Dermatology Department


Skin lesions accompany internal diseases such as connective tissue diseases, and the number of patients requiring advanced operations for skin tumors is on the rise. In order to correspond to these patients, we have developed a system by organizing internal conferences with the Immuno-Rheumatology Center, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Radiology departments. We value our partnership with our neighboring clinics, in order to care for patients with general to severe skin diseases and correspond to our foreign patients.

Diseases and Expertise

Skin disease in general

We put much effort in diagnosis/treatment of patients with skin diseases associated with internal diseases such as connective tissue diseases, foot care for patients with diabetes or kidney failure, and those requiring long-term follow-up with disorders such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. We conduct local anesthesia for skin tumor operations so that our patients can go home on the same day. Wire treatment for ingrown nails, laser treatment for senile lentigines, hydroquinone drug treatments, chemical peeling for refractory acne, and Finasteride (Propecia ®) oral treatment for male pattern alopecia (AGA) are available as treatments not covered by insurance.


Ultraviolet treatments such as full body Narrow Band UVB treatments and PUVA for arms and legs are available.

Q-switch laser and V-beam laser for aesthetic treatments and chemical peels for refractory acne are available as treatments not covered by insurance. Skin allergy exams for metals/antigens such as patch tests or scratch tests are conducted for certain diseases.
