What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory condition which causes red thick scaly patches on the skin. It is caused by an overactive immune system which allows skin cells to replicate up to ten times faster than normal cells. This creates red, thick, raised flaky patches. The most common sites for psoriasis are the elbows, knees and scalp. The red patches can be itchy and often form at areas of skin injury, a phenomenon called koebnerization. The treatment for psoriasis includes topical medications, light therapy, systemic therapy and biologics. The treatment is determined by the severity and extent of the psoriasis. Patients with psoriasis have an increased chance of developing other health conditions including psoriatic arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and metabolic syndrome (which includes hypertension, obesity, cardiovascular disease, hyperlipidemia, gout and type 2 diabetes). SkinCenter offers all treatments for psoriasis including UVB phototherapy. 
In February Jeuveau was FDA approved as the newest form of botulinum toxin. It is designed to work as well as Botox and is injected into the same areas to treat unwanted expression lines. It relaxes the muscles smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

Emepelle is the first and only skincare line which prevents accelerated skin aging by using the restorative benefits of MEP Technology. In the years leading up to and during menopause women experience a multitude of changes in their skin due to estrogen deficit skin which includes increased dryness, thinning and wrinkles. Women will lose 30% of their collagen during their first five years of menopause with a subsequent 2.1% decrease every year thereafter. Emepelle uses MEP which is a non-hormonal collagen amplifier which acts only on the skin to safely and effectively restore lost collagen. MEP is not estrogen or a hormone replacement and is not able to cause effects anywhere else in the body. Emepelle leads to an improvement in dullness, laxity, dryness, atrophy and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for more youthful radiant skin. The Emepelle product line includes a daily serum and a night cream.
