Hair Transplant Psoriasis

How is psoriasis treated?

The goal of treatment is to control the inflammation and shedding of the skin. After your dermatologist at SkinCentral has made a diagnosis, a treatment regimen will be determined based on your general health, age, lifestyle and the severity of the psoriasis. Types of treatment may include a combination of the following:

  • Topical Treatments
    • Corticosteroid creams, ointments and lotions
    • Vitamin D creams and ointments (Daivonex, Silkis)
    • Tar based treatments
  • Systemic Treatments
    • Oral retinoids (e.g. Acitretin)
    • Oral methotrexate
    • Biologic agents (e.g. Etanercept)
