Psoriasis affects about 2% of the population. It can be treated with a variety of prescribed creams and medications.
Ultraviolet light treatment is also available on site at The Skin Lab and is used for the treatment of psoriasis. All light treatment programs are bulk billed.
In severe cases referral can be made to one of the specialist dermatologists for one of the newer biological agents that have proved to be very useful in the treatment of psoriasis.
