Psoriasis has always been a frustrating and uncomfortable skin condition, but here at the office of Dr. Ghatan, our Brooklyn psoriasis doctor goal is not only to offer treatment, but to find the most advanced, effective, quick, and safe ways to address this skin condition. And with laser treatment for psoriasis, we’ve met that goal.
Until this state-of-the-art laser treatment was developed, the most common way to deal with psoriasis was with topical creams and gels or oral steroids. And those are still useful for some cases. As impressive as the results are, not everyone is a good candidate for it, so it’s good to know that you’re not left without options. However, in many situations where you have mild to moderate psoriasis, it will be the best choice. Our Brooklyn psoriasis doctor also can use laser treatment for hard-to-treat areas, which include knees, elbows, and the scalp. Laser is also an ideal form of treatment when you have psoriasis that has not been sufficiently or effectively treated with other methods. It requires no daily maintenance, and in approximately eight sessions with our Brooklyn psoriasis doctor, you can be completely free of lesions. The process itself is painless. It consists of using a handpiece against the affected skin with the laser beam achieving a precise focus that only hits the lesions, and not the surrounding skin. As a result, you can rest assured that your skin will not be unnecessarily put at risk for premature aging, as can happen when healthy areas of the skin are exposed to ultraviolet light. Furthermore, you won’t have to be concerned with easy bruising, stretch marks, or thinning of skin as can happen with other types of treatments.
There are many reasons to feel positive and confident about laser treatments. Schedule an appointment to come in and have your skin evaluated by our Brooklyn psoriasis doctor.
