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