What is Psoriasis ?
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin condition that causes the rapid buildup of skin cells. Typically, the life cycle of a skin cell is one month, while people with psoriasis go through the whole process in a couple of days. Leading to red, itchy scaly patches on your skin.
Anyone can develop psoriasis but triggering factors are a family history with this condition, high levels of stress, skin injuries, and hormonal changes. Even if there is still no cure for psoriasis, treatment is available to manage your symptoms at Perfect Skin.
Symptoms or consequences
While this condition is not infectious, it is quite visible to other people because psoriasis usually appears anywhere on the body. However, psoriasis most often develops on the hands, feet, neck, scalp, and face. The affected areas also suffer from inflammation, redness around the scales, and sometimes bleeding due to cracking patches of skin.
Furthermore, people with this condition have a higher risk of developing other conditions, like cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure or hypertension, diabetes and depression.

We understand psoriasis can affect your quality of life and your mental-health. For that reason, Perfect Skin treatments are based on the type and severity of your condition, ensuring the best medication available and phototherapy.
