Derma Smoothe FS Information:
Derma Smoothe FS Oil comes in a 118ml size and is used to treat eczema and or psoriasis.
The key to treating scalp Psoriasis is moisturizing the scalp. The patient with scalp Psoriasis presents with a greatly thickened layer of the epidermis, what we see as scale and plaque, which is in part due to the inflammatory nature of the disease. DERMA-SMOOTHE/FS® (SCALP OIL) by virtue of its peanut oil vehicle, is easily spread on the scalp and softens the thickened skin layer as well as enhances delivery and release of the steroid to the skin. Subsequently, the outer most part of the thickened epidermis sloughs and inflammation is controlled, resulting in a healthy clear scalp. Every patient can expect the results pictured below.
For the treatment of scalp Psoriasis, wet scalp thoroughly with water. Apply a thin film of DERMA-SMOOTHE/FS® (SCALP OIL), massage well and cover scalp with the shower cap contained in the package. Leave on overnight or for a minimum of 4 hours before washing off. Wash hair with a non-medicated shampoo and rinse thoroughly. Repeat daily until desired results are obtained. In clinical studies, 81% of patients experienced good (50%) to complete clearing (100%) within 1 to 3 weeks of daily use. DERMA-SMOOTHE/FS® (SCALP OIL) does not contain ingredients that would affect hair color. However, it is recommended that you not apply irritants to your scalp until you are symptom-free.
