When Sunshine and Kisses Aren't Enough: Healthcare Blogs

In some cases, when you're not feeling well, a bit of sleep and some orange juice can clear up what ails you. If a child gets a small injury, a kiss can often do the trick. However, when nature's solutions and tender loving care don't cut it -- you need a health care clinic that you can trust. Hi, my name is Pam, and while raising four kids, I dealt with numerous health issues from the common cold, to broken bones, to a chronic autoimmune disorder with my youngest. Our family health care center was essential during that process, and I want to share tips and ideas with others who may be in the same situations.

Is Cryocare Or Laser Therapy Right For Treating Your Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that can result in the development of thickened, scaling skin. The condition can affect various areas of the body, including the knees and scalp. Although the condition is not curable yet, it can be treated so that periods of remission occur. In addition to the use of traditional medicine, some people have turned to alternative medicine. Here are just a few that you can try.  

Cryocare Therapy 

Cryocare therapy, or cryotherapy, involves the use of liquid nitrogen to alleviate inflammation that occurs in the body. Since psoriasis is considered to be an inflammatory disease, you can experience relief from the treatments. In addition to improving the blood flow in your body, it can help to reduce the joint pain and soreness that sometimes occurs with the condition.  

The therapy sessions are relatively short. You will require more than one treatment to continue the benefits that you experience. The medical care provider will help determine the right frequency for therapy sessions.  

In addition to helping with psoriasis, cryocare facial therapy can also be beneficial in brightening dark spots on your skin, decreasing wrinkles and lines, and increasing the production of collagen.  

Laser Therapy 

Another possible solution to psoriasis is laser therapy. The lasers work by delivering ultraviolet light to select areas of your skin. During the treatment, lasers rely on heat to destroy extra blood vessels that are in your skin that could be helping the progression of the psoriasis.  

The lasers do not actually touch the skin and it is considered a safe treatment. The skin surrounding the affected areas is not impacted by the lasers. The medical care provider will give you goggles to wear throughout the session to protect your eyes. The therapy is generally used for people who suffer from mild to moderate cases of psoriasis.  

As with the cryocare therapy, you will need more than one session to continue the benefits of the therapy. However, the frequency of the treatments might be more with laser therapy. How often you need treatments will depend on the progress that is made and how severe your symptoms are.  

Before deciding which type of therapy is right for you, consult with medical care providers for both options. You can further explore the benefits of each and even learn whether or not it would be ideal for you. You can also consult with your regular doctor about the therapies.
