The care you deserve
Patient care, transparency and sincerity are the cornerstones that guide our approach to every treatment, especially surgical procedures. From removal of skin cancers, to reconstructing cutaneous defects, eliminating pigmentary discolorations and improving cosmetic blemishes, we cater to each and every type of skin condition that needs surgical intervention with utmost care and compassion.
This includes focusing on the management of the skin, hair, nails and veins. Each procedure is individualised depending on the location on the body, patient’s age and previous treatments to the area. Due to clinical advances and new technology, the majority of dermatologic surgeries are now minimally invasive, requiring only local or regional anaesthesia. This provides patients with improved patient safety while reducing recovery time with minimal scarring.
Some of the conditions requiring surgical intervention include benign skin growths such as warts, tags, and cysts; hair loss requiring hair transplantation surgery; as well as a range of cancerous skin problems such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and Bowen’s disease for which Mohs Micrographic Surgery – generally regarded worldwide as the gold standard for Non-Melanoma skin cancer removal, is available.
To adhere to the Ministry of Health’s guidelines, we are not allowed to post any before-and-after photos of the procedures. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please visit our clinic for more information regarding the services.
CRYOTHERAPY & CRYOSURGERY
Cryotherapy refers to a treatment in which surface skin lesions are frozen. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses extremely cold liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy abnormal tissue that requires elimination. It is also referred to as cryosurgery or cryoablation.
Common indications for Cryotherapy:
- Viral warts
- Seborrhoeic keratoses
- Actinic keratoses
- Molluscum contagiosum
- Skin tags
The following skin cancers may also be suitable for Cryotherapy if performed by a dermatologist with appropriate training and after evaluation of all possible modalities:
- Superficial basal cell carcinoma
- Squamous cell carcinoma-in-situ
- Cryotherapy using liquid nitrogen involves the use of Cryospray or a cotton-tipped applicator
- Nitrogen is applied to skin lesion for a few seconds, depending on the type and diameter, as well as depth of freeze
- Treatment is repeated till thawing is completed
Usually, no special attention is needed during the healing phase. The treated area may be gently washed once or twice daily and should be kept clean. A dressing is optional but is advisable if the affected area is subject to trauma or if clothes rub on it.
