Your skin tells your story. It is the first thing people are greeted with when they meet you. Your skin is a mirror for your internal health, the armor for what you carry within, and the exterior shell of the most important thing you’ve got: yourself.
So what happens when you become one of the many Americans living with a skin disorder?
Skin disorders come in all forms, and affect people of all ages. Skin disorders do not discriminate, and cause even the happiest of people to feel down and discouraged about their appearance.
According to a Fox News report, acne, eczema, and psoriasis are three of the five most common skin disorders – and are skin disorders that Precision Skin Institute are able to treat! Treatment for skin disorders, a request we are faced with quite often, is something we pride ourselves on being able to assist patients with. Because of this, the patients of our Davie dermatology center are able to live better, more comfortable lives in the skin that they’re in!
At Precision Skin Institute, a leading south Florida cosmetic, medical and surgical dermatology center, we have the ability to not only test and assess your skin for any skin disorders, we can treat them as well.
So, what is there to know about these three skin disorders?
Acne is one of the more common forms of skin disorders, which 80% of Americans will face at some point in their lives. Most popular in the teenage years due to a surge in hormones, acne is a skin disorder with treatment options.
At Precision Skin Institute, we offer a variety of options for acne treatment such as prescription topical and oral medications, chemical peels, facials, cortisone injections, laser therapies and home skincare regimens.
Eczema causes unsightly red patches of dry, flaky skin. Ten to twenty percent of children are born with the long-term genetic skin disease, atopic dermatitis, a common form of eczema treated at Precision Skin Institute, which can last well into adulthood. Allergic contact dermatitis, begins to manifest in adulthood.
Available treatment methods for eczema at Precision Skin Institute include topical prescription creams, laser therapy, light therapy, oral medications, and injectable biological treatments.
Psoriasis is a chronic and disfiguring genetic disease. It is a buildup of excess skin tissue that looks red and thick and is covered with silvery scales. It first appears on the elbows and knees, but can spread to other parts of the limbs and even the trunk. Certain forms affect particular areas like the hands, scalp or the joints.
Treatment options for psoriasis available at Precision Skin Institute are very similar to the treatment options for eczema. This includes topical prescription creams, oral medications, laser therapy, light therapy, and injectable biologic treatments.
