What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin at an abnormally fast rate, often causing lesions that may burn, sting, and itch. This disorder causes skin cells to multiply up to 10 times faster than normal and create a build-up on the skin.
Plaque psoriasis, also known as psoriasis vulgaris, accounts for about 90% of reported cases. It typically presents red patches of skin with white scales on top. The patches may vary in severity from small and localized to nearly complete body coverage. Some people report symptoms of itching, burning, and stinging.
Psoriasis is also associated with other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and depression.
August is Psoriasis Awareness Month and NeoGenesis wants to bring awareness to those suffering from this chronic skin condition and provide support to skin care professionals. NeoGenesis believes that great skin care products can provide the relief needed to restore and bring comfort to your client’s skin.
Treatments for Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a skin condition that aestheticians are seeing more often these days in the treatment room. At this time, there is no cure for it; however, there are ways to avoid its triggers, as well as, products and treatments that can help alleviate the symptoms when the skin flares up. Psoriasis should first be treated by a physician. Afterward, professional skin care treatments can help to relieve and calm the reactive state of the skin during a flare-up.
With groundbreaking technology in skin care, NeoGenesis products have improved the quality of life for those with chronic psoriasis. Our case studies have shown that with regular use of Recovery serum and Barrier Renewal Cream, the skin dramatically improved and reduced irritation.
Additionally, skin exposure to natural or artificial ultraviolet light can also help as a treatment plan. The light causes the activated T cells in the skin to die, which slows down cell turnover, which is a problem in psoriasis.
“As you can tell in the pictures there is significant improvement in the aspect of the lesions. She has no pain, some itchiness but subsides quickly. The scaling is significantly less and the size of the affected area decreased considerably.”
– Valentin Isacescu, MD
Providing Education + Solutions
As a skin professional, you have the ability to transform your client’s skin and educate them on their aftercare before leaving your clinic. Your clients can easily manage the side effects at home with a proper at-home protocol from NeoGenesis. Using these products listed below 2 times a day will dramatically improve the overall appearance of their skin.
We want you to feel confident in the products you recommend and use in the treatment room!
- NeoGenesis Recovery, our most advanced product, is abundant in S²RM® molecules which will help to reset the normal balance of the skin’s growth factors, thereby returning the growth rates to more normal levels.
- Along with Recovery serum, protect the skin with a nutrient-dense moisturizer. NeoGenesis Barrier Renewal Cream, Intensive Moisturizer, or Body Cream will keep the skin hydrated and improve barrier function. Apply Recovery at least twice daily to the affected area and follow with the moisturizer.
- NeoGenesis Moisturizing Mist may be used throughout the day for immediate soothing of the skin.
The topical application of NeoGenesis skin care products to the affected area will help to return the skin to a state of normalcy and reduce the redness and itching. Because psoriasis involves an abnormally high growth rate of skin cells, and an abnormal balance of growth factors, NeoGenesis can help to reset the balance, thereby returning the growth rates to more normal levels. Moisturizing the skin and keeping it properly hydrated is an important aspect of skin management.
