Dermatology

 
Acne Scars Treatment
 
Acne Treatment
Acne is a skin condition which usually begins during the teenage years when the skin’s oil producing glands start to produce oily sebum. When the oil glands become blocked, this leads to the formation of comedones – blackheads and whiteheads. When bacteria infect these areas, the skin becomes red and inflamed, resulting in pimples. Sometimes, pus may develop within the pimple. In bad cases, large painful swellings called nodules and cysts may form, and may result in scarring after the condition has eventually settled. It is important to consult a dermatologist early as the appropriate medical treatment can improve your appearance and prevent development of scars.
 
Age Spots Removal
 
Dermatitis Treatment
Eczema, or dermatitis, refers to inflammation of the skin. It is one of the commonest causes of dry, sensitive skin. When this condition flares up, it can result in an intensely itchy, red inflamed rash. There are many types of eczema, and it can be present in all age groups. The commonest type of eczema is Atopic eczema. This occurs in people whose skin is hypersensitive to agents such as dust in the environment, certain foods etc. Discoid eczema presents with an itchy, scaly rash in round or coin-shaped patches usually on the arms and legs. Asteatotic eczema is an extreme dryness of the skin causing an itchy, scaly rash on the arms and legs that resembles “cracked tiles”. It affects elderly people. The mainstay of treatment for eczema is good skin care with regular application of moisturisers. When there is a flare-up of the rash, the dermatologist will prescribe steroid creams or ointments. These come in different strengths depending on the severity of the flare. Sometimes, eczema can get infected by bacteria, and in these cases, oral or topical antibiotics may be necessary.
 
Dermatologist Consultation
 
Keratosis Pilaris Treatment
Seborrheic keratoses are superficial skin growths commonly located on the face. They can also occur on the body and groin. They initially appear brown and slightly raised, but may enlarge and become darker and more numerous with age. This condition does not transform to skin cancer. However, removal of these growths is commonly performed by dermatologists for cosmetic reasons.
 
Milia Removal
 
Mole Assessment
Melanocytic naevi, more commonly known as moles, are benign (non-cancerous) skin growths caused by abnormal collection of pigment producing cells in the skin. Most moles are dark and pigmented but some moles may be lightly pigmented or may even be flesh coloured. Moles initially appear flat but may become raised and dome-shaped later in life. They generally do not require removal except for cosmetic reasons. Consult a dermatologist if your mole develops irregular borders, starts bleeding or suddenly increases in size as these may represent early cancerous changes.
 
Pigmentation Treatment
Pigmentary disorders are a group of conditions which affect the colour of the skin. Skin cells which produce pigment, or melanin, are called melanocytes. Increased activity or number of melanocytes results in darkening, or hyperpigmentation of the skin. Some common examples of disorders causing hyperpigmentation include freckles, solar lentigines, melasma and Hori’s naevus. Skin pigmentation disorders usually affect only a part of the skin. However, in certain conditions, they can involve the whole skin. As these disorders affect a person’s appearance, they frequently cause considerable distress and anxiety.
 
Psoriasis Treatment
Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease which is caused by inflammation. It appears as thick, silvery flakes or scales on pinkish red skin, usually on the elbows, knees, back or scalp. Psoriasis also involves the nails, causing small pits to form in the nail plates, nail discolouration, thickening of the nails or lifting of the nails from the nailbed. Some patients may also develop pain and swelling of the joints, known as psoriatic arthritis, and this may even lead to permanent joint damage. Psoriasis can occur at any age, but most commonly starts in the 20’s to 30’s, and also in the 50’s to 60’s. There are many forms of treatment for psoriasis, depending on the severity. This can include topical creams, ointments or scalp solutions. Occasionally in more severe forms, oral medications may be prescribed. Patients with psoriasis should be cared for by a dermatologist, as these medications may have serious side effects. It is important to note that psoriasis is not contagious or infectious, and although it is not curable, it can be controlled with appropriate management.
 
Rosacea Treatment
Rosacea is facial skin condition that presents as redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Over time, the redness tends to become more persistent, in association with skin swelling, visible tiny blood vessels and small bumps or pimples. Sometimes, the eyes are also affected and may be watery or bloodshot. In long standing and severe cases the nose may grow swollen and lumpy. Rosacea typically occurs after the age of 30. The exact cause is unknown but many factors may trigger flare-ups, including sunlight, alcoholic drinks, spicy foods, exercise, stress, anxiety and hot drinks such as coffee and tea.
 
Skin Cancer Screening
Skin cancer can be life threatening and the condition should not be taken lightly. As early detection is crucial, we advise regular mole and skin cancer screening to detect any potential risks. Our consultant dermatologist will take a complete history and perform a thorough mole screening, and discuss with you in depth on skin cancer surveillance. There are many types of skin tumours or skin growths. Some of them are harmless and need no treatment. These are called benign tumours. Some are cancerous and must be removed early. These are called malignant tumours. Any skin growth that is progressively enlarging or changing its appearance should be assessed and examined by a dermatologist. Early detection and treatment is crucial as skin cancers can spread to other parts of the body. As chronic sun exposure is an important risk factor for most skin cancers, it is also important to practice sun prevention such as using proper sun protection and avoiding long hours of sun exposure.
 
Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags are skin-coloured growths which commonly occur on the neck, underarms, groins and eyelids. Multiple skin tags may appear around the same area. They are harmless, and can easily be removed by the dermatologist using minor surgery.
 
Wart Removal
Warts are skin growths that grow on any part of the body, including the face, fingers and groin. They have a rough surface on which tiny, dark dots can often be seen. On pressure areas like the palms or the soles, they appear flat. Warts on the sole grow inward from the pressure of standing and walking and are often painful. Warts are caused by a virus, and are otherwise harmless. However, they are contagious, and may spread from one part of the body to another or to other people. As warts can be a nuisance, dermatologists offer treatments such as minor surgery, electrosurgery, laser, freezing with liquid nitrogen or using special chemicals to remove them.

Dermal Fillers
Facial fillers are substances which are injected into the skin to create a more youthful appearance. They act by filling in facial lines or depressions and thus result in a plumping up effect on the skin. Facial fillers are commonly used to: Fill in deep wrinkles, creases and sunken or hollowed cheeks Treat deep scars Create fuller and more shapely lips. Prior to injecting facial fillers, our consultant dermatologist will apply an anaesthetic cream to numb the area. The procedure may last from only a few minutes to up to an hour, depending on the number of injections and area of treatment. The effect can be seen almost immediately. Continued treatments may be needed to maintain the desired outcome.
 
Excessive Sweating Treatment
Excessive sweating is a common problem and can be a source of embarrassment. Sometimes simple measures such as prescription strength antiperspirants can be helpful. For excessive sweating of the hands and feet, iontophoresis can be helpful. This involves soaking the hands in a liquid through which a very gentle electric current is passed. During the treatment, the gentle electric current gives a very slight tingling sensation but is not uncomfortable. For persistent hyperhidrosis, certain injections can be very effective. The usual site of treatment is under the arms, where small evenly spaced injections are placed just under the surface of the skin. The benefit of excessive sweating treatment lasts between six and nine months and can then be repeated if wished

Medical Aesthetics Specialist Consultation
 
Mole Removal
There are various methods used to remove moles. Our consultant dermatologist will perform a full history and examination before advising on the need for mole removal and the most appropriate method for it. Larger or more protruding moles may require surgical excision. Laser removal may be performed for smaller and flatter moles. If our dermatologist feels that there is a risk that a mole may be turning cancerous, an excision biopsy will be performed.

Tattoo Removal
Tattoo removal can be accomplished using the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser. A series of treatments is always necessary. The number of treatment with the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser will vary depending on the lesion, size, location, colour and age of the patient and age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos respond more quickly than professional tattoos, although both can be improved with laser tattoo removal. Amateur tattoos may clear after 2 or 3 treatments, but professional tattoos may take 6-10 or more treatments to improve or clear. Laser tattoo removal is usually performed in intervals spaced at least 4-6 weeks apart. Immediately following treatment, the laser treated skin will look white. This is soon replaced by redness, then a scab. It is important to keep the treated area moist and protected from the sun as it heals.
 
Treatment for Wrinkles
Wrinkle treatment injections are commonly used for: Eliminating frown lines and forehead wrinkles Eliminating wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), mouth or nose Creating a more contoured jawline Lifting the brow line Wrinkle treatment injections may also be used to treat excessive sweating of the palms and armpits by acting directly on the overactive sweat glands. This procedure is quick and relatively painless. You will be able to start seeing results within 3 to 5 days, although the full effect is only achieved after about 1 week. The effect of wrinkle treatment injections may wear off after 4 to 6 months. Thus, continued treatments are usually required to maintain the desired outcome.

Hair Loss Treatment

 
Bald Spot Removal
 
Hair Loss Specialist Consultation
At any time, it may be normal for a person to shed as many as 50 hairs a day. Hair loss becomes abnormal when more than 100 hairs are lost a day. There are many different kinds of hair loss which include: Androgenetic Alopecia, Alopecia Areata, Telogen Effluvium, Traction Alopecia.
 
Treatment for Male Pattern Baldness
Androgenetic alopecia is also known as male pattern hair loss or male pattern baldness. This is the commonest cause of hair loss in both men and women. It is caused by a combination of 3 factors – advancing age, genetics and the male hormones. It can occur as early as after 20 years, but usually affects women later in life than men.

Beauty Salon Treatments

 
Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment
 
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing involves the use of a carbon dioxide laser to gently exfoliate your skin layer by layer. When the outermost layer of the skin is removed, the deeper layer of skin is exposed, leading to collagen stimulation and production. As a result, a new layer of skin is formed, leading to a brighter and more youthful appearance. Indications for laser skin resurfacing include treatment of sun-damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles on the face as well as scars due to acne, trauma, chicken pox or previous surgery.

Chemical Peel
Chemical peels involve the application of chemical agents such as glycolic acid (AHA) or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to gently remove the outer layer of the skin. This results in regeneration of a new skin layer, revealing skin which looks smoother, lighter and more glowing. Chemical peels are commonly used to: Treat facial wrinkles and fine lines Improve the appearance of acne skin and blemishes Reduce superficial acne scars Even out skin tone Lighten skin pigmentation Our consultant dermatologist will assess your skin type and decide on the type and strength of chemical peel to use. Each procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes to an hour. Post-procedure, there may be some redness and mild flaking of the skin, which should subsequently resolve. Superficial peels may yield almost immediate results while the effects from deeper peels may take up to a week to be seen. For optimal results, continued treatments may be needed at regular intervals.

Nail Treatments

 
Toenail Fungus Treatment
Nail infections may be caused by bacteria, fungi, yeast or virus. The commonest nail infection is fungal nail infection. Fungal nail infection can affect the finger and toe nails. The nail plate may become brittle, thickened or completely destroyed. The dermatologist will prescribe an antifungal lotion or oral antifungal tablets to treat this condition. Inflammation and infection of the nail fold is called paronychia. Damage to the nail fold occurs when there is injury such as habitual nail biting or constant wet work (such as in people whose hands are constantly exposed to water e.g. cooks, domestic helpers). Subsequent infection by bacteria or fungus causes painful swelling of the nail fold. If the infection has been there for a long time, the nail plate becomes deformed. Treatment of paronychia includes draining pus in the infected nail fold and oral antibiotics. Wearing impervious gloves during wet work helps to prevent paronychia. Another common nail infection is periungual viral warts. This condition is caused by viral wart infection of the nail fold and nail bed. It best treated with laser surgery by a dermatologist.

Waxing and Hair Removal

 
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal involves the use of special lasers to remove excessive or unwanted hair from all parts of the body, including the face, limbs, underarms, bikini line and back. Unlike temporary methods of hair removal such as shaving and waxing, laser hair removal not only gets rid of the hair shafts, it also causes destruction of the hair follicles and its roots. It is important for our consultant dermatologist to assess your skin type before deciding on the appropriate laser to use, in order to achieve the best results and avoid unwanted side effects. This is because different skin types respond differently to different lasers. On average, 5 to 8 treatments may be needed to achieve significant hair reduction. The number of treatments depends on hair thickness, the area treated and the hair’s growth cycle. The effects usually last for up to 2 years. However, subsequent hair growth will be much finer in texture and lighter in colour.
