Abstract

Although psoriasis is a common condition manifesting in the skin and joints, recent clinical evidence has shown health professionals that it is a systemic disease that is more than skin deep. The most recent guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (2012) on psoriasis offer a comprehensive evidence-base to psoriasis management. Aesthetic nurses have an important role with their clients who have psoriasis, in supporting them in coping with and treating psoriasis and having an awareness of how cosmetic treatments may affect psoriasis. This article aims to inform and update aesthetic nurses' knowledge of the psoriasis signs and symptoms, evidence-based treatment options and implications for cosmetic treatment.
