Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis can produce a range of symptoms and affect multiple areas of the body. If you are struggling with psoriasis, you may want to consider psoriasis treatment at Goodman Dermatology. We offer these treatments to the residents of Woodstock, Dawsonville and Roswell, GA.

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes scaly rashes to form on the skin. These rashes are often raised from the skin’s surface and have a red appearance, making them quite noticeable to the eye and to touch. Most psoriasis symptoms are cosmetic, but psoriasis rashes can also cause itching, burning and other uncomfortable symptoms.

Psoriasis is a chronic condition caused by a process that accelerates the production of skin cells. It cannot be cured, but with the right treatment, the symptoms of psoriasis can be effectively managed. If you are looking for the best treatment for psoriasis, you can count on the team at Goodman Dermatology.

How Much Does Psoriasis Treatment Cost?

The cost of psoriasis treatment will vary depending on the techniques used, and may be covered by some health insurance providers. At Goodman Dermatology, we understand that each patient is entirely unique. With different skin types, cosmetic features and treatment needs, each patient deserves a personalized treatment that is designed with them in mind. For these reasons, we are not able to provide an exact cost for treatment until we have the opportunity to assess your treatment goals and develop a personalized treatment plan.

During your consultation, we will discuss your needs and treatment goals in order to determine this treatment plan and inform you of your psoriasis cost. To make our treatments more affordable for our patients, we are proud to offer financing options through CareCredit®.

How is Psoriasis Treated?

There are a number of treatment methods used to address psoriasis and its symptoms. Goodman Dermatology specializes in many of these treatments. So, if you are looking for a psoriasis natural treatment, or the best treatment for scalp psoriasis, for example, we can help you find the perfect solution.

We may recommend a psoriasis topical treatment, which involves a solution that is applied directly to the treated area. We may also recommend light therapy treatments, which are a natural solution that can target common problem areas like the face or scalp. With these techniques, we offer the following types of psoriasis treatment:

  • Scalp psoriasis treatment (and scalp psoriasis natural treatment)
  • Plaque psoriasis treatment
  • Guttate psoriasis treatment
  • Nail psoriasis treatment
  • Psoriasis on face treatment
  • Genital psoriasis treatment
  • Inverse psoriasis treatment

Are There Any Side Effects from Psoriasis Treatment?

The side effects from your psoriasis treatment will vary depending on the treatment method used. However, we strive to offer treatments that are gentle on the skin to minimize side effects as much as possible.

Is There Any Downtime Required After Psoriasis Treatment?

For most psoriasis treatments, there is no downtime or recovery period necessary. Some light therapy solutions may cause mild skin irritation, which will not directly require downtime, but may require you to alter some of your normal habits in the days following your appointment.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Psoriasis Treatment?

The results you achieve from psoriasis treatment will vary depending on the treatment method used. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment options to determine the treatment plan that will deliver the best results. At this time, we will let you know what kind of results you can expect. Since psoriasis cannot be cured, many patients find that they achieve the best results when combining regular psoriasis treatment with other at-home techniques for managing symptoms.
