What we do Doctors at King’s College Hospital, Dubai specialise in diagnosing and treating a wide range of skin disorders, including cancer. Our multidisciplinary team includes dermatologists, plastic surgeons, oncologists and nurses who provide specialist care for complex skin cancer. We provide a comprehensive dermatology service to assess, diagnose and treat pre-malignant lesions, irregular or changing moles, warts, acne, eczema and other problems affecting the skin, hair or nails. In many cases, we can carry out diagnostic biopsies during the same appointment.
We also offer skin damage treatments, as well as anti-ageing treatments using advanced techniques and laser therapy. Other treatments include: creams, medication, light treatment (phototherapy), cryotherapy and surgery.
Acne treatments: in most cases, acne can be managed using lotions and gels that are available from pharmacies. However, if the acne is very severe, we may be able to prescribe antibiotics, phototherapy (light therapy) and, for some women, hormonal medication.
Birthmarks and scars: we use the latest laser therapy techniques to treat birthmarks and scars
Children’s dermatology: we treat eczema and other inflammatory skin diseases, as well as skin infections, vascular malformations and birthmarks; hair and nail problems; vitiligo (pale patches on the skin); and rare skin conditions including autoimmune diseases, ichthyosis (thick, dry and scaly skin); and ectodermal dysplasia (abnormal development of skin, hair, nails, teeth or sweat glands).
Cosmetic dermatology including anti-ageing therapies: our specialists can evaluate your skin type and design a personalised treatment regime for your skin. We will also give you a clear guidance regarding overall skin care and can offer laser therapy to treat wrinkles and acne.
Other cosmetic services that we offer include:
- Anti-wrinkle injections
- Correction of uneven pigmentation
- Dermal filler
- Facial peeling

Eczema: we provide specialised care for both children and adults with severe eczema, and have a dedicated treatment and phototherapy department
Genetic conditions: we take skin biopsies and carry out genetic testing for a number of disorders. Conditions that we treat include: ichthyosis and palmoplantar keratoderma (which caused thickened skin); ectodermal dysplasia (which affects the hair, nails, teeth and sweat glands); and pachyonychia congenital (causing thickened nails and skin problems)
Hidradenitis suppurativa: we can diagnose and treat this long-term condition, which causes abscesses and scarring, often around the groin, buttocks, breasts and armpits
Mole screening: we examine moles, analysing them using the latest technology to check for signs of skin cancer
Oral dermatology: we see patients with severe mucocutanous disease that results in blistering in the mouth, including pemphigus, pemphigoud and lichen planus
