According to the World Psoriasis Day consortium, about two to three percent of the world’s population suffer from psoriasis, a disease of the skin that usually causes, itchy patches of red, scaly skin, usually in areas like the knees, scalp, elbows, and midsection.

Using highly advanced laser technology, we’re able to not only resurface your skin — removing the damaged outer layer while leaving healthy, rejuvenated cells behind — but we can also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, allowing your skin to more effectively stay refreshed and hydrated.
This combination of topical treatments and light-based therapy is a highly effective way to make the most out a visit to Clinic 5c. This treatment will be customized based on your individual needs, and utilizes either laser treatment or intense pulsed light to activate a highly effective topical treatment.
