Before + After - PsoriasisPsoriasis is a skin disorder that causes skin cells to multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. The build up of skin causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. Although it can appear anywhere on the body, it typically affects the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp. 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.

It is always best to consult with a medical professional for a diagnosis if you develop a rash that doesn’t go away with an over-the-counter medication.

Causes of Psoriasis

While scientists do not know what exactly causes psoriasis, we do know that the immune system and genetics play major roles in its development. Usually, there are triggers that cause psoriasis to flare. The skin cells in people with psoriasis grow at an abnormally fast rate, which causes the buildup of psoriasis lesions.

Men and women develop psoriasis at equal rates. Psoriasis often develops between the ages of 15 and 35, but it can develop at any age. About 10 to 15 percent of those with psoriasis get it before age 10. Some infants have psoriasis, although this is considered rare. If one parent has the disease, there is about a 10 percent chance of a child contracting it. If both parents have psoriasis, the chance increases to 50 percent. It is impossible to predict who will get psoriasis. Scientists now believe that approximately 10 percent of the general population inherits one or more of the genes that create a predisposition to psoriasis. However, only 2 to 3 percent of the population develop the disease.

Psoriasis is not a contagious condition (the lesions are not infectious), so coming into contact with someone with psoriasis will not cause the psoriasis to spread.

Psoriatic Arthritis

About 11 percent of those diagnosed with psoriasis have also been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis.  Up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis will eventually develop psoriatic arthritis, which causes pain, stiffness and swelling in and around the joints.

Psoriatic arthritis often goes undiagnosed, particularly in its milder forms. However, it’s important to treat psoriatic arthritis early on to help avoid permanent joint damage.

Treatments for Psoriasis

Getting treatment for your psoriasis is critical to good disease management and overall health. Work with your doctor or health care professional to find a treatment, or treatments, that reduce or eliminate your symptoms. Each treatment is customized as what works for one person might not work for another.

It’s important to know the different treatment options available. Current forms of treatment for psoriasis include:

  • New Oral Treatments – treatment options have emerged with a sophisticated approach to treating psoriatic disease. These are called “small-molecule” treatments and can be delivered effectively by mouth. Unlike earlier pills, these new oral treatments selectively target molecules inside immune cells. By adjusting the complicated processes of inflammation within the cell, these treatments correct the overactive immune response that causes inflammation in people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, leading to improvement in redness and scales as well as joint tenderness and swelling.
  • Biologics – drugs given through injection or intravenously that target specific parts of the immune system for moderate to severe psoriasis.
  • Systemics – drugs given orally or through injection that work throughout the body.  Typically for patients with moderate to severe psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
  • Phototherapy – Phototherapy or light therapy, involves exposing the skin to ultraviolet light on a regular basis and under medical supervision.

Professional Feedback:

Day 1“Patient has Psoriasis for approximately a year now. It started on a very small surface and spread out on her elbows, knees, ankles, scalp, and also random patches on her legs. It is constant, never goes away, and in the past year it has gotten worse. The lesions itch and hurt significantly and continuously. On a scale from 1-10, 10 being the worst, a solid 7 at the time of the pictures.

Patient previously used Aveeno Psoriasis Cream, and other steroid-based creams, Psoriasis Control Cream (Salicylic Acid based), and a Medicated Conditioning Coal Tar Formula Shampoo (MG217).”

Day 42“As you can tell in the pictures there is significant improvement in the aspect of the lesions after the patient started using Recovery serum. She has no pain, some itchiness but subsides quickly. The scaling is significantly less and the size of the affected area decreased considerably.” ~ VI, MD

“Since I was four years old I have had psoriasis everywhere – on my legs, face, back and feet. As a result of this, I’ve always been self conscious as it has affected the way I feel about myself. I used NeoGenesis Recovery one night on my feet just to try it out and was blown away at the results. The very next day the psoriasis on my feet was nearly gone already. Thank you NeoGenesis.” ~ JS

Before + After - Psoriasis“Recovery Serum was amazing for my psoriasis! 

I am very familiar with this distressing skin condition as my mom had suffered very severely with it all of her life, with no real relief from the myriad of creams, ointments and bath soaks her doctor prescribed her. My sister currently takes an oral chemotherapy drug to keep her psoriasis under control. 

I contracted psoriasis on the back of my scalp at the beginning of this year. By March, my scalp had redness and severe flaking.  ~ GF

I have been battling dry, flaky scalp for many years. Although it never itched or caused any discomfort, I was constantly picking at my head. I tried different shampoos, including several different anti-dandruff shampoos, and I switched out my other hair products, but nothing worked. I went to a dermatologist who recommended the same products I had already tried. It was really a devastating feeling.

Last month, I reviewed a NeoGenesis case study on a patient with terrible psoriasis on their scalp, who had amazing results. So, I applied the Hair Thickening Serum 2 times a day. Within 3 days, I could feel an amazing difference. I continued to apply it directly onto my scalp 2 times a day for a week. The results are astonishing! My scalp is back to a smooth even surface without the dry flakiness. As I run my fingers over my scalp, my scalp feels fabulous.

I can’t tell you how good it feels to have my normal scalp once again. Thank you NeoGenesis!!!! – LP
