There is a spectrum of skin problems which may begin with a simple rash or skin growth or bump. However, common skin conditions may also manifest in different ways. Sometimes, they may mimic other conditions or follow a chronic, recalcitrant and debilitating course.
In these instances, our dermatologists will have to employ different modalities or combine treatment options to achieve the best result for the patient. Our clinic has a wide range of therapeutic options to manage these difficult conditions. These include phototherapy, or light therapy, which utilizes specific ultraviolet wavelengths that act on targeted cells within the skin to ease the inflammation and reduce itch.
Biologic treatment may also be employed, a form of targeted therapy that acts on specific pathways in the skin. These are novel and powerful options which are at the forefront of medical advances, that can be used to treat refractory or severe skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis or chronic urticaria.
