Overview

Dr Stephanie Ho is a British trained Consultant Dermatologist who is registered as a skin specialist both in Singapore and the United Kingdom. She has over 18 years of medical experience, and has practised in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and Singapore.

She graduated with a medical degree from the University of Edinburgh and attained her postgraduate degree in internal medicine in the United Kingdom. She completed her specialist dermatology training in London, having trained at various hospitals including the prestigious St John's Institute of Dermatology, Chelsea and Westminster, and Barts and The London NHS Trusts. She went on to practise dermatology as well as undertake extensive research at The University of Hong Kong in the use of lasers and lights, publishing numerous articles in international peer reviewed journals as well as contributing to dermatological book chapters. She then moved back to Singapore and was a Consultant Dermatological Surgeon at the National Skin Centre in Singapore with an interest in surgery and lasers before setting up her own private practice - Stephanie Ho Dermatology.

Active in research and education, Dr Ho has published over 20 publications in journals and book chapters, and is an invited reviewer for several international dermatology journals. In addition, she presents regularly at local, regional and international conferences as well as public forums. She has also been actively involved in the teaching of medical students and other fellow doctors throughout her career.

Her international experience has provided exposure to a great diversity of people and skin conditions, and she is equally comfortable treating adults and children of all skin types. She is warm, engaging, and passionate about making a dermatologist's advice more accessible to everyone. A visit to her office can be for any skin condition, medical or cosmetic, serious or benign. Not only does she strive to guide her patients in the management of frustrating skin conditions with scientifically based advice, she also understands how a subtly enhanced appearance can greatly improve self-esteem and confidence, and is an expert with the use of lasers and injectables with a light touch. She seeks to offer personalised stratagies for each individual patient, bridging the gap between traditional dermatology and beauty.

Dr Stephanie Ho is fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese.

Dr Stephanie answered readers questions on: 

  • Causes of skin cancer
  • Types of skin cancer
  • How to tell if moles are cancerous
  • Treatment options for skin cancer in Singapore

How Do You Know If Your Mole Is Cancerous? An Experienced Skin Doctor Gives Us The Low-Down

Moles are kind of like our old friends. After all, they tend to stick around longer than some people in our lives. 

Ranging in size, shape, and colour, most moles seem to be pretty harmless. Some find them a nuisance because they appear at undesirable spots, while others consider their moles to be a special thing that make them unique.

But what if that mole that you've dismissed is potentially a sign of skin cancer?

Here's what an experienced dermatologist, Dr Stephanie Ho, has to say about the questions that she always gets asked.

There are a few possibilities for this appearance such as capillaritis, eczema or a vasculitis. It will be best for you to visit a trusted dermatologist so that we can ask you some questions and have a closer look at your skin before deciding on the most appropriate management. ...

Dear Alexis From your photo, it does look like a blue naevus but you should still get it examined under dermoscopy by a Dermatologist to be sure. A blue naevus is actually a harmless mole that grows deep in the skin and has a bluish black colour. It may have become a little ir...

Dear Sirada Sorry to hear you have been troubled by melasma for years. This is chronic pigmentary condition that can be challenging to treat. Lasers would certainly not be my first choice of treatment as it can actually worsen melasma if the parameters used are too aggressive. ...

Dear Allan Sorry to see that you are still suffering from acne and acne scarring. I believe you need to restart the isotretinoin and we need to review the dosage and duration. From your photos, you continue to have a lot of underlying comedones (blackheads) and these need to be addressed. ...

Dear Mw1221 It is quite common for acne to leave red marks as they heal. These will gradually fade with time, provided active acne is treated and no new acne spots form. Lasers can be used to treat these marks to result in faster lightening. I often use the VBEAM pulsed dye la...

Hello From your photo, you have several depressed box and pitted scars on the cheek. In my opinion, the best option would be to treat with an aggressive fractional CO2 laser to induce formation of new collagen and improve appearance of the skin. This can also be combined with ...
