At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Centreville area with their skin care concerns. Patients focused on their overall health and wellness who have dermatology concerns such as psoriasis often want to speak to a team in the Manassas, VA area to discuss care and treatment for their skin. Psoriasis is a condition that affects thousands of Americans and can be extremely troublesome for men and women.
What is psoriasis?
Drs. Neeraja Mattay and Nickolai Talanin define psoriasis as a skin condition that occurs due to overactive skin cell reproduction. Psoriasis involves areas of plaque that often develop on the elbows and knees, though can be seen anywhere on the body. The condition causes white plaque-like build-up to appear on the skin, which may be troublesome for individuals.
What treatment options are available?
Psoriasis responds differently to treatment options for some patients. It may necessary for doctors and patients to go through a period of trial and error to see which treatment works best for their specific needs. Drs. Neeraja Mattay and Nickolai Talanin of Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia may suggest one or several of the treatments below to see how well the skin responds:
- Oral medication
- Topical medication
- Ultraviolet light treatments
Then, they will develop skin care regimens for patients to closely follow to improve the skin’s texture and tone.
