Psoriasis has always been a frustrating and uncomfortable skin condition, but here at the office of Dr. Ghatan, our Bensonhurst psoriasis doctor goal is not only to offer treatment, but to find the most advanced, effective, quick, and safe ways to address this skin condition. And with laser treatment for psoriasis, we’ve met that goal.

Until this state-of-the-art laser treatment was developed, the most common way to deal with psoriasis was with topical creams and gels or oral steroids. And those are still useful for some cases. As impressive as the results are, not everyone is a good candidate for it, so it’s good to know that you’re not left without options. However, in many situations where you have mild to moderate psoriasis, it will be the best choice. Our Bensonhurst psoriasis doctor also can use laser treatment for hard-to-treat areas, which include knees, elbows, and the scalp. Laser is also an ideal form of treatment when you have psoriasis that has not been sufficiently or effectively treated with other methods. It requires no daily maintenance, and in approximately eight sessions with our Bensonhurst psoriasis doctor, you can be completely free of lesions. The process itself is painless. It consists of using a handpiece against the affected skin with the laser beam achieving a precise focus that only hits the lesions, and not the surrounding skin. As a result, you can rest assured that your skin will not be unnecessarily put at risk for premature aging, as can happen when healthy areas of the skin are exposed to ultraviolet light. Furthermore, you won’t have to be concerned with easy bruising, stretch marks, or thinning of skin as can happen with other types of treatments.

There are many reasons to feel positive and confident about laser treatments. Schedule an appointment to come in and have your skin evaluated by our Bensonhurst psoriasis doctor.

Midwood Brooklyn Dermatologist

Medical Dermatology Midwood

Psoriasis and eczema are skin conditions that can be both annoying and cosmetically displeasing. Our Midwood Brooklyn dermatologist offers advanced treatments for both that are safe, painless, and highly effective.

Psoriasis is a skin problem in which your skin cells multiply much faster than they should. This overproduction of skin cells leads to raised, red areas that are covered with white scales. It typically is found on the elbows, knees, and even the scalp, but can also occur on your palms, the soles of your feet, and your torso. Psoriasis often causes itchiness and can be painful. Cracking and bleeding skin is also not uncommon. Fortunately, our Midwood Brooklyn dermatologist can treat your psoriasis with laser therapy, specifically the EX-308 excimer laser, representing the state of the art. This method has advantages over the more traditional treatments such as topical creams and gels. This is because it does not require daily maintenance. Many patients report months of relief from their psoriasis and its symptoms after having approximately 8 laser sessions. Each session only takes a few minutes, so you won’t need to be inconvenienced or expend a great deal of your valuable time. Perhaps the biggest advantage of EX-308 excimer laser treatment is that it tends to avoid the side effects that are associated with treatments such as steroids and oral medication.

Eczema is also called atopic dermatitis. It causes irritation or inflammation on your skin. It may be linked to other conditions such as asthma and hay fever. Usually seen on the arms, elbows, creases of the eyelids, and behind the knees, it can appear on any part of your skin. The most common symptom is itchiness as well as thickened skin that can have cracks and a scaly appearance or small, raised bumps that can leak fluid and form a crust if scratched. Our Midwood Brooklyn dermatologist can offer treatments to address eczema. Among these are corticosteroid based creams and ointments, and antibiotics if there is an infection present. Other ways to address eczema are antihistamines, sometimes helpful in providing itch relief, and immunomodulators that can help prevent your immune system from causing eczema flare ups. In more severe cases, it may be helpful to take corticosteroids orally or by injection.
