Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that is classically characterized by thickened, red areas of skin covered with silvery scales. The extent of skin involvement can range from discrete, localized areas to generalized body involvement. The joints, nails, and mucous membranes may also be affected with the disease. Some cases of psoriasis are so mild that people don’t know they have it. Severe psoriasis may cover large areas of the body. Dermatologists can help even the most severe cases. Psoriasis is not contagious and cannot be passed from one person to another, but it is most likely to occur in members of the same family. In the United States, two out of every hundred people have psoriasis (four to five million people). There are approximately 150,000 new cases that occur each year.

Nail Fungus

Nail fungus or Onychomycosis is a very common fungal infection that causes thickening and yellowing of the nails on the hands and/or feet. Treatment options include oral medications as well as topical lacquers.

Hair Loss

Hair loss encompasses a group of conditions that can be affected by hormones, stress and family history. Initial blood tests are usually performed to rule out other underlying conditions to determine treatment.

Cysts

Most cysts are typically benign growths that can appear anywhere on the body. Treatment usually consists of a surgical procedure for successful removal.

Warts

Warts are benign tumors that commonly involve the skin and other epithelial tissues. The etiologic agents for these infections are a class of double-stranded DNA viruses called papillomaviruses. Warts are generally classified by their clinical features and morphology (e.g., common, flat, filiform) or by location (e.g., genital, plantar, respiratory papillomatosis).

Excessive sweating

Hyperhidrosis is a chronic medical disorder that results in the production of excessive sweat. A recent study determined that the condition – once thought to be rare – actually affects approximately 2.8 percent of the U.S. population, or 7.8 million people. Even more compelling, one out of three people surveyed with the condition said their sweating was intolerable or barely tolerable. Many sufferers said they were depressed and frustrated with daily activities, and they experienced interference with work and romance and had difficulty meeting people.

Photodynamic Therapy

PDT is a light based therapy for the treatment of actinic keratosis, pre-cancers. A topical solution, Levulan® Kerastick is first applied to the skin. The levulan is taken up by the damaged skin cells over the next hour. The patient is then placed under a Blue light which activates the Levulan. This destroys the pre- cancerous cells on the skin. This allows us to treat an entire area of skin instead of just 1 or 2 spots. Face, chest and arms are common areas we treat with this procedure. Although, we do see cosmetic benefits, this is usually covered by insurance companies as a medical treatment.
