What Is a Dermatologist?

Our specialists provide tailored care, ensuring you receive the most effective treatment for your specific condition.

Medical Dermatology

Management of medical conditions that cause skin rashes or inflammation. The dermatologist will assess your skin, arrange appropriate tests, discuss diagnosis and management options and then develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin needs.

Surgical Dermatology

For skin lesions, benign or cancerous, our skilled dermatologists will advise on the appropriate procedure. This may involve removal by cryotherapy (freezing), curette (scraping off) or excision (cutting out).

Paediatric Dermatology

Specialised care for the youngest patients, addressing common childhood skin conditions in a comforting and understanding environment.

How Are Dermatological Conditions Diagnosed?

Dermatological conditions are usually diagnosed through detailed history taking and clinical skin examination. A hand-held dermatoscope allows more detailed examination of skin lesions.

Other diagnostic tests are occasionally required to aid diagnosis. These include

  • Blood tests
  • Skin biopsy
  • Skin scrapings / swabs
  • X-ray or ultrasound scan
