What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a hereditary, autoimmune illness affecting millions of people in the UK and close to 3% of the world’s population. Psoriasis can bring about serious pain which is sometimes treated with skin creams, medicated shampoos, oral solutions, improved diet These treatments all have their place, but now there is an alternative treatment, involving targeting the affected area using localised cryotherapy.
There are generally 5 types of psoriasis which lead to chronic inflammation with symptoms including:
Plaque – Thick red patches of skin, red, bothersome patches
Guttate – Small red spots on the torso, limbs, face, and scalp
Inverse – Red, shiny, smooth rash in skin folds
Pustular – White pustules surrounded by red skin
Erythrodermic – Resembles severe burns and covers large portions of the body
How does Cryotherapy Help Psoriasis?
Simply put, when your body is exposed to sub freezing temperatures, your veins widen and blood stream is pulled far from the skin with an end goal to keep your organs warm.
This is your body’s response to avoid going into hypothermia.
Once the targeted cryotherapy session has finished, your blood stream surges back through your body and skin to the point of feeling a tingling sensation. This is your blood stream expanding and flushing out poisons resulting in skin revival, enhanced collagen levels, energetic looking skin and decreased blemishes.
A course of several treatments is often required to achieve optimum results.
