight, fine scaling and almost unnoticeable. But it can also be severe with thick, plaques covering the entire scalp. People with scalp psoriasis are commonly embarrassed by their appearance, which can negatively affect their mental and physical well-being.

The visible signs often extend beyond the hairline onto the forehead, the back of the neck and around the ears. Depending on the severity, symptoms of scalp psoriasis may include:

  • Dandruff-Like Flakes
  • Silvery-White Scales
  • Thick, Crusted Lesions
  • Red-Colored Plaques
  • Fine Scales
  • Itching
  • Soreness
  • Burning

Those who develop vitiligo usually first notice white patches (depigmentation) on their skin, most commonly on sun-exposed areas of the body, including the hands, feet, arms, face, and lips. Other commonly affected areas are the armpits, groin and around the mouth, eyes, nostrils and navel.

The disorder generally appears in one of the three patterns:

  • Focal, where depigmentation is limited to one or only a few areas.
  • Segmental, where patches develop on one side of the body only.
  • Generalized Pattern—the most common pattern—where depigmentation occurs symmetrically on both sides of the body.

In addition to white patches on the skin, vitiligo patients may have premature graying of the scalp, hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, and beard.

Living XTRAC Clear

Because of the shielding effect of hair, traditional UVB lamp therapy is not very effective against scalp psoriasis. However, studies have reported success in treating it with the [XTRAC] 308 nm excimer laser which generates a targeted beam of UVB light.

XTRAC allows for simple manual separation of the hair, provides good visualization of the psoriasis and permits rapid treatment so that a whole scalp can often be treated in less than 15 minutes.

Unlike conventional light therapies, the XTRAC excimer laser delivers a highly targeted therapeutic beam of UVB light to areas of the skin affected by psoriasis without harming the surrounding skin. XTRAC clears the symptoms, prolongs the remission and returns skin to a clinically healthy state in record time so you can LIVE CLEAR. LIVE FREE.
