Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that causes changes to your skin. The condition is not curable, and the goal of psoriasis treatment is to alleviate your symptoms. Texas Dermatology offers psoriasis treatment for children, teenagers and adults in San Antonio, Boerne, New Braunfels, Kenedy, and surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Psoriasis Treatment?
Psoriasis treatment is recommended for patients who have a chronic condition that causes scaly, inflamed, thick, red skin patches. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder and cannot be cured. Treatment at Texas Dermatology aims to help patients better manage their symptoms so that psoriasis does not affect their quality of life.
How Much Does Psoriasis Treatment Cost?
Our pricing for psoriasis treatment varies and is based upon individual treatment plans that are defined during the consultation appointment. After you discuss your psoriasis with one of our dermatology practitioners, you are given several options for treatment. Once you decide which treatment is best for you, we will give you information about the cost. Texas Dermatology accepts CareCredit® to give our patients options for financing the cost of psoriasis treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Psoriasis Treatment?
Our psoriasis treatment helps to reduce the inflammation in the skin and may improve skin appearance. With continued treatment for your psoriasis, the skin may heal and blend with the surrounding skin. Psoriasis treatment is a long-term option, as the symptoms often reappear.
Am I a Candidate for Psoriasis Treatment?
If you have been diagnosed with psoriasis or if you have areas of abnormal skin, you may be a good candidate for our psoriasis treatment. We invite you to schedule a consultation to learn more about our psoriasis treatment options.
How is Psoriasis Treatment Performed with the Excimer Laser?
Skin lasers help with cosmetic and medical skin concerns. Our Excimer laser emits ultraviolet light that is proven to reduce symptoms of psoriasis and help the skin heal. We prefer this technique because it is useful for areas that are more difficult to treat with creams and other approaches. The laser energy is applied in short bursts, and the procedure is comfortable for patients.
What is the Recovery Like After Psoriasis Treatment?
No downtime is needed after your psoriasis treatment with our excimer laser. The skin may feel sensitive and have mild redness for the first day. You may notice some of the skin flaking after a few days. For your treatment with the Excimer laser, expect to need up to 36 treatments performed two or three times per week over a 12-week period. Maintenance treatments are needed to keep the condition under control.
What is the Prognosis After Psoriasis Treatment?
While psoriasis cannot be cured, our unique treatment options help you to manage symptoms and improve quality of life. With regular treatment, it is not uncommon for patients to experience full remission of psoriasis for long periods of time.
