Dermatology

The Department of Dermatology at Apollo Bramwell Hospital offers the latest treatments for skin diseases as well as the latest in cosmetic dermatology.

We offer expert treatment for disorders like vitiligo (leukoderma), psoriasis, acne and eczema as well as treatment for complex dermatological cases including toxic epidermal necrolysis, Stevens Johnson syndrome, and drug reactions, etc. We also offer specialized care for pigmentary disorders, leprosy and sexually transmitted diseases.

In addition to traditional dermatology, Apollo Bramwell Hospital offers a number of cosmetic dermatology procedures, most of which can be obtained on an outpatient basis. We are achieving excellent results with microdermabrasion to treat facial scars due to acne, chickenpox, etc. We also offer variable pulsed light (VPL) treatment for permanent reduction of unwanted hair. Unlike other types of hair removal treatment, VPL is effective for all skin types.

Our Department of Dermatology has a Dream Pulse CO2 Laser and also radio frequency cautary to treat any skin growth like warts, skin tags and moles, etc. In addition, we perform dermatosurgical procedures like autologous mini punch grafting for stable and localized vitiligo, leukoderma due to burns, piebaldism, inactive discoid lupus erythematosus, and other stable disease states causing permanent depigmentation. It is a safe, easy, and inexpensive method, with very good success rates.
