Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder characterized by raised lesions with silvery scale that most often occur on the scalp, elbows, knees and lower back. It can range from a very mild, hardly noticeable rash to a severe eruption that covers large areas of the body. In some patients, psoriasis causes nail changes and joint pain (psoriatic arthritis).
Light Therapy/Phototherapy: Affiliated Dermatology is the first dermatologist in Arizona to provide the best-in-class excimer lamp, Exci308®, as a treatment option for psoriasis. Exci308® differs from other devices in several ways, including price, size, and speed of treatment, and addresses autoimmune skin conditions for patients of all ages and skin types.
