Psoriasis is not a simple rash that you can be cured off in a week. It is a lifetime condition which you have to deal with everyday, in every moment of your life. However, some relief can be found with cosmetic procedures on psoriatic spots on your skin. Padma Skin Clinic offers laser treatment for psoriasis that gives relatively longer lasting relief from the discomforts of psoriasis.
What Is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease where your skin cells mature at a very fast rate. The dead cells accumulate on your skin surface like a plaque causing itchiness, inflammation, redness, flakes, and even infection.
Why Do You Need To Treat Psoriasis?
Depending on the degree of psoriasis, it can be extremely uncomfortable. Apart from itchiness, pain, and scope of infection, it looks very displeasing as well. People suffering from psoriasis experience some degree of social alienation even though it is not a contagious disease.
Use of topical creams, special diet, and special lifestyle helps many patients. But some patients need more than just management. Laser therapy for psoriasis has helped many patients manage even higher degrees of psoriasis in a better way.
How Does Laser Treatment Help Psoriasis Patients?
At the clinic, Dr. Padma will ask you relax on the chair in the treatment setup. You will wear protective goggles before the treatment begins. The laser device is hovered directly above the psoriatic patches. You may feel warmth or a snapping sensation. The laser beam only touches the plaque and not the surrounding skin. Each session take not more than 10-15 minutes.
However, you will need to come back for more sessions at an interval of one week. Depending on the severity of your rashes, you may require 4 to 10 sessions to obtain optimum results.
The effect of the treatment may give you relief for more than a year. To maximise the lasting effect of this laser treatment, you must protect your skin from irritating chemicals, sunlight, unnecessary scratching, etc. And always apply the prescribed topical creams.
