Psoriasis Treatment Centers Provide Treatment and Support

World Psoriasis Day 29 October 2024

Inspiring Hope and Empowering Individuals with Psoriasis

Many people will turn to psoriasis treatment centers as a base for their knowledge and understanding of the condition. Unfortunately, the United States has relatively few treatment centers given psoriasis affects one-in-50 people in some way.

However, those centers that do exist provide a place where the disease is understood, different treatment options are discussed and patients meet other sufferers to share their experiences. You can also find places abroad that brand themselves as treatment centers for psoriasis and many patients find the vacation and rest to be as effective as the treatments offered.

Psoriasis Treatment Centers Favorable Features

If you are staying within America, you will have a few local choices of psoriasis treatment centers depending on where in the country you live.

Each of them will have your condition at the heart of any program that they offer, that you will want to look for these characteristics to get the best treatment:

  • Coverage by your health plan – As psoriasis is non-fatal and currently has no proven cure, many health care insurers will be wary of unofficial psoriasis treatment centers using more natural or homeopathic treatments. You will need to check that your insurance company will cover the fees of attending the center before you sign up for treatment.
  • Types of treatment available – Your doctor will be able to prescribe most steroid based medicines for you to take at your own leisure. You should be looking for a treatment center that can offer you something over and above, such as laser treatment or immersive therapy. These may cost extra but will be more effective in treating severe cases of psoriasis.
  • Overnight accommodation – Some treatment centers provide day care while others will operate as a small hospital with beds for inpatients. The severity of your condition and how far you would have to travel to the nearest hotel if you want treatment beyond one day, should determine your choice of service.

Going Abroad

Looking at psoriasis treatment centers based abroad comes with its own set of advantages and worries. Overall, they tend to be cheaper and more relaxed, but in some cases, you will find the quality of care to be significantly less than you would find in the average American hospital. However, some of the best treatment centers abroad offer superior services, such as

  • The Dead Sea – (read the experiences I've made at the Dead Sea) The combination of the salt rich water and the protection against UV light that is offered by being lower than sea level makes the Dead Sea a popular treatment destination for psoriasis sufferers. You can find organizations that will plan day trips and treatment days as part of your vacation. I've been there several years, to me it is the greatest help I could get!

  • The Avene Spa Center, France – This dedicated treatment center in the south of France uses natural spring water to provide relief and moisture to your skin. The course runs for three weeks but you will be staying in classic surroundings with a team of dedicated health care professionals to look after your every need.

  • Blue Lagoon, Iceland – Not only is the Blue Lagoon a massive tourist destination for its natural beauty, but it also offers some incredibly health benefits to people with all sorts of skin conditions. The silica and algae that give the Blue Lagoon its color help to break down the plaque deposits that are a feature of moderate to severe psoriasis.

In each of these foreign locations, psoriasis treatment centers cater specifically to English-speaking patients. It is highly unlikely that your insurance company will cover the expense of these centers, so you may need to save up to afford the expensive treatments available. Keep in mind that a cure for psoriasis has not yet been found, but you will be paying for relief from the symptoms.
