Phototherapy (light therapy) reduces inflammation and benefits skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Eczema, and Skin Lymphoma. Phototherapy uses the ultra-violet part of the sun’s spectrum, but filers out the most damaging rays of sunlight. It is an efficient way of treating large and challenging body areas.
Biologic and small molecule therapies target specific parts of cells and cell products (biomarkers) to allow more precise and targeted treatment of inflammatory conditions (such as eczema, psoriasis, lupus etc.) and cancers. They are generally more effective than earlier internal treatments and potentially have fewer side effects. They are mostly only available through specialists as detailed understanding of their proper use is important. Newer biologics may be only accessible through clinical trials. Our experienced nurse works with our specialists to ensure that administrative needs are dealt with efficiently.
Man or machine? Specialist dermatologist skin examination has been the gold standard for skin assessment for the earliest detection and treatment of melanomas and other skin cancers. In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has significantly improved in its ability to help with accurate skin cancer diagnosis although it remains a tool in evolution. Both human experts and current AI technology are nonetheless still imperfect. However, by combining specialist expertise and leading AI capabilities, we seek to best monitor skin & eliminate skin cancer as early as possible.
