How Does Laser Psoriasis Treatment Work?
Psoriasis can be a lifelong hurdle, causing discomfort and distress for many. But there's hope at hand.
Everest Medspa is excited to offer patients breakthrough laser treatment for psoriasis in Wayne and Havertown, PA, using PicoSure and Pico Genesis, two cutting-edge solutions that help to rejuvenate the skin while addressing psoriasis symptoms. These innovative, efficient technologies have helped Dr. Xiaobin Li bring relief to numerous patients grappling with psoriasis.
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is not simply a skin condition; it's an autoimmune disease that erroneously prompts your immune system to target healthy skin cells. This response leads to an accelerated buildup of skin cells on your body's surface, causing red, scaly patches known as psoriasis plaques. These can be seen anywhere on the body but are often most prevalent on the elbows, knees, and scalp. There are a number of psoriasis treatments on the market, including creams, bath products, and oral medicines, but few are able to match the convenience and effectiveness of laser skin treatments at our Havertown, PA office.
What are some of the symptoms of psoriasis?
The symptoms of psoriasis can vary among individuals but often include the following:
- Red, inflamed patches of skin that are often covered with silvery scales. These are typically the most recognizable symptom of psoriasis.
- Itchiness or tenderness in the affected areas, which can cause discomfort and disruption to daily life.
- In severe cases, the skin around joints may become so dry that it cracks and bleeds, leading to additional discomfort and the risk of infection.
- Some people with psoriasis also develop a condition known as psoriatic arthritis, which leads to swollen, painful joints. This condition is often progressive and can lead to joint damage if left untreated.
How do psoriasis laser treatments work?
The field of psoriasis treatment has seen remarkable advances, particularly with the development of laser technologies like PicoSure and Pico Genesis. These systems use extremely short pulses of micro-fine laser light to penetrate into the layers of skin below the surface, initiating the skin's natural repair process. This leads to the replacement of older, damaged skin cells with new, healthy ones. PicoSure and Pico Genesis offer a noninvasive solution for psoriasis that effectively treats the condition without damaging the surrounding skin.
What are some of the other benefits of laser skin treatments?
In addition to effectively treating psoriasis plaques, laser skin treatments offer several side benefits. They are a form of targeted therapy that focuses solely on the affected area, sparing healthy skin from unnecessary exposure. Despite the power of the technology, each laser treatment session is swift, often completed within just a few minutes, depending on the size and number of areas to be treated. Furthermore, laser treatments tend to have fewer side effects compared to traditional systemic medications or biologics, making them a popular choice for many patients. This approach can dramatically improve a patient's quality of life as they experience relief from the itching and pain associated with psoriasis. During your consultation, our team will be happy to inform you about the various benefits of our office's laser skin treatments.
