AARON, A SKYRIZI PATIENT

Aaron (V.O.):
Life with clear skin has been awesome.

Aaron (V.O.):
After 20 years of treatments for my psoriasis, I’ve learned that you cannot give up…

Aaron (V.O.):
…that I was going to keep fighting until I found something that worked for me.

On-screen text:
That I was gonna keep fighting until I found something that worked for me.

Aaron (V.O.):
I was just very candid and open with my physician about my desire to try new medications and…

Aaron (V.O.):
…I just kept working and kept exploring those options, and, you know, that path led me to try SKYRIZI.

Aaron (V.O.):
It only took a matter of weeks for me to start seeing a big difference.

On-screen text:
In clinical trials, 3 out of 4 people achieved 90% clearer skin at 4 months, after just two doses.

Aaron (V.O.):
I could tell the inflammation was dying down...

On-screen text:
At 4 months, on average, people reported a significant improvement in the pain, itching, burning, and redness of psoriasis, and some even said they had no symptoms.

Aaron (V.O.):
…I could tell that the itch was reducing...

On-screen text:
The itch was reducing

Aaron (V.O.):
…And then, I could start seeing the actual raised areas reducing.

Aaron (V.O.):
So, I was always a little more excited with each passing day…

On-screen text:
Nearly 6 out of 10 people ACHIEVED 100% CLEAR SKIN at one year.

Aaron (V.O.):
…just to see how exactly clear I could possibly get, which I'm happy to say is 100%.

Aaron (V.O.):
There was a time when I never thought I would get 100% clearance on my skin, because I felt like I had a case that was severe enough to discourage me.

Aaron (V.O.):
To know that I’ve been able to achieve that for extended periods of time is just a thrill to me.

On-screen text:
Most who achieved clear skin at 4 months kept it through 1 year.

Aaron (V.O.):
Without plaques on my skin, I feel amazing.

On-screen text:
I feel amazing!

Aaron (V.O.):
I can go out and think about other stuff that you should be concerned with rather than your skin.
