What Causes Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic disease that is caused by a rapid growth of skin cells. The immune system sends faulty signals to the skin cells causing them to grow too quickly. The body is unable to shed these extra skin cells and they begin to pile up on the skin’s surface causing psoriasis to appear. Olansky Dermatology & Aesthetics can treat your mild or severe psoriasis with the treatment solution best for you.
