What is Psoriasis?
We see many patients here at our Sarasota psoriasis treatment clinic. Psoriasis is one of the most common autoimmune skin conditions, affecting around 7.4 million Americans each year. Psoriasis often presents around the scalp, neck, hands, feet, and face, sometimes around the mouth or nails. Skin may look red, scaly, or thick, especially in patches where the growth of the skin is accelerated. There is a great deal of variation in the severity and presentation of psoriasis, and it’s often classified into five categories. Here at Suncoast Skin Solutions, we offer a wide range of psoriasis treatments for our Sarasota patients, helping them live full lives despite this severe condition.
How Much Do Treatments for Psoriasis Cost?
The cost for your psoriasis treatment at our Sarasota dermatology clinic will be unique to you, and will depend on things like the type of treatment chosen, the length of treatment, health insurance coverage, and other factors. Only a trained dermatology professional can recommend the right course of treatment for you, and we are happy to give you a more accurate cost estimate.

What Causes Psoriasis?
Psoriasis involves the parts of the body responsible for creating new skin cells. These areas become overstimulated, meaning they create too many skin cells, which end up accumulating on the skin surface and cause irritation. Here at Suncoast Skin Solution, we’ve found there are two main causes of psoriasis—autoimmunity and genetics. In our Sarasota psoriasis treatment clinic, we tell patients that, while there is no conventionally-accepted cure for this condition, there are ways to prevent or reduce the severity of flare-ups. Some common causes of flares include infections, stress, alcohol consumption, certain medications, and injuries to the skin.
