Psoriasis Treatment In New Jersey

Psoriasis is an autoimmune inflammatory condition that causes skin cells to be replaced more rapidly than usual and is characterized by flare-ups of red, scaly patches of skin that may itch, burn, flake, or even bleed. No two patients experience psoriasis in exactly the same way, but the condition is universally uncomfortable, unpredictable, and detracts from the overall quality of life.

Psoriasis Symptoms

Psoriasis can appear anywhere on the body, but most frequently occurs on the scalp, lower back, knees and elbows. It is not contagious.. People with psoriasis may experience flare-ups triggered by stress, infections, alcohol consumption, changes in weather/climate, and more. This skin condition also often runs in families.

There are several types of psoriasis and each may present differently from one patient to the next. That being said, common symptoms of the condition include:

  • Red, scaly skin patches
  • Itching, burning, or bleeding skin
  • Flaking or peeling skin
  • Dry skin cells
  • Thickened skin
  • Nails that are thickened or ridged
  • Stiff, swollen, and/or painful joints

Psoriasis Treatments We Offer

Although there is no cure for psoriasis, our leading dermatological team will develop an effective and personalized treatment plan to help you control and properly manage your symptoms. Treatment of psoriasis depends on a number of factors including the specific type of psoriasis, the size and severity of the affected areas, and how the patient responds to initial treatment.

Some of the treatment options currently available at Dermatology Institute and Laser Center include topical treatments, such as retinoids, corticosteroids, or vitamin D creams, which can limit inflammation and skin cell growth. Other psoriasis treatment methods can include oral medications, injectables, laser therapy, light therapy, and more. Often, a combined treatment approach is most effective.

Great staff and Dr’s in this location and also North Bergen. I have a very delicate skin condition (perioral dermatitis) and I remember I went to different Dr’s trying to figure out what I had this rash on my face and no Dr could’ve pinpoint the problem. As soon as Dr.Ross checked me, she pinpointed my problem and gave me a solution. I am so thankful for Dr. Ross and the rest of the staff and Dr’s.

Dr Ros was so thorough and compassionate. She took her time, listening to all of my elderly mom's questions and concerns. It was a delicate situation and Dr. Ros was excellent!! Alex prepped my mom before she saw Dr. Ros. Without Alex's suggestion for my mom to get a body check, the hidden pre-cancerous spot might not have been detected and treated. Thank you for the extra care. Mabel was also part of the excellent team. Thank you. If I could, I would give 10 stars!

Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory autoimmune disease that causes skin cells to grow abnormally fast and pile up on the top surface of the skin. Characterized by patches of red, bumpy, and scaly skin, the condition’s scope and severity can vary greatly from patient to patient.

Some different types of psoriasis include Plaque Psoriasis, Guttate Psoriasis, Pustular Psoriasis, Inverse Psoriasis, and Erythrodermic Psoriasis. Book an appointment at Dermatology Institute and Laser Center to learn more about which type of psoriasis you have and move forward with a customized treatment plan that will put you on the fastest road to recovery.

Anyone can get psoriasis, though the condition is more common in adults than in children. It’s an autoimmune disease and is thought to stem from a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Some factors that may increase the likelihood of developing psoriasis include:

  • A family history of the condition
  • Certain types of infections
  • Certain medications
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Vitamin deficiencies

No matter the cause of your psoriasis, the proper treatment approach is key. Speak with the experienced team of dermatologists at Dermatology Institute and Laser Center for more information.

  • Skin injuries
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Hormonal changes
  • Tattoos and piercings
  • Sunburn
  • Immune system disorders

Individual patients may also have unique psoriasis triggers based on their specific body composition and medical history.
