(3) Our Strengths

We have a Specialist Interest in the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis/Eczema

The treatment of eczema can be complex, with a range of treatments available such as topical therapies with steroidal and moisturizing treatments, as well as more complex oral therapies. Additionally, since 2017, we commenced treatments of injectable medicine (monoclonal antibodies treatments). The treatments have revolutionized the way we treat and approach eczema treatments in recent years and helped to improve the quality of life for some patients even in some of the cases with severe treatment resistant atopic dermatitis.

We always try to value our patient’s participation at our department. We therefore frequently devote our time on educating our patients about their lifestyle modifications and treatment regimens, which are often important part of the eczema management.

We offer Comprehensive Treatments for Varicose Veins

We provide a wide range of treatments for varicose veins. Varicose vein is a condition in which the walls of the blood vessel in the legs swell. Common causes of varicose veins may include prolonged standing and obesity.

At our specialist outpatient clinic, we provide surgical treatments where we strip off the blood vessels, high ligation therapies as well as the laser treatments depending on the state of the patients. These surgeries can be done with a simple overnight hospital admission.

We offer Laser Therapy

We provide laser therapy for a wide range of conditions for the purposes of thinning bruises/stains and treating small tumors.

We have the right laser to treat a wide range of conditions. For example we have “Q Switch Alexander Light Laser” for the treatment of bruises (e.g “Mongolian spot”) and post traumatic pigmentations and we also use “Pulsed Dye Laser” for the treatments of telangiectasia.

Some laser therapies may require only single treatment, while some require multiple treatments with intervals of few months between the treatments.

We value communication with our patients and would always try to provide sufficient explanation prior to the treatments. We would be happy to answer any questions that you may have, including the expected time taken for the improvement post treatments.

In addition, we provide skin surgeries for common skin tumors such as epidermoid cysts.
Some skin conditions may not be always be covered by the Japanese National Health Insurance. In those cases, we would be happy to discuss with you about your treatment options and the estimated cost.

  • *please note we do not currently offer some cosmetic treatments such as chemical peeling, wrinkle treatments or piercing.

Message for Our Patients

We are currently witnessing some of the most rapid progression in advancement of medical treatments and we are able to treat skin diseases that were difficult to treat in the past. However, there are still quite a few refractory skin diseases, which often require long standing treatments.
We are continuously working to improve satisfaction for our patients. However, we also appreciate your kind understanding that some skin diseases may require time for improvement. We hope to continue to work together with our patients in order to ensure the best outcome for our patients.
