Although psoriasis cannot be cured, treatment can help manage the symptoms and improve a patient’s quality of life.

What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that creates scaly, rough, red patches of skin. As skin builds up, these rashes expand and can become a significant cosmetic concern. Although treatment cannot cure psoriasis, it can minimize the symptoms to help patients achieve clearer, smoother skin. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we use laser therapy to remove the build up of skin cells. To do this, we use the Alma Harmony XL laser system.
How Much Does Psoriasis Treatment Cost in Boston & Newburyport, MA?
The cost of your psoriasis treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Psoriasis Treatment Performed?
Before psoriasis treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area in order to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the treatment process. Then, a laser device will be used to target the affected areas of the skin. As laser energy is delivered to the skin, it exfoliates the rash-like build up of skin to reduce its appearance. This treatment is typically performed in under 30 minutes, but treatment time can vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Psoriasis Treatment?
After psoriasis treatment, patients should notice an instant improvement in the appearance of the skin. However, there may be minor redness that makes it difficult to notice the results right away. The skin typically recovers from this treatment within a few days, at which time the full results from treatment will be visible. We typically recommend a series of treatments to help patients achieve optimal results.
Is There Downtime After Psoriasis Treatment?
Although the skin may have mild redness or sensitivity, there is no downtime required after psoriasis treatment. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following their treatment. We encourage patients to limit sun exposure following their psoriasis treatment to prevent damage to the skin while it is healing.
