Las Vegas dermatologist, Dr. Candace Spann, treats psoriasis and other skin related conditions that can impact the daily life of her patients. Psoriasis is an inherited condition in which new skin cells develop at an abnormally high rate, resulting in thickened areas of skin that appear blistered, reddened, or scaly. Outbreaks of psoriasis typically appear after illness, exposure to dry or cold weather, or stressful events. There are five different classifications of psoriasis, each presenting somewhat differently. The most common type by far is plaque psoriasis, which forms raised, reddish patches of skin that are covered in a silver or whitish coating called scale. Other less prevalent types of psoriasis result in pustules, reddish bumps, or severe rashes accompanied by fever.
"What a great staff! Beautiful office. I have seen both Dr. Marvin and Candace Spann for cosmetic procedures and laser treatments. The Dr.s were both very attentive and made me feel comfortable in my procedures."- N.S. / Yelp / Nov 22, 2016
"I have gone to Couture Medical once a month for almost a year. I have never EVER waited for more than ten minutes to be called back. The waiting room is never packed or busy. The office staff is second to none. They are always friendly, fast, and personable. If I ever call with an issue or question, they handle it quickly and actually answer the phone when you call. I see Dr. Kim and she is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She listens, is extremely intelligent, and actually cares about your results. I absolutely love this place and am so glad I found it."- C.R. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2017
"If I could give Couture Medical 10 stars I would!! I've been a patient of Dr. Candace Spann for over 2 years. I decided to see a dermatologist for my hair loss. I was very apprehensive as I was new to the area. From the moment I stepped into the office I felt very comfortable. The office is very chic and clean. The front office staff was very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Candace Spann was the same. She listened and never made me feel uncomfortable about my hair loss. She shared her own personal experience and offered solutions. She never fed me dreams simply to get money. She was very honest about everything from day one. I am currently receiving Platelet Rich Plasma injections to help stimulate hair growth. I am experiencing great success with the treatments. I am truly grateful for Dr. Candace and Couture Medical. I highly recommend making an appointment."- M.F. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2017

Dr. Candace Spann offers numerous treatment options to manage and treat psoriasis so that the frequency and severity of symptoms are reduced. Some treatments may include a combination of creams, ointments, medications and anti-inflammatory corticosteroids. Because each individual’s skin is unique, treatment will vary depending on the particular needs of each patient. Treatments for psoriasis may include topical ointments, injections, or phototherapy. Because psoriasis symptoms often worsen during periods of stress, Dr. Spann may recommend stress management as part of the treatment program.
Phototherapy, also known as “light” therapy, involves the use of a narrow, high-energy ultraviolet light to target plaques of psoriasis. Dr. Spann offers effective laser treatments for the symptoms associated with psoriasis. This therapy usually takes place over the course of numerous sessions (as needed) with a goal to reduce redness, inflammation and scaling, and to create a softer effect on the skin. Laser therapy also slows down skin cell turnover. Many of Dr. Spann’s patients have seen great success with laser treatment and in many cases the psoriasis has been seen to go into remission. These treatments are performed in-office in a safe, quick and effective manner. Patients can return to their normal activities after each treatment session.
