Prevention Care

Your Health is our Top Priority


Acne is a common skin condition characterized by pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. It can be treated with over-the-counter topical creams and gels containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. It is important to maintain a gentle skin care routine and avoid picking at the skin. When required for severe cases, SilvaCare can help patients with prescription-strength topical creams, antibiotics, and isotretinoin. 


Eczema is a chronic skin condition characterized generally by itchy red, inflamed skin. Treatment can be a combination of moisturizing creams, topical corticosteroids, antihistamines, and light therapy. Keeping the skin hydrated and avoiding triggers such as harsh soaps and clothing made of synthetic fibers can also help manage symptoms.


Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition characterized by silvery scales or red and dry patches of skin, commonly found at the scalp, knees, elbows, face, palms and soles of the feet. SilvaCare can help you treat psoriasis with topical creams, topical steroids, phototherapy, and oral meds like methotrexate or biologic drugs. We can also help you manage symptoms with maintaining a healthy diet, and avoiding triggers such as stress and alcohol.


This is a skin condition characterized by redness and bumps on the face. We can help you treat it with topical creams, antibiotics, and even specialized laser and light therapies. 

Avoiding triggers such as alcohol, spicy foods, and sun and wind  exposure can prevent flare-ups. 


Vitiligo is a skin condition characterized by patches of skin losing pigmentation. It can be treated with topical corticosteroids, phototherapy, and skin camouflage. In some cases, surgical procedures such as skin grafts or micropigmentation may be recommended. It is also important to protect affected skin from sun exposure with clothing and sunscreen.
