Dr. Roger Koreen and the team of the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, NY see many patients who are struggling with psoriasis.
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is the overgrowth of skin cells that develop into white areas of plaque on the skin. Psoriasis can develop anywhere on the body, and, can be extremely embarrassing for the patients when it is in highly visible areas. It is important for sufferers to speak with a dedicated dermatologist who has experience in providing effective treatment.
How is psoriasis treated?
Treatment for psoriasis varies, depending on the type of psoriasis and the severity of the condition. There are several methods available, including topical creams and oral medications. However, many of our patients have benefitted from phototherapy. Phototherapy for psoriasis continues to grow in popularity as patients realize how effective it can be. Phototherapy targets the treatment area with specialized light to slow the growth of the affected skin cells in that area. This is a precise solution that can be used on active areas of psoriasis. Patients will notice gradual improvements in the treated area, which can last a relatively long period of time.
