We are proud to be a thriving research and medical dermatology practice that offers clinical trials in psoriasis treatment, offering the most cutting-edge treatment methods available to our patients.
Psoriasis symptoms can be mild or severe. Patients are often embarrassed by this skin disease. In fact, studies show that severe psoriasis has a greater impact on patients’ lives than heart failure, diabetes and kidney disease. Plaque psoriasis, the most common form, appears as well defined thick areas of red and scaly skin. It may itch, but not always. Although psoriasis is not limited to a certain area of the body, it typically develops on the scalp, elbows and knees. At Medical Dermatology Specialists, we understand the psychological and physical discomfort psoriasis brings. Dr. Weisman and our team of experts are devoted to finding a successful treatment plan to relieve your psoriasis symptoms.
What Causes Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic disease that is caused by a rapid growth of skin cells. The immune system sends faulty signals to the skin cells causing them to grow too quickly. Because the body cannot shed these extra skin cells, they begin to pile up on the skin’s surface causing psoriasis to appear. Medical Dermatology Specialists has the experience and expertise you need to get long-term solutions to your chronic skin diseases.
