"I, Peggy Larson, want to express my deepest gratitude to you and your staff for all of the help I have received from your office the last year. As you know, I deal with chronic neck and back pain and other physical problems. I was concerned about finding a new doctor when my previous chiropractor retired. I worried about finding someone who could really help me. Dr. Joe has helped me so very much! So many times I have been in severe pain and been able to get relief from my doctor visits. More than that, I am grateful for the compassion and care that has been shown to me. Jeri has been especially kind and has become a trusted friend through my visits. I don't know what I would do without you. I am so appreciative of the help and relief I have been able to receive. Thank you again! Peggy Larson"- L.L. / Google / Sep 25, 2021
"As always I walked in with a problem and left feeling 100% better! I can't say enough good things about the doctors and staff here!"- A.S. / Google / Sep 01, 2021
"I’ve got pretty thick hair on my beard, back of the neck, as well as my back. After a few treatments I’ve noticed a huge difference. I targeted just under my beard, so all the nasty stragglers I shave daily to keep my beard line looking good. Normally after shaving I get razor burn no matter how I tackle it. The first treatment I noticed I wouldn’t get razor burn anymore, and my hair already started coming in thinner. I also had an odd toenail fungus thing and I’ve had 4 treatments on it and it’s already starting to dissipate! I’ve had it for years and it’s nice to see it finally start going away. Would totally recommend for any guy thinking about removing hair in areas that are a hassle to upkeep!"- A.M. / Office Visit / Aug 18, 2021
"AMAZING! I've only had 2 laser hair removal treatments done on my legs and under arms and I've already noticed a huge difference. My skin stays smooth longer, the hair is softer, my ingrown hairs are much less(almost gone), there are less red marks after shaving, and I don't have to shave as often and that is only after 2 treatments. Also Sage is amazing. She explains every thing she's about to do so I understand what's going on. She's super professional and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I'm excited to try some of the other treatments."- C.A. / Office Visit / Aug 11, 2021
"I’ve loved my treatments and experience at Ohana. I have done four sessions of laser hair removal on my full legs and underarms. I’ve noticed a huge difference and rarely have to shave anymore. Their master Aesthetician Sage, is incredibly nice and professional. She made the experience comfortable and stress free. She was willing to answer any questions I had and explained the process as she went so I never felt uncomfortable or surprised . Would 100% recommend coming here."- O.M. / Office Visit / Jul 29, 2021
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.
