Lasers and immune disorders

Your immune disorder must be in control. Lasers, including very gentle ones like C and B can worsen skin lupus and psoriasis, however if performed conservatively under the guidance of a Specialist, it CAN be done. There is still a risk of flaring up the underling disorder, and this risk must be discussed with your treating Specialist. Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Clear & Brilliant

For patients with autoimmune disease such as psoriasis, it is important to receive medical clearance from your PCP prior to starting laser treatments.

Good luck!
