Skin screening has been made available in our health screening packages. For individuals without symptoms or complaints we examine the entire body surface and take note of any suspicious lesions or premalignant changes. We evaluate meticulously with dermatoscope and ensure no underlying autoimmune / allergy / cancerous skin problem would be missed
If You can Spot It You Can Stop It
This saying is very true when it comes to skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma. A dark spot or a mole or a naevi on our skin, when found getting bigger, changing in color and becomes unusual, need to be examined using dermatoscope.
Our skin specialist will perform a minor skin surgery under local anaesthesia should any need arise. The suspicious lesion will be removed (biopsied) with minimal pain and discomfort. The specimen then will be sent for histopathological confirmation.
Itch - the most unbearable feeling in the universe
There are 101 reasons why someone is feeling itchy. It could be allergy, infection, STD (sexually transmitted diseases), insect bite, autoimmune disorders, kidney failure, followed by an exhaustive list.
Our skin clinic provides a wide range of diagnostic services. We are equipped with UV Wood's lamp to help identify skin infection, additional skin scraping and culture to figure out the infected species. We do allergy test as well as autoimmune profile.
We have introduced OPTIGEN ASEAN Panel since April 2014 to help patients with intractable itch finding the specific allergen. 36 specific IgE (including seafood, nuts, mild, latex, molds etc) will be checked using only 8cc of blood sample.

Varicose veins usually don't cause any pain. Signs you may have varicose veins include:
When painful signs and symptoms occur, they may include:
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but they're smaller. Spider veins are found closer to the skin's surface and are often red or blue. They occur on the legs, but can also be found on the face. Spider veins vary in size and often look like a spider's web.
These factors increase your risk of developing varicose veins:
Endovenous ablation has replaced stripping and ligation as the technique for elimination of saphenous vein reflux. One of the endovenous techniques is a radiofrequency-based procedure. Newer methods of delivery of radiofrequency were introduced in 2007. Endovenous procedures are far less invasive than surgery and have lower complication rates. The procedure is well tolerated by patients, and it produces good cosmetic results. Excellent clinical results are seen at 4-5 years, and the long-term efficacy of the procedure is now known with 10 years of experience.
