What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an autoinflammatory and mostly genetic disorder that affects your skin. Generally, psoriasis manifests itself as red, itchy, and swollen patches on your skin. If you think you have psoriasis, call our office today to schedule a consultation with one of our leading board-certified dermatologists.
Our dermatologists, Dr. Green and Dr. Walia, are considered to be experts in psoriasis treatment. Our doctors lecture nationally and internationally on the latest science and treatment for psoriasis and are currently on the medical board and the President’s Council of the National Psoriasis Foundation. Dr. Green has spent 10 years as a member of the board of trustees of the National Psoriasis Foundation.
At the Aesthetic & Dermatology Center, we almost always have an ongoing clinical trial to evaluate the latest upcoming treatments for psoriasis.
Commonly Used Treatments
Although psoriasis cannot be cured, it can be treated. After a thorough examination, your board-certified dermatologist will create a treatment plan designed to help you reach your optimal state of wellness. In some cases, it can be asymptomatic for months, years, or even permanently.
Here at Aesthetic and Dermatology Center, we use the latest technologies in psoriasis treatment, and we frequently employ the following:
- Topical medication
- Excimer laser therapy
- Narrow band UVB
- Biologic and oral agents
The type of treatment you receive will depend on a variety of factors including age, medical history, lifestyle habits, impact of the condition on your mental health, and the location, severity, and type of psoriasis you have.
We understand that persistent skin irritation can impact your overall quality of life. Visit Rockville’s and the greater Washington DC area’s leading dermatology center for a thorough examination and a personalized treatment plan.
