Each dose of SKYRIZI is two injections given under the skin.
For the first month of treatment, two doses are needed to get started. After that, maintaining your treatment takes just one dose every 12 weeks.
Plaques are actually a symptom of an imbalance in your body.
While the exact cause of plaque psoriasis is unknown, your body may produce too much of a protein called IL-23.
IL-23 is one of several proteins that may contribute to excess inflammation inside the body, which can lead to painful, red, itchy, or burning plaques on the skin.
This is where SKYRIZI comes in. SKYRIZI is an immune protein similar to those produced by your own body. It works by binding to the excess IL-23. This can help reduce the overproduction of IL-23 in your immune system.
