Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition in which a person’s skin cells grow too quickly. The immune system tells the body to reproduce skin faster than is necessary, leading to excess cells that pile up on top of existing skin. All that excess skin creates thick, dry patches that can turn red and are often painful. While psoriasis is a long-lasting, ongoing condition, it often evidences itself in cycles of lesser and greater symptoms. Thankfully, there are effective treatments for psoriasis available. Dr. Gurgen offers proven, powerful treatment techniques that reduce pain associated with psoriasis and encourage your body’s overall health.
