How to Treat Poikiloderma?
There are several treatments to correct poikiloderma but topical creams are not effective. The best treatment is prevention with very good daily sun block. Once poikiloderma is present the best treatments involve laser treatments to treat the varying aspects of red and brown discoloration in the skin.
The Xcel V Coolglide laser specifically target’s the brown pigmentation and red vascular nature of Poikiloderma. Several treatments may be required to achieve good results. Excel V laser has no downtime and you will be able to return to work the same day.
