At KL Dermatologist – Medical or general dermatology services typically involve the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for diseases of the skin, hair, lips and mouth. As internal diseases can also affect the skin, trained medical dermatologists at KL Dermatologist will take the time to analyse the affected area through a visual examination and then treat the patient’s condition.
As the human skin is the largest organ of the body, and serves as a way to filter what goes in and out of the body, there are different internal and external factors that can affect the health and condition of a person’s skin. Medical dermatologists are familiar with all of these issues, and they are able to use their broad knowledge base to create a diagnosis and treatment plan that best helps their patients deal with the skin condition they have.
Skin conditions that you can seek a medical dermatologist’s help range from things like acne, eczema, alopecia areata, bacterial skin infections, keloids, psoriasis and even viral warts. If you are experiencing skin concerns or issues, contact our friendly and courteous staff at KL Dermatologist today to set up your first appointment.

Below are just some of the common issues that we at KL Dermatologist are experienced with KL Dermatologist
Acne (also called acne vulgaris) is a common skin condition that affects both teenagers and adults. It affects the skin’s oil glands and hair follicles. Small holes in the skin called pores connect to oil glands under the skin via canals called follicles. The oil glands make an oily substance called sebum while inside hair follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin as waste. These follicles have hair growing out of the skin as well. Sometimes hair, dead cells and sebum clump together into a plug, clogging the follicle and bacteria grows on the plug. This causes a swelling under the skin surface which eventually turns into acne treatment. Acne primarily affects areas of the skin with a relatively high number of oil glands, including the face, upper part of the chest, and back. Acne is usually not a serious health threat. However, if left untreated or if treated poorly it can cause scarring.

It involves the treatment of a variety of conditions including acne scars, age spots, facial and spider veins, milia, pigmentation, wrinkles and unwanted hair.

The majority of these imperfections are related to the skin, in particular the face, while a few treatments address the nails, scalp and hair.
Some forms of aesthetic dermatology may address chronic skin conditions such as eczema and acne. These can be treated via chemical peels or light therapy. Other skin conditions such as spider veins can be removed via laser treatments. Botox injections are a common cosmetic procedure to address signs of ageing, such as multiple fine lines or wrinkles.
The skin suffers from wear and tear with use and with time. The causes of wear and tear can be divided into intrinsic or extrinsic. Intrinsic wear and tear occurs with the passage of time and varies according to the person’s genetic factors. Extrinsic wear and tear occurs through exposure to external factors such as Sun exposure, smoking and environmental pollution. Aesthetic dermatology treatments emphasise on restoring the health and appearance of the skin that occurs through both intrinsic and extrinsic wear and tear.
Stubborn Acne mark removal is also something that we at Nathan Skin, Hair & Laser Center specialise in.

Bacterial skin infections can cause painful boils on the body, and occasionally blisters as well. In children, impetigo is a common condition that is highly contagious and requires effective antibiotic therapy. Some patients have recurrent bacterial infections involving the hair follicles, and this causes pimple-like bumps to appear on areas such as the scalp and buttocks.
