Psoriasis is a common skin disease for which there is no cure. The good news is there are treatments that can make it go into remission and give the skin a normal appearance. If you have psoriasis in Estes Park, there are various treatments that we can prescribe according to the severity of your condition.
Topical treatments are ointments and creams that you apply to the affected areas. They are typically effective for mild to moderate psoriasis and if the disease is severe, they can be combined with other treatments.
Light therapy may be combined with medications. This therapy may be used for widespread psoriasis, single patches and psoriasis that does not respond to other treatments. There are also different kinds or oral or injected medications. These treatments are called systemic and they are usually meant to be used for short periods.
It’s important to understand that each case of psoriasis is unique, so each treatment is going to be customized based on the patient’s wants and needs. During a consultation at our office in Estes Park or Longmont, our board-certified dermatologist may assess your case and then determine which method of treatment is likely to give you the best results.
