Psoriasis Treatment Options
Psoriasis is one of the most common skin rashes treated in Baylor Dermatology. We know that psoriasis can affect our patient's quality of life. In order to best treat our patients we offer a large range of therapeutic options to fit nearly every need:
PUVA (Psoralen + UVA)
A powerful treatment that combines Ultraviolet A Light with a medication that makes the skin more UV sensitive. Treatments are quick and the effect can be long-lasting.
The latest Ultraviolet Light therapy. Effectiveness is similar to PUVA for most patients, but without the need for medication or other PUVA side effects.
Biologic Agents (Etanercept, Infliximab, Adalimumab, Ustekinumab)
Several new medications have been recently developed and offer new approaches for psoriasis. Dr. Ted Rosen and Dr. Sylvia Hsu are experienced in the use of these medications and have lectured other dermatologists on their use.
