Psoriasis is a skin disease in the form of small, scaly lesions.
Rather than relying on unproven home remedies, it is essential to receive
systematic treatment from a certified dermatology specialist.

dermatologist at any Renewme Skin Clinic branch.

CAUSES & SYMPTOMS
The exact causes of psoriasis are not yet known, but they are considered to be
a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Major symptoms include itchy,
red patches that sometimes appear symmetrically on the body.
TREATMENTS
PHAROS EXCIMER LASER
PHAROS Excimer laser is the optimal treatment for vitiligo,
psoriasis, and atopy.
This is the same equipment and treatment you can receive at
other major hospitals, but at a lesser price.
More About PHAROS EXCIMER
Unlike previous UV lamps, PHAROS Excimer is a safe and effective
treatment that reduces prolonged exposure time and can control
exposure range according to treatment area.
UV RADIATION THERAPY
Studies have shown that UV rays from sunlight can have treatment
effects for vitiligo. Using actual sunlight for treatment, however, would
require long hours,which can cause burns and other negative side effects.
This has led to the development of artificial UV radiation equipment.
Extremely safe
No pain
Applicable to expectant mothers
No prior medication required
LOCAL UV RADIATION
UV radiation is targeted in specific areas after a topical ointment is applied.
This treatment is recommended for 3 times a week, but sometimes 4 or 5 depending on the patients progress.
TOPICAL MEDICATION
Steroids or vitamin derivative ointments may be prescribed based
on the scope and condition of the lesion.
OMEGA LIGHT
Near-infrared wavelengths of 640 nm from Omega light can help
accelerate skin regeneration, treat psoriasis wounds, and relieve
pain without exposing the skin to excessive heat or pain.
AGGRAVATING FACTORS
1. EXTERNAL WOUNDS
Friction from clothes or wounds may trigger psoriasis
(Koebner phenomenon).
2. INFECTION
Psoriasis may also be aggravated by infections in the
upper airway, strep throat, tonsilitis etc.
3. CLIMATE
Psoriasis is known for worsening during cold, dry winters
and improving in warmer climates.
4. DRY SKIN
Psoriasis in itself can cause dry skin, but it also intensifies
from dry heating systems or frequent sauna/baths by
eliminating moisture and sebum from the skin.
5. STRESS
Excessive stress aggravates psoriasis, which often occurs in
high school students, office workers, or people who are in
conflict with in-laws.
6. MEDICATIONS
Lithium, beta blockers, chloroquine, indomethacin, etc. are
medications that can aggravate psoriasis. Topical or oral
steroid might offer temporary relief, but a cease in
treatment could make the condition even worse.
