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.
Clinic founder, Prof. Michael Tirant (PhD), has been involved in dermatology research for over 30 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. He also found that some of the triggers were blood group related and this work was published in Dermatologic Therapy journal.
Thankfully, the evidence continues to grow and support these findings, validating the importance of managing detrimental lifestyle factors such as poor sleep quality, unhealthy diet, stress and environmental exposure when treating chronic skin diseases.
Our research and development team focuses primarily on exploring the actions of various herbal bioactive compounds, including how 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, ground-breaking approaches and delivery methods in skin treatment.
