How can I take control of my psoriasis?

If you suffer from psoriasis, you are among the millions of Americans who also experience the frustration of trying to find relief. Those with psoriasis know that it doesn’t just affect the skin—it has the potential to affect the entire body and overall health. At Skin Surgery & Laser Specialists in NJ and NYC, we are prepared to help you find relief from your primary concerns with psoriasis. While our priority is your skin health, we also have the resources to help you take control of psoriasis as a whole.

What is psoriasis?

A chronic condition, psoriasis is characterized by a rapid development of skin cells. While normal, healthy skin creates new cells every day, it also sheds cells at around the same rate. This allows the new skin cells to simply replace the old ones.

In patients with psoriasis, the new skin cells produce at a much more rapid rate than the old cells shed. This causes the new cells to accumulate under the skin, creating itchy, scaly patches. Such patches can sometimes be painful.

While psoriasis is generally considered to be a skin condition, it can also affect other areas of the body, such as the joints. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, we help our patients find relief from an array of psoriasis symptoms. To learn more, please contact our offices in New York or New Jersey.
