What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis, a chronic skin condition affecting millions worldwide, is marked by red, itchy, and scaly patches on the skin's surface. Cryotherapy, a cutting-edge technique, offers a chilling solution to combat this pesky condition. By exposing affected areas to subzero temperatures, cryotherapy works its magic by reducing inflammation, relieving itching, and promoting overall skin health.

Cryotherapy as a treatment for Psoriasis
Cryotherapy, a treatment that involves exposing the body or specific areas to extremely cold temperatures, offers a promising approach to managing psoriasis symptoms. Cryotherapy was first evaluated for psoriasis in 1987 by Scoggings who reported a response rate of 67-80 percent in 35 patients. Cryotherapy as a treatment for psoriasis (escholarship.org)
While the exact mechanisms of how cryotherapy treats psoriasis are still being explored, there are several proposed ways in which this therapy can provide relief:
Reducing Inflammation: Cryotherapy works by temporarily constricting blood vessels in the skin, leading to a decrease in blood flow to the treated areas. This constriction helps reduce inflammation, a key factor in psoriasis flare-ups. By calming the immune response and decreasing inflammation, cryotherapy can alleviate redness, swelling, and discomfort associated with psoriasis plaques.
Itching Relief: Psoriasis often comes with intense itching, which can be quite distressing. Cryotherapy's cold temperatures can help numb the affected skin and provide temporary relief from itchiness. The sensation of cold can override the itch signals sent by the nerve endings, providing a soothing effect.
Slowing Down Skin Cell Growth: In individuals with psoriasis, skin cells reproduce and mature at an accelerated rate, leading to the formation of thick, scaly patches. Cryotherapy may help slow down this abnormal skin cell growth, allowing the skin to regain a more normal cellular turnover process. By promoting a healthier skin cell cycle, cryotherapy can potentially reduce the severity and frequency of psoriasis outbreaks.
Triggering a Reset in the Immune System: Cryotherapy's cold temperatures may have an impact on the immune system, which plays a significant role in the development of psoriasis. It is believed that cryotherapy can modulate the immune response by regulating cytokine production and balancing immune cell activity. This modulation can help regulate the immune system's abnormal responses and potentially reduce psoriasis symptoms.
It's important to note that the effectiveness of cryotherapy as a treatment for psoriasis can vary from person to person. As with any treatment, individuals who are considering pursuing cryotherapy should speak with their health care providers to discuss the individual risks and benefits.
Red Light Therapy
Stimulation of Cellular Function: Red light therapy has been shown to stimulate cellular metabolism and activity. It enhances the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the energy currency of cells. By increasing ATP production, red light therapy promotes cellular function, including skin cell turnover and regeneration. This can help normalize the excessive growth and turnover of skin cells that occurs in psoriasis, leading to an improvement in symptoms.
Promotion of Wound Healing: Psoriasis lesions can cause damage to the skin barrier, leading to impaired wound healing. Red light therapy has been shown to accelerate the healing process by promoting the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) and increasing collagen production. This can aid in the repair of damaged skin and support the healing of psoriatic plaques.
Modulation of Immune Response: Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition characterized by an overactive immune response. Red light therapy has been found to have immunomodulatory effects, helping to regulate immune system activity. It can modulate the production of inflammatory cytokines and balance immune cell function. By modulating the immune response, red light therapy may help reduce the severity of psoriasis symptoms.
