Dermatologists treat patients of all ages with a range of skin disorders.
Dermatology covers multiple areas including cosmetic treatments, medical dermatology, skin surgery and, skin cancer management. We are proud to facilitate specialist dermatologists who can help assess your symptoms and maintain your skin health.
There are a wide variety of problems that can affect your skin. Many diagnostic procedures can be carried out such as blood tests, x-rays or skin biopsies to determine a diagnosis. Skin conditions that are treated by a dermatologist include:
UVB narrowband phototherapy is a form of light therapy, that involves exposing your skin to ultraviolet B (UVB) light. UVB light is naturally present in sunlight and can be an effective treatment for skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and vitiligo.
This is a treatment used by men and women to remove unwanted facial and body hair. Your dermatologist will pass a laser through the affected area to kill unwanted hair and reduce further growth. However, laser hair removal is not a permanent hair removal solution and you may need regular sessions to prevent regrowth.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is used to treat certain forms of skin cancer. PDT involves applying a light-sensitising cream to the affected area of your skin. After your cells have absorbed this cream, your dermatologist will shine red light emitting diodes on the targeted area to activate it. This destroys cancerous skin cells.
To remove an epidermoid cyst, your surgeon will make an elliptical (oval) cut over the cyst and then remove it. This process is also carried out to remove moles. However, your surgeon will make a straight cut into your skin to remove a lipoma.
To familarise yourself with how skin conditions are diagnosed by dermatology Consultants, you can read our summary of what happens during your dermatology consultation. At your consultation, your Consultant will discuss treatment plans to improve your symptoms.
