What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin condition that results in a build-up of excess skin cells on the skin's surface. This will present as red, itchy patches covered with white scales. It can be found in any part of the body but mainly affects the knees, elbows, torso, and scalp.

At Dr. Rami Hamed Center, we understand the physical and emotional impact that psoriasis can have on your life. That's why our team of highly trained dermatologists is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to your needs.

Causes of Psoriasis:

The root cause of psoriasis is an overreactive immune system causing skin inflammation

Your body is designed to destroy foreign cells such as bacteria for protection. However, an overreactive immune system will mistake healthy cells for foreign cells, destroying your healthy skin cells. This leads to inflammation and a rapid turnover of skin cells, presenting as skin plaques and shedding.
