Dermatology Services

Yale New Haven Hospital offers a variety of advanced treatments to prevent, diagnose and treat disorders and diseases of the skin. Dermatologists are available to perform regular skin checks, take biopsies, and treat acne, hair loss, lesions and rashes associated with medication.

Our board-certified dermatologists play an important role in your overall health and wellness. They are skilled in performing various in-office medical and cosmetic procedures, and collaborate with other specialists to address more complex dermatology problems, such as certain surgical procedures or cancers. Our dermatologists often recommend regular preventive care check-ups, especially if you have a personal history of skin cancer, a family history of melanoma or a large number of moles on your body.

Patients with chronic dermatologic conditions including psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) may be prescribed infusions that are administered either at home or our infusion center. These are administered through intravenous or subcutaneous infusions. Some of these conditions include:

Psoriasis

Infusion therapy for psoriasis works by blocking T-cells and other proteins in the immune system that cause psoriasis to develop. Traditional medications affect the entire immune system, whereas infusion therapies better target the compromised part of the immune system.

Hidradenitis suppurativa

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a skin condition causing small lumps to form under the skin. Infusion therapy can help to improve the symptoms of hidradenitis suppurativa, in many cases helping to improve the appearance of skin lesions.

Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE)

Discoid lupus erythematosus is a skin condition causing sores with inflammation and sometimes scarring on the face, ears, scalp and other parts of the body. Infusion therapy can help to relive some symptoms of DLE for patients who may not respond well to medications.
