Psoriasis can cause itchy or uncomfortable rashes to form that can last weeks.

These treatments are available to men and women living in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Fort Lauderdale, FL.
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes itchy or dry rashes to develop on the skin. The exact cause of this condition is unknown, so most treatments aim to minimize the symptoms and provide lasting relief. Still, these rashes can break out at any time, causing discomfort and self-consciousness. There are a number of treatments available for managing psoriasis symptoms, one of the most effective being excimer laser treatments.
What is the Excimer Laser?
The excimer laser is an advanced laser device that delivers concentrated ultraviolet energy to the skin. This is a comfortable treatment that produces results quickly, visibly breaking up psoriasis outbreaks. With this treatment, patients can reduce the length of their psoriasis outbreaks so they can enjoy clear skin more often. We typically recommend a series of two or three weekly excimer laser treatments for psoriasis.
How Else is Psoriasis Treated?
In addition to excimer laser treatments, topical and oral medications can be effective treatments for psoriasis. In some cases, we may also recommend photodynamic therapy. During your consultation, we will assess your skin and your treatment goals to determine the best treatment option for managing your psoriasis. This may include a combination of treatments to help you achieve the best results.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Psoriasis Treatment?
After your psoriasis treatment, you will notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of the skin. If you are using topical or oral medications, you will have to maintain regular use of the medications to ensure the best results. In most cases, psoriasis treatments require little to no downtime and allow patients to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. For some patients, multiple treatment sessions will be necessary.
