New Device Offers Added Hope in Patients with Skin of Color

Aerolase launches the Exci308 to help fight common skin conditions.

Aerolase announced the launch of its new device in fighting common skin conditions in patients with skin of color. The Exci308 is a handheld phototherapy device that addresses such autoimmune conditions including vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, scalp psoriasis, and leukoderma.1 Chesahna Kindred, MD, chair of the National Medical Association dermatology section, said, “I can now provide safe and effective phototherapy for a variety of conditions using a handheld device.”

The energy-based Aerolase Exci308 utilizes 308nm light to normalize skin affected by autoimmune diseases, such as inducing migration of the melanocytes on the border of depigmented areas in vitiligo. The Exci308 differs from other devices in price, size and weight, and speed. Aerolase touts it as a more affordable and less expensive option to treat autoimmune skin conditions, with equal efficacy and quicker treatment times.
