Overview

Prince Court aims to create an environment that provides a conducive and excellent service within Dermatology, which also includes Venereology (Sexually transmitted infections/diseases).

What Does a Dermatologist Do? 

 

Our dermatologists are committed in continuously updating their knowledge to provide the latest evidence-based treatment for their patients. 

Prince Court provides  a comprehensive care for its patients. This enables our dermatologists to collaborate and network with the other sub-specialties if necessary, to ensure the best treatment possible is provided to the patients for maximum benefit.

Dermatology is comprised of medical and cosmetic/aesthetic (appearance-based) dermatology. Medical dermatology consists of various skin diseases, including hair, nail and mucous membrane.  Cosmetic/aesthetic or appearance-based dermatology, is defined as enhancement of appearance appropriate to the age of the individual.  

 

Why Should You Choose Prince Court’s Dermatology Centre?

Our dermatologists are dedicated to providing compassionate care to patients of all ages. With a focus on skin health, our team of accredited dermatologists, nurses and support staff are committed to addressing your dermatological concerns and helping you achieve a healthy and beautiful skin, appropriate for your age. 

Skin conditions may have a tremendous psychosocial impact on a person including the quality of life. Our experienced dermatologists have the expertise to help you with any skin disease, including hair and nail, as well as any of your cosmetic/aesthetic concerns.  

A detailed history and a thorough examination will usually help in making an accurate diagnosis. Some patients may require investigations to arrive at the diagnosis. The appropriate treatment and personalised care will then be rendered to meet your needs.

    • There is rise in the common sexually transmitted infection in the world as well as in Malaysia. These include genital warts, herpes genitalis, gonorrhoea, syphilis, chlamydia infection, nongonococcal urethritis, and HIV infection.

    • Some of the infections seen in the genital area are not sexually transmitted but sexually transmissible. This includes diseases such as molluscum contagiosum, and scabies.

    • Untreated or treated late, the sequelae may have a tremendous physical, financial,  and psychosocial impact or burden on the patient and family as well as the country as a whole.  

    • In Malaysia, the dermatologists have been specially trained to treat sexually transmitted diseases / infections (STDs/STIs). We work very closely with other specialists to treat any sequelae or complications that may arise. To avoid any complications, early treatment is of utmost importance. 

At Prince Court, we aim to enhance your dermatological care experience. Our dedicated team work closely with other specialists such as plastic surgeons, general surgeons, oncologists, orthopaedic surgeons, infectious disease and other physicians, and paediatricians, to provide a comprehensive and integrated care for complex cases.
