Biologics and Topicals

Biologics are highly-targeted medicines that contain molecules from living organisms. Topicals include creams, ointments or gels applied to the skin.

What is it?

Many of us readily recognize the use of topical medications. These treatments are applied directly to the skin where the symptoms present themselves, and they often serve as our primary defense against various skin issues such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis and eczema. Some recent developments in topical medication, like JAK inhibitors, have shown quick and practical improvements in conditions like alopecia, vitiligo and eczema.


Biologics are leading the way in treating diseases that cause the immune system to mistakenly attack parts of the body. These include molecules from living organisms and can help alleviate or even eradicate symptoms of psoriasis and eczema. Unlike synthetic drugs that may influence your entire immune system, biologics specifically target the part of your immune system responsible for causing symptoms. Biologics can result in transformative outcomes for some patients in our medical practice.


What to expect

Biologics operate systemically and are typically administered via injection or infusion to tackle more severe cases of chronic diseases. Be sure to give us a call and schedule a consultation appointment with one of our board-certified dermatologists in Adrian, Battle Creek, Dowagiac, Hillsdale, Jackson, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph and Sturgis, Michigan, or Angola, Elkhart, Goshen and Plymouth, Indiana, to determine if biologics or topical treatments are the right approach for you.
