Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease which commonly causes red scaling patches on the elbows and knees. It can occur anywhere on the body and ranges in severity. For years psoriasis was frustrating to treat due to a limited amount of treatment options. However, we now have a wider variety of treatments available in our armamentarium. The newly improved XTRAC Velocity Excimer laser is a safe, fast, and effective way to improve psoriasis without any pain. Biologic medications are also available to treat moderate to severe psoriasis with a safer side effect profile than the traditional oral medications used in years past. Biologic medications are either administered via subcutaneous injection by the patient at home or in our office depending on which medication is chosen. These treatment options are more convenient, more effective and safer for our psoriasis patients. Be proactive and set up your appointment with a dermatology provider to evaluate your psoriasis now so that you are prepared for the upcoming dry winter season.
