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 Oasis Skin Institute uses a combination of phototherapy, laser and topical therapy which has proven 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 Oasis Skin Institute has a variety of topical skin care options to treat psoriasis. Particularly helpful are those which contain Salycilic acid and Retinoids. If necessary, The Oasis Skin Institute may also prescribe pharmaceutical medications.
Laser Therapy: More severe cases of psoriasis may respond to laser therapy.
A selection of Oral Medications, Supplements and Skin Care Products are also available in our clinic or by medical prescription.
