Treatments by Prof. Dr Ikram Ullah Khan:

Morphea is a serious skin problem, in which the skin tights from the center and red from the periphery. As time proceeds, inflammation reduces and color changes until it leads to atrophy. Prof. Dr Ikram Ullah Khan who is the best dermatologist in Islamabad, gives treatments tailored to the needs of each patient. If a patient comes in the early stage of this disease, he prescribes various medicines to prevent the growth of existing lesions.


Topical medicines (steroids, vitamin D analogs, tacrolimus) are important to treat this skin disease in functionalist areas—photo therapy for superficial lesions. Systemic therapy applies to sensitive areas if the disease is deep-rooted. But to treat indurated areas he goes for procedures like pulsed dye or excimer 380 Laser treatments available in his clinic.

Pulsed Dye Laser for Treatment at Prof. Dr Ikram Ullah Khan’s Clinic:

Prof. Dr Ikram Ullah Khan has the expertise in using cutting-edge technology to treat skin issues. Pulsed dye is a non-invasive procedure, in which a laser emits high-intensity pulses on discolored and thick patches of skin.

Excimer 380 Laser Treatment at Prof. Dr Ikram Ullah Khan Clinic:

Depending on the disease level, sometimes Prof. Dr Ikram Ullah Khan uses an excimer 380 laser to treat localized scleroderma. In this treatment, a high beam of ultraviolet light is used to treat thickened and dark patches of morphea. Excimer laser breaks down the excess collagen of the affected area and promotes skin rejuvenation.

Laser is not only used for cosmetic concerns but has a vast role in medical procedures as well. Sometimes, Prof. Dr Ikram Ullah Khan, the top dermatologist in Islamabad, uses both types of laser treatments on patients to tackle the challenging situation of morphea.

Morphea Treatment



Intense pulsed light (IPL Laser) therapy, aka photo facial, is a way to improve the color and texture of your skin without surgery. It can undo some of the visible damage caused by sun exposure — called photoaging. You may notice it mostly on your face, neck, hands, or chest.



Excimer 308-nm light is a form of targeted phototherapy that delivers a specific wavelength (308 nm) of ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation using an excimer laser or an excimer lamp. So both have shown similar results regarding efficacy, but have technical differences.
