Autoimmune diseases can result in the body attacking itself. Instead of fighting to protect the body from illness or disease, autoantigens begin destroying tissue. There are many autoimmune diseases that impact the skin, causing lesions, blisters, rashes and other skin damage. Dr. Morgan Rabach at LM Medical NYC is a board certified dermatologist and renowned skin expert who offers autoimmune disease treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.

Autoimmune diseases can be caused by a variety of factors. Genetics play a role in whether or not a person is more susceptible to obtaining an autoimmune disease. Women are at higher risk than men, and infections and certain medications can put individuals at higher risk as well. While not all autoimmune diseases have symptoms that impact the skin, many may cause skin, mucus membrane and visible tissue damage. Blistering skin disease is common with autoimmune diseases, coming in a variety of types and forms.

Types of Autoimmune Skin Diseases

Some autoimmune diseases can result in medical skin conditions or symptoms. Most result in blistering or rashes that can attack the skin or mucus membranes. Types of autoimmune skin diseases include:

  • Varieties of pemphigus diseases
  • Varieties of pemphigoid diseases
  • Dermatitis herpetiformis
  • Bullous systemic lupus erythematosus

Treatment of autoimmune skin diseases depends on the types and the causes of the disease. Some common treatments include corticosteroids and autoimmune suppressants. In some cases, cosmetic dermatology treatments may be requested in addition to medical treatments. World-renowned dermatologist Dr. Morgan will recommend a complete, personalized treatment plan to give you relief and protect the health of your skin and overall wellness.

If you suffer from an autoimmune disease that affects your skin, contact our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule a medical dermatology appointment with expert dermatologist Dr. Morgan at our clinic in Greenwich Village to discuss the best treatment option to improve your skin condition.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
