Clinical Areas/Dermatology Psoriasis - Exhibition Animation
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that appears on the skin.
It occurs when the immune system mistakes the skin cells as a pathogen, and sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells.
This slideshow displays some key images from a HD portrait animation. The movie was developed for an exhibition to help show the true physical and physiological effects to psoriasissufferers.
