Burn, baby, burn

Just a quick note... I'm going to be starting laser treatment for my psoriasis soon, if my insurance allows. Here's an article on it from the WSJ. This is extremely exciting new technology. My dermatologist said during each of the 10 treatments, they will only use the laser 'til my skin turns red. They have to be careful that my skin doesn't blister (although she also said that blistering works faster... eeeewwww).

I can't imagine not feeling embarrassed about my elbows this summer.


  1. I thought the point was to make them LESS red? ;)

  2. Be careful, I used the Xtrac laser treatment when it first came out and the only results I got were blistering burns all over my body every time. I would not recommend this treatment, but I wish you all the best of luck tracking down the right treatment!
