Residents in the Naperville and Barrington area who suffer from moderate to severe psoriasis can have their condition treated at Schaumburg Dermatology. Dr. Singri spent much of his time at Northwestern during his two-year research fellowship studying and researching skin conditions such as psoriasis, and has come up with his own treatment methods. Psoriasis can make many people self-conscious, but the condition can be treated and contained with our customized therapies and regimens.
Normally, skin cells flake off entirely about every 4 weeks or so, and in the wake of those skin cells, new skin cells grow to replace them. However, psoriasis causes new skin cells to move to the surface of the skin in a matter of days rather than weeks. This results in patches of thick white or red skin known as plaques.
Psoriasis Treatment Methods
To begin treatment, we offer a thorough consultation to address the entire body, rather than just the psoriasis, in order to provide the best possible treatment or combination of treatments for you.
After your consultation, we will generate a treatment regimen for your psoriasis that may include topical methods, an excimer laser for immediate removal, or a combination of systemic medications. We also perform clinical trials, so if past treatments have not been effective, undergoing these trials might be beneficial for you.
