Dermatology

FOURTEEN

Dermatology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of

diseases of the skin, hair, nails and adjacent mucous membranes.

As well as medical conditions, such as acne, warts and psoriasis,

and problems such as scars and age-related skin deterioration.

Our Consultants use the latest evidence-

based treatment techniques, for example,

the controlled use of drugs and the latest

innovations in intense light therapy for the

treatment of acne. They also have the skills,

experience and equipment to perform a

wide range of treatments, including:

• Cryosurgery

• Excision

• Injections

• Pharmacovigilance

These treatments can help manage and

treat persistent skin problems, such as acne

and eczema, and they can also be used to

effectively treat more serious conditions

such as skin cancer.Whilst both melanoma

and non-melanoma skin cancer can often

be treated and even cured, it is important

to stay aware of any changes in your skin or

moles as catching the condition early is key

to ensuring the best possible prognosis.

Our specialist Consultant, Dr Sandy Flann,

has recently obtained a postgraduate MSc

in Allergy at Imperial College so she can

bring the most up-to-date innovations and

knowledge in this rapidly developing area to

her patients.

“I see adult and paediatric patients with

inflammatory skin disease (eczema, psoriasis),

skin lesions, skin cancers, mole checks, vulval

skin disease, allergic skin disease, hair and

nail disease. I also operate on skin lesions

(benign and malignant), treat warts and inject

scars on an outpatient basis at Sevenoaks

Medical Centre.”

Dr Flann holds clinics at Sevenoaks

Medical Centre every Tuesday morning

and afternoon.
