The Science of Flaw Correction
Perfect skin just isn’t a reality for most of us, but for those of us who were either born with imperfections or developed them later in life, even having normal skin might seem like an unattainable dream. While we can’t work miracles, our MagnifaSkin clinicians can greatly reduce, or sometimes even completely erase the appearance of these flaws. Contact us today for a free consultation and take the first step to having the appearance you deserve.
Psoriasis, the unsightly and uncomfortable itchy patches of raised, red and scaly skin is largely genetic. If you’re unlucky enough to be among the 7.5 million people in the U.S. affected by this condition, and find that the usual steroid creams either don’t work for you, or produce unwanted side effects, you don’t need to suffer any longer. At MagnifaSkin MedSpa , we can help.
Similar in effect to the more traditional light therapy for psoriasis, laser treatments provide much stronger pulses of light which reach deeper in to the affected skin, producing relief in fewer sessions. Laser treatments will give relief to most of those suffering from mild to moderate psoriasis, usually within 8 to 10 treatments, and in some cases dramatic improvement in the condition. Unfortunately these treatments are not effective for those with psoriasis on large areas of the body. In addition, you should not have laser treatments for psoriasis if you have any of the following:
- Lupus or scleroderma
- Sun sensitivity
- Xeroderma pigmentosum (an inherited disease that causes sensitivity to sunlight)
- Risks for, or a history of skin cancer
- A condition that requires you to take medications that make you sensitive to the sun
Finally, you should be aware that some patients may experience some of the following side effects:
- Temporary redness, itching, burning or stinging
- Purple-colored spots on the treated areas
- Darkening or lightening of the skin in the treated areas
- Scarring (very rare)

Psoriasis Treatment with the Aerolase LightPod Neo
Actual patients treated for Psoriasis with the Aerolase Laser.
All laser treatments at MagnifaSkin MedSpa are delivered with the revolutionary new Aerolase® LightPod Neo® medical laser. Delivering light pulses 30 – 50 times faster than other lasers, the Neo provides virtually pain free treatment. In fact many patients report feeling nothing at all other than a slight warming sensation. Other lasers, which deliver higher energy pulses of light at much longer intervals, result in the sensation of having a rubber band snapped against your skin. This is due to the large amount of energy being delivered with each pulse. Because the Neo reduces the amount of energy delivered with each pulse while greatly increasing the number of pulses, energy delivery is ‘smoothed out’, resulting in little or no sensation for your sensitive skin.
