Dermatologists provide diagnosis and treatment for conditions of the skin, hair and nails. Common dermatological conditions include acne, eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea. Whether you are experimenting excessive sweating, rashes, skin infections, a changing mole, or are seeking advice about a birthmark, we can help you choose the right approach and treatment.
Moles are often harmless, but they can be irritating and catch on clothing and jewellery alike. Occasionally, they can be a sign of cancer. Clinical guidelines recommend having your moles checked by an expert every six months at a minimum. If you’ve had a mole removed, it’s every three months.
Our dermatologist can provide mole and skin cancer screening, mole mapping, cryotherapy and mole removal.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterised by excessive sweating, usually in areas where there is a high concentration of sweat glands such as the hands, feet, armpits and the groin area.
Underarm excessive sweating, also called axillary hyperhidrosis causes an individual to produce excessive sweat in the underarm regions. This can be can create significant discomfort, and be an annoying, embarrassing, and isolating problem. Excessive sweating in the underarms can be managed with small infiltrations of Botox®.
Botox® injections are very shallow, injected just below the surface of the skin, and block the nerves that supply the eccrine glands; which in turn, prevent the glands from producing sweat.
Cryotherapy is a non-surgical treatment involving the removal of skin lesions using liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin cells until they die. It can be used to treat a wide variety of superficial benign lesions. However, it is best suited for treating basal cell carcinomas, seborrheic keratosis, viral warts, actinic keratosis, and Bowen’s disease.
