There are many different skin conditions out there. Some are unnoticeable, some are obvious. Our Dermatologist in Southampton & Portsmouth will be able to help diagnose and treat almost any skin problem you may have. Whether it’s Acne, Psoriasis, or any other skin condition, Beau Visage will be able to help.
Acne is a very common skin condition, especially in teenagers. It normally clears up by the age of 25, but sometimes, in severe cases, it won’t fade as quickly. Acne can normally be treated by frequently washing the affected areas. For more severe cases our Southampton Dermatologist will recommend antibiotics, as these will help
Psoriasis treatments are determined by the type and severity of the skin condition, and the area affected. A dermatologist would probably start with a mild treatment, such as “topical” creams, which are applied to the skin, and then move onto a stronger treatment should it be necessary.
A wide range of treatments are available for psoriasis, but identifying which treatment is most effective can be difficult. Talk to your doctor if you feel a treatment is not working or you have uncomfortable side effects.
The treatments for psoriasis fall into one of three categories:
- topical – creams and ointments that are applied to your skin
- phototherapy – your skin is exposed to certain types of ultraviolet light
- systemic – oral and injected medications that work throughout the entire body
Often, different types of treatment are used in combination.
