Toronto Dermatology Centre is one of the premiere places in Canada to manage psoriasis. Toronto Dermatology Centre launched the Toronto Psoriasis Centre because we see so many patients with psoriasis and have become a centre of excellence for psoriasis.
Toronto Psoriasis Centre has outstanding dermatologists that can offer both a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis of your skin, and also discuss all the treatment options including: natural & alternative treatments, moisturizer selection, prescription creams and pills, OHIP-covered phototherapy, and the new and powerful biologic agents.
Psoriasis affects 2-3% of people in North America, and about 25% of patients with psoriasis will develop psoriatic arthritis. Psoriasis is a persistent skin disorder characterized by red, thickened areas with silvery scales, most often on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back.
Some cases of psoriasis are so mild that people don't know they have it. Severe psoriasis may cover large areas of the body. Psoriasis is not contagious and cannot be passed from one person to another, but other family members may be affected (hereditary).
