Dermatology deals with disease and cosmetic problems of the skin, nails and hair.

Common skin, hair and nails treatment in Singapore

  • Excision and treatment of skin cancer

  • Allergy testing

Read this post for more information on seeing a dermatologist in Singapore.

The gold standard remains the Q-switched laser for tattoo removal. My preferred method is to use the PicoWay laser because it spares the thicker hairs from turning white, is generally accepted to be less painful and have a quicker recovery time compared to Q-Switched lasers. I...

Sorry to hear that you are bothered by these spots since the age of 12. Apart from all the possible causes listed by Dr Ker, the other common diagnosis is keratosis pilaris, which is a common and harmless inheritable skin condition that is caused by the build up of skin around your ...

Hi, Thank you for your question. It is a broad one, and perhaps we could discuss a tailored treatment plan for you based on your history and doing a physical examination, or a picture of your nails. Your doctor may do some tests such as examination of a specimen of your nail under m...

Hi It looks like you had quite a severe burn over your left leg that has recovered with a large patch of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I do not see any scarring over the patch which is a good thing. It looks like the hydroquinone and Arbutin cream has not worked well. I am not sure of th...

Thank you for the question and very clear photo. Seborrheic keratosis are harmless age spots that affect a lot of us as we get older. These are easily removed for cosmetic improvement. For large raised ones as in the photo, we will usually numb the area with a quick numbing injec...

It really depends on the scar shape and size, as well as the exact location of the scar. The most simple factor is size. Punch excisions cannot be performed for scars which are too wide because they would cause "dog ears" to form upon surgical closure. In those instances, an ...

Bumps on the face, especially around the eyes, can be one of many things - syringomas, sebaceous hyperplasia, true milia, seborrheic keratosis, and so on. Certain lesions are easily removed and, when done properly, should not recur too soon. These include milia and seborrheic ker...

Thank you for your question. Excision of ice pick scars can be performed by a doctor or dermatologist experienced in skin surgery. A quick numbing injection will numb the area completely. The ice pick area can then be cut out surgically and a few stitches applied to close the wound....

Thank you for the question. Do consult a dermatologist to have your nails assessed as discolouration can be due to different possible causes. Commonly, it may be discoloured and rough due to trauma from tight shoes or ill fitting footwear. It may also be discoloured due to ongoin...
