Psoriasis is a common skin condition affecting over 8 million men and women. If you suffer from psoriasis, staying up-to-date on current treatment methods can be highly beneficial for reducing symptoms. Comprehensive psoriasis treatment solutions are available from Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville for Gwinnett County residents.

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder where skin cells are produced at a faster rate. These skin cells build up to form dry and inflamed patches on the skin. Several types of psoriasis exist with a wide range of symptoms. This skin condition can be caused by genetics and malfunctions of the body’s immune system. Psoriasis can be associated with other health conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, anxiety, depression and heart disease.

Symptoms of Psoriasis

Psoriasis symptoms can vary from person to person. The symptoms of psoriasis include thick skin patches or nails, cracked skin, bleeding, itching, rashes and stiff or swollen joints. While symptoms can appear anywhere on the body, psoriasis can be commonly seen on the scalp, face, hands, feet, nails and skin folds. Triggers for flare ups can include stress, skin injuries, illness and weather changes. Cycles of symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks and symptoms can disappear for short periods of time before recurring again.

Custom Psoriasis Treatment in Gwinnett County

Medical Dermatology Specialists provides customized psoriasis treatment plans for Lawrenceville families in Gwinnett County. Psoriasis symptoms can be managed through topical treatments, phototherapy with UV light and stress management. Biologics can help reduce symptoms through injections that block certain functions of your immune system.

Before treatment can begin, a dermatologist will need to diagnose the presence of psoriasis. A skin biopsy may be necessary to rule out other skin disorders. The treatment options chosen will depend on the severity of symptoms and response to previous therapies.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
