PSORIASIS TREATMENT faq

What causes psoriasis?
Psoriasis is thought to be an immune condition where the body mistakenly attacks its own healthy skin cells and causes them to replicate excessively. This leads to patches of inflamed, scaly, irritable skin.

What does psoriasis look like?
Plaque psoriasis presents as reddish patches of elevated, thickened skin. Other kinds of psoriasis can look like smooth, red patches or even swollen blisters filled with pus. Affected areas are usually found on the scalp, elbows, and knees, but psoriasis can appear virtually anywhere on a person's skin. If you are experiencing these symptoms, contact our Orem, UT office as soon as possible to have your condition evaluated.

What happens if psoriasis isn't treated?
Although minor cases of psoriasis may not produce long-lasting negative results, without professional treatment, moderate to advanced psoriasis could develop into psoriatic arthritis. This kind of arthritis may cause debilitating discomfort and pain, mobility concerns, and deformities in the joints. It is best to have psoriasis-like conditions evaluated to prevent permanent harm.

How does laser treatment for psoriasis work?
Harmony XL PRO laser treatment at Ohana Aesthetics and Wellness heals psoriasis by culling aggressive cell generation. The Alma laser targets overactive immune cells and stimulates healing in the tissue. These laser sessions have been described as feeling like a hot rubber band snapping against the skin, and they typically only take a few minutes to complete. The cost and number of sessions will depend on the extent of your condition. Our expert team will work with you to assess the best treatment plan and the most affordable payment options for your budget.
