Conditions & Treatments

Acne

Acne is the skin condition most people are familiar with. It afflicts most people to a varying degree, especially during their teen years. However, the disease is by no means restricted to teenagers; adults well into their twenties or thirties may suffer from acne.

Rosacea

Rosacea, or acne rosacea, is a common skin disorder leading to redness and pimples on the nose, forehead, cheekbones, and chin. The inflamed pimples and redness of rosacea can look a great deal like acne, but blackheads are almost never present.

Eczema

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin that causes areas of red, itchy skin. This condition usually starts in early childhood, especially when there is a family history of atopy (asthma, hay fever, conjunctivitis, or food allergies).

Skin Allergy (patch test)

Skin allergy or allergic contact dermatitis is a body's response to a certain substance, usually resulting in a rash, anywhere from an hour to a week after exposure. What defines the allergy is that it usually happens with a substance not usually associated with a harsh compound.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a common skin condition affecting up to 1/50 people, and it affects men and women equally. It expresses variably among patients, but the most common type, plaque psoriasis, consists of raised lesions covered with a variable amount of silvery scales most commonly seen on the elbows, knees, scalp, and trunk.

Botox & Wrinkle Cosmetic Treatment

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, and gradually form around where the skin bunches up when we smile, frown, and laugh. Lifestyle factors can also contribute, for example whether you smoke, your level of sun exposure, and your sleeping position.

Male Genital Dermatoses

Because of the variety of skin tissue types, a moist warm environment and a higher risk of infections associated with the urinary tract, the genital area tends to attract more than its fair share of dermatological problems.

Sun (UV) Damage

While most people enjoy time in the sun, and exposure is vital to the creation of vitamin D, sunlight also contains harmful UV rays. Over time, the skin undergoes "photo-aging", the accumulation of minor damage to the skin due to these rays.

Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), or skin cancer, is one of the most common kinds of cancer. It is most often found on the face, neck, hands, or other parts of the body that receive the most exposure to the sun.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma

There are two main categories of skin cancer: melanomas and non-melanoma skin cancers. Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the non-melanoma skin cancers.

Melanoma

Cutaneous malignant melanoma is a cancer of the pigment cells of the skin. If it is treated early, the outlook is usually good. It is not contagious.

Mole Mapping

Most moles are benign and remain so, but it is important to keep an eye on your moles so that you notice any changes that may indicate the first signs of skin cancer.

Mole Removal & Analysis

Moles, medically known as 'nevi', are made up of a particular type of cell, and the name is used to distinguish them from other, similar appearing fleshy growths. Everybody develops moles during their lives, although in varying amounts — most people have at least 10, and some people have 40 or more.

Cyst Removal

Cysts are fluid-filled sacs found within the body which can be visible when they form near the surface of the skin. Location and the composition of the membrane lining differentiates one type of cyst from another.
