About Psoriasis Treatment

When you have psoriasis, you may have red and white patches on the surface of the skin that are inflamed, scaly, and itchy. This chronic dermatology issue develops when cells in the skin multiply faster than normal. Psoriasis lesions generally range in size and can form on the elbows, hands, feet, knees, scalp, and lower portion of the back. At Ciao Bella Medical Spa, practice founder Dr. Jon Ricks treats plaque psoriasis and other skin conditions using the Alma Harmony XL PRO laser. Working through a powerful, light-based energy, the laser handpiece can address these plaques to help reduce the symptoms of psoriasis, including redness and scaliness.

Laser Psoriasis Treatment FAQ

What causes psoriasis?

The condition is believed to emerge due to an overactive immune system. For most people, this may not be an everyday problem. But when the body begins fighting infection or sickness, the heightened activity from their immune system will likely lead to an episode of psoriasis.

What does psoriasis look like?

Pinkish or reddish spots of elevated, thick, scaly skin typically indicate the presence of psoriasis. These impacted areas are usually present on the knees, elbows, and scalp; however, they can be found in almost any location on the body. Reach out to our Frisco, TX location to have your skin evaluated by Dr. Ricks.

What happens when psoriasis isn't treated?

While minor episodes of psoriasis may not have long-term negative impacts, moderate to advanced bouts of the condition could lead to psoriatic arthritis. When treatment is not sought, this type of arthritis can lead to chronic pain, disability, and joint deformities.

How does laser treatment for psoriasis work?

The Harmony XL PRO laser works through focused light to address psoriasis by slowing the proliferation of skin cells. Treatments only take a few minutes to complete and typically produce a warm sensation and minimal discomfort. Individuals may need a number of sessions to address a psoriasis condition.
