Most patients feel no pain or discomfort during the short XTRAC treatment sessions. A few report feeling a warm sensation, like a mild sunburn, at the site of the lesion. No anesthesia is necessary.
Not only is the XTRAC treatment free of pain, it has few of the drawbacks often associated with other psoriasis treatments, such as premature skin aging, skin thinning or resistance to medication. And the XTRAC system can be used successfully on hard-to-treat areas of the body such as elbows and knees.
