What Causes Psoriasis?

The cause of psoriasis is a mystery. Most doctors believe the illness is related to a low immune system. But beyond that, we’re still not sure what causes this issue. When your immune system is low, you may begin to have inflammation that can result in rapid cell growth. Usually, skin cells are replaced every 10-30 days, but when someone has psoriasis, new cells can grow as quickly as every 3-4 days. This causes the growth of silver-colored scales on the body, one of the most telling signs of this issue.

How Is This Condition Addressed?

ADVATx® Skin Rejuvenation is a laser treatment that uses pulses of light to heat targeted areas of the skin. This allows for direct targeting of psoriasis issues and their elimination. While the laser can’t cure the condition or address the pain you may be experiencing due to this illness, it can help give you clear skin. Several treatments may be required for the best results.

What Can I Expect?

The number of visits you will need will depend on the severity of your psoriasis. This laser is non-invasive and doesn’t cause downtime. It is a non-ablative laser, meaning that it relies on heat to treat your skin instead of exfoliating the top layer. This makes it safe and effective. You will experience little if any, side effects after treatment.
