PSORIASIS & ECZEMA

IPL therapy to reduce inflammation 

If you are battling with the itchiness, dry patches, blisters, and inflamed skin that accompany eczema and psoriasis, know that you are not alone. Approximately 5% of the world population suffers from these two skin diseases.

Psoriasis is a chronic immune-mediated inflammatory skin disease of unknown yet origin. The modern means of the treatment include topical anti-inflammatory preparations as well as IPL and Cold Laser treatments. However, neither lead to the complete cure of the disease, rather help reduce the inflammation.

 

While there is no known cure for psoriasis or eczema, many sufferers have been able to reduce the effects of these two diseases by using IPL therapy.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE RECEIVING IPL TREATMENT

IPL treatment can produce some dramatic results. However, the therapy does not work well for everyone. Laser treatment is not advised for those who are sensitive to the sun, have a history of skin cancer, and who are using medications that increase their sensitivity to the sun.

 

 

Eczema and psoriasis can rob a person of their quality of life and lower their self-esteem. IPL therapy may provide the relief that many are searching for and allow them to live their life with increased comfort and confidence.

IPL FOR PSORIASYS & ECZEMA FAQ

How Effective is IPL Therapy for Treating Psoriasis & Eczema?


IPL therapy works well on individuals who have mild to moderate psoriasis and eczema. However, it may not be effective for people who have flare-ups all over their body. Studies have shown that most people who receive this therapy have an improvement in their skin condition that can last for up to a year.




What is IPL Therapy?


IPL therapy stands for intense pulse light therapy. This is a technology that has been used for years to address different problems that people have with their skin, including pigmentation problems, hair removal, and acne. The therapy targets the chromophores and other structures in the skin that contribute to the skin condition that is being addressed.




How Are Treatments Performed?


ILP therapy treatment time may vary, depending on the size of targeted patches of psoriasis or eczema being treated. During the procedure, you may experience a warm sensation, or it may feel like something is snapping against your skin.
The laser technician who performs the procedure will determine the dose of light that will be used based on the severity of the psoriasis or eczema. Throughout the procedure, you may be required to wear goggles to protect your eyes.
