About Psoriasis Treatment
When you have psoriasis, you may encounter flaky, red, light-colored, and rough spots on the skin that might be inflamed, scaly, itchy, and crusted. This long-term dermatology concern can arise when skin cells proliferate too rapidly. Psoriasis lesions can vary in diameter and commonly appear on the elbows, hands, soles of the feet, back of the knees, head, and lower portion of the back. At New Body Aesthetics, Dr. Cory Gaiser regularly addresses psoriasis and other skin issues via treatment with the Alma Harmony XL PRO laser. Working through a powerful light energy, this laser system can address these skin lesions to help lessen the effects of psoriasis, like redness and flakiness. To determine if psoriasis treatment with the Harmony XL PRO laser is an option to manage your condition and relieve your symptoms, get in touch with our Cincinnati, OH location right away.

Frequently Asked Questions
What causes psoriasis?
Psoriasis is thought to develop when normal skin cells are inadvertently attacked by the immune system. When it comes to the majority of adults, this may not be a frequent concern. But when the body begins fighting sickness or infection, the elevation of immune system activity might lead to an episode of psoriasis.
What does psoriasis look like?
Light red or pink spots of raised, thickened, rough skin tissue often signifies plaque psoriasis. These impacted areas are frequently noticed on the scalp, knees, and elbows; however, they may develop nearly anyplace on the body. Get in touch with our Cincinnati, OH facility today to have your psoriasis symptoms evaluated by Dr. Gaiser.
What happens when psoriasis isn't treated?
Even though slight episodes of psoriasis might not produce lasting negative impacts, moderate to advanced bouts of the condition may result in psoriatic arthritis without professional care. When left untreated, this form of arthritis could cause debilitating discomfort, disability, and joint deformities.
How does laser treatment for psoriasis work?
Treatment with the Harmony XL PRO laser at New Body Aesthetics uses intense light to help control psoriasis by decelerating the proliferation of cells. Treatment sessions only take a few minutes to complete and generally produce a snapping sensation and mild heat. Individuals may require a series of sessions to improve a plaque psoriasis condition.
