Psoriasis is a chronic disease which causes red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. Apart from affecting appearance, it can cause significant itching and discomfort.
The De Pieri Clinic uses a combination of phototherapy, laser therapy and topical therapy which has proven to offer relief to patients suffering from psoriasis.
Phototherapy: An LED light panel is directed at the affected area for approximately 20 minutes per session. This is a painless, pleasant experience which can be performed weekly as required.
Topical Treatments: The De Pieri Clinic has a variety of topical skin care options to treat psoriasis. Particularly helpful are those which contain salicylic acid and retinoids. If necessary, Dr. De Pieri may also prescribe pharmaceutical medications.
Laser Therapy: More severe cases of psoriasis may respond to laser therapy. Dr. De Pieri normally recommends a pulsed dye laser to treat psoriasis.
