If you have already been diagnosed with psoriasis, then you know how heartbreaking it can be. Red scaly patches with silvery white scales can affect you anywhere from your head to your toes. Often appearing symmetrically on your body, these patches affect the elbows, knees, groin, scalp and even the nails, and in the worst of cases can involve every square inch of your skin. Complicating the skin rashes, you might even develop a form of arthritis called psoriatic arthritis that without proper treatment can become progressively worse over time and lead to significant pain, swelling, disfigurement and permanent joint deformities.
That said, psoriasis does not have to be so heartbreaking and doesn’t have to lower your self-esteem.
Dr. Snyder’s Approach
Dr. Snyder has extensive training and experience in expertly treating and managing the mildest to the most severe psoriasis cases. For over 25 years, Dr. Snyder established and continues to operate one of the few ultraviolet light treatment centers in Maryland specifically for treating psoriasis. Dr. Snyder, in fact, was the first physician in Maryland using the XTRAC ULTRA Excimer Laser treatment to treat and clear psoriasis and help put the condition into remission.
Dr. Snyder’s Treatment
Ongoing research and recent advances in obtaining a better understanding of the factors causing and triggering psoriasis have led Dr. Snyder to offer treatments such as Humira, Enbrel and Stelera to not only control psoriasis, but in many cases completely clear the skin lesions and halt the devastating progression of psoriatic arthritis, thereby preventing new joint destruction.
Depending on the location, extent and severity of your psoriasis, Dr. Snyder will customize a treatment regimen that may include prescription topical and/or oral prescription medications, in-office cosmeceuticals, ultraviolet light (UVB and/or PUVA), biologics such as Humira, Enbrel and Stelera, and the XTRAC ULTRA Excimer Laser.
