Acne

Dermatologists use a procedure called acne extraction to remove whiteheads and blackheads that fail to clear with acne treatment.

Eczema

Eczema and dermatitis mean the same thing; inflammation of the skin characterised by redness, swelling, itching and excoriation (scratch marks) in the acute form

Our consultant dermatologists can offer you expert treatment with a very good chance of dramatically improving your eczema.

Undiagnosed skin rashes

Skin conditions are often linked to irritation, clogged pores or inflammation caused by an infection or immune disorder. Symptoms include rashes, redness, itchiness and skin growths.

Skin infections such as fungus or viral warts

Using a combination of in-office treatments and medicines applied at home, skin infections can be treated successfully.

Nail disorders

Our dermatologists are often able to diagnose the infection by colour and form, although a full range of laboratory tests  are available in house.

Hair disorders

Our expert Dermatologists are able to diagnose and treat hair loss. They can tell you whether it’s FPHR or something else that is causing your hair loss.

Abnormal pigmentation

Some of the most common pigmented issues are birthmarks, macular stains, hemangiomas, port wine stains, while disorders include albinism, melasma, vitiligo and pigmentation loss due to skin damage.

Patients with suspected allergy (including those requiring patch tests)

A skin test is the most common kind of allergy test. Your skin is pricked with a needle that has a tiny amount of something you might be allergic to. If you have a rash or take a medicine that could affect the results of a skin test, you may need a blood test

Facial Cancers

If skin cancer is found early, it can usually be treated with topical medications, procedures done in the office by a dermatologist, or an outpatient surgery.
