What is Psoriasis?
Most of us have heard of psoriasis. Not only have we seen television ads for medications to treat this common disease, many of us know someone who has a form of it. And while only 2 to 3 percent of the population globally develops psoriasis, that figure includes 8 million Americans. Still, other than the hallmark scaly red patches on the skin, what do we know about psoriasis?
Can Psoriasis Be Cured?
Psoriasis is a “chronic relapsing disease,” which means that it may come and go but it does not go away completely. It may require therapy over a long period of time. However, due to breakthroughs in the understanding of psoriasis over the last 15 years, highly effective therapies are now available.
Our Approach & Expertise
In treating your psoriasis, our board-certified dermatologist will not only consider the severity of the disease but also its effect on your quality of life. With guidance, you will learn how to develop a good skin care routine, recognize the triggers to flare-ups, and, when necessary, modify your lifestyle to prevent the psoriasis from becoming worse. With personalized consultation and regular follow-up, you can gain control over the condition.
