Psoriasis is one of the most common skin conditions that patients seek the advice of a Dermatologist for. In the United States psoriasis is estimated to affect over 5 million people. Most cases of psoriasis are not inherited; however, there are many examples of psoriasis affecting many generations of families. It can present at any age, and the clinical course is unpredictable.
There are many different forms of psoriasis including: guttate, inverse, plaque type, scalp psoriasis, nail psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, pustular psoriasis, and erythrodermic psoriasis.
Psoriasis can be localized to one region of the body or it can be generalized.
There are a number of treatment options for psoriasis including topical treatments, oral medications, injections, phototherapy, biologics and laser. Laser treatments have been highly effective for many of Dr. Stoller's patients. The laser treatments are performed in the office under Dr. Stoller's supervision.
