Bumpy, itchy, and irritated red patches covered with white scales are the most common signs of psoriasis Vulgaris. This unpleasant skin condition causes patches to grow anywhere, making them appear on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. Though not contagious, this condition can be inherited and is quite uncomfortable for those affected. If you notice symptoms of this concern on your body, there is help available. Our team at Healing Light Aesthetics can offer the Elite iQ™ Laser system to address the symptoms of psoriasis.
What Causes Psoriasis?
The exact cause of this issue is not known, but having a weak immune system can play a role. If something causes your immune system to become weak, you may begin to have inflammation which could trigger rapid cell growth. Typically, it takes 10-30 days for cells to replace themselves, but new cells can grow in as quickly as every 3-4 days for someone with psoriasis. The rapid buildup of old cells can result in unsightly silver scales characteristic of this condition. If this sounds familiar to you, we urge you to contact our Rutland, Vermont center today.
What Are the Symptoms of Psoriasis?
Aside from the white patches of dry skin that appear due to this illness, other common signs of this condition include a scaly rash, joint pain, fissures, and skin peeling at the areas of concern. Scalp psoriasis can be especially irritating and uncomfortable, causing excessive scalp itching. At Healing Light Aesthetics, we can provide effective relief from these symptoms through a non-invasive treatment with the Elite iQ™ Laser system.
