Considered a hyperproliferative immune disease, psoriasis is characterised by an ongoing cycle where new skin cells move to the outermost layer of the skin too quickly, resulting in chronic inflammation and a build-up of incomplete skin cells.

Psoriasis typically presents itself on flexion joint areas such as the knees and elbows, however it is not limited to these areas. Skin will appear thick, rough, inflamed and patchy. There is no cure for psoriasis, however symptoms can be effectively managed and improved with dermaviduals.
