This device works quickly, is non-invasive, and requires no downtime. Schedule a consultation here in Reno, Nevada, to learn more today.
What Causes Psoriasis?
Scientists are still unsure of what causes psoriasis. However, this disease has been linked to having a low immune system. When your immune system is low, you may begin to have inflammation that can result in rapid cell growth. Ordinarily, skin cells are replaced every 10-30 days, but when someone has psoriasis, new cells can grow as quickly as every 3-4 days. This causes the growth of unsightly silver scales on the body, one of the most telling signs of this issue.
How Are These Issues Addressed?
Our ADVATx® Skin Rejuvenation treatments use pulses of light to heat targeted areas of the skin. This allows us to directly target psoriasis issues and get rid of rough, flaky skin with ease. While the laser can’t cure the condition or address the joint pain you may be experiencing, it can help give you clear skin. Several treatments may be required for the best results.
What Can I Expect?
The number of visits you will need will depend on the severity of your condition. This laser is non-invasive and doesn’t cause downtime. It is a non-ablative laser that uses heat to treat your skin instead of exfoliating the top layer. This makes it safe and effective, and it means that you will experience little, if any, side effects after treatment. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the treatment process in greater depth and determine the optional protocol.
