What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition characterised by patches of thick, red skin covered with silvery scales.

It occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells, causing rapid turnover of skin cells.

While the exact cause is unknown, factors such as genetics, immune system dysfunction, and environmental triggers play a role in its development. Stress, infections, certain medications, and cold weather can exacerbate symptoms.

Our comprehensive treatment service effectively manages psoriasis symptoms, helping individuals achieve clearer, healthier skin.

What causes psoriasis?

An overactive immune system primarily causes psoriasis, triggering inflammation and leading to the rapid turnover of skin cells.

Although the exact cause remains unknown, factors such as genetics, immune system dysfunction, and environmental elements like stress, infections, certain medications, and cold weather can contribute to its development.

Can psoriasis be cured?

Psoriasis, a chronic condition, cannot be cured completely.

However, various treatments can often effectively manage it to control symptoms and reduce flare-ups. These treatments may include topical medications, oral medications, light therapy, and biologic injections.

With proper management, many individuals with psoriasis can achieve long periods of remission and improve their quality of life.

How long does it take to see results from psoriasis treatments?

The timeframe for seeing results from psoriasis treatments can vary depending on the specific treatment used, the severity of the condition, and individual response.

Some treatments, such as topical medications, may show improvement within a few weeks to a couple of months.

Others, like oral medications or light therapy, may take longer, typically several weeks to a few months, to demonstrate noticeable results.

Biologic medications, which are often used for more severe cases, may also require several weeks to months before significant improvement is observed.

Patients should follow their dermatologist’s recommendations closely and allow sufficient time for treatments to take effect.

Are the treatments safe?

Yes, the treatments we offer are safe and have been extensively tested and researched for their effectiveness and safety.

Are there any side effects from the treatments?

Certain treatments may cause mild side effects, such as skin irritation, redness, or itching, but these are usually only temporary.

Patients should discuss potential side effects with their dermatologist before starting any treatment and report any adverse reactions promptly

Dermatologists can monitor and minimise side effects while ensuring effective treatment of psoriasis.

How much do the treatments cost?

The cost of psoriasis treatments can vary depending on the type of treatment used and the severity of the condition. We offer a range of treatment options at different price points and can provide you with a detailed quote during your consultation.
