About Psoriasis Treatment

When dealing with psoriasis, you are most likely to have red, light, colored, flaky, or thickened plaques on the skin that can be itchy, inflamed, scaly, and even crusted. This ongoing dermatology concern can arise when cells in the skin replicate at a very fast rate. Psoriasis blemishes tend to range in diameter and often form near the elbows, hands, feet, back of the knees, scalp, and lower back. At Javani Med Spa, Stephanie Antepara, ARNP-C, CEN routinely treats plaque psoriasis and other skin issues through procedures with the Alma Harmony XL PRO laser. Working through healing light energy, this laser handpiece can address these skin lesions to help reduce the symptoms of psoriasis, such as irritation and scaliness. To learn whether Harmony XL PRO laser psoriasis treatment can help relieve your symptoms, contact our Windermere, FL office.


What causes psoriasis?

Psoriasis symptoms are thought to develop when normal skin cells are unintentionally attacked by the immune system. When it comes to most women and men, this might not be an everyday concern. But if the body starts fighting sickness or infection, the increase of immune system activity may lead to an episode of psoriasis.

What does psoriasis look like?

Reddish or pinkish areas of elevated, thick, flaking skin tissue is typically indicative of the presence of psoriasis. These affected areas are usually present on the scalp, elbows, and knees; however, they could be found in nearly any location on a patient's body. Get in touch with our Windermere, FL practice as soon as you can to have your psoriasis symptoms addressed.

What happens when psoriasis isn't treated?

While mild episodes of psoriasis may not carry lasting negative results, moderate to advanced episodes may result in psoriatic arthritis if you delay professional care. If left untreated, this type of arthritis often causes debilitating pain, mobility issues, and irreversible deformities in the joints.
