Frederick, MD practice offers laser treatment to improve skin after psoriasis
Frederick, MD area patients who live with a condition such as psoriasis understand how it can greatly affect their life. Psoriasis is a skin disorder that causes a build-up in skin cells that make scaly, red, itchy patches on the skin. This condition develops in cycles, and flare-ups can result from trauma, stress, and injuries. While some patients do well with steroid creams and other topicals for mild psoriasis, others may have a more severe condition that requires further treatment. This is when patients may be advised to try treatment options including laser therapy to improve the skin, before, during, and even after psoriasis flare-ups.
Dr. Ron Prussick and his team encourage Frederick, MD area patients to take the time to learn about laser therapy and understand how it can dramatically improve psoriasis. It requires fewer appointments than other light-lased therapies, which may require a strict regimen of several sessions a week for many months. Instead, laser therapy can be done less often and can be provided with higher doses of light to reach deeper for more long-term results. It is done in short 15-30 minute treatments depending on the size of the area being addressed, and patients can go about the remainder of their day with little to no interruption.
Laser therapy can be used not only for psoriasis but for other skin conditions as well. It has been shown to be successful in vitiligo and in addressing fine lines and wrinkles, acne, acne scarring, and uneven texture and tone of the skin. Dr. Ron Prussick uses this amazing therapy in general and cosmetic dermatology for a wide range of problems.
