Science, Research and Innovation

At Psoriasis Eczema Clinic, we are dedicated to continuously grow and share our knowledge of the latest developments in science, research and innovation in Integrative Dermatology.

Our founder, Prof. Michael Tirant, has been involved in dermatology research for over 40 years, investigating triggers of a number of chronic skin diseases. In the early 80s, his research showed that alcohol and tobacco smoking exacerbate psoriasis, while diet and nutrition play major roles in the management of the disease.

Thankfully, mainstream science is catching up, validating the importance of managing detrimental lifestyle factors such as poor sleep quality, unhealthy diet, stress, and environmental exposure when treating skin disease.

Prof. Tirant frequently collaborates with international universities and hospitals
to educate dermatologists on the benefits of integrative dermatology protocols for the treatment of severe skin conditions.

Our research and development team, focuses primarily on exploring the actions of various natural, active compounds, including the ways in which they can heal the skin and be applied through therapeutic topical treatments. Staying up to date with the latest research around skin physiology, including the microbiome, provides opportunities for new, groundbreaking approaches in skin treatment.

As a pioneer in Integrative Dermatology, Prof. Tirant believes in combining the best of both conventional and alternative methods for the treatment of chronic skin disorders.
