Treating Psoriasis using Cryotherapy

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a hereditary, autoimmune illness affecting nearly 8 million people in the United States of America 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 and more recently 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?

This is your body’s response to avoid going into hypothermia.

Once the cryosauna session is 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.
