Singapore has great doctors and a really good public health system that makes it a lot easier, and quite a bit more affordable, for the people who live there, the permanent residents and the nationals, to get their healthcare. The same can be said for the dermatologists working in Singapore and in this article we will be talking about the two different types of dermatologists that are in Singapore and what they can do for you.
So the first type of dermatologists are the ones that practice medical dermatology and stick to procedures that are to do with dealing with skin diseases, skin cancer, and treating various health or life threatening problems of the skin. They can deal with things such as acne, skin allergies and rashes, hair loss, melanoma, auto immune skin disorders, eczema, psoriasis, pediatric dermatology, and as previously mentioned, cancer.
The other category is the cosmetic dermatologists that change aspects of the skin to help with the aesthetics of a person. They usually deal with things that are not threatening or affecting the life or health of a person but are something they would like to get changed. They can deal with things such as mole removal, botox treatment, laser surgery, thread lifts, injecting fillers, and excision surgery, among others as well.
Now, given the nature of the work, a lot of these procedures from the two categories are used alongside each other for the same patient. Dermatology is often a mix of both medical and cosmetic surgeries and treatments. However there are a few procedures and treatments that are completely cosmetic or completely medical and they may be differently applicable procedures. They often end up requiring a good dermatologist Singapore side who is a specialist in their own specific category.
